Excerpt: Tim Burton used to be a phenomenal filmmaker. In the early years of his career he was making movies that looked like nothing else on the planet and crafting strange-yet-wonderful stories to propel them. For the last decade, however, Burton has been doing nothing but remakes and rehashes of stories we’ve all seen before, tinging them with same Burton-esque feel that he established in the early days of his career.
Excerpt: Perhaps if you�re a fan of the original cult TV show, Dark Shadows might hold a smidgen of interest; for everyone else however, it�s somewhat of a gorgeous bore. The eighth collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp isn�t a complete disaster yet somewhere along the way, more focus was put on making everything look the part with little thought given to the story that plays out in the stunningly realised sets.
