I'll believe it when I see it.

I totally agree, I have not seen a Tim Burton film yet that I have not liked, I love his style of movie-making and he just keeps getting better and better, like how cool was 'Sleepy Hollow'?????, the man is a magician

I just saw the film. Turns out it does suck. Well, it's pretty weak, anyway.

Argh, this sucks...I hope after this Tim Burton goes back to what he's best at-artistry, not big budgets. I'm still going to see it, after all-it's Burton, my fave director.

OT: OK-who else here thought "Batman Returns" was the coolest movie ever?

Burton always seems to come up short in the story department. If only he had better writers (or the ability to see good writing from so-so writing).

He obviously creates very visually striking films, filled with originality. But his films tend to leave you wishing that they were just a little bit better.

Yeah, the writing on Apes is quite lacking. I'd be interested to know if Burton did any rewrites himself. If he didn't, then my question is, what demon got into his head and told him to shoot this script?
