Ranking the Films of Tim Burton

Tim Burton was one of my favorite directors in the ’80s and into the ’90s. Things went downhill once we got to the ’00s but there were still some gems after the turn of the new millennium.

He was the first director to really tackle Batman and he gave us beloved characters like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice. His style is unique and all its own, even if it has become a caricature of itself and a hindrance in recent years.

Here are all the films he directed, ranked. The Nightmare Before Christmas isn’t here because although he created it, he didn’t direct it.

1. Ed Wood
2. Edward Scissorhands
3. Batman
4. Sleepy Hollow
5. Mars Attacks!
6. Beetlejuice
7. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure
8. Batman Returns
9. Big Eyes
10. Corpse Bride
11. Big Fish
12. Frankenweenie (animated)
13. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
14. Planet of the Apes
15. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
16. Dark Shadows
17. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
18. Alice In Wonderland
