Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland"

Roll over Lewis Carroll, film director Tim Burton has hit you between the eyes with lavish computer graphics. Poor Alice has been the target for decades...from Disney [who is the releasing agent for Burton's film] to Bill Osco's pornographic version. I am looking foreword to this film for I think Alice in Wonderland would benefit well from computer graphics which I usually disdain. Elixirs and logic--we are all mad...as a hatter! The film is scheduled to be released in March 2010.

Two other films are worthy to watch: Jan Svankmajer's stop motion/live action Alice in Wonderland [1988] and "The Wednesday Play" Alice in Wonderland [1966]

Here are two clips...
