In Which I Am Wonderwhelmed By Underland

A Lewis Carroll fan I've been for long,
Tim Burton, too, is someone I admire.
How could a combination go so wrong
Of these two? But that has seemed to transpire.
The look of this film lived up to the hype,
Though after Avatar, this 3-D seemed
Quite flat and lifeless, gimmicky, the type
Of gags I saw so long ago. There gleamed
Some diamonds in the dross, though: Johnny Depp
And Bonham-Carter managed to transcend
The dialog and story. I just kept
On thinking these resources would contend
Far better with the stories Carroll wrote
Than making this dull sequel. That's my vote.


  1. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. You just happen to THINK in sonnets, don't you?!

  2. Hey, are you going to see Clash of the Titans? I am surprisingly very excited to see - will most likely even shell out the dough to go to the theater to re-live that movie that scared me so much when we were little!!!

  3. Haha, Krissy, yes indeed I plan to see Clash of the Titans. Liam Frakking Neeson as Zeus? Oh HELL yes.

    But no Bubo the Owl, judging from the trailers, which makes me a Sad Panda. Even you liked Bubo ;)
