The movie feels like Tim Burton handed in one product, and then Disney took it and tore it to pieces, finding ways to jam more marketability into it.

I JUST came back from watching this film with my 9 year-old. We both enjoyed it! Johnny Depp just owns everything he's in, and he does the same here. 3D is amazing. It's a cool flick.

For the rest of the comments that will be posted regarding this article, please see the three or four previously greenlit Tim Burton Sucks threads that have appeared over the last several days.

Thank you.

Fark is rapidly on its way to becoming a parody of itself.

If you weren't intent on skewering mAnn Coulter, you could have gone with Nicole Kidman.

Outrageously pretty (in the right light). Utterly empty.

I have yet to see even an OK review of this movie. Tim Burton must have really farked this up bad. It could be Jennifer's Body bad

What the hell has happened to Ann Coulter lately?
I'd say for the last, oh, six months, she's been outside the headlines, hasn't been the subject of a single fark thread, and just hasn't mattered one bit in the whaargarbl-ing that has played such a large role in the recent past.
I'd almost say that Palin's rise has been Ann's demise.

Excoriating libtards is a national prerogative now, not just the domain of Coulter. I guess that means Coulter won, or something.

Too bad "Alice" sucks, it looked interesting, at least visually, from the ads.

Gah! There's a Coulter banner ad on the right side now!

I'm kind of getting bored of Johnny Depp.

It's kind of like seeing a Dali for the first time and saying: "Wow! That's brilliant!", but then its just the same images over and over again and the early work isn't that inspiring. Then you see a Kandinsky and say: "fark...I wanna see more of that".

/Nerd, much?

"Too bad "Alice" sucks, it looked interesting, at least visually, from the ads."

I wouldn't say it sucks, it's just very surreal. Whether you like that kind of thing is what you should consider before going. If you don't, you won't like it at all. I enjoyed the movie, but "Pirates of the Caribbean" it isnt....
I was however, very impressed with Mia Wasikowska's performance as Alice, neither over nor under acted. With all the scenery chewing that was going on, her performance helped keep the film grounded....somewhat.

Haven't seen the movie, love the headline/quote.
 
2010-03-07 05:24:52 AM
I expected that the 'Alice is 19 now' part was just a Disney move to say "look, not the same film. New copyright, please." And that was what it felt like. The few details that changed from the original were minor, only the climax of the story was really any different.

My sister was in town, so we went to see it. We both stared at the 'down the rabbit hole' sequence with memories of the old animated movie.* It had flaws, it is a dark Burton movie that Disney wanted filled with kid-friendly. I would have liked a lot more of 'Alice is grown up now, and Wonderland is different' than 'Alice is grown up, but these same scenes were in the original.'* But, as a retelling of the same story it was good. Could have been so much better, though.

*contradicts, I know. I like the nods to the original, I didn't care for the wholesale copying.

BooBoo23: I saw it last night and thought it was a beautiful film to look at, but completely unimpressed otherwise. I expected much better.

I didn't see Alice but I'm not sure why you'd expect more either. I don't mean any offense, it is just that burton's movies have been a whole lot of style (fairly one note style at that) without much substance since "Sleepy Hallow" which came out 11 years ago. The guy hasn't made a good movie in over a decade and has made two terrible remakes in "Apes" and "Wonka".

The guy who did "Ed Wood", "Edward Scissor Hands", and "Batman" left the building a long time ago.

As someone who saw it in mini 'imax 3D' I was wholly unimpressed with the 3D aspect of the movie and believe it would have been a better experience in 2D. Much of the fast motion and/or extreme foreground 3D appeared out of alignment and blurry. That said, the content of film was a solid 'C' rating and neither one I'd want to see again, nor pay to see outside of a cheap matinee - or rental. The performances was all acceptable, there were a few laughs to be had and the imagery was quite nice, but the story and it's execution was uninspired.

/loved the 3d in Avatar
//would see any movie with Anne Hathaway in it

If Burton had 'made it his own', then there would be people complaining that he hadn't been more faithful to Carrol's vision.

Despite all these negative reviews, the more i read, the more excited i am. Most of the reviews i've read, including this one, seems to be disturb at how dark it is. But one, it's a Burton movie, it always has a dark but family feel to it. And two, it was a story conceived on an acid trip (well if it wasn't, it certainly feels like it was).

The only other director i would have liked to see create this movie would be David Lynch, but even then, i think Burton is the best director for an imaginative movie like this.
 
2010-03-07 07:16:45 AM
Saw it last night. Loved it. i found the use of effects to be novel (rather than merely BIG and 'splody) and added to the setting and story. The Burtonisms (which i admit i love) didn't distract or detract.

The White Queen is up there with the girl in Legend in the dance scene for me.

Might should have sat a few rows further back.

Matinee audiences suck.

What you dismiss as scenery chewing i would call: playing the characters appropriately to the story and setting. Alice was meant to be human and sane. Everyone is kookie... for a reason.

This is how you use elipses... inside a sentence.

This is how your use them at the end....

I saw this movie last night. It's not the "ohmigod, that is fan-farking-tastic and it totally blew my mind!", but it was an enjoyable movie. The 3D was good, too. And of course, Johnny Depp was awesome in it.
 
2010-03-07 08:52:03 AM
I saw it on 2D first on purpose. I wanted to see the color palate properly first. I was actually of the opinion that they should have let Depp go a little bigger with his Hatter,He seemed a little too restrained.

I'm ( as I stated in an earlier thread) firmly in the Roger Ebert 3-star camp. But I found all of my problems with the movie were script based, not Burton based. Linda Wolverton is in no danger of being someone whose work I'll be seeking out in the future

But I really actually liked the brightly lit scenes in England and found myself wishing to see Burton's take on a bright coming of age tale in Victorian england or even the rest of Alice's earthbound story.

I'm going to see it again in 3D but not imax.

Disney already made this movie. It was called Return to OZ.

It must be tough being Coulter these days. She was the most prominent and vocal conservative female, and then Palin came along, someone much more attractive and charismatic. I don't agree with a thing Palin says, but I can't deny that she's got sex appeal.

You're both right; she doesn't actually eat. Instad, she runs on a synthetic protein fuel derived from the blood of babies.
