The little oddities that I actually missed on reading this little unusual surreal tale of girl following the white rabbit down the rabbit hole. A point to this article isn’t to talk of the book (Haven’t so that might be a problem) but directed towards the new film arriving in early 2010 directed by the extraordinaire, Tim “Kooky looking” Burton.
Before disappearing to parts unknown (North of France) I encountered the teaser posters for the new film itself from watching an episode of “Movie Buzz”. A little look over had brought a nice thought of anticipation comparable to “Tron Legacy” future release in 2011 (At the time it was Tron 2). Being a fan that enjoys the visuals of any Tim “Kooky looking” Burton film (Gothic style all the way!) with how they look onscreen with clear ominous beauty always on screen in anything he does. I was thrilled, excited and ecstatic (And who cares if they all mean the same thing!) about what the trailer might be like…..two weeks in France brought a revelation of its release on the late evening I arrived back *Smiles*.
The trailer is creepy, weird and downright awesome! From the first thirty seconds had me hooked without question (I’d drop without question if Ninja Techno Kittens took over the world or Catgirls for that matter…Catgirls…..cool). Johnny Depp looks insane as the “Mad Hatter” in the completely and utterly awesome way of course. Alice in Wonderland is always one of those “It’s surreal on paper, so in film it needs the same touch sort of things” and Tim Burton fills that square (with an extra side) perfectly.
Remember that symbolism can be anything and in this film it’s how Alice wears her hair. The symbol of her maturity of Independence’s, hair tied back at the beginning of the film and then by the end it’s freely untied from how the film ends with her leaving on a boat with the camera panning out at a weird angle! The dress changes from being more feminine in a light shade of blue (As seen in the trailer) to something that has a darker shade of blue (Gothic style blue) along with being completely different in design (Gothic style as seen in the many images present about the internet of course).
To complete a puzzle for any film you must see the pieces from multiple angles without blinking (Posters, screen-shots, trailers and of course seeing them film the boat scene).

Thought of the day: August 4th:
Damn! One of those days where the only thing I keep thinking about is stuff….stuff like “What next?” or “Should it be like this?” or “Is this actual thought?”. The technicality is that the last three is technically thought along with everything. Like me typing this sentences for you to read. A boring day to think with something now formed to write, not as an idea but as a complete book….a sort of horror, questioning and implied elements in a city in sleep covered by snow.
