Best Steady Decline

Have you seen the trailer for Tim Burton's remake of Beetlejuice?

It looks okay until they tell Johnny Depp that it's 1973, then it starts being pretty awful.
Jeff and I were talking on Saturday about Tim Burton, trying to pin down when he turned the corner and started losing his freshness.  Was Mars Attacks his last great movie?

I really liked Corpse Bride. And I thought there was something special about Big Fish. But yeah, its funny how polar his movies are - either totally great or totally awful.

Collin-Yes, Big Fish. Good.
M-Sometimes I forget that Depp isn't Burton's wife, it's that other weirdo he's married to.
