Nerd Lunch Episode 65: The Trial of Tim Burton
This week, we are joined by Mr Matt Ringler of the Schlock Treatment podcast (when he decides to show up). For our topic, we return to do one of our trial episodes which we did previously in episode 15. We put Michael Bay on trial in that episode, this time, we are prosecuting Mr Tim Burton.
I play the star witness as well as the bailiff, CT is the judge, Matt is the prosecutor and Jeeg is the defender. We talk about Burton’s body of work, we talk about what works, what doesn’t. Essentially we are deciding if Burton should be put away for good for crimes against the movie-going people. Are Batman and Ed Wood enough to keep him out of jail? Are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Planet of the Apes going to drag him down like an anchor around the neck? Tune in to find out.
