On paper, Tim Burton would appear to be the ideal guy to adapt Lewis Carroll's trippy tale for the big screen. Sadly, he gets lost down his own rabbit hole of eye-candy quirk. Alice in Wonderland is a gorgeous mess. Even Johnny Depp, who 
 rarely disappoints, seems like he's frantically pulling out tricks and tics from his other (better) Burton collaborations: 
 a dose of Scissorhands, a dash of Wonka. Honestly, there's just too much of everything...except 
 EXTRAS. The standard DVD has three slight featurettes — the best shows off Depp's watercolor sketches of the Mad Hatter. The Blu-ray serves up profiles of each of the main characters and a deeper behind-the-scenes look at the production.
