Creepy yep yep...but kinda cool too! The original had a lot of cultural subtext in it that made it just as creepy...maybe more! *Who said that...back in your cage you...don't wake up until I tell you to!*

Yes, but fun creepy. Tim Burton rocks!And as Ukeffect pointed out the real Alice in Wonderland was not the toned down Disney cartoon. I can't wait to see it!

It can't be weirder than this version (wait til she goes down the rabbit hole)

I'm looking forward to Alice, but will wait for reviews before I see it. Tim Burton's films always have exceptional art direction but the writing is hit or miss. Seeing as this is a Disney film, it will probably be slap-sticky and not as avant garde as it looks.

yes...I realized after I wrote the last post that this is a Disney film also...we will have to wait and see. So far it looks like it is going to be good but you know how trailors are-often misleading.
btw: did you see Wonderland on SyFy?

But then again.. I just remembered Chronicles of Narnia is under Disney too and I was happy with that. Are they not making the rest of the books into movies? So we'll see - I'll cross my fingers about Alice. I would love to love it! :-)

I recorded Alice on "SeeFee" (lol) but I haven't watched it yet.

I only saw bits and pieces of it. I kept falling asleep. It had nothing to do with the entertainment value of the show...I was just suuupppperrr tired. :D You'll have to let me know how it was after you watch it. Maybe I will get lucky and they will rerun it. As for the Chronicles of Narnia...I'm still ticked that they didn't start off with the Magician's Nephew (the first book in the series) But then again I almost never like the movies as well as the books.

Bah.

If I want to see Johnny Depp playing an eccentric, I'll go rent "Edward Scissorhands".

Or "Pirates of the Carribean"

Or "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"

Or "Sweeney Todd"

Or "Sleepy Hollow"

Or "Ed Wood"

Or "Cry Baby"

Or "Benny and Joon"

Or... You know what? Pretty much any Johnny Depp movie. :p

Have you ever read Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass? Lewis Carroll was on CRACK. Definitely the most appropriate director for this adaptation.

it was never proved that he was on crack. but defiantly some drug references in the book

Did they even have "Crack" back then? I thought that was more of an 80's drug... :D

I took it as a figure of speech. :-) I don't think she meant he was literally on crack. Although, psilocybin ("shrooms") and opiates are a definite possibility.

yes I definitely meant that figuratively. lol

well... I don't know about the drugs he may or may not have been on but you have to admit the guy had a great imagination. :)
