Saw Alice in Wonderland last night, and it was very enjoyable.  I loved the little throwbacks to the animated classic, and thought the new visuals were just stunning.  And Christopher Lee as the Jabberwock??  Ohhhhhyeah.   All of the voices were perfect for the characters... Stephen Fry = best Cheshire Cat ever.  And Johnny Depp made a fantastic Hatter; he seems to switch into different people throughout the movie, which goes so well with the character.  They didn't touch on the mercury poisoning, which is the reason the Hatter is mad, but I have a feeling there was much that was cut between pre-production and now.  The actress who played Alice was good, just the right mix of uncertain, innocent, and "much" (you'll get that reference when you see the movie).  So go and see it.  The funniest part is that the movie is listed as PG because of a smoking catepillar (among a few other reasons).  A smoking catepillar.  Right.  Because that is somehow worse than the 5 or so shots of someone getting stabbed in the eye by a dormouse.  Honestly.

It's a glorious morning here, and now it's time to gear up for some awesome praise and worship at church.  So I leave you with this:
