OVERRATED: Tim Burton's recent arc

With the campy "Dark Shadows' in theaters, we have to wonder if Tim Burton has any interest in surprising us any longer. Ever since the heartfelt and beautifully quirky "Ed Wood," Burton has specialized in churning out what could be called "Tim Burton Movies," the sort of films that may be visually dazzling and often require Johnny Depp in goth-adjacent costume. It's entertaining to look at, but Burton could give us so much more.TOSHIFUMI KITAMURA, AFP/Getty Images
