It’s hard to believe just how insanely popular Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” has been! Well, I shouldn’t really go that far…I mean it is Tim Burton. But that’s beside the point. I waited in line for almost 2 hours in the pouring rain yesterday to see this damn film. Not to mention a wannabe 16 year old drag queen cut me in line. I wasn’t entirely disappointed, but I wasn’t really in love with it.
The only reason I would consider going to see it again or watch it again is for the tea party scene. The Hare was hysterical! He reminded me of me after a long night with no sleep and OTC med’s! Oh, he was a viable hoot!
Now, we all now Johnny Depp is a “character” actor, however this may have been one of his worst character’s EVAR. I guess he was supposed to be Scottish? But he was only Scottish half the time. Then he was Jack Sparrow, then he was Johnny Depp, then he was Willy Wonka. I’m beginning to wonder if Mr.Depp really knows his own identity these days.
Exquisitely beautiful and large nerd hearts for Alan Rickman and Christopher Lee. They were the next best parts from the movie besides the Hare (and remember, they only did voices!).
Anyways, the movie was “ehhh”. Hopefully Burton’s next film will be far better.
Oh, and one more thing….
[SPOILER ALERT?] what the fuck was the deal with Mad Hatter’s “Futterwacken” dance at the end? It was like a weird cross between a touchdown jig and breakin’. So i renamed it the “Fuckin-Wanker” dance.
