Nearly Driven To Drink

Lately, I've been losing the will to live each time I remind myself that Rose C'est La Vie needs dusting down and a shiny new post put up. It's horrible and I've diagnosed the problem as a mixture of trying too hard and not trying very hard at all.

Just as I was thinking this, I found that awesome blogger Emily Evans Eerdmans was writing this:

I have been encouraged by a new friend to be more regular in my postings - even if they are short and half-baked.

See what happened here. You've got to read the comments.

I might be half baked but Tim Burton is a double cooked soufflé, n'est ce pas? These pictures have been released by Disney in advance of his version of Alice in Wonderland, coming to screens next March.

Alice played by 19 year old Australian actor Mia Wasikowska staring into a very weird future.

Encountering the White Rabbit in the most plaintiff of enchanted gardens.

Shape-shifting Johnny Depp collaborates once more with Burton achieving a Mad Hatter who appears to be radioactively candy-coloured. Is that a Philip Treacy titfer?

I love Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter as the cruel Red Queen. Cruel? Her face somehow reminds me of an Ideal Home kitchen c. 1954.

Good heavens, it's a double dose of Little Britain's Matt Lucas as Tweedle Dum n Tweedle Dee.
He's a good enough reason on his own to see this film.

Pure Burton magic. I love films that play with scale like this. Can't wait.

  3. La Dolce Vita and vicki archer, it was lovely to wake up this morning and find your comments! Thank you.

  4. So so funny! I just posted on Alice as well. I think that Matt Lucan will be perfect as Tweedle Dum and Dee! He's got the face for it.

  5. I just noticed yours too! I wish I had thought of 'curiouser and curiouser'.
