Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands...

...Sweeney Todd, Jack Skellington, the Corpse Bride

What do these characters above have in common? They were all created by mastermind Tim Burton, who just happens to be one of my favorite movie directors/producers of all time. That's the reasons that I'm dying to check out his featured exhibit at MOMA in NYC (running until April 26th). It's a behind-the-scenes look at Burton's sketchbooks, sculptures, short films, and other goodies that have earned him a place in Hollywood's hall of fame. He is such an innovator and can't really be compared to anyone else. I have a lot of respect for his films. I love them all, from Big Fish to Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and pretty much everything in between. I even mentioned last week that I can't wait to see his take on Alice in Wonderland that's coming out in March. He is the kind of person I'd like to know more about and find out what inspires all of his crazy ideas and characters. I'm hoping to make a trip down to New York to catch the show before it ends in April.

Do you have a favorite Tim Burton movie?
