Poll Results: Best Tim Burton & Johnny Depp Collaboration

Last week’s poll results are in! The winner for the best Tim Burton & Johnny Depp collaboration was:

Edward Scissorhands

– Edward Scissorhands: 10 votes
– Sleepy Hollow: 3 votes
– Sweeney Todd: 3 votes
– Alice in Wonderland: 1 vote
– Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: 1 vote
– Ed Wood: 1 vote

No contest here. Judging from last week’s comments, it seemed like Edward Scissorhands would be the odds-on favorite, and sure enough it was victorious. I am ashamed to admit that I have never actually seen that movie, but all of these votes make it clear I need to do so soon. Good stuff guys, and it’s nice to see a handful of other films receive votes as well.

THIS WEEK’S POLL: What *two* June movie releases are you most looking forward to? I am making this a multiple choice poll because I have a pretty good idea of what will win this one.

Also, I know how much everyone enjoys a good poll, so I would like to take this time to recommend an exciting new tournament going on over at Journeys in Classic Film. Kristen, the site’s owner, is running the Best Leading Man tournament in which readers are to vote for their favorite actor from each decade, starting with the 1930s.

    Brave and Prometheus (although I wouldn’t have felt bad about voting for Rock of Ages because I’m a theater geek). Thanks for the shout out for the Tournament by the way!

  2. rochpikey says:

    The obvious first choice is Prometheus but for the second I am going to have to choose Seeking a Friend for the End of the World just because I’m interested in seeing an end of the world in 2012 movie that is not catastrophic and somewhat light-hearted.

      I am interested in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World as well. I’ll watch Steve Carell in anything, even if it means having to deal with Keira Knightley as well. Plus, as you said, the concept is pretty cool. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Can’t say I’m a fan of Tim Burton so the collaborations between the two are usually things I tend to avoid lol.

    As for the new poll, it’s easy: Prometheus and Snow White! I think Brave will be good but the more I see Disney’s poor marketing of it, the less I’m excited for it.

    • Eric says:

      I know I’m in the minority, but I’m not terribly excited about Brave. Not sure how I feel about Snow White either, actually. Could be really cool, but Kristen Stewart is always a red flag for me.

  4. Chris says:

    Edward Scissorhands is certainly among my favorite Burton films!

    A little surprised Ed Wood only got one vote, far better than “Alice” and “Charlie” in my humble opinion! Oh well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles ( :

    Glad I didn’t miss your last poll and this one. I voted for Sleepy Hollow 🙂

    As for your new poll, man there are sooo many good ones but I voted for BRAVE, Prometheus a very close second!

    • Eric says:

      Haha well I’m glad you didn’t miss these polls either! Prometheus and Brave look like the top choices so far — will be interesting to see any other candidates make a push to the top this week.

      • ruth says:

        It’ll be hard to top Prometheus I think, though I’m curious to see whether the Pixar movie will come out on top box-office wise.

    • Eric says:

      Yeah, I think a couple others predicted Ed Wood would finish second overall. I wonder if it’s a case of not everyone having seen it…?

      I’m with you on Prometheus. Cannot wait to see that one!

  6. Dan says:

    I was looking forward to Dark Shadows but the negative reviews have definitely put me off. My favourite Burton/Depp collaboration is definitely Ed Wood – what a great film. I also really liked the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory update. But Edward Scissorhands definitely stands out as their defining moment.

    • Eric says:

      I’m right there with you about Dark Shadows, Dan. I was somewhat curious to see it, but all of the negative reviews have me doubting it’s even worth a rental.

  7. Jaina says:

    Glad Edward Scissorhands won. Worthy film!

    As for this week’s poll, gone for the obvious (Prometheus) and SWATH. I am REALLY looking forward to Brave, but clearly the marketing bods for SWATH no what they’re doing because they’re pulling no punches as it gets closer to its release date.

    • Eric says:

      Prometheus is a must for me as well, but I think I’ll wait for reviews on the rest. I did see a trailer for SWATH just recently that looked promising, but I have a hard time getting over the Kristen Stewart factor. 😛
