Tim Burton Movies

Most of my written works are a little dark and disturbing at times, but they make me feel and see differently. Aside from books, I also find comfort with movies. Most of the time these movies are done by Tim Burton. Then of course there are an extra inspiration with Johnny Depp. 😉

Tim Burton’s style is quirky but understandable. There are just some points which couldn’t be made better than a dark atmosphere and amazing cast. He knows his style and he improves it through time. I hope to be able to create something which more people would relate to.

I also try to remember some of the films that I enjoyed with my family which were directed by Tim Burton. Memories that are also sources of my inspiration in writing. There is really something fascinating with the dark yet colorful storylines.

Midnight

“I want to see a rainbow,” Abie said.

“Alright, tomorrow,” Mom answered while she was in bed.

“No! I want to see it today,” the young girl insisted.

“Don’t do this darling. Mommy can’t walk you there today. Tomorrow instead.”

“Why? You never keep your promise,” Abie ran out the door.

“Tomorrow.”

The lines went flat that night. It was the yesterday and today at midnight.

Abie woke up, smiled, and walked out the room.

“It’s beautiful!”

Dad came rushing out with red swollen eyes.

“Wh…What are you doing here?” clearing his throat in between.

“Mommy kept her promise. I saw the rainbow, Dad.”

Little Moves

Annie dances across the room, pointing one foot every after three steps. With her pastel blue dress, she steps on burning charcoals everywhere. Then she hears a whisper above, “Honey, dinner’s ready.”

She opens her eyes. She’s back to her white covered bed, only moving her eyes to answer “Yes”
