The Only Time You’ll Want To Waste On ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ Is On Time Himself by Ashley Samour , May 26th, 2016 at 8:45pm Share on Facebook Share to TwitterWe all love Tim Burton’s darker dreams, cooky characters, and whimsical wars. Whether it be against the undead, out-of-this-world creatures, or the season of Christmas, we’ve consistently admired his creative take on both beloved and original characters. In Alice Through the Looking Glass , however, we lose a bit of his touch. Perhaps because he wasn’t in the director’s chair on this sequel. Although James Robin is a semi-seasoned director, mostly known for the newly revived Muppets movie franchise ( The Muppets & Muppets Most Wanted ) and Da Ali G Show series, it seems the only good that came out of his resumé is bringing in the oddly hilarious Sacha Baron Cohen as the newly added character, Time .The spotlight no longer shines on Johnny Depp as in the Burton picture. That honor goes to Sacha Baron Cohen as a new character, Time. Yes, he plays a human version of time , purveyor of the so-called Grand Clock in which Alice must retrieve the Chronosphere on a mission to save her old friend, the Mad Hatter.Even though he is friends with the Red Queen (suggested also a love interest), you cannot call Time a villain. He is, in the literal sense, the keeper of time and the amount everyone is allotted in the world of Wonderland.There are wonderfully funny moments of expressed interest towards the Red Queen, one where he gives her a tiny music box that has an executor beheading the king.He also is caught it a puny war with the Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Dormouse at their Tea Time. The Cheshire Cat makes an appearance and adds this line (my personal favorite) seen in the new trailers, “Actually, I’m right on time”, when accused of his tardiness. Watch the Tea & Time clip below!This is merely one example of the very funny quips, quarrels, and inquisitive moments revolving around Time and his adorable band of clock maintenance robots (also known as Seconds ). Catch plenty more this Friday, May 27th!Don’t forget to stay during the credits to see the lovely dedication to the late Alan Rickman, this being is final film work. He reprises his role as The Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland , now a Butterfly.
