Here's a book that I remember in broad strokes, despite having read it a few times in a few versions. Which... I mean when you think about it that's probably exactly why I remember it in broad strokes instead of big detail. So a big thing for me during this movie is going to be not remarking on "yeah, that was in the book!" even though well you all know me, that's sort of just a thing I do.
Apparently more crap weather is headed our way. The weather people say February averages 45 cm a year of snow and in the first 10 days we managed 60. This is a bad thing. They're literally bringing dump trucks along to deal with the white stuff. Bright side is, lots more reasons for people to be indoors staying warm and watching movies. Like me!
I'm actually pretty stoked for this one, the original is really off-the-wall and it sort of screams "animate me!" so I'm glad they did the obvious thing and went for it. Like Pinocchio, of course, this one is a children's book that isn't fairy tale based. Unlike Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland could never pass for a fairy tale, what with its morality being based around decapitations, pig babies, enlarge person and reduce person and tea with insane people. I'm expecting some great things, folks.
Walt Disney Presets I see a protagonsit
And we have another one of these terrible songs they keep putting on titles.
