Cinema Review: Director Tim Burton

Tim Burton is one of the most unique visionary directors in Hollywood, defining a new genre of film with his twisted imagination. Besides the similarity of having been made by the same director, there are also many other similarities between his films. For example, his film style is able to be seen clearly throughout the films, Edward Scissorhands (1991), Corpse Bride (2005) and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007). All three of these movies showing Burton’s easily identifiable film style. The characteristics that are similar across these films are the flashbacks, the actors and actresses, the characters, the use of costume, makeup and lighting. Similarities can also be seen through the themes and genres including, German Expression and fantasy. Burton incorporates characters in his films that no one would encounter in real life, such as you would never find a ghost who wants to marry a human in real life or someone who is able to chop hedges with his scissorhands. His films are characteristically quirky and unusual, however somehow making it

relatable and identifiable which make them so popular with the audience.

One style that Tim Burton’s films are strongly influenced is the German Expressionism codes and conventions. This foreign film style is an artistic genre that originated in Europe in the 1920s and is broadly defined as the rejection of Western conventions (Darsa, 2013). The artist’s impression of reality is widely distorted for emotional effect. The elements of this particular film style may involve lighting that employs extreme contrasts of light and dark therefore making dramatic shadows in the film. The film style also concentrates on mirrors, glass and other reflective surfaces. German Expressionist film also gave human characteristics and human behaviour to nonhuman objects. Distorted shapes and lines in set design were used and all of these film styles were notable for their dark themes of insanity, horror, death and fatality which are translated through the film’s narrative and the mise-en-scene (Expressionism, 2012).

Edward Scissorhands is about a nearly complete young man named Edward who tries to have a normal life as an ordinary person. In the film, the castle that is Edward’s home is definitely influenced by German Expressionism. The windows, beams and pillars are broken and old suggesting that Edward is alone and he is secluded from the rest of the world since the place where he lives is dangerous and threatening. The broken windows also shows the characteristic of distorted shapes and lines that German Expressionist film often had to suggest a warped perspective of the world. The set of the film also include with chiaroscuro lighting which contrasted the lighting between light and dark which was often used in German Expressionism film. In Edward Scissorhands the lighting changes are between Edward’s home and the rest of the town which is again showing the separation that Edward has with the town. Furthermore, the costumes style is also very gothic (German Expressionism, 2012). For example, Edward’s costume is black and features several metal buckles and his makeup consists of a pale face with dark eye makeup and messy hair which is reminiscent of 1920’s horror films. The music and audio that are in the movie is also rather gothic influenced which creates the feeling to the viewers of mystery and horror. All these gothic elements further show that German Expressionism did influence this film (Imaginary Cinema, n.d.).

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is also seen to be influenced by the film style German Expressionism. Sweeney Todd is about Benjamin Barker who is accused of a crime he did not commit and after 15 years, he comes back with a new identity. With his new name, Sweeney Todd seeks out revenge against the Judge who accused him of the crime (Critical Outcast, 2007). Tim Burton used German Expressionism throughout the entire movie by using low key lighting. This type of lighting was always used to show the conflict, mysterious part of the characters or to show the sadness and how disappointed the character was. The setting in the movie is also gothic styled, by the buildings and the shops that are seen. Most part of the movie is in black and white and streets are in darker shades (German Expressionism, 2012).

In the final example, Corpse Bride, about Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot that is being forced into marriage which seems to be going smoothly. Victor puts the ring on what looks like a branch when he practices his vows. The branch ends up being the finger of a deceased bride Emily, who now thinks they are married. He is then dragged to the Land of the Dead where it is nearly impossible to return, meaning Victor needs to choose between risking Victoria’s life or giving up his own. This film is influenced by German Expressionism as the main character does not fit in the society that he is in. In the Land of the Living, the buildings all have sharp angles; all of them are cold and have a shadowy effect to them, like German expressionist films.

There is also many more similarities in Tim Burton films, for example the flashbacks that are used. In the Corpse Bride, Emily, the deceased bride sings about her nasty death. In Sweeney Todd, Sweeny remember his family before they were taken away from him and in Edward Scissorhands the film has numerous flashbacks throughout the film of the Inventor who made Edward. Tim Burton uses the flashbacks to tell the story in a different way and revealing more information to the audience about the characters in the films. Another similarity across Tim Burton film is the same actors and actresses that are used. In each of the three examples Johnny Depp is seen and Helena Bonham-Carter is seen in Corpse Bride and Sweeney Todd.

