    So in 2009 the White House threw a lavish Halloween party inspried but Burton's terrible Alice in Wonderland film. Burton, Chewbacca, and Depp made an appearance. Now that it's come out, bloggers are going nuts. Drudge has seven headlines all dedicated to this story.

    How much taxpayer money did the party cost? Did either Johnny Depp or Tim Burton charge fees of any kind?

    Wrong theme, you chinless asshole.

    I'm just offended that they threw a party for one of the worst cinematic abortions I've ever seen in my life. And yes, I'm being dead serious. I find that movie physically repulsive in every way.

    Dude, it's not Wonderland, it's Underland. You didn't like that twist?

    Notsureifserious... That's from the original book, I believe. But that's exactly what bothered me so much - it couldn't have been more derivative. The one original thing in the entire movie was the shoehorned Lord of the Rings battle at the end (who knew the Mad Hatter kicked some ass?). Other than that it was essentially a live action remake of the Disney Cartoon. Ooooh... Plus, I'm tired of Tim Burton and his "creative visual style." His stuff just looks like self regurgitation now. I'm half expecting Edward Scissorhands to walk out in every one of his shit piles (I liked Sweeney Todd a lot, but Edward Scissorhands wouldn't have looked out of place in that movie AT ALL).

    I thought the original Disney movie was a lot more interesting. Alice in Wonderland was a road trip movie about a chick who enters this crazy world, meets crazy people, and just sort of chills with the craziness. Burton's Alice in Wonderland was "CHICK OF DESTINY" bullshit that was like a sequel where she does the exactly same thing as the first time she went down the rabbit hole. Either do something new with the original elements or don't try to make her Dorothy Fucking Gale.

    I don't remember Wonderland being Underland in the original source. I'll take your word for it, but I still felt it was stupid.

    Holy shit. I was wrong. I always thought it was in the book. I'm with you, inventing it just for this movie is stupid as all hell.

    Well it's Burton. He's cooler than you and smarter than Carroll. The Mad Hatter needed a love interest and tragic backstory.

    Meh, Drudge routinely does this with stories. Since it is a news aggregator, if there are multiple story threads about one specific events, it'll just post multiples.

    Whatevs dog.

    I'd love to hear what the lib-defenders have to say about the "Whats Happenin?" themed Halloween party during the Clinton Admin.

    Everyone knows that Hilary was the best Shirley Hemphill. Ever.

    Meh, "Through the Looking Glass" is more like it. What is it with Black people and salt btw? The oldest daughter is dressed as the Morton Salt girl..I have seen refrences to salt in African American folklore....

    Burton said he hated previous Alice in Wonderland movies/cartoons.

    Apparently it was too random and chaotic for him. Which is why this one was much more linear and typical in plot flow.

    I googled "black people salt" and all I got was someone saying that plantation owners fed their slaves a bunch of salt to keep them from getting dehydrated and a couple news stories about a misprinted recipe calling for "salt and freshly ground black people".

    The picture bothers the shit outta me. And not just FLOTUS's stupid smile, but the way they got Barack's head to float in mid-air like that.

    It is pretty interesting how they got Sasha's lips to match her fathers though. :action-sm

    I seem to recall it was given to newlyweds as a symbol of prosperity..since in biblical times salt was like gold or something because a slave could buy his way out with enough salt. That and it was vital to life and preserving food.

    That's silly.. salt without enough water to balance it would kill you by actually pulling the water out of your cells and shutting down your kidneys.

    And Tim Burton really needs to get over his obsession with pointing out how Victorian England was upper crusty. We know.

    It took for that for you to say Fuck Tim Burton?
