Tim Burton has always been a fave of mine, his dark style of directing and darker humor have always appealed to me, we'll forgive him the planet of the apes remake, which was probably his worst movie, but lets rejoice in..

Batman, mmmm, dark, brooding
Batman return, more dark, more dark humor
Edward Scissorhands, a dark love story
Beetlejuice, makes me laugh every time
Ed Wood, quite possibly his best ever
Mars Attacks , Ack ACk ACK!
Sleepy Hollow, fond memories of this film, far to vulgar to repeat in here

Big Fish - not seen yet, on my shelf at home awaiting viewing

Charlie and..., again, not seen yet...

And of course, who can forget, although not directed by Tim, at least written and produced, The Nightmare Before Christmas, quite possibly one of my favourite films ever.

All hail Tim!

Big Fish is odd but good, Jonesy.
As a fan of Burton's, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Tim Burton for all the reasons that Mr Jones listed. Tarantino is another favorite of mine.

George Clooney is my favorite director. I watched his movie Up In The Air and i liked it very much. He is a good director and a good actor too. He played the role of Ryan Bingham in this movie. I am a fan of him.

my favorite is Tim Burton! I wouldn't say Tim Burton is the best, but that he is the most unique, no one is better at making his sort of films.

I think it's Martin Scorsese. I like almost all of his films, besides he invites to filming mostly the same actors that I like. When I was at university I wrote on the basis of this guide and film "Aviator" review and tried to state the essence of the film, its characters, etc. In general, I really remember his films.
