Movie Buzz: Alice in Wonderland (2010)

The internets is growing crazy over Tim Burton’s new baby. Its main character Alice is played by a no-namer, but she is supported by a powerhouse ensemble including Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, and as expected in Tim Burton movies, Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. Click on some lovely photos below and see for yourself how this is shaping up to be a colorfully spectacular homage to the Lewis Carroll classic.

    Just an opinion: when it comes to Tim Burton, I’m always initially excited when he announces new projects. Hearing about a dark version of Willy Wonka or Alice in Wonderland conjures up all these interesting images in my head. But then, I realize there are some things I don’t like about Tim Burton’s style and that those elements are almost always included. I’m referring to the fact that no matter how dark they get, Tim Burton films are never really scary or disturbing, but cartoony and playful.

    Then again, my favorite Tim Burton films do implement that dark cartoon feel quite well. Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Nightmare Before Christmas were all BRILLIANT.

    Didn’t like Big Fish or Willy Wonka too much.

    Most surprising Tim Burton film: Planet of the Apes

    What’s your take?

    Exactly the most endearing quality about the more playful Tim Burton classics is that they are never really scary or disturbing. When you manage to pull that off in a genre such as horror/thriller, you manage to produce a work that testifies to how the artist doesn’t take himself so seriously. Whatever genre it belongs, a movie is meant to entertain, and unlikely combinations such as musical/horror or fantasy/thriller makes Tim Burton’s works really a surprising treat to look forward to.

    I go for Scissorhands and Nightmare being on the playful/cartoony group. And agree on your take on Willy Wonka and Planet of the Apes. I think Big Fish is alright if you’re not aware that Tim Burton made it. I haven’t seen all of his films but I would bet that those characters on Big Fish are the most normal characters ever seen on his films.

    I haven’t decided on my favorite film of his. I’ll have to watch Sleepy Hollow again to be sure.
