Johnny Depp is my hero so I tend to watch most of his films. I also like Tim Burton films so Alice in Wonderland caught my attention. The Boy booked us premier seats at The Vue a couple of nights ago so we went to see it. The jury's still out. I liked bits and am still wondering about other bits. I couldn't even drool over Johnny as he looked decidedly weird. Unusually for me I can't even comment on how close it stuck to the books. I had a big, old fashioned copy of Alice in Wonderland when I was a child. You know the type, it had fabric covered bindings and the pages were made from good quality, glossy, china clay paper. I opened it often but the pictures in it scared me so I never got round to reading it. I guess the film had a bit of the scary aspect in it but it was a bit less dark and frightening than I was expecting. I suppose I'm an adult now and don't scare so easily :o) Mind you, The Boy nearly scared me witless this morning when he burst into the bedroom to get ready for work as I was still in bed dozing.
