Childhood Classics turn Horrific

So the generation before ours had Rhol Dahl's classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Then we had Gene Wilder and his gentle blue eyes grace ours and our parent's generation with Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Yay childhood memories.

Uh Oh. Tim Burton comes along and casts, what a surprise, his pet: AKA Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Depp looked so terrifying as Willie Wonka that my little cousins are scared of this new version. Yay, childhood nightmares.

Oh, and now it gets WORSE. Our gracious Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Caroll's story, is being taken to a whole new horror. Disney had it perfectly balanced, to shock and amaze children with this story. Oh, but Tim Burton, why are you further ruining my childhood stories and memories for our newer generation of young viewers? (I know this is not aimed for a child audience, but this is how Alice In Wonderland will be re- instated in our minds) AGHHH Johnny Depp is absolutely horrifying! I saw this ad on a bus stop in Manhattan, and really wanted to take it down. Does Depp know just how rediculous he looks?! Yay childhood night terrors.
