In t-minus 10 hours, I will be sitting in an uncomfortable (most likely) movie theater seat waiting for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (in 3D none the less)…to begin. I’ve heard, from two sources that I trust, that the movie is downright awful. Could it be? I think yes. I already know I’m going to hate it. I know, I know… “keep an open mind”, but let’s be serious. Has Mr. Burton not sold out in the past few years? I mean, I thought “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” was alright. Meaning, I thought the colors were pretty. But it wasn’t the best.
I honestly think that hearing the name Tim Burton makes people brainwashed zombies and makes them think that what they’re watching is an instant classic. Which isn’t always the case. Over the past year, I’ve become very picky with my movie choices…and I admit, I’m probably the worst person to go the movies with because of that.
If I hate this film, I swear to God…if people applaud at the end, I will not hesitate to start a “conversation” with them asking them to describe in detail why they liked the film so much. I bet you anything they will say “Uhm…because it was cool.”
They will not get away with this…
