I prefer syfy's modern interpretation of the story, where ya the whole traveling to a different universe/time/place through a mirror, but most other things arent that far fetched

I agree, though I enjoyed Burton's version as well. My favorite Alice in Wonderland film is still the 1999 television version. BTW, interested people should watch "Alice on the Wall"

It is a pity that the SyFy ALICE did not get the coverage of the Burton/Depp concoction. It rocked in a way that the mega millions and even the inclusion of my all time favorite voice in the Universe (Alan Rickman)which was bestowed on the film did not. It had originality and characters that were far from shallow caricatures.

I loved both versions. Another great one is Danny Dyer's Malice in Wonderland.

My favorite Alice In Wonderland is the one from 1951 the Disney classic.
Nothing beats it oldschool.
:D
But the TV miniseries is good too.

Syfy's version filled in what the Burton one was unable to do. Cement me as an AlicexHatter fan. Burton gave teases and was originally supposed to have Alice and Hatter kiss at the end, but they had to cut it for "personal reasons".
I know of some people who shipped an Older!Alice and Hatter before, but the chemistry between Potts and Scorsone made them the only pair I could see making this work. As much as I love Tim Burton, Depp and Vashikovska didn't really click for me. AlicexHatter to me will always mean the "brunnete, buttkicking" Alice and the "cute, British" Hatter "with a moustache."
The difficulty with making something completely foolproof is that the designers always
underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. H2G2

I really enjoyed Syfy's Alice more than Burton's. The acting made a big difference as well

hi i just got a copy of the dvd and watched it for the first time, and thought it was awesome, and much better than the Burton version. The overall acting seemed better, and the onscreen character chemistry was really convincing.
