look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
Awesome director with a minor touch of insanity, among other things. Originally started working at Disney, on the animation team for The Fox and the Hound. Has since went on to direct movies such as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Mars Attacks!, as well as two shorts. Also has a freakish relationship with Danny Elfman.
Tim Burton's movies are incredible!

One of the most talented and influential directors of this generation.
With films such as:
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Edward Scissorhands
Mars Attacks!
Beetlejuice
Batman
Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

And many others....this mans unirvalled talent and imagination have made him the Cult Icon he is today.

He's also a bit mad....but who isn't eh

Kid: It's Eadible???
Willy Wonka: Everything in my factory is eat-able, even i am eat-able but that is called cannibalism and is frowned upon in most societies.

Tim Burton is a pretty movie director whos popularity with the emo and kindergoth crowds have skyrocketed through stores like Hot Topic hawking every piece of Jack Skellington, Sally the Rag Doll, and Corpse Bride merchandise available. 98% of the time, his movie scores are composed by Danny Elfman.
Kindergoth: Oh my GAWD this Tim Burton pillow has Jack Skellington on it! 70 dollars? I'll buy it! It's soooo tragic, but quirky.

Great director who directed some great movies but is not close to being the best director ever.
It's a damn shame Tim Burton has been brought up to the Hot Topic crowd.

Whipped.
Tim Burton: "Hmm, who should I cast as the female lead in my film?"
(His girlfriend (Helena Bonham Carter) looks threateningly at him)
Tim Burton: "Oh Yes! Of course honey, I'll cast you!"

Many believe that he is just a director for 14 year old slaves to the emo fad, but he is the greatest director ever and the sole person that inspired me to become a filmmaker.
Tim Burton - the greatest filmmaker ever

stupid emo kid: Oh my god, I love Nightmare Before Christmas. I have Jack Skellington bracelets. Blah blah blah. Fag fag fag.

Real fan: Shut the fuck up and get a life! Many believe that he is just a director for 14 year old slaves to the emo fad, but he is the greatest director ever and the sole person that inspired me to become a filmmaker.
