AttheMovies_t670

Tim Burton’s weird version of Alice in Wonderland made a ton of money for some reason.  I’m not sure why.  It did.  I caught it when I was visiting my parents off their cable system.  It was weird and freaky, with Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp being odd.  You know.  Standard Tim Burton movie.

Anyway, there’s a sequel that Burton didn’t direct coming soon.  Trailer after the cut.

Johnny Depp is not the only one owes his career to Freddy.

Actually, we’ll also look at Friday, but I had to lead with that Brad Pitt picture.  As for it’s caption, I assume most of us know that before he decided to purposely derail his own career (according to Watson), Johnny Depp was a big bloody stain in the first, and by far best, Nightmare on Elm Street movie.

But back on point (editor’s note: Jimmy, you have a point?  This just seems like filler so you don’t have to wash Watson’s car), do you remember that there was a Nightmare TV series called Freddy’s Nightmare’s that ran from 1988 to 1990?  Probably not, and for good reason, it was horrible.  The biggest issue with such a series was that it really had nothing to do with the movies, and usually only featured Robert Englund as Freddy Kruger in a Tales From The Crypt-esque hosting capacity.
