The only thing I found even remotely interesting in that article was Jane Goldman! You're slipping farkers. or are her knees too sharp?

Somewhere Danny Elfman is seeing dollar-signs while dusting off the one piece of score he's ever written.

I can see this being good. RDJ has an insane variety of characters that don't involve being smug. Pinocchio is a weird ass story (recently re-evaluated as I now have a toddler), but a very interesting idea.
Also happy to see Burton broaden his scope beyond "what can I have Johnny do this time?".

I would've liked it to be co-directed by Guillermo del Toro, just to see even weirder things.

Your saying that the Tim Burton Batman theme song is actually the theme song to a lot of other movies too? I guess I never noticed.

Depp may not be Pinocchio, but my imaginary wife still wants to sit on his face and then make him tell lies.

Meh...Pinocchio is not a fun story in general. The kid is either incredibly stupid or incredibly mean-spirited depending on the interpretation (Disney went the stupid route). Either way, it makes it pretty hard to root for him.

That stopped being clever in 1995. Even with that stated, this was the stupidest use of that ever conceived, and I'm including aspiring rappers who use dollar signs in their names in that.

We need one that is filmed in shades of gray with an "oompa oompa oompa ooompa" soundtrack.

Ooh, snap! You put DOLLAR SIGNS in place of your S's! You're soooo clever! And you're so right to point out that this new movie is probably being made for money, UNLIKE those other Pinocchio movies which were done out of the charitable goodness of the filmmakers' hearts! What a wise person you are!

You know what, my post was stupid. I knew that when I posted it. I didn't realize that Fark was a place for serious, deep discussion, particularly on the Katy Perry tab, and therefore a snark free zone. And I didn't realize that dollar signs had molested your dog - how inconsiderate of me. Now I understand your deep-seated rage at that abhorrent symbol.

Have a nice day.

Unfortunately with Tim Burton you already have a pretty good idea of what Pinocchio will look like, you know the story, so why bother seeing it?

/dude doesn't vary it up much with the art direction

No, he has Batman, a few serious scores and a shiatton of circus music.

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards and won a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition for Batman and an Emmy Award for his Desperate Housewives theme.... honored with the prestigious Richard Kirk award at the 2002 BMI Film and TV Awards....yeah, what a no talent hack.

Yeah, missed Desperate Housewives. Look, I'm not saying he isn't a good musician (I guess) but a lot of the stuff, especially what he does for Burton sounds exactly the same. It happens to a lot of film scoreres. Horner's Star Trek 2 sounds exactly like Aliens. But then he has the Scottish theme that he used with Braveheart and Titanic to fall back on. Not everyone can be John Williams.

Fair enough then. Danny Elfman is just writing to Tim Burton's rather "consistent" style. I'll buy that.

While we're hating on Burton, would someone mind telling me what they thought of Frankenwenie? I loved the old short, and it got very good reviews. I was a bit too busy to see in theatres... worth a watch?

/Burton fan
//He needs to lay off the adaptations. Alice was good. Sweeney Todd was okay, though really it would've been hard to appease fans of that source material no matter what. Similar thoughts on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Planet of the Apes blows. Never saw Dark Shadows, but the source material blows, so I doubt it's any good.
///There's a lot of good in his filmography.

Burton needs to do something original again like Franeknweenie, or his older work than reworking stuff that has already been done. I wonder how it is going to compare to Guillermo del Toro's animated version of Pinocchio. Link

demonfaerie: Burton needs to do something original again like Franeknweenie, or his older work than reworking stuff that has already been done


Frankenweenie's one I never saw because I don't have any kids to take it to and I don't like movies about dead dogs (I imagine he lets the dog die at the end but I could be wrong about that).

But stylistically it looks like a good film.

Could someone please go back in time to the early 90's and kill Tim Burton?

Thanks.
