There's no doubt that Tim Burton is a brilliant film director, but which is best film yet? None of these films need any introductions, they're all brilliant. So if by some chance you've never heard of them or seen them then you should put them on your 'to watch list.'
1. Batman (1989)
"I've given a name to my pain, and it is Batman."
2. Batman Returns (1992)
"I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much yummier."
3. Beetlejuice (1988)
"Barb, honey... we're dead. I don't think we have very much to worry about anymore."
4. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
"You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it."
5. Big Fish (2003)
"Now I may not have much, but I have more determination then any man you're ever likely to meet."
6. Corpse Bride (2005)
"But first! A toast, to Emily. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride! Tell me my dear, can a heart still break once it's stopped beating? Hm?"

Honorable mentions: Mars Attacks!, Alice In Wonderland, Ed Wood and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.

I really like the short film Vincent (1982), closely followed by Ed Wood.
