  1. I only liked this movie because of its visuals. (I was in my Alice Madness Returns and loved the dark Wonderland stuff)

  2. Eh, Critic; you’re not gonna like this one… Not only are they making a sequel to the Alice in Wonderland remake called Through the Looking Glass (Yeah, we’re finally getting the sequel by the wrong guy we want it from!), but they’re also making a sequel to Beetlejuice in that same timeframe! I swear to Palutena and Poseidon that’s not a joke!

  3. The movie wasn’t saying “Alice was Alice”… no duh. The point of that scene was that Alice had forgotten the events from the book and she was now remembering them. It was never supposed to be a question whether she was the real Alice, it was a question of whether or not she would remember it.

    Also… (sorry, I still like this movie) but you say that one might be expecting this to be a remake of the original and might be confused by the title… but the poster also shows her as an adult… and the trailers clearly show that the plot is different. How would you get confused by that? Also, the title “Alice in Wonderland” isn’t incorrect… she is still Alice. Just because she is grown up it doesn’t make her any less Alice.

    This movie definitely has a bunch of flaws, but about half of the flaws in this video don’t even make sense… they aren’t even correct flaws, it is simply you misinterpreting what the plot is and what is going on.

  4. Was Tamara’s Malice a reference to American McGee’s Alice? Am I that old? Do I only ask rhetorical questions?

  5. aaalright I was honestly a bit afraid to watch this review of yours. Because while I can work with you talking shit about things I like, there are things I wasn’t sure about. I am always one saying, you should always see that this videos are comedy first, but if I am one thing, it’s a fangirl of a few things. One is…. well you Doug. The other major thing is Johnny Depp and Tim Burton. I just can’t work with people talking bad about them, because I enjoy them so much. I know it’s silly, it’s just me. But I am haplpy with the video as it is really :)
    I want to visit Burtonland rrrreeeeaaaallllyyyy badly, and it was quite fun actually. Some things I can maybe relucantly agree on, some I won’t but that’s not the point. It was fun, and I thank you for that. :)

  6. Doug, since you’ve mentioned Big Eyes at the end, could you do an episode on it as well? I am really curious about your and Rob’s opinions on this movie. Or, maybe, you could do a Sibling Rivalry episode, or an editorial, or a special. Thank you!

  7. Wow. Burton really went to town in his takeover of Wackyland…

  8. This may not be the starring role, but when talking about a black character being a main character, you forgot Byron Williams from Mar’s Attacks. His role is a very solid role, helping other characters survive the alien invasion, and he is given a pretty good back story. The boxer that just didn’t make it to the top of his league, now down on his luck and has to work at a Las Vegas casino to help support his (ex? It has been some time since I last saw this movie) wife and kids. His character mattered so much to the movie that he was given a back story and an ending when he (SPOILERS, but then again the movie is almost 20 years old so if you haven’t seen it what are you waiting for? And dear lord, almost 20 years old?!?! I’m old as dirt) reunites with his family. So Tim Burton has had a black character as one of the main characters, but when thinking about this I must agree that Byron Williams is the ONLY main black character that comes to mind. Damn Burton, what’s up with that?

    • Quote from wikipedia Batman 1989 article.
      “Tim Burton chose Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent because he wanted to include the villain Two-Face in a future film using the concept of an African-American Two-Face for the black and white concept, but Tommy Lee Jones was later cast in the role for Batman Forever, which disappointed Williams.”
