Second Try: It was terrible and people who liked it should feel ashamed.


In other words...

I kind of got the feeling that Tim Burton's source for the whole thing was the Tom Petty video "Don't Come Around Here No More"

Burton's a hit or miss with me... maybe, when I feel generous, he gets one out of five films right... the rest seem to work too hard and then fail to make a point worth the effort. Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Big Fish... I would rewatch without hesitation. AiW was the last one I bothered to watch. If the newer ones come on satellite, I might check 'em out. Yeah, I'm old. He makes films for people younger than me. I'm happy that he's made four films I like. He might have been cool with Maleficent.

It was good but I wouldn't go around telling everyone to rush out and see it. There was a lot of room for improvement.

I think "Alice in Wonderland II" is more properly called "Through the Looking Glass", yes?

It was ok...the only part that really just annoyed me was the stupid dance bit at the end.

Wasn't that a plot point? How he wouldn't do that dance until the evil queen was gone?

Yes, whether or not he did the dance was a plot point. They hinted at how "good" the dance was several times over the movie.

BUT, if you're going to foreshadow this supposedly awesome dance, maybe the dance should actually be, I dunno... at least semi-decent? Maybe the music for the dance should sound like it was played on something other than a $20 MIDI keyboard, perhaps in a tone and style that more closely matches the music in the actual movie.

That short sequence just bugs me. I liked everything else about the movie, until the point where we got 90's video game music and a crappy CGI dance.

It was all right, except for the contrived feminist ending.

I cynically think the sequel will go the way of Grease 2: any substance will be steamrolled by the eagerness to please.

It's nice to see the other side of that argument for once, actually..

John Carter of Mars deserves another not this!!!!!!

You see! THIS.... this is why we can't have nice things!

I saw it in IMAX 3d where I promptly fell asleep 30 minutes in.
I then tried to give it a fair shake on a repeated viewing some months later.
Oh, how I envied my first trip through Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.
Please, Disney. Let it die.

Seeign all those promotional photos of Depp in clown makeup kinda killed my desire to see it.

BalugaJoe: When is District 10 coming out?


I will kill you.. srsly.. never say that again....

/shakes tiny fist of rage

jj325: I enjoyed it. Of course I've found that all Tim Burton movies can be enjoyed if you are elevated are the same.


FTFM

/There are other actors in Hollywood, Tim!

jeffdo1: Wellon Dowd: I'd rather they made a sequel to Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Comedy.

I would love to know what was going through Kristine De Bell's mind when she made that movie. Was she thinking about a career in porn and then disappointingly decided against it?

Such an amazing little babe she was.


I agree. I saw that version at a drive in in the early 80's. And the reason she left pron? Meatballs with Bill Murray.

there is only one alice in wonderland project yet to be done and it will easily be the best ever:
- it is a rock opera staring Surge from System of a Down and Buckethead
-it is all trippy and when you sit in your theater seat you are stuck with high power lsd
-Milla jovovich plays Alice
 
2012-12-11 11:20:04 PM
Okay, so the original Alice was actually the first Alice in Wonderland book. The "remake" was actually Through the Looking Glass, the sequel. Both of those had plenty of book source material.

There weren't any more books after that. So, this movie will probably suck.

/liked the movie, despite the usual Burton elements
//agreed that John Carter kicked ass...
