Default tim burton's alice in wonderland

The new alice in wonderland looks awesome! Tim burton is a creative genius so Iím sure itíll rule, but I really like the new way their doing the art for it. the old Disney stuff was good, but the new burton art looks very traditional and old school. I found a site with a bunch of t-shirts for the new movie, check out the t-shirts:
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
I really like the Cheshire cat ones personally.

I have to agree this looks like a fantastic film, can't wait to go and see it.
I wonder if I will be able to buy Tweedle Dumb and tweedle Dee T shirts. My best mate needs the DUMB one, obviously.. lol

I love Tim Burton aswell. Alice in Wonderland goes in premiere here this friday, at the biggest 3D cinema in Europe, 5 minutes from my home. Unfortunately I can't go because I have to go to a meeting for a new band I'm in. But next week I will go for sure.

A new band?? What happened to that fabulous pianist-led group you were in (forgot what it was called - it was a guy's first name)?

A friend of mine saw one of the premiers of the new Alice in wonderland a week or two ago. He loved it, and said that it definitely lives up to the hype. I'll be seeing it myself in a week or two.

Haha, don't worry, Scott still exists, and we are practicing hard every week.
My 'new band' is project band for a conference where we will be playing a full weekend for a few times a day. It's a worshipband. I auditioned for it, and I made it. Not because of my skills they said, but because of my enthousiasm and my focus. So, now it's three saturdays rehearsing, learning 35 songs or so, and then playing one weekend and after that it's done.

Yep, I reckon you'd need plenty of enthusiasm and focus to learn 35 songs in three weeks. KIS, as always, provides a measured and accurate perspective on the situation :)

Good that Scott's still around.

I know it sounds crazy, but to me it's all about the learning experience, trying to get better and better as a musician and developing myself to be the best drummer I can be.

Thanks Poll, you can see I put a lot of thought into that response.
Frank, good to hear Scott is still going strong. I really rate that band. Something pleasingly different.

Well, we've just returned from watching Alice in Wonderland in 3D and it is stunning :-). The atmosphere is great and the characters are awsome. The story is not very creative, but it's all about how it's told, and that's magnificent. Great movie!

Just call it Dances With Doormice. It's a liberal plot to turn America communist.

Johnny Depp has become a caricature of himself. He's pigeon-holed himself into playing these flamboyant crazy people roles.

Ha - never mind Frankie in Wonderland ... Frankie goes to Hollywood :)

Dances with Doormice lol

Dios, but he plays those wacky characters so very well ... and for a handsome pay cheque. I still remember him in Chocolat (like half of the female population) so I know he can play a leading man if he wishes. Guess he's going through a wacky phase, like The Stones did with Satanic Majesties ...

I don't know...

The visual style is honestly the biggest turn-off for me. Character's faces seem disconnected from their heads or something. I honestly was annoyed by the time that the trailer finished so I don't think that I would be able to give the movie a chance. It may be a very good movie, but if the visuals get under my skin this much, I don't think I could go see it.

Very mixed feeling about this film, great visual effects but the kids got a bit bored with the story. Was hard to work out what johnny depp was saying at times.
The best part of the film was watching matt lucus from little britian who plays Tweedle DUMB!.. and Tweedle dee!! Reminded me of someone!! Lol.

I have yet to see it myself, but man am I trying. The visuals and overall art look outstanding, I gotta see in it 3D, especially after seeing avatar in just 2D.

Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter; perfect role for him. I personally think Tim Burton did well on the look of The Mad Hatter as well. Ah, I gotta go see this movie lol might just go tonight.

I found the film very atmosphereic, the production and cast are clearly very apt and professional in their acting, i found the film to have a tinge of the oldy worldy fill about it, not your usuall Hollywood, take, they have kept true, to how the book was orginally concieved. Johnny Deep, is a great English actor, his accent, being very rounded and articulate of English east end, all in all, not a bad film. v ..

Nice! I also play in a conference worship band as you may know (the Dutch IFES band), and trust me: that is an awesome experience. What conference will you be playing at?
If you need any tips on this, PM me. Most important tip is (assuming the conference is from a friday through a sunday): don't stay up till 2:30AM on friday drinking beer and socializing. It's gonna be very tempting, but chances are you're gonna be practising at 8AM. Been there, done that... my playing was still fine but it does not work wonders for your focus and your mood... lol!
