Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk?

Bex and I went to see the new Alice in Wonderland tonight. It was dark, and haunting, and warped, and absolutely beautiful. Johnny Depp was brilliant as the Hatter (helps when you're already half mad.) The Cheshire Cat pretty much stole the show. Visually, it was pure candy. Of course, being as it was a Tim Burton film, I expected nothing less. The humor was razor sharp, and quite grown up. Honestly, this isn't a kid's movie. The jokes are likely to go over their heads, and there are plenty of scenes and moments that would scare young'uns.

In the gamer vernacular, replay value was quite high. I know when we watch it again, we'll catch a wealth of things we missed the first time through. And we definitely plan on watching it again. In fact, I'm certain we'll buy it when it comes out on DVD.

A definite must-see.
