not exactly a wonder

Did anyone actually expect Tim Burton’s new version of Alice in Wonderland to be good?  It seems to me like the kind of thing Wal-Mart shoppers think is elegantly “weird.”  Burton has been washed up for years, Johnny Depp is a wang, and CGI is fucking boring, especially when compared to the lushly psychotic animation in the 1950s Disney version (which I actually prefer to Carroll’s original boooks, awesome as they are).  Anyway, Dana Stevens has whipped her pen out and slashed Burton in her typically persuasive, compact way.  Git git it.
