The trailer for this looked amazing in 3D. Johnny Depp is the perfect Mad Hatter.

I really wanted to be excited about this movie because it's my favorite children's story - I own over 20 different copies of the book, for the different artists doing the artwork - but it's just not doing it for me. Maybe I'm just BurtonDepp'd out. Or maybe Burton's style isn't looking as great with this story as I thought it would. This should have been a slam-dunk with me, and I'm disturbed that it's not.

I hope your wrong about it. If I still did drugs I'd definitely be taking some acid before seeing it.

I'm sick of Depp and Burton, but I want to see it just to see what Burton does to the story. And because of Anne Hathaway and Mia Wasikowska.

My gf said the same same thing about Depp and Burton when I told her we had to go see it. I don't think I could ever get sick of either one and certainly not together.

I don't give two shit-squirts about Depp or Burton anymore. The last good movie they did was Ed Wood, and that was over 15 years ago. Can you believe it? Sure, Sleepy Hollow was entertaining, but good? Nah. Depp is a golden goose now, so anything with his name attached will make money, whether it's good or not.

After 9, I lost all faith in burton. Nice visuals, but story was absolute shit. I think Alice style wise is looking like shit as well.

9 was different stuation, Burton only produced it. He did not write or direct it.

I am not very excited about this, don't like the visual style... I would have MUCH preferred a Ralph Steadman drawn animated version....

This movie looks like it's gonna make me feel stoned when I watch it and I enjoy that.

I'm gonna try and see this today. According to the reviews I've read the majority of the film lives up to the potential of a Burton/Depp Alice in Wonderland but just doesn't end very well. I'll take it. I was pretty damn impressed with the 3D in the trailer.

Tim Burton (sort of) remaking a children's story with Jonny Depp in a top hat? NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE.

Tim Burton has been dead to me ever since Planet of the Apes.

Dude, really?! Ape-raham Lincoln! How could you not find that genius?! How is that not better than the ending from the origin--oh fuck it, yeah Burton's career died with that remake.
