Sigh…what happened, Tim Burton?
26 November 2017 | by matthewssilverhammerSee all my reviews

He used to be a guy I looked forward to seeing his films. And certainly, this isn't his worst film, but with its bland YA tone and little stylish distinction, he seems to be finding new ways to be mediocre. There's a couple cool design moments (puppet boy), Green's performances is a nice Gothic-Mary-Poppins turn, and the Coney Island battle is kinda fun…otherwise, this is (yet another) not-very-good disappointment from the one-time king of quirky darkness.
