Tim Burton Strikes Again! New Movie Masterpiece Or Epic Flop?

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" - Alice from Alice in Wonderland (1951 film)

As a child, one of my all time favorite movies was Alice In Wonderland. Oh the joy of watching people eating magic mushrooms that make you grow, catterpillar's that smoke colored tabacco that can spell out letters, and of course the infamous Cheshire Cat that almost leaves Alice without a head.

So what do those things have to do with Tim Burton? Well, the fabulous director (that butchered Willy Wonka, but made up for it in Sweeney Todd) is now in post production for his newest film, yup, you guessed it, Alice In Wonderland.

I am of course excited and skeptical all at the same time, but still a little more excited than anything. Some of the cast includes Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter. So far so good, I say we have a mad mushroom party to celebrate when it comes out, just a thought.

Anyways, I hope you guys are as nervous/excited as I am. The release date is March 5th, 2010. I will be waiting Tim Burton, and you better deliver or it's off with your head, you sinister old fuck.


  1. I am just as excited AND very scared....please please don't ruin my childhood, Tim Burton!!!! It'd be pretty fucked up to see Alice get raped by Tim Burton.

  2. I haven't really enjoyed the last couple of Tim Burton movies (including Big Fish). The problem with auteur directors is that sometimes they fall into their own signature style. I'll watch it and say, sure it looks like a Burton movie, but it serves no purpose to the story for doing so.

    I'm hoping for a good one too Chris!
