review: tim burton's alice in wonderland

So, just finished watching Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and it's about what I expected: rather flimsy story with a feel-good ending. Um. Not quite write-by-number, but pretty close, which makes me sad. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't already seen Alice, which is long enough to tell its story a bit more thoroughly, and which plays with various tropes and audience expectations a bit. And which hangs together as a world a whole lot better.

I dunno. My reaction to the movie is pretty much "Meh", whereas my reaction to Alice was to watch it again immediately (with the director's commentary on), and then a third time the next day. Make of that what you will.

Other people who have seen it/them/whatever, what did you think? My sister's favorite part was the bandersnatch, and I much agree, although even that was rather...obvious, I suppose. And convenient. Actually, that sums up the whole movie pretty well: convenience for the plot and a lack of negative consequences. And prettiness. It was pretty, I will give it that.
Different medium than what you work in, perhaps? I find certain authors I can still read with great delight, but most of them time I have the same problem you do.
