I had no idea that there is going to be a live-action Alice in Wonderland coming out next year...The trailer repels me. And is Johnny Depp trying to corner the market on foppish weirdos?

Seriously, I don't know what Johnny Depp is thinking when he does stuff like that. He's really pushed it past the point of caricature now, which makes me sad. He's always been my favorite living actor, but lately, it's starting to be a "was" instead of an "is." And that depresses me.

The movie itself looks like more of Burton's not good material. Which also makes me sad, because when I like his work, I really like it. But when I don't, I really don't. :| I'm conflicted.

He's been doing too many caricatures lately, hasn't he? Or at least, that's what it seems to me since his biggest roles have all been strange.

Burtonesque is a good description of my impression of the movie from the trailer. I've learned not to totally judge a movie by its trailer, but it just does not look good right now.

He really has. I can't stand to watch "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," because I think it's the one (the first?) time that he as the actor showed no genuine feeling or respect for the character he was portraying. He was mocking his strangeness, and it showed. I hated that, particularly coming from him after his previous strange roles have been tempered with some kind of sensitivity.

That's not good news about the trailer...
