26/100 Alice in Wonderland

Recently Tim Burton directed in his typical fashion Alice in Wonderlan. I thought that this was a great idea, because Alic in Wonderland is suppose to be pretty dark and grim.

Even the Disney portrayal of Alice in Wonderlan was pretty dark if you look at it closely and you know Disney tries to make everything kid friendly. I have yet to ever read the book, but everytime I see a version in film form I see slight variations that i know are in the book.

Rim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is no different, even introducing the Jabberwocky, which appears to be in the actual book. If there was only a way to verify that? (Thank you wikipedia, proven) Anyway, where was I going? Tim's version is pretty much to be expected, so if you like Tim Burton films like Edward Scissorhands, Sleep Hollow, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, wait a minute all those have Johnny Depp in them as does this movie portraying the Mad Hatter awesomely, I think.

This version of Alice in Wonderland is pretty incredible, and if your a bif gan of Alice in Wonderland kind of like me, then you should go check out Syfy's version entitled Alice.
