I think a lot of people really just don't get him. People who don't understand what it feels like to be alone, people who don't stand out, অথবা people who are just normal probably don't understand the depth of his work. I mean, most of his অনুরাগী are his অনুরাগী because they can relate to his work, right?
Wow, from movie critics to close বন্ধু and my mum who is the -hardest to like something- person ever to walk the earth, it never occured to me to learn about someone who dislikes অথবা hates Tim Burton. Seriously! OK, everyone has a different taste I guess...
Because most people are scared of 'the unusual'. If something isn't the norm, people tend to be freaked out দ্বারা it. Luckily we are open minded enough to understand and enjoy the brilliant work Tim does :)
Disliking Burton's stuff has nothing to do with "not getting him" অথবা being "normal". Of all his movies, I personally only really liked Beetlejuice. It was offbeat and funny and had a great original story. But I find a lot of his work feels like rehashing of the same old ideas from পূর্ববর্তি projects. His adaptions and re-tellings like Sleepy Hollow and Alice in Wonderland tend to be formulaic and untrue to the spirit of the উৎস material. As an artist and director it feels a bit like he's a stagnant, unchanging one trick pony. আপনি know exactly what you're going to get with him. It's just a matter of time before আপনি hear Danny Elfman and Johnny Depp pops up with some eyeliner and pin stripes. Aside from that, the world isn't বিভক্ত করা into normal and weird. It's a huge spectrum and what is weird অথবা interesting for one person may not hold true for someone else. Disagreeing with my criticism of his work is fine. burton may be your perfect definition of strange and unusual but he is neither of these things to me.
He has a very distinct style that is present in all of his work, so if that's not your taste it's going to be difficult to appreciate him. Similarly, I think that's why so many people who do like him enjoy the majority of his work.
Most likely because of his style. I have a friend who doesn't like him because the stuff he makes looks too creepy for them. Which is okay! His unique style isn't for everyone. Some people like it, some people don't. Another one of my বন্ধু absolutely loves Tim Burton, so it's just the matter of preference.
