"The stories are like drugs for children, you know?" Burton said. "It's like, 'Whoa, man.' The imagery, they've never quite nailed making it compelling as a full story. So I think it's an interesting challenge to direct."
My favorite Alice movie is still that awesome one from the '80s with Carol Channing, Merv Griffin, Ringo Starr, Sherman Hemsley, Sammy Davis, Jr. and two tons of other people. I watched it so many times that the tape wore out.
Time to shell out for the DVDs.
