Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter

Tim is: A crazy-creative filmmaker who we probably wouldn't want to run into in a poorly lit alleyway. He's responsible for the awesomeness that is Edward Scissorhands, A Nightmare Before Christmas, Sweeney Todd, Big Fish, and approximately every great '90s movie that didn't feature exploding speedboats or Nicolas Cage. Helena is: An awesome character actress who specializes in portraying creeps and witches, (As Bellatrix LeStrange, she was both.) She has been in pretty much every Tim Burton movie that requires a creep and/or witch and/or dead chick, and she has rocked the part every time. What they teach us: Even death-eaters can find love in this strange world.
