Alice in Wonderland

First off, let me just say that I am not a fan of Alice in Wonderland.  I’ve tried to read the book a number of times, at different ages, and it just never…clicked with me.  I never found a film adaptation that I really liked either.  The only thing I like about Alice is the single quote about believing six impossible things before breakfast!  (That, I adore!)

So when I first heard Tim Burton was making a film, I thought: “Well, I’ll see it.  Probably on DVD.  Because it’s Tim Burton.”  And then, the pictures started to arrive – and oh good golly molly, they have giant mushrooms!  In a garden with giraffe shrubbery!


I don’t know what it is about giant mushrooms, but I absolutely love the image.  It’s so fairyland, so otherworldly.  Everything is so super-saturated and lush – at this point I don’t care that it’s Alice.  I’m prepared to love it anyway.


The Cheshire cat is spooky! He’s got a zipper mouth of teeth!
