Just watched Evilution on one of the naff horror channels. Cheap and cheerfull zombie flick, but a damn sight more entertaining than Soloman Kane, and Ricky Warwick from the Almighty turns up as a rocker turned zombie.

Alice in Wonderland was decent. Depp pretty much carried the film for me, although Alice was pretty good too after the first hour or so. Bonham-carter can fuck off as the queen of hearts, she basically ripped off the queen from Blackadder but did it really poorly. Other than that there aren't really characters, just lots of famous people talking.

I'm getting slightly bored of the -Tim Burton-Johnny Depp-Helena Bonham-Carter- combo now :( GO back to the days of Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice! They were masterpieces!

He's not going to say no to Helena, she's probably litteraly got him by the balls as we speak. Depp is actually decent, but yeah I'm pretty bored of it too.

I watched Alice in Wonderland today, I thought it was a very pretty film (In a way it was a shame it was in 3D as the backgrounds were very pretty).

I thought it was a good film all in, it took a bit of time to actually get into wonderland (stupid character development :P ).

My only complaint was that it was not as 'Burton' as I'd hoped. Edit actually another complaint was that there was not enough Alan Rickman.

i was sitting here thinking how stupid do americans have to be for Batman to label his ladder 'bat-ladder'. im so glad Batman is english now.

then i was pissing myself when the shark appeared. lol shark repellent spray (although why would you need whale repellent spray?). the sad thing is, the Adam West era Batman was the most true to the comics. just shows you what a lack of immagination people had.

Watching the Matrix on ITV2 atm. Just had one of my favourite scenes from any film ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sZAv71ENnY

Seen the film a bazillion times though. Think I'll migrate to BBC2 and watch Louis Theroux.

I agree it does look silly how every Tim Burton film now seems to have them two in it. Though I can't complain cos I still think Depp is brilliant, I can't see many actors being able to play Burtons kooky characters that well. Bonham-carter I'm not too fussed about.

I'm going to see Alice in Wonderland at the IMAX in 3D next week woo!

Raised in England.
And er... Portugal.

Besides, Wales isn't a proper country anyway.
