Tim Burton | Empire Legend | Jameson Empire Awards 2012
Tim Burton

What we said...  "Tim Burton's modern-day fable succeeds beautifully as sharp comedy and achingly sad romance. The imaginative set design and spellbinding story are both superb." Read Empire's Edward Scissorhands review

"Burton continues to capture the essence of the Batman legend and more importantly his audiences imagination." Read Empire's Batman Returns review

"The reason Tim Burton is an always-in-work A-list director is that he has an uncanny knack of adapting famous material by other people - whether the Batman comics, a Roald Dahl children’s book or 'The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow' - into films that are at once value-for-money crowd-pleasers balancing charm and chills and oddly personal little exercises in his own obsessions." Read Empire's Corpse Bride review

"Burton doesn’t stint on arterial spray from cut throats (with almost pure black-and-white art direction and costuming, scarlet is often the only colour on screen) and adds his own gruesome touch, with skulls smashing when the corpses tip out of Todd’s purpose-built barber chair -a typical Tim Burton contraption - to fall head-first into the stone-floored basement." Read Empire's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street review
