Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland Looks As Unnecessary As It Does Neat

Alice in Wonderland trailer, you guys:

Well, that looks neat, I guess. (You say you did all of that with a what now? A computahuh?) Also: unnecessary. Did we need Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Not really. But we got it anyway. Is it just me, or does it seem like Tim Burton is somehow exempt from the ordinary rules of disdain and public outrage over Hollywood’s cash-grabbing War on Movies That Don’t Need to Be Remade? I suppose Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands will buy you a lifetime of goodwill, AS THEY SHOULD. Old Godz. Walking among us.

As a sidenote, though: Johnny Depp should probably be careful. You can only ramp it up so much. His face/head is going to get stuck like that one day.
