Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton's, Alice In Wonderland or the far more appropriate Alice and the Return to Wonderland, opened this weekend at the box office. Thus, bringing the sobriety level of the young generation to an all time low. Except, even a dose of stimulants couldn't save this film from inevitably plummeting down the proverbial hole to it's own splendid death.

The film held wonderful, breathtaking visuals ripped right out of the book. Wonderland is beautifully illustrated and is arguably one of Tim Burton's best interpretations of a world we have all imagined. However, the story fell flat, a few characters were overdone and potentially heart felt moments rendered empty.

Presumably, with a film titled Alice in Wonderland, one carries certain expectations out of such a classic. Unfortunately, the title is misleading and proves that Tim Burton just can't help himself from making a Tim Burton film.

If you are a fan of the book, I suggest you just read it again. You will have a much more enjoyable experience. If you have never read the book, but are still interested in investing a couple of hours of your time, beware of all the hype and set yourself really low expectations.

Regardless, it is still a great shot at remaking a classic, changing the story, and over directing some of the characters. Tim Burton, retire your persistent style and allow your own classics to live on, representing you for what a great director you truly were.
