  • Tim Burton returns to form with 'Big Eyes'

    What a yearning for the past we see in the work of Tim Burton. When he focuses on the future, he creates a movie like his undistinguished "Planet of the Apes" remake. Turn the clock back, however, and his homesick love for antique bubble gum playing...
  • Review: 'Big Eyes'

    Review: 'Big Eyes'
    For "Big Eyes," director Tim Burton cast four of the biggest, widest eyes in contemporary movies. Two of them belong to Amy Adams, who plays painter Margaret Keane, creator of countless canvases of huge-orbed waifs mysteriously popular for a time but...
  • Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes' feels too paint-by-numbers

    Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes' feels too paint-by-numbers
    Whether leaving his mark with the bizarre yet sweet sentimentality of "Edward Scissorhands" and "Beetlejuice," the brilliant Oscar-nominated stop-motion animation of "Frankenweenie" and "Corpse Bride," or the brashness of his "Batman" reboots, Tim...

     'Big Eyes' the latest in Tim Burton's gallery of pop-art portraits
    In the early 1990s, long before Tim Burton ever planned to make a movie about Margaret Keane, he traveled to Northern California to commission a portrait from the artist whose paintings of children with oversize, mournful eyes were a nearly inescapable...
  • When it comes to villainy, Waltz is always pitch perfect

    "The most cruel dictators are usually, in private, quite charming people," purrs Christoph Waltz in that gloriously precise, Oscar-winning Austrian accent. Not that he'd know. He's not met any, or played a dictator in a movie yet. But give him time. In...
  • 'SNL' slams North Korea, Sony

    Fear is the enemy of satire, a point all too well illustrated this weekend by “Saturday Night Live.” The NBC series started promisingly by having Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) slam North Korea and Sony for giving evil organizations a bad name over...
