    Well just got back from the local flea pit...
    I was really looking forward to Tim Burton's new take on that old fav
    Alice in Wonderland.

    This was the first 'new' 3d move I've seen, yes still not seen Avatar.
    Impressed with the general look, design and oooo 3Dness.

    But the movie just seemed to plod along...dull plot and absolutely no soul.
    Apart from a couple of cute creature gags mostly lacking in humour also.

    The whole Mad Hatter look is totally over done although elements of his multiple personality were well put across by Mr Depp.

    So once again Tim Burton produces a disappointment...pity I really.:(

    I watched it last night and absolutely loved it, it was very much about the look and feel of the film.

    All the characters (or near enough all?) delivered top notch acting and it just put a big smile on my face
    Exactly what I expected :)

    I enjoyed it and loved the characters...lovely stuff.
    It's just they they seemed unused and there to look pretty.
    Like I said design and style where top notch it's just that there was something lacking from the storytelling.

    A spark maybe?

    Maybe :p but I just loved watching it so for once didn't care about how the story was (oops)

    I've seen the trailor. It looks weird and a bit creepy. Alice seems to be strangely away, as if she never spoke. Maybe it is just the impression that the trailor gives.
    But it is Tim Burton. I find that what he creates is often creepy.

    Biggest waste of £8 ever.

    Gotta agree with Typo - 3d visuals were ok - but the storyline really did plod along, very slowly.

    Very Slowly.

    Saw it last night, in a packed cinema, far too many people fell asleep.

    Was it wrong that the best bit was the 30 sec trailer for Sky Sports 3D???

    It seems that this film was not conceived for 3D, it was shot in 2D.
  11. Might get a chance to watch this at some point when I get back to the UK :p Or it might even be on the flight back :p

    I just watched this tonight, bit of a let down.

    Yeah I agree the plot was boring.

    Tim Burtons worst since planet of the apes.

    I'm a fan of Tim Burton's stuff, but I agree with DeanZappy, bit disappointing and strange
  16. I finally saw it last Friday night, travelled up to Glasgow especially for it with my girlfriend. Really disappointed.

    I thought the 3D was poor and a bit distracting at points. I had heard that Tim Burton had only done the film because of the 3D possibilities, but I read today that it was converted from 2D recording rather than filming straight to 3D, so that's probably why it was mince.

    The plot was shoddy, and sadly not saved by the decent performances.

    There were some entertaining parts, but that god awful "dance" at the end with the appaling music was not one.
