You know, I was genuinely excited for his movie. I mean, with his crazy aesthetic blended with the story's equally crazy world, I figured what could go wrong? Then I heard it was going to be a pseudo-sequel to Disney's Alice in Wonderland; and I was fine with that, albeit a bit cautious. What I wasn't prepared for was Alice in Narnia. Now, I'm speaking for myself when I say that the growth/shrinking scenes do not redeem the film in anyway. They were nice to watch, and all, but I stopped caring about the movie halfway through it. I guess what I'm saying is I wanted to see Tim Burton adapt the Lewis Carroll story to film; not do a sequel to a Disney movie.

And any film that wastes Christopher "Saruman of Many Colours" Lee loses respect points from me.

(I'm sorry if this goes a way off topic.)
