"I have not come to play with fruit. I just want me magic flute!"
So sayeth the ever-rhyming Irish demon played by Warwick Davis in "Leprechaun in the Hood" (2000) to the lusty cross-dressing Miss Fontaine (Lobo Sebastian). A little later, these two engage in a passionate romp under the sheets during which Miss Fontaine's cries of pain will be mistaken for gasps of orgasmic delight by at least one bewildered passer-by as the Leprechaun claims another victim.
It's astonishingly tasteless, crass and almost (almost) admirably brazen ... which kind of sums up the "Leprechaun" series in its entirety. And that's a pretty impressive entirety — there are six of the damn things in that pot of cinematic gold, after all.

Over a couple years ago, an awesome box set with a collection of soundtracks and previously unreleased music spanning the 25-year collaboration between director Tim Burton and composer Danny Elfman from 1985's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure all the way to 2010's Alice in Wonderland.

In an interview with Vulture, Burton said that the project is still very much up in the air.
"Those were fun characters, but I'd have to see what the script was like and if it was worth doing - I can't just make it because it's one of the worst ten movies of the year," Burton joked.
"The first two films I did, Pee-wee's Big Adventure and Beetlejuice, made the ten-worst-movies-of-the-year lists. Then, years later, people said they were my best movies. What? So if those were my best, I'm in real trouble."

Tim Burton has always been, you know, a bit of an oddball. Which is why we love him. But in a new interview, Burton reveals that back during his college days, he and his friends had a truly unusual hobby: Searching for the frozen corpse of Walt Disney.
And the crazy part? He actually found it!
Okay, we're just screwing with you. But Burton it's true that back in the day, Burton did spend some time looking for Disney's body, a detail that is pretty funny considering Burton's latest film, "Frankenweenie," is a Disney movie about bringing the dead back to life.
"The story at Cal Arts was that Walt was cryogenically frozen and somewhere in the basement," Burton told Vulture. "We used to spend Friday nights looking for him. So that's the story."
So what does Burton think about "Frankenweenie's" Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature? After all these years, »

Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Frankenweenie" What's It About? Tim Burton's early short film about a boy and his dearly departed-then-resurrected dog gets remade as a black-and-white 3D stop-motion animated feature. See It Because: Tim Burton's output has been wearing thin with audiences for awhile now and as a result, "Frankenweenie" didn't get much of a theatrical reception. Which is a shame because it's really enjoyable and is much more reminiscent of good Burton ("Pee-wee's Big Adventure") than bad Burton ("Alice in Wonderland"). "Frankenweenie" is a cute and clever mix of animal hijinks, goofy kids and lots of homages to classic horror cinema. This is a great watch for any kid who has a soft spot for Halloween. Moviefone's Blu-ray Pick of the Week "Two-Lane Blacktop" (Criterion Collection) What's It About? James Taylor and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson star as street racers who get caught up »
