Oh it isnt!? thank god. okay, I read the wikipedia article about it. I get it now, it's a stupid idea, but whatever, doesn't matter to me as long as they keep that shit out of the movie. I'll forgive them if they play Robert Smith during the credits.

I thought this might be the case. Movie music isn't just used for dramatic reinforcement of visual action anymore. For many hollywood films a soundtrack has become an (arguably ineffective) marketting tool. The soundtrack is usually designed to target a specific and narrow audience demographic as insurance. In other words if they don't see the movie at least they'll buy the soundtrack. This is particularly appealing to scrupulous marketting execs as the target audience is actually paying to have the movie advertised to them out of their own pocket. The people most likely to spend money on the movie and any products relating to it are the most likely to be targetted. In this instance it's the teensters with highly disposable incomes. It's just coincidence that these people happen to have terrible taste in music.

Oh man, I am so relieved at this. I was picturing beautiful Tim Burton images being backed up by Metro Station, and was just a little bit turned off by the whole thing.
Danny Elfman is truly amazing, and I'm so glad he's back for another round of awesomeness with this movie

I started watching the 1951 animated version last night, and I really want to see what Tim Burton has done with the characters. (I hadn't seen it before)

Alice is the most disappointing thing I've seen all year.
The song during the credits is the Avril Lavigne one.  It's annoying.

Also, what's the problem with Grace Potter?  Bitch is fantastic and I will kick the ass of anyone who tries to tell me otherwise.

Oh, I'm so glad someone else shares my views.

It's not that I hated it, but I felt underwhelmed. It had so much potential to be amazing. The visual aspect of the film was pretty decent, and I loved the bit where Alice falls down the rabbit hole. However, that didn't excuse the whole "fan fiction" vibe I got from it. It also did not excuse Johnny Depp's dance at the end.

That's basically my reaction.  It was just fucking embarrassing when he started dancing.  Also, the White Queen deserved so much more screen time and character building than she got. 
The only two people in the entire movie who at no point disappointed me were Helena Bonham Carter (which surprised me as I expected her to just phone it in) and Anne Hathaway (who did the best she could with a crap part).

Helena was definitely the best of the cast, and one of the few characters that had any semblance to her original counterpart. (With the exception of the Cheshire Cat).

But yeah, that dance...it was just embarrassing to watch.

Personally, I feel if they had cut Johnny Depp's screen time, and gave some more to Anne Hathaway, it wouldn't have been as bad.

I was a bit dissapointed too...it wasn't awful but I was expecting it to be amazing.

But I read the book at the weekend and started reading Through The Looking Glass - they are so good

They fucked the characters up so bad.

I didn't mind it as a thing, though. Kind of liked it.

I saw it with my little brother today, although we didn't have enough money to see it in 3D. My brother didn't like it because the jabberwocky scared him, but I really liked it. I liked the... bandersnatch? And I thought the Tweedles were cute. I wasn't really disappointed until the Hatter did his dance at the end.
And the part with the headsman and the cat... I loved that part.
