Tim Burton's 18th feature film, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, is in cinemas now, so what better time to venture back through the legendary filmmaker's back catalogue and separate the wheat from the chaff?

Burton has had one of the most storied and fascinating careers of any A-list director over the last three decades, venturing from the unassuming family comedy through to the billion-dollar tentpole...and every weird fancy in-between.
