    And I like bad movies - like 'Plan 9', 'The Beast of Yucca Flats', 'Godzilla vs. Monster Zero' etc. I think this is the movie that began Tim Burton's slide from greatness into indulgence and failure.

    'Mars Attacks', hell yes. 'Sleepy Hollow', hell no.

      ...but I think you've got it up-side down.  "Mars Attacks' is fun enough, but "Sleepy Hollow" friggin rules.

        I thought it was indulgent tripe, honestly. A comedy that never actually managed to be funny. It's not my least favorite Tim Burton movie (that would be the "Planet of the Apes" remake), but it's a close second.

        I love "Sleepy Hollow," though. A pitch-perfect recreation of the Hammer Films horror aesthetic, with a good script and some excellent acting. It's not Burton's best ("Ed Wood"), but it's a damn fun movie.
