The fun thing is, it’s actually an expanded version of a short film. Personally, I like the way the short is presented.. No words, yet very compelling story..

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

O’l Tim hasn’t let us down so far. . .

Well, at least he hasn’t done it too terribly often. . .  wink

Though of course that’s a matter of opinion, really.

This film looks as though it has potential.  On the other hand, that’s the idea that all previews try to give.  Often to the point where the preview shows all of the best scenes, and gives a false impression of the movie’s actual plot and character.

Somebody’s always making a new version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass.  Why doesn’t somebody remake The Hunting of the Snark or some other one of Carroll’s stories?

Well this AIW version is actually like Burton’s “Sleepy Hallow” (which I didn’t think was that bad, I’ll put in mad ) It loosely follows the source material, but has a plot pretty much different from the books. It’s a tale of after Alice went to Wonderland. She’s now 17 or so and goes back to save the Wonderland inhabitants from the tyranny of the Red Queen (“Off with her head!”)

I’d go for “The Hunting of the Snark” though. I loved that. smile

Someone could make Hunting of the Snarf.  I know many a person who grew up in the ‘80s who would love to see that character blown away.

ETA: And just to stay on topic, I usually enjoy Tim Burton movies.  But there are some that I don’t.  This movie doesn’t seem all that great to me.  Meh.  Funky, weird, stop-motion animation (if I remember the trailer properly from when I saw it quite some time ago - I didn’t watch it from this thread) set up an apparently dark and weird world.  Double meh.

Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Yes, the Queen of Hearts was the one in the first book, who was always crying “Off with their heads!”  The Red Queen was in the second book, and helped to guide Alice.  She’s more famous for her line about needing to run as fast as you can just to remain in place.
