The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, spend the last week of October discussing the other half of the distinctive style of Tim Burton – live-action films! From his first ‘”interesting” efforts with his short film made in the early ’80s to discussing his directorial debut with Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985), the duo discuss Burton’s uncanny ability to create incredible live-action films.
