Tim Burton: A Select Filmography

Why is it whenever I see a picture of Tim Burton - born on this day in 1958 - I hear theremin music? Seriously, this guy makes my little goth heart flutter - and since he's shacked up with Helena Bonham Carter, the Queen of the Goths herself - even more so. Burton's last cinematic offerings were 2009's animated 9 and the much-anticipated Alice in Wonderland (co-starring Johnny Depp) which debuted in Spring 2010.  Next up is Burton's own take on the eerie 1960s soap opera Dark Shadows...

Me too! And since I only learned about it today while doing research for this post '9' looks very interesting too.
