No, no, nothing sinister here. This is simply me of indicating that I have a couple more film reviews that I want to share with you fine folks.
These are a couple that I’ve seen over the past couple of weeks, and (from what I understand), are still doing quite well at the box office (and with the critics).
Needless to say, I have more, and will be posting them as I get them up on the web. Oh yeah, and as I have done previously, I am putting up the first couple of paragraphs here, and then linking you up with my regularly-scheduled film review column (where you will find these and more).
Directed by: Tim Burton
After watching this interesting and stylistically innovative film from the pocketbook of Walt Disney Pictures and trippy visionary mind of director Tim Burton I became acutely aware of two very distinct things.
- Other than the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and Croquet with Pink flamingos (complete with the white Queen shooting “Off with their heads!”) I knew nothing about this story. And
- The structure of this story is (apparently) very similar to that of The Wizard of Oz. At least in that they both start in the real world (Alice in Victorian England, and Oz in turn-of-the-century Midwest), and then move into a dream-like world where many of the inhabitants resemble folks left behind in that world.

Every average Joe-schlub has a dream, and that is to somehow manage to score with some uber-hot babe. Most of us will never have that opportunity, simply because wicked hot women simply don’t look at ordinary guys (George Carlin once remarked that while he never did it with a “10” but one night he did it with five “2s”), so you can certainly understand the draw for this film amongst it’s target audience.
