down the rabbit hole

I have to admit that I’m slightly indifferent about seeing the new Alice in Wonderland movie, as much as I love Tim Burton and visually stunning movies. I’m not sure what it is, I just haven’t jumped on the ecstatic bandwagon that so many people are on right now. Maybe because I couldn’t stand Sweeney Todd? (Update: Miss Crowland totally reminded me of why I’m skeptical: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) But I do love the story, and most of the very first film adaptation (a silent film of course) of the story from 1903 was restored after being severely damaged. How amazing is it? I have to say that watching it is making me a bit more excited to see the new movie.
