Depp's Willy Wonka character was based offa Michael Jackson, which is why he seemed so weird!
The movie had it's moments for sure, but the original with Gene Wilder is still the best!
Burton's great, but he seems to be losing his edge... look at Planet of the Apes. Beautiful movie, but lacked soul. Same with Sleepy Hollow.
Alice does look great, hopefully this is what puts him back on track!
