Tank Top Tuesday: Burton’s Babes Edition

You know, I enjoyed “Alice in Wonderland.” Truth be told, I pretty much enjoy all Tim Burton films on one level or another. “Alice” was a good film, not a great film. It was fun, but without some of the wonder you'd expect Burton to bring to the land. But what I really liked were the women in the film (I know, I know – when don’t I like the women in a film?). I wasn’t familiar with Mia Wasikowska before the movie. I’d never seen “In Treatment” and just basically didn’t know her from Mia Hamm. But, oooh and doogie. Did she make an impression. Actually, I think it was her suit of armor that made an indelible impression. Say what you will, but Tim Burton has great taste in women. (Men, too, but – gosh – who doesn’t love Johnny Depp?)

Sometimes I forget how many DIFFERENT things he's done... I only seem to remember the strange/twisted/dark things of recent years... Which I love, but it's nice to remember he has layers.

Ms. Snarker, I owe you a debt of gratitude :) You see, I'm of the forty-something (too damn close to fifty) generation and you are my pop-culture source keeping me abreast (pun-intended) of the young talent I would otherwise not know the names of. That stated, I wouldn't be an avid follower if you did not do such a wonderful job of featuring the seasoned talent, i.e. Pam's beautiful image in today's lineup.

I'd buy you a coffee of your choosing and a sweet-bun freshly baked if I could. In the absence of such an ability, I offer you a heart-felt thank you!

I thought the film lacked development in a lot of places. Hathaway was terrible, and that's that. The finest acting, as always, comes from Bonham Carter* and Depp*. I didn't feel the lead was strong enough (i.e. was outshone by the big names*.)

Other than that, sure, the movie was thoroughly enjoyable. But then again, any movie you get to hold hands through is probably a good movie by the end of it.

Armor Top Tuesday? Does this mean we get Xena pics next week?

Armour doesn't give you the lovely alliteration with any day... but I'd certainly be happy to see it show up with more regularity.

Lovely to look at, and inspires great can-opener fantasies!

Lovely tank tops, thank you. And SJP was also in Mars Attacks...well, at least her head was.
