Pete Wentz Approves Of 'Alice In Wonderland': The MTV News Quote Of The Day03/05/2010, MTV
"What Tim [Burton] did was essentially move the 'Alice' story into his own world. I don't want to give much away, but for the actors to have to work with CGI characters it appeared almost seamless. And yes, girls, Johnny Depp is still flawless in every single way. I think this is a movie I'd have to see twice to fully grasp it. Mark Hoppus tried the old hole-in-the-popcorn-bag trick with me. It did not work. The movie, however, did."
Pete Wentz, commenting on the new Tim Burton film "Alice in Wonderland" in a review written exclusively for MTV News. Wentz saw the film on Thursday night (March 4) with Blink-182's Mark Hoppus (who also wrote his own review). "I think it would be an incredibly daunting task to create an 'Alice in Wonderland' film that simultaneously stuck to the original text, held true to the beloved animated version, and set out to blaze its own trail," Hoppus wrote. "Tim Burton did an amazing job of incorporating all three into a great movie."
It's a good thing both of the music stars enjoyed the new flick (which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter and Anne Hathaway), as the pair contributed a song to Almost Alice, a soundtrack album that accompanies the release of the film. The track, "In Transit," represents Wentz's first music since leaving Fall Out Boy. "I can't imagine playing in FOB again," he wrote. "Something would have to change in my head or my heart ... not my wallet."
In addition to "In Transit," Almost Alice features tracks by Avril Lavigne, Owl City, the All-American Rejects, Tokio Hotel and 3OH!3.
