alice-mainHoly crap!

Seriously… Tim Burton is such a weirdo. Now I know that the person who wrote Alice in Wonderland must’ve been on drugs anyway, but seriously, this guy really is making the movie a frick of a lot weirder than it needs to be.

I am expecting to really dislike this movie considering I hated Burton’s re-make of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I was told by people—though I’m not sure how true this is—that Burton’s remake was more close to what went on in the actual book… however true that may be, I still believe that he puts a dark turn on movie’s that need not be there.

Like Coraline, I feel like this is another one children should stay away from… I mean, just look at how Johnny Depp’s character as the Mad-hatter looks!alice

It’s absolutely horrifying! Leave the kids at home please, if you don’t want them sleeping in your bed for the next couple weeks!

I think if they gave this a little darkness to it, it would have been OK but this… this is just scary. Tell me what you think of this new make-over.

Then again, maybe I’m just a Disney classic whore ^^)

coralineposterSo I went to see Coraline on Friday with a friend and I will say that it was pretty good. I mean, at first when he said he wanted to go see it, I looked at the commercials and was skeptical, especially with the whole “from creepy-ass Tim Burton” name written on it…I thought I was about to waste $10.

It wasn’t a waste, but before you waste some money, take heed of my warning:

I do not care if this movie PG, LEAVE THE KIDS AT HOME.

There were indeed some disturbing images in this movie and even some “soft-core” nudity that bothered me. The movie is indeed a dark one, and I even jumped at least 3 times…and this is coming from the same girl that was 14 years old and watched SAW alone in the house with all the lights off…yeah.

It was definately a good movie though; Tim Burton fans will be pleased and also anyone who likes dark humor will find this one enjoyable.

I give Coraline 4.5 Starfruit: 45-starfruit
