Huh, we must have seen different movies. It wasn't that bad.

I saw the movie last night and I agree with Sam 100%. I didn't like it. I liked the cat. I didn't understand why it was so important for Alice to return the Hatter's hat? The flashback with the jabberwalki burning children seemed out of place and unnecessary. Oh great the Hatter is all sad and deep now. ::) I don't recommend it.

Oh yeah, too many pasty white people.

I saw it yesterday. I wouldn't recommend it, but I thought it was okay, just not great.

I think that they were trying to establish that the hatter has multiple personalities, and failed. I also had a problem with the detachable eyes. Also, if anyone hasn't figured it out, I know why Alice in this movie is so old. It's not supposed to be a remake- it's supposed to be a sequel.

Yes, I don't think anybody was puzzled by the fact it was a sequel  :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Can someone explain something I found confusing: What was up with the door mouse? In the original story, she was just a sleepy/drunken mouse. In the movie, she's like Joan of Arc from Redwall. Then later, she's at the tea party acting like the silly mouse that she should be, then goes back to being heroic ten minutes later.

I think its because all the Narnia bleeding into the story was making the dormouse channel Reepicheep.

One of the first things I said as I left the theater was "I can't wait for The Dawn Treader and Reepicheep now."
Probably not a Goat, either.
