Also, Burton's best films are the ones without Depp....and the best Burton/Depp collaboration is Ed Wood, which is about as far from emo as you can get.
Which is also a genuinely great, outstanding film, regardless of how you feel about Burton overall.
Anyways, Burton might be a little overrated, but he was still exceptionally talented from 1980 to 1995. In my view, he didn't make a single bad movie during that time. Sure, some were overdrawn, simplistic melodramas, with Edward Scissorhands
being the worst offender, but even there, the outstanding visual flair and humor made up for it.
As for emos liking Burton's films, who the fuck cares? Does stuie299 really base his opinions on a movie on what (a part) of its fanbase is like? Seems like an awful way to approach rating films.
