Yeah, it going to be interesting to see how Nolan tries to wrap up his Batman Trilogy. I'm really wondering how you can have a definitive ending to Batman thought. It would be a downer if they killed him, and it would be odd to see him retire from the role as Batman after only a few years. I hope Nolan knows what he's doing. I'm a big fan of Burton as well. RETURNS (disregarding the fact it is a sequel) and SCISSORHANDS are good films. The only one of his films I didn't like was (as you said) Planet of the Apes. From what I understand there was a lot of behind the scenes problems with that one. A lot of people hate his CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTOR and ALICE IN WONDERLAND films, but I thought they were just meh. And I agree about BIG FISH being really good, and I might even agree it is his masterpiece. And I also agree that REVENGE was a great conclusion to the series (I personally even rank it second overall after EMPIRE). It was very powerful in its themes, story, and characters. I personally thought Jackson provided a good strong powerful conclusion in RETURN OF THE KING. Off the top of my head I can't think of any major issue I personally had with it. And if we're talking series conclusions I thought that the latest Harry Potter movie was also quite good. I'm not the biggest fan of that franchise but I thought it similarly to those had good emotional resonance.
