Tim Burton, the king of spooky cool and curator of '90s kids’ favorite movies from childhood, is coming out with a new lady-centered movie, Big Eyes.
The film is a true story about Margaret Keane, an artist from the 1950s played by Amy Adams, who specialized in painting images of children with freakishly huge eyes. But her husband Walter, played by the charming Christoph Waltz, is not such a charming character. In fact, he’s kind of a jerk.
When Margaret’s paintings gain recognition, Walter takes credit for them and achieves fame and fortune. Read More

All of the colors used are neon and supersaturated but still retain a very vintage glow. Read More

This is especially true of his latest fantasia, Dark Shadows, but that doesn’t keep the film from being a spooky good time. Read More

A few weeks ago, before Intern Anna left our presence here at BUST HQ, she had a status update on Facebook that left me stunned:
'edward skizrhands is probably the only good tim burton movie'
Whaaaaaaaaa? Anna and I had a discussion about it later and she corrected herself, saying that Big Fish was also another good Burton film. What about Batman? Beetle Juice? Frankenweenie? Pee-Wee's Big Adventure? Ed Wood? For a Tim Burton aficionado like myself, reading someone dissing a director whose style I find endlessly fascinating was a kick to my lady-parts. Read More
