Added DiffLines:
* AuthorsSavingThrow: Some view ''Film/BigEyes'' as Burton's response to criticism that he's becoming too reliant on his SignatureStyle, through having a brighter color palate and [[Music/DannyElfman almost]] no one from his ProductionPosse showing up.

Added DiffLines:
* OldShame: One of his first films, his adaptation of ''Literature/HanselAndGretel'', is something that he is ashamed of. Considering the choices made for the film (arms grabbing sleeping children, a creepy gingerbread man trying to force a child to eat him), it's pretty understandable.

* AwesomeArt: His drawings.

Added DiffLines:
* GatewaySeries: Because he's one of the few hugely financially successful directors in Hollywood to retain a personal aesthetic, his films tend to be where movie buffs first learn to appreciate the people behind-the-scenes.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: It's so tough to appreciate his take on Film/{{Batman}} in light of Creator/ChristopherNolan's ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Considering that "[[PersonAsNoun Burtonesque]]" has now become a filmmaking term, it's impossible to imagine a time when his quirky gothic style was considered personally his. ** It's so tough to appreciate his take on Film/{{Batman}} in light of Creator/ChristopherNolan's ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''.

* TheRival: A one-sided one with Creator/KevinSmith (with Smith being the one side). The two butted heads on the failed ComicBook/{{Superman}} reboot ''Superman Lives'', which Burton was to direct and Smith to write. A few years later, Smith half-jokingly claimed that Burton's ending of his ''Literature/PlanetOfTheApes'' remake stole a gag from one of his [[ExpandedUniverse expanded Askewniverse]] comics, to which Burton gave the uncharacteristically nasty response of "I would never read anything written by Kevin Smith." [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Smith would later use this quote on the back of his autobiography]].

* HateDumb: These movies suck merely ''because'' of the fans who like them, and because I've seen ''*Insert movie here*'''s products at Hot Topic! ** What's even more bizarre is that a lot of the things the HateDumb complain about (lots of marketing and merchandise, AuthorAppeal, SignatureStyle, etc.) is common with a ''lot'' of directors, [[DoubleStandard but they don't get nearly the amount of hate]]. One suspects it's something to do with the SciFiGhetto...
