13 years and 9 movies later, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter split up. They were one of my favorite Hollywood couples because they’re so weird, and never fail to let their freak flag fly. I’m also fascinated with their basically 3 way marriage to Johnny Depp (I wonder how he’s feeling about this break up…)
Planet of the Apes, creepy, but iconic
Big Fish, heartbreaking and one of the weirdest endings I’ve ever seen
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, should have been continued to end the series
Corpse Bride, the first of many times acting with Johnny Deep
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a great and terrifying remake
Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street, one of my top 3 favorite musical movies
Alice in Wonderland, mad as a hatter, but I loved it
Dark Shadows, weird, but they can’t all be awesome
Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass (2016), yay, we get one more movie collaboration
If you haven’t seen any of these, go watch them (especially Sweeney Todd). Do it as a memorial to the partnership of this terrifyingly weird couple who will hopefully still make movies together for many, many years. Seriously though, They weird, twisted stories are too awesome to lose.
Really, as long as this doesn’t stop happening I’ll be so, so happy.
R.I.P. one of the greatest director/actress combos ever.