Lastly, the characters are also very similar in each of the films. For example, in most of Tim Burton’s films there is a skittish and weird character that never really fits into the world that they live in. In Edward Scissorhands, Edward is seen as the outcast, living in the castle alone and when he walks through the town, he is judged by everyone who sees him because he is different. In Sweeney Todd, Sweeney is the outcast who is convicted on a crime and then taken away from his family and in Corpse Bride; Victor Van Dort is the skittish and weird outcast as he doesn’t fit into the world that he is in (Woerner, 2012).

Burton’s films are all very similar by having the same themes, genres and ideas across each of his films. This is evident in Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. All three films have been influenced by German Expressionism. It can also been seen that they are similar by having small flashbacks, the same actors and actresses and the characters have a similar part in the story. Overall, a ‘Tim Burton’ film is unforgettably quirky and unusual somehow making them relatable. As said by Burton himself, “One person’s crazyness is another person’s reality”.…...

...TIM HORTON’S AND ITS ENCOURAGEMENT OF SOCIAL DIFFERENCE Tim Horton’s, the name that pops up during work breaks, school breaks, the name that has surrounded every corner of the city in Canada and the name that you expect to see on the cup everyone is holding when drinking coffee, but does Tim Horton’s apply to everyone? Does everyone value its service or is it only given appreciated by some? Tim Horton’s was opened in 1984 and was open only to serve coffee and donuts, to some of us, that seems like a great big deal because now Tim Hortons offers a wide range of products to consume in, it has changed from being that small corner coffee shop to a break time lunch location. The city of Toronto for example is surrounded by many different coffee places at every corner of the city, franchises like Starbucks, McDonalds, Timothy’s coffee and Second Cup are only some of the popular coffee places of today’s generation but the question is, do they target the same general consumer population or do they target different groups, and the answer is yes, they are all targeted towards different social classes indirectly. When was the last time that one saw an individual experiencing homelessness was drinking a Christmas drink from Starbucks or eating a gourmet brownie from Second Cup, well the answer is hardly, unfortunately many other franchises such as the ones listed before don’t serve all cliental, meaning, their......

...Tim Burton: An Ingenious Director Do you enjoy watching heartrending fantasies? Tim Burton has directed countless films that have dramatic and depressing moods. In Edward Scissorhands a teenage outsider tries to fit in despite his unique deformity while in Big Fish a son tries to learn more about his dying father by piecing together the stories he has told over the years. This dismal mood is created through the use of close-up camera shots, low-pitched background music and full camera shots. Tim Burton uses a close- up shot in order to show the audience the character’s emotions and reactions after the occurrence of a certain event. For example, when Sandra tells Edward that she’s already engaged to Don Price, Tim uses a close up to show Edward’s reaction to Sandra’s revelation. The close up on Edward’s face allows the audience to feel sad and somewhat sorry for Edward giving this scene a heartrending mood. Another example using this cinematic technique can be found in the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when Willy Wonka’s father throws all of his Halloween candy into the burning furnace. The close up on Willy Wonka’s face shows us the sadness in Wonka’s eyes and his longing to eat a piece of chocolate without his father going to extreme measures. This demonstrates how Tim Burton can use a simple cinematic technique to create a heartrending mood throughout the scene. Tim Burton uses dramatic and depressing background music constantly throughout all of......

...Tim Burton Dark, but Lucrative Style Tim Burton has a very popular filming style that mixes his love for action-horror films and books with a sometimes funny and simple comedy style. Movies like the Grinch, The Corpses Bride, and Franken weenie have given Tim Burton films a very distinct and original look and feel to them that set his films apart from those that hovered all over Hollywood in his day.

He used many of his techniques on numerous movies like in Edward ScissorHands and in Big Fish, he used Edward in both of them, he also works with the same cast on many of his movies, working with both his wife and an actor named Johnny Depp. What Tim Burton is most notably known for working with a legendary actor named Johnny Depp on most of his movies. Between all of the movies that he has filmed the two that stand tall as the closest in relevance to each other are Dark Shadows and Edward ScissorHands. In Both movies Johnny Depp plays an outsider, a person left behind and forgotten by time, a person that tries to fit in but just doesn’t belong where he want to go. In Edward ScissorHands he is a man with Scissors for hands and in Dark Shadows he is a bloodthirsty vampire from the 17th century living in the modern 21st century. Although both movies are dark and gothic they also share a dark twisted sense of humor but also a......

