Dear Tim Burton,
I've been looking forward the new edition of 'Alice in Wonderland' coming out March 4 that you directed. But-I must say that I'm concerned. I've seen the trailer, and I don't like the excess amount of computer generated imagery.
I think there was WAY too much of that in your version of 'Willy Wonka'. It looked fake, and that made me feel less attached to it. When I saw the original 'Willy Wonka'(angels sing).
I felt that maybe...by some stretch of the imagination...it could really happen. It was incredible. And- the candy factory shots during the opening credits-GENIUS!-but-you made yours SO unrealistic that it felt beyond out of reach. The newer trailers make me feel a little better, but not much. I dunno if I can trust you with this after what you did to Gene Wilder's masterpiece! I was also freaked out by Johnny Depp as Wonka.
It's was wrong!
The other actors were sucky as well. They were shadows of the originals!
The script was bad in 'Willy Wonka' too...You couldn't afford to hire a REAL writer?! There's no excuse for that one!
