Raise your hand if you forgot this movie was even coming out because I know I didn’t. I feel like Tim Burton films just seem to come out of nowhere. Maybe because he’s a secretive person, or maybe because he hasn’t had a hit film in a few years! In either case, I was not blown away by the Alice in Wonderland, but I could understand why some people might be. Great CGI, corky humor, and there’s Johnny Depp – what more do you really need? Alice Through the Looking Glass seems to deliver the same movie, but is just rewrapped and resold as something different.
- Is Johnny Depp in trouble? (yep)
- Is there a dragon? (yep)
- Eccentric Villain? (yep)
- Same cast in crew that’s pretty much in every Tim Burton movie? (yep)
Despite this, I have high hope because two directors proved me wrong this year. They were Ridley Scott and George Miller. I thought they were done and down for the count, but they bitch-slapped me with two fantastic movies. So, this gives me hope that any director can make a come back with the EXCEPTION of M.Night. He could never make a come back. Check out the trailer and let me know your opinion.

P.S. That last part was pretty funny though.
