Alice in Wonderland Week is Apon Us.

March 5 is a very important date. It is the release of the latest Tim Burton joint, Alice in Wonderland.Alice will be Burtons 3rd film for Disney and his 7th with good friend Johnny Depp who will play the Mad Hatter. In actuality Alice in Wonderland is a combination of two books in one(Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. This explains why Johnny Depp is all over the movie trailer. Although my love for the Burton/Depp combo runs deep it has proved flawed in the past. 2005s Charlie and the Chocolate factory left many reviewers questioning the similarities between Michael Jackson and Depps portrayal of the eccentric candy man, Willy Wonka.

Burtons Alice in Wonderland dives deeper into the rabbit hole where we not only not only meet the treasured characters through new Burton eyes but watch as Alice is tossed caught between a war between two queenly sisters played by Anne Hathaway and Mrs. Burton to be Helen Bonham Carter.

There is very little doubt in my mind that Burton will deliver an amazing interpretation of Alice in Wonderland. Burton is just the person needed to bring a time-honored classic into the new age. Burton is often accused of going over the top but with a story like this that seems quite impossible.

The Wolfman

The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins, is a legitimate horror film. In the days of over the top gore films like Saw and Hostil, It's nice to see a horror film with that reminds you of the horror films of old. The story is weak but the suspense and build up are perfect and you just cannot go wrong with Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. It is well worth the money and will leave you with chills. Out of 5 Cupcakes, I give it 3 and a half. See it.
