Sleepy Hollow was the last time Burton made a movie that I didn't find outright offensive. "Doctor Who impersonation and was chock full of comedy decapitations; it was great!" is about right.

OMG thanking Abbbottt for that clip. That's one of my favorite trex trax and I have NEVER seen that particular Bolan look. O_O

Yeah, no kidding! Pee-Wee was Burton hitting his apex right out of the gate.

I wish I could find a clip of Christopher Walken going "RAAR!" like a scaaaary monster. That's the thing I remember most from Sleepy Hollow.

DJP I AM SO GOING TO FLAG POST YOU FOR REMINDING ME ABOUT THE FUDDERWACKEN GOD DAMN YOU TO HELL

Depp has some really funny beats in that trailer, but the 70's joeks are definitely, definitely played out.

Apes was kind of worth it for the art direction. I'll never see Big Fish because the Spaulding Gray thing freaks me out.

Big Fish is gorgeous. I love it.

I had no idea about the Spalding Gray connection until just now.

(which was mostly just two hours of Tim Burton urinating on Lewis Carroll's corpse).

Yeah, the "Fudderwacken" scene just ratchets it up to defecation for the finale.

Got to say this looks ok!

I got a sort of Wes Anderson vibe from bits of it.

If Big Fish hadn't finished Spaulding the fudderwacken would have.

(sorry couldn't resist, hate myself)

grr Burton's Alice in Wonderland just makes me ANGRY

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 16 March 2012 17:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

I got over the Depp/Bonham-Carter/Burton triangle a long time ago (I think the last thing I saw was Willy Wonka), but this looks positively awesome. Will see!

Johnny Fever, Friday, 16 March 2012 17:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

I hear Burton was going to remake Charlie's Angels with dead corpse ladies that shoot tiger claws from their anuses when they laugh but then he decided instead to save the world by Destroying Alice in Wonderland and leaving the charming spot it once occupied in the collective mind with a substance fouler than any the universe has ever knowed

that trailer sucked, all the jokes had a real HAHAHA RAP LYRICS BUT LIKE ALL STODGY AND PROPER ENGLISH AND SHIT THANKS FOR THE EMAIL FORWARD DAD vibe to 'em

thanks to how I have my web browser sized, I am going to be haunted by the phrase "DAD vibe" for the rest of the day

just DAD vibin to DJP's dad over here nbd

this will probably be cheesy and awful but I'm inclined to give it a chance since the source material really wasn't that great (unlike Burton's other depp abominations, charlie and the chocolate factory and alice in wonderland) to begin with.

as for mirror, mirror: I think taht will be good. I like Tarsem. It's certainly more promising than the other Snow White movie which would have me believe that Kristin Stewart is prettier than Charlize Theron.

Man...if Mirror, Mirror looks good to you, it's probably long past time for your cataract checkup.

when did you guys start hating fun so much

get bent, hating fun since 1976

they actually did the character from the past being bemused by television joke

I have a 5 1/2 year old so it looks good in that context (ie: movie I can take him to and not want to cut my head off)

what is this, some encino man shit? unfrozen caveman lawyer? but with vampires?

the kids of boris midney high (get bent), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

i dunno, maybe it'll be good and just has a lousy trailer. wouldn't be the first time. but like i said, the "dude from the past cannot comprehend our modern doodads" humor is plaaaaaaayed and seemed really stale to me.

the kids of boris midney high (get bent), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

at least the good thing about it being set in the '70s is there won't be any iphone joeks.

the kids of boris midney high (get bent), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

i agree with all the criticisms here but i still think j dog looks kinda hilarious

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

I saw and enjoyed Ultraviolet in the theaters, I have no real basis to object to anything resembling this movie

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

which will be worse, this or The Lone Ranger?

Number None, Friday, 16 March 2012 18:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

You guys took his version of AIW way too seriously, if has destroyed the original story for you.

stan this sick bunt (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 16 March 2012 18:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

On the one hand, I agree with you
On the other hand, did you not actually watch the fudderwacken

I don't think I take it *too seriously*

But honestly how do you take a children's story that has been successfully adapted many times including a version that featured Carol goddamn Channing, and then turn into a stultifying heroin goth navelgaze

you shut up too :)

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 16 March 2012 19:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's an answer, clearly

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 16 March 2012 19:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Carol goddamn Channing was great in that adaptation btw

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Friday, 16 March 2012 19:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

def one of the better adaptations

the sir edmund hillary of sitting through pauly shore films (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 16 March 2012 19:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

this looks fun! stupid, silly, but potentially entertaining, and i do love johnny depp, so sign me up. i'm kind of a burton apologist, though. i find even his worst films sort of "diverting" or at least generically "watchable". i'm a sucker for elaborate production design, gothic atmosphere, eye candy in general, and at the very least, he knows how to keep things moving colorfully along.

I would be more inclined to watch this if it starred Depp and Carol Channing.

Marilyn Hagerty: the terroir of tiny town (Abbbottt), Friday, 16 March 2012 19:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

the comic timing on this looks really sharp. thats most of the battle there. "dude from the past cannot comprehend our modern doodads" humor still works for me tbh. i'm much cooler with stale 70s pop culture jokes than i am with the fucking fudderwaken. and pfeiffer, hbc and green all look like they're havin some fun. peace
