The Lone Ranger might’ve been a good movie but on a much smaller and simpler scale but instead the filmmakers attempted to recreate some of the conditions which made the Pirates of the Caribbean movies monumental successes down to Johnny Depp playing yet another make-up wearing quirky character. The action scenes aren’t that fun and get a bit tedious.

One would think when you get Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron on the same screen and an intriguing storyline it would make for, at minimum, an entertaining science-fiction thriller. Instead, The Astronaut’s Wife is a complete mess with subpar performances, a story that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense and direction that is at best sloppy.

The Rum Diary is the kind of film that doesn’t linger after it’s over. It’s not bad enough to mock or good enough to recommend, it kind of is just… there.

That said, if you keep your expectations in check and are willing to suspend some disbelief you just might have a good time with this comedy/thriller.

Sadly, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland doesn’t deliver outside of some great looking visuals and his knack for the strange and bizarre, but like even the best of Burton’s films, the characters are rarely compelling and often one-dimensional. This 3D Blu-ray on the other hand does at least offer a third-dimension and easily one of the best 3D BD releases yet. Everything else in this set is basically the same from the original 2D Blu-ray including the audio and features but for those set up with 3D technology, this would be an easy purchase.

Alice in Wonderland has all the technical achievements to be a great and memorable Tim Burton movie that we come to know and respect. The visual effects look great, the voice talent is good… unfortunately the story failed to do anything for me and the performances are all around too strange to either be funny or endearing.
