It has been long, eleven years to be precise, since Tim Burton successfully employed his skewered imagination to an adaptation that worked. Not since 1999's Sleepy Hollow has this eccentric film-maker made a movie that rekindled hope in fans-turned-critics that there may yet be good films in him. Although Alice in Wonderland is not one of Tim Burton's best movies, it is certainly one of his more charming ones, being a mix of old school Disney magic and Burtonesque surreal visuals.