Before Apple Tim worked at IBM, Intelligent Electronics, and Compaq. So let’s talk a little bit about his background and traits in leadership. Well when we look at Tim Cook and some of the various places he worked. He always hasn’t been a leader. He took a lot away from when he worked on the Macintosh side of the house of Apple he spent a lot of time with supplier relationships. When he was with Compaq he was the vice president and responsible for all of Compaq’s inventory. When Steve Jobs got sick Tim Cook had to step up and be the CEO of Apple. He had to do this three times while Jobs was out sick. When we look back at our studies on leadership, we see that there is a big difference between leaders and managers. I think Tim Cook is and would be a awesome leader to work for. This is what he said about leadership. Tim Cook "We want diversity of thought," he says. "We want diversity of style. We want people to be themselves. It's this great thing about Apple. You don't have to be somebody else. You don't have to put on a face when you go to work and be something different. But the thing that ties us all is we're brought together by values. We want to do the right thing. We want to be honest and straightforward. We admit when we're wrong and have the courage to change."

Tim Burton Analysis

...Individuality is the vibrant streak of starlight in the black night. Individuality makes you the distinctive duckling in the crowd of adorable chicks. Yet is “different” truly such an atrocious thing? Tim Burton--renowned director and producer of movies such as Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory--rebels against this common assumption by revolving his cinematic works around the importance of uniqueness. Inspired by Ray Harryhausen classic horror films and Roger Corman’s Vincent Price, he fused his contrasting light and dark moods to develop powerful themes behind his films, enhancing the value of individuality. To this day, his cinematic works empower many people with a new sense of pride in themselves. Tim Burton’s films use non-diegetic music, shot-reverse-shot, and close-up techniques to convey his thoughts about individuality and uniqueness. As long as Tim Burton uses close-ups, the unique traits of certain characters are repeatedly highlighted. Close-ups are when the images being shot take up at least 80% of the entire frame. Edward Scissorhands is a key example of Tim Burton’s ability to utilize close-up shots to add to the overall theme of individuality. Whenever Edward is using his scissor-hands--whether it’s to cut hair or chop lettuce--the scissors are consistently shown in a close-up. As a result, Edward’s hands are established as an significant feature that sets him apart from others. Similarly, in Charlie and the...

Tim Burton

...Tim Burton style is best described as a creative. He uses irony, flashbacks, and contrast colors as his techniques. One of the elements that contribute to Tim Burton’s creative style is irony. Irony is the opposite of what is expected. For example in the film Edward Scissorhands, at the beginning of the film there was a scene where Edward is all dressed up with dark colors, clothes made out of metal and his face filled with scars made by his hands that are scissors . Edward lives inside of a very dark lonely house on top of a hill. That makes the audience think that he is a monster but really he was a nice person even when Ms. Peg goes to his house he doesn't do anything bad to her. In my perspective I thought he was going to kill her because of how he looked but he didn’t. In this scene Tim Burton uses irony in order to make the audience think bad about Edward but he really isn’t he might be dressed like a monster but he is the sweetest thing ever. On the other hand Tim Burton makes the neighborhood very bright. The hoses are bright yellow, pink, green etc. All the neighbors have a daily routine but in the inside the are as cruel as a lion catching its prey. They are all talking about Edward spreading rumors but when they see how nice he can make a garden they are all being nice. That only last a while after they all want him in jail. that was impressive because they seem nice but at end they were very cruel to edward. One of the elements that......

Tim Burton's Cinematic Tecnique

...Tim Burton is a well-known American film director that has created dozens of dark movies. Two of his most famous films include the very original story of Edward Scissorhands in and his retelling of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Both films use many devices to help tell their unique stories, but Tim Burton’s expert use of lighting and camera angles cause the viewers to stay glued to the screen. One of the most powerful and visual elements any director can use to help create a story is color. Whether it is the color of the costumes, sets, or even the way the entire shot is tinted in editing, the lighting has a lot to do with how we see those colors. In both Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Burton uses bright, popping colors in many of the scenes to symbolize what most people associate with good and normal things. In the early scenes of Edward Scissorhands, Burton uses energetic colors such as bright pink, blue, and yellow with vivid green lawns to represent the happiness of suburban life. Likewise, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the colors of the candy factory are incredibly bright and are juxtaposed against the plain, dreary scenes of Charlie’s environment. Burton uses color in both of these situations to show that just because a place might be colorful, it does not mean that it is necessarily happier. Although the lighting is an obvious tool that Burton uses to create a certain mood, viewers may not realize the way the camera shoots the......
