What I can say, weighing the bad against the good, is that this story didn't need Tim Burton. In fact, no stories with any touch of subtle creepiness need him, because what he does is exaggerate the creep factor to the point of irrelevance. Pretty, cartoonish, marketable irrelevance, yes, but irrelevance all the same. Alice In Wonderland would be dark and fantastical without Tim Burton's Magic Goth Frosting smeared all over it, and it would come off as less shallow and rehearsed, as well.
