    1. yes, this second movie came quite out of a sudden... I don't think we need it... I barely managed to watch half an hour of the first one it was so dreadfully monotonous and lifeless.. as most Burton's movies are lately

    1. I love it when they do those big old fashioned movies of theirs, like TANGLED and FROZEN and now GIGANTIC

  9. We LOVED Finding Nemo, so we are really looking forward to Finding Dory.

    I wasn't thrilled with the first Alice In Wonderland, so I'm an idiot and will sit through this next one as well. Only because my niece loves all things Alice In Wonderland, I get sucked into it too.

    Gigantic looks promising as well!

    1. I thought I'd die when I watched ALICE... such a dreadfully boring affair... I think Burton makes movies to bore us to death... although they indeed are visually splendid.... I always though his movies are made for those who smoke weed

      Delete
    2. Bwhahaha! I'm not a weed smoker, but I do like most of his movies. Nightmare Before Christmas will always be my all time favorite film. I do love how they turn out visually as well, but what draws me to them are the mix of whimsy and weirdness. I'm usually drawn to the things that most people consider abnormal or weird though.

    3. I don't count NIGHTMARE BC because that is his old phase... but I'm thinking of last ten years from BIG FISH to ALICE and other of his more recent borefests

    4. maybe if you stop buying suits and start saving for Bora... you save enough for Bora Bora too

  10. Lots of cool animated films coming then :)
