Collection of eight films from director Tim Burton. In 'Batman'
(1989) the streets of Gotham City are no longer safe for criminals,
who are being picked off by a masked vigilante in a rubber suit -
dubbed 'Batman' by the press. Reporter Alexander Knox (Robert Wuhl)
teams with photographer Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger) in an attempt to
discover Batman's true identity - an investigation which leads them
to the door of mysterious millionaire Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton).
Meanwhile, crime boss Carl Grissom (Jack Palance)'s attempt to rid
himself of untrustworthy henchman Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson) does
not go according to plan, and after emerging physically - and
mentally - disfigured from a vat of chemicals, Napier reinvents
himself as the psychotic Joker... In 'Batman Returns' (1992) Oswald
Cobblepot (Danny DeVito), who was abandoned by his parents as a
baby 33 earlier, is bent on revenge and returns to Gotham City as
the Penguin. First he begins a warped campaign to become Mayor,
helped by millionaire businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken),
and then he undertakes a mission to murder every first born son in
Gotham - a plan which will avenge his own beginnings. Meanwhile, he
has two adversaries to contend with: Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer),
the embittered ex-secretary of Max Shreck, and, of course, the old
caped crusader himself - Batman. 'Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory' (2005), based on the novel by Roald Dahl, follows
eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) and Charlie Bucket
(Freddie Highmore), a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives
in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory. Most nights in the
Bucket home, dinner is a watered-down bowl of cabbage soup, which
young Charlie gladly shares with his mother (Helena Bonham Carter)
and father (Noah Taylor) and both pairs of grandparents. They all
live in a tiny, tumbledown, drafty old house but it is filled with
love. Every night, the last thing Charlie sees from his window is
the great factory, and he drifts off to sleep dreaming about what
might be inside. For nearly 15 years, no one has seen a single
worker going in or coming out of the factory, or caught a glimpse
of Willy Wonka himself, yet, mysteriously, great quantities of
chocolate are still being made and shipped to shops all over the
world. One day Willy Wonka makes a momentous announcement. He will
open his famous factory and reveal 'all of its secrets and magic'
to five lucky children who find golden tickets hidden inside five
randomly selected Wonka chocolate bars. When Charlie finds some
money on the snowy street and takes it to the nearest store for a
Wonka Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight he finds a golden
ticket. The family decides that Grandpa Joe (David Kelly) should be
the one to accompany Charlie on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Once inside, Charlie is dazzled by one amazing sight after another.
In 'Mars Attacks!' (1996) Martians arrive on planet Earth and
American President James Dale (Nicholson) is persuaded to extend
the hand of friendship. One of the President's advisers, Donald
Kessler (Pierce Brosnan), has been studying the aliens and is keen
to make peaceful contact. However, the Martians gleefully fry their
greeting party from Earth and launch an all-out attack on the
planet. In 'Beetlejuice' (1988) the Maitlands (Geena Davis and Alec
Baldwin) are a happy couple who, when killed in a car crash, return
as ghosts to their beloved home to wreak havoc on the ghastly
yuppie family who have moved in. Being novices at haunting, their
efforts go unnoticed by the house's new inhabitants except for goth
daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), who doesn't mind one bit. At their
wit's end, the ghostly couple call on a despicably disgusting demon
named 'Beetlejuice' (Keaton) for help. The animated 'Corpse Bride'
(2005), set in a 19th century European village, follows Victor
(voiced by Depp), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld
and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride (Bonham Carter), while his
real bride, Victoria (Emily Watson), waits bereft in the land of
the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot
more colourful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns
that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him
away from his one true love. Musical 'Sweeney Todd - the Demon
Barber of Fleet Street' (2007), based on a 'penny dreadful' tale
(which later became an urban myth) from the mid-19th century, tells
the tale of Benjamin Barker (Depp), a barber who returns to London
after spending years in exile for a crime he didn't commit. He soon
discovers from pie-maker Mrs Lovett (Bonham Carter) that, in his
absence, his wife has taken her own life and his daughter is now in
the care of the man who had him sent away - the dastardly Judge
Turpin (Alan Rickman). Seeking revenge and filled with a murderous
rage, Barker sets up a barber's shop above Mrs Lovett's premises.
Now calling himself Sweeney Todd, Barker kills off all his
customers with a razor to the throat and sends their cadavers to
the shop below to be used as a tasty new filling for Mrs Lovett's
meat pies. What was once the worst pie shop in London quickly
becomes one of the city's most popular eateries, but Barker won't
be satisfied until he can lure Judge Turpin into the barber's
chair... Finally, 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure' (1985) follows
man-child Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens) who goes on an adventure to
recover his new bicycle after it is stolen. Along the way he
encounters bikers, bums, convicts and a phantom trucker.
