Alice In Wonderland


If I'm watching the trailers, correctly, for this latest movie version of Alice in Wonderland, I would have to say the people who made this flick had to have been dropping some major acid. I'm sure you've seen the previews at one time or another. They come on TV about every three seconds or so. That tells me it will either blow cat chunks or... or it will blow a deranged transvestite wearing a funny hat and freaky makeup. Kinda like that picture of Johnny Depp in the upper left corner.

Scary shit!

Still, with all that said, I will likely go see it this weekend or the next. I might have to smoke something for several hours before truckin' off to the theatre, you know... banana peels or something to be able to fully get into this flick, but I'd still like to see it. Eh, I've taken my chances with Tim Burton movies before and I have managed to enjoy a little over half of them, thus far.

Escapist movies are all the rage now, due to the recession and unemployment woes of a nation whose public is considered unworthy of consideration by an ultra-uptight, wealthy, idiotic conservative party called Republicans. Not that I'm pointing any fingers at anyone. Ahem.

I've never read the books, written by English author, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) but from what little I have read of those books, Alice's adventures seem to be rife with insane, menacing characters and mind blowing, psychedelic imagery. Not to mention quite a few drug references. For example, check out this synopsis of chapter five from Wikpedia.org:

Chapter 5- Advice from a Caterpillar -Alice comes upon a mushroom and sitting on it is a Caterpillar smoking a hookah. The Caterpillar questions Alice and she admits to her current identity crisis, compounded by her inability to remember a poem. Before crawling away, the caterpillar tells Alice that one side of the mushroom will make her taller and the other side will make her shorter. She breaks off two pieces from the mushroom. One side makes her shrink smaller than ever, while another causes her neck to grow high into the trees, where a pigeon mistakes her for a serpent. With some effort, Alice brings herself back to her usual height. She stumbles upon a small estate and uses the mushroom to reach a more appropriate height.

I'm no expert but that sounds suspiciously like someone was hittin' the ol' bong-eroo (or hookah) back in 1865.

Anyway, the movie might prove to be fun. Even funny, in a strange sort of way. In any event, I definitely want to see it, if only, for what looks to be a fantastic spectacle.

I think AIW looks like it will be a visually stunning experience. Depp is a good actor, so I'm betting it will be an interesting take on the story.

As for Depp's portrayal of the Mad Hatter..it might blow a deranged transvestite wearing a funny hat and freaky makeup..for one, if you squint your eyes a bit while looking at that promo shot, Depp to me, looks just like Elijah Wood. Now that's scary.

Kelly said...

Now I'm trying to imagine Elijah wearing that make up. Now he's that actor dude with the bulging frog eyes, ins't he. I'm always getting him mixed up the with dorky actor dude from the Spiderman movies. Can't think of his name at the moment because I'm sitting too close to the caterpillar.

I squinted OMFG he does only with a touch of the creepy next door neighbour who puts on a nazi uniform and masturbates in a mirror kind of creepy

I am counting a lot on the movie and will love to see a review from you.
anyways I saw it once as an animation film and felt this hookah scene to be quite hilarious but when you I read it now, I am loving it more :)

Dark Slander said...

It looks quite insane to me. I'm not big on the whole Alice in wonderlands stuff though, make sure you write how it is. You may change my mind.

Hi Kelly,
There has been a lot of rumours about good ol' Lewis dabbling in a bit of LSD and cocaine. However, there has been no conclusive evidence. Still, having read his trippy shit, it does make you wonder.
Johnny Depp and Tim Burton were over here in jolly ol' England recently. They were interviewed on the Jonathan Ross show (Jonathan Ross is a poor man's David Letterman). Anyway, Johnny and Tim seemed kinda' out of it on the show. So, lets see what the new movie is like.
Here's some boring trivia for you. I recall a show made in Vancouver titled: '21 Jump Street'. Who would of thought, way back then, that Johnny would end up becoming a major Hollywood star?
Take it easy man and watch out for hookah-smoking caterpillars:-)

Kelly said...

The Wolf: Hahahaha. I like your comment/description, dude. I can easily see that, in my mind, but would not want to see that in person.

Kelly said...

Pratik: Yes, I will be reviewing the movie. I wish my wife would go with me to see it but she has already said she won't because the previews make it looks stupid. My mind is more open to it. Yeah, the hookah scene sounds hilarious. Don't know if they'll have that in the movie, though.

DarkSlander: Like I said to Pratik, I'll review the movie here on PC after I see it.

Kelly said...

klahanie/Gary: Yeah, I've read those rumors, as well. Lots of speculation on that part of his life. Ha ha. So Jonathan Ross is a poor man's David Letterman, eh? Guess he has a low budget for his show. It wouldn't surprise me if Depp and Burton were out of it. They probably shared a hookah before coming on stage.

I knew Johnny Depp was in "21 Jump Street". Yes, he was really not too well known then. I didn't know the show was shot in Vancouver. I thought it was made here in the U.S.

I'll watch out for those hookah smokin' caterpillars. Thanks for the warning! And take care!

My apologies, Oh Great One, for missing the last 12 posts you decided to publish in 3 fucking days!!!

FINALLY got my layout done, ITS BADASS. Like there was any fucking doubt?

I have hated every Tim Burton movie SINCE Batman Returns! I mean really? How can you go from Batman, BeetleJuice, and PeeWee (You know you loved it) to these shitty knock offs?

Added your scary button to my awesome page, I thought we discussed making a 'nice' looking psychotic clown?

Kelly said...

Your apology is accepted. How did you know "Oh Great One" is my official title? Must have heard it on the news.

Glad to hear ya got your freakin' layout done. About damn time, damn it! Should have layed off the sauce like I told ya. I'll check it out as soon as the Oh Great One's work is done here.

Thanks for adding my psychotic clown button. I can't make a "nice" one or all the sensitive weaklings will come here, looking for cute little puppies and smiley faces.

Cupcake said...

That's right up your alley fucker!!! I think it's a FANTASTIC idea!!!

Cupcake: HAHAHA. Retching dog stories? I haven't written a retching dog story... yet. Cum. Check. Shit. Check. Retching. Double check. But no retching dog stories. Thank you, cupcake fucker, I will give your idea all the attention it deserves. And then some. Look... a smiley face :-) just for you! God bless.
