Then You Should Say What You Mean...

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is a unique interpretation of the classic Lewis Carroll tale. I have been full of anticipation for the movie since it was announced, does it live up to the hype and will audiences appreciate this darker version?
In the film, Alice is now nineteen years old and accidentally returns to Underland, a place she visited thirteen years previously. She is told that she is the only one who can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon controlled by the Red Queen that terrorizes Underland's inhabitants.
Burton had stated that he wanted to make it feel more like a story than a series of events and that he does not see this as a sequel to previous films. I'm surprised because neither statement I would associate with the movie because it certainly feels like a sequel and the Jabberwocky wasn't exactly a core character. Anyway, this is still a decent movie, Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter were impressive, the CGI was awesome but my partner and I both expected so much more.
