If I were Tim Burton, here's how I would end Alice: Have a climax similar to the Disney version, with her being chased, and just as it seems she's about to escape, the camera pulls back out of her eyes to reveal that she's in a mental hospital and the entire story has been a drug-induced hallucinat...

Yes, REALLY, Cheap-Joke Boy: A unique synergizing of one of Disney's two obsessivve marketing goals at the time, A) the Bambi/Fox & Hound 2-style repromotion of old dead forgotten back-catalog titles with brand-spankin'-new vidquels, to force-feed fresh new character identification into kids who'd l...

Also, for those currently with Melendez-special withdrawal, all 18 episodes of the comic-strip "Charlie Brown & Snoopy" Saturday-morning series are currently available for download on iTunes Store, even though it's never gone to disk yet... :)

Second, L&S was done by Chris Sanders (Uh, not to quibble IMDb points, but wasn't L&S done by Chris Sanders AND Dean DeBlois?...) Don't worry. Nobody's slapping Chris. Chris Sanders is amazing... and there's a lot of love for him among the people at Disney. Nobody would pull something as unprofessi...

I don't care one iota for their current live-action TV films, for the childish 'Princess Party' or 'Sing-Along' DVDs, or the foreign films they distribute. Uh, have you SEEN any of the "foreign films they distribute" before lumping them into the same sentence with the mass-market material? (Or did ...

If I get it for $13, will there be another version in the near future - have we heard any indication as such If there's no immediate plan of a new release then I'll get the $13 DVD. It was low-rent Gold when it came out, so let's just assume that's the ballgame for the moment. (Even "Sword/Stone" g...

There's a documentary on the restoration work, which explains why the new scenes "aren't in perfect condition", and from what they went through, it's a wonder they were able to survive at all... Yes, a little of "Portobello Road" goes a long way--and the whole uncut number goes a lot longer --but th...

The Gold collection was the restored Anniversary version (in fact, that and "Sword/Stone" were the very first two "modern" Gold collections that started putting actual extras on their ex-Limited Editions)--
It's never been on DVD any other way, and doesn't seem to be in any hurry for Blu, so... :)

On Burton...a surprise that Verbinski might not come back, but only perhaps, and is Tim that much of a wild choice? Frankly, I'd take all this with a huge dose of salt and pepper as the story says...this really is "fantasy" casting and, I would wager, fantasy reporting. Hearing "Tim Burton" in a ru...

Pinkava's version, IIRC, was going to be more Paris-"stylized", and have Chef Skinner as the main villain-- That's... nice , but it definitely wasn't the movie we got. The final movie practically owed its Oscar and mainstream hysteria to Peter O'Toole. Like "Bolt", when I hear Lasseter's grabbed the...
