I don't know if Franz feels this way, but I do. I'm really getting sick of Tim Burton. His revisionist versions of established sources of late have left me cold. That Johnny Depp shits all over this movie makes me even more angry (don't call it Alice in Wonderland if it's not wholly based on the original story, call it something else).

Personally, I hope it's a failure just so that maybe the studios won't just throw money at Burton to make crap.

I sincerely hope this doesn't happen.

Why not, Franz? You don't like Tim Burton?

The three of them have not had an opportunity to do much else over the last decade. The films had to be finished before these kids aged too much and I am sure they wanted to spend some time on their education. I wonder if any of them have any acting talent that will keep them working.

Well, this one isn't the last film, since they are splitting the last book in two and releasing them 8 months apart. The final Harry Potter film will be released in July 2011.
