I wanted to like this more than I did. Tim Burton is a mad genius. He rarely disappoints me. The only time I haven't liked a Tim Burton film... well, I wasn't too fond of Corpse Bride. Instances like that have been rare. I loved his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (some of you, didn't, I get that). I thought that Alice in Wonderland was a perfect choice for him and so I was eagerly anticipating his take on it. What goes wrong? The flaccid script fails to deliver on the same level as the visuals. Burton has always had this problem and usually I'm willing to overlook it but here it just really felt empty. And, come to think of it, Burton failed miserably with that Planet of the Apes disaster... so, that's three disappointments in an otherwise stellar filmography.
