When the day becomes the night
and the sky becomes the sea,
When the clock strikes heavy
and there’s no time for tea.
And in our darkest hour,
before my final rhyme,
she will come back home to Wonderland
and turn back the hands of time.
– Cheshire Cat

Captain Jack Sparrow

captain-jack-sparrow

“- You are without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.”
“- Ah but you have heard of me.”

If you born yesterday or if you arrived to this planet recently and you DO NOT KNOW who is Jack Sparrow, this is what Wikipedia tells about Jack.

Captain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character and a main protagonist in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The character was created by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and is portrayed by Johnny Depp, who based his characterization on Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and cartoon character Pepé Le Pew. He first appears in the 2003 film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He later appears in the sequels Dead Man’s Chest (2006), At World’s End (2007), and On Stranger Tides (2011).

20

In the films, Sparrow is one of the nine pirate lords in the Brethren Court, the Pirate Lords of the Seven Seas. He can be treacherous and survives mostly by using wit and negotiation rather than by force, opting to flee most dangerous situations and to fight only when necessary. Sparrow is introduced seeking to regain his ship, the Black Pearl, from his mutinous first mate, Hector Barbossa. Later he attempts to escape his blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones while battling the East India Trading Company. The character’s role expanded as the films progressed.

And if you do not saw any of his movies, what are you waiting for? But first, take a look on the YouTube video in the final of this post with some of the best moments of Captain Jack Sparrow.

edward_scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands is a 1990 American romantic fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp. The film shows the story of an artificial man named Edward, an unfinished creation, who has scissors for hands. Edward is taken in by a suburban family and falls in love with their teenage daughter Kim. Supporting roles are portrayed by Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest, Anthony Michael Hall, Kathy Baker, Vincent Price (his last theatrical performance), and Alan Arkin.

This is my favorite Tim Burton’s movie ever.

The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland

mad-hatter

The Hatter (Hatta in Through the Looking-Glass, more commonly known as The Mad Hatter, and Tarrant Hightopp in the  Tim Burton’s 2010 movie), is a fictional character from Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. As Alice and the March Hare are the only other individuals to appear in both books, he can be considered a principal character. Although he is never referenced as ‘The Mad Hatter’ in either of Carroll’s books, the Hatter is portrayed as ‘mad’ and hence has become known as such.

mad-hatter-james-tennielIn Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Hatter explains to Alice that he and the March Hare are trapped in a never-ending tea party because, when he tried to sing for the Queen of Hearts at a celebration, she sentenced him to death for “murdering the time.” He escaped this fate, but Time, out of anger at his attempted to “murder”, has halted himself for the Hatter, keeping him and the March Hare at 6:00 pm forever. The tea party, when Alice arrives, involves switching places at the table at any given time (although based on the rotation, the Hatter is the only one to receive a clean cup since the other characters follow him); making (along with the March Hare) somewhat short, personal remarks; asking unanswerable riddles, and reciting nonsensical poetry, all of which eventually drive Alice away. The Hatter appears again as a witness at the Knave of Hearts’ trial, where the Queen appears to recognize him as the singer she sentenced to death, and the King of Hearts also cautions him not to be nervous “or I’ll have you executed on the spot.”

When the character makes his appearance as “Hatta” in the sequel Through the Looking-Glass, he is in trouble with the law once again. This time, however, he is not necessarily guilty: the White Queen explains that quite often subjects are punished before they commit a crime, rather than after, and sometimes they are condemned for crimes they haven’t committed. The Hatter is also mentioned as one of the White King’s messengers (the other is the March Hare) when the King explains that he needs two messengers: “one to come, and one to go.” Sir James Tenniel’s illustration also depicts him sipping from a teacup as he did before in the original novel, adding weight to Carroll’s hint that the two characters are indeed the same. Although he look exactly the same with the first book, it seem Alice doesn’t recognize him as the Mad Hatter. The dramatis personae for Through the Looking-Glass designates him as being a white pawn.

The phrase “as mad as a hatter” refers to the 19th century usage of a mercury-based compound in the making of fine hats. Due to long-term exposure, hatters would often develop symptoms of mercury posioning, such as tremors or mood-swings, that would make them appear “mad” to others.

Disney’s Film Adaptations

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

The Mad Hatter is voiced by Ed Wynn in Disney’s 1951 film. He is first seen when Alice wonders off in the forest and the Cheshire Cat tells her to visit them for directions back home. Alice visits but in the middle of a very odd Tea Party with the March Hare, The Mad Hatter and the Dormouse. The Mad Hatter and March Hare are singing A Very Merry Unbirthday but is interrupted when Alice starts to clap. First The Mad Hatter and March Hare are upset because Alice was not asked to join but become pleased when Alice explains to them that she enjoyed their singing and they welcome her to join.

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010)

Tim Burton’s Mad Hatter, named Tarrant Hightopp, first met Alice when she was a young child at the age of seven. They became friends quickly, even enjoying tea together. Alice forgot these memories while she was away from Underland, but at the age of nineteen, Alice falls down the rabbit hole again. She has no recollection of Tarrant when she rediscovers his tea table of friends and joins them in their rebellion against the Red Queen. Johnny Depp portrayed the Mad Hatter in the 2010 movie. In the movie, he is known for his Futterwacken which is a dance of immense joy.
