Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

How many of us remember the magical world of Alice in Wonderland? The characters were memorable. I mean who could forget about the Mad Hatter or the Cheshire Cat. And Tweedledum and Tweedledee (not actually a part of Alice in Wonderland, they were in the sequel Through the Looking-Glass) have become a part of our culture. Think about how many times have you called a friend Tweedledum?

As we got older then we started noticing the oddities of the book. Many people have come to believe that the story in one psychedelic trip. And if you read the book in that context you can certain see why people would get that notion.

Now Alice in Wonderland is being made into another movie. Disney Films has gotten director Tim Burton to bring a new twist to the story. It stars the actor with a thousand faces aka Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. Appropriate, don't your think? I love Depp's versatility.

Here's the trailer for the film. I'm not sure if I'm going to see it as I tend to go to the movies to watch action films. But Depp is in it so it's a possibility.
