Oh God. I LOVED the book. In fact, it's probably my favorite book. So I was really excited when there was a movie by Tim Burton. Of course, Tim has to say something like "Alice is a whiny little brat, derp derp..." Anyways, he starts off INSULTING the very thing he is making.
Onto the actual movie, TERRIBLE. WTF is up with that dance, the Fugawagon? What? It sounds like you're saying "Fuck a wagon". Who comes up this shit? The next part I hated was the Jabberwock[y]. It's just Jabberwock, BTW. And it shouldn't speak. I also hated the part when the queen is painting the roses with Alice. The cards in the book tried to cover it up so they wouldn't be killed, so wouldn't the queen kill Alice? God...and the dance. I couldn't even watch it. Terrible. Burned my eyes out.
I DID like the costumes though. That's I'll give it. If you can't tell yet, I'm very opinionated.
Haven't seen it yet, I am a big Alice fan and I always hoped to see Tim Burton (my favorite director)do this movie, sadly it's not the movie I would have wanted, but that doesn't mean it's not going to be cool, come on... Burton and Depp... how can you lose.... (oh well, lets try and forget Sleepy Hollow...)
I saw it earlier and i think I could write a whole paper on everything I didn't like about it. In a nutshell, I didn't like it. And that's only the tip of the iceberg. I wish I could say the special effects made up for the lack of character development, but even that had a lot of issues. They really had to boost the gamma of the film to make it look blown out in many places just so the special effects could blend in better. I give the film a 5 out of 10. If not for the special effects, it'd get a 3.
I enjoyed it, it wasn't like OMGAMAZING but it was definitely worth the money spent. The main issues I had: Too much eye stabbing (although that may be symbolic) Too much said so I couldn't understand/hear it The Mad Hatter's dancing at the end - it felt like a bad children's movie
Well I thought it would be a little too much, but compared to the outofthisworldness of the enviroments he fit right in lol xD. However some bits were a bit hard to hear (it was some scottish lol xD). Ah youll see ^^
