TODAY TIM BURTON’S 18th feature film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, hits theaters. Burton is known for a gothic, extravagant visual style—and perhaps not a ton of character depth or attention to story details. But he’s directed several classics, and had a hand in big cinematic trends, from blockbuster comic book adaptations to the Disney live-action remakes. His films range from family-oriented children’s stories and niche genre adaptations to adult revenge dramas and violent mystery stories. Throughout that range he’s maintained a level of production design complexity that make his films sumptuous to behold even if the story isn’t quite spectacular. To celebrate his latest film, we went back through his entire filmography and ranked his work from worst to best.
