Ever since it was announced that Tim Burton was going to do "his" version of Alice, I've been a bit apprehensive. No lie, I do enjoy Tim Burton films. I think Sweeny Todd was massively under-rated and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory over-rated. Like any director, he has his hits and misses, but I have found that lately he is dangerously close to his films being self-parody of the magical and enchanting films his career started with.
....and I LOVE Alice in Wonderland, and would hate to see it butchered. But today I've been excited, as I've so far ignored most of the info coming out about the film. Yes, we all knew Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter would be in it, but there's a few others I am now really excited about. Like, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen sounds perfect. Alan Rickman as the Catapillar? Sounds fantastic to me. But wait a minute, o what's this I see? Stephen-fucking-Fry as the Cheshire Cat? *Tap dancing excitement* I love this man. AND WAIT....Hold it...wait for it.....o yes....CRISPIN GLOVER as the Knave of Hearts.
So that's kinda made my morning a little more special, than the previously posted knit cupcakes.
