    And how can anyone say that this isn't a sequel? I guess it isn't technically, but come on! It's a sequel like - well, the only thing that comes to mind is Peter Schilling's "Major Tom (Coming Home)" is to David Bowie's "Space Oddity."

    Or sumpin.

    I'm sorry... i just... well... thought the movie was absolute crap. Thoughtless fluff that was pushed out and marketed as storytelling genius, yet burton didn't really tell much of a story at all... The 3-d should have been scrapped, since it was virtually nonexistent.

    Its sad when you get super excited to see a film like this and then walk out wondering just how much of the film was influenced by the merchandising departments at disney and hot topic.

    Lets just get this thing on dvd so people can forget about it already. (Indiana Jones 4, anyone?)
    Maleficent is to Dragon, as Icarian is to Roary West... only I don't need a hydraulic lift to make my magic happen.

    I'm due for a new DVD copy of the 1951 feature, and I was really hoping that they'd do a double set all-in-one of both. Oh well

    I haven't seen the movie. What I'm going to do is rent a copy from a Redbox machine for $1.10 and, if I like it, buy the Blu-Ray version for my new HDTV with a built-in Blu-Ray player.

    God, I love my new TV!
