Oh pffftttt. I get why y'all don't like it, but I find variations on the theme of Alice to be interesting. BF has actually become a baby Alice scholar, and he made the observation that Burton's Alice (the character, I mean) is probably the closest in spirit to Lewis Carroll's original. I tend to agree with him. People have done enough weird sh*t with the character in the past 150 years (including icky stuff) that Burton's slightly creepy, mad/genius interpretation of the whole thing does NOT offend me.
