I chose to see Alice in Wonderland last night. I'd been eyeing it on television for weeks knowing that this would be the one I saw in theaters. Now call me crazy but I am not a fan of 3D, I don't like the way it makes me feel, which is a little dizzy and tummy sick at times, so I avoid it. Not to mention the benefits of not having to spend anywhere from $13.50-15.50 just to have those silly 3D Glasses! Seriously, why so much?!
Is this really necessary? I think I can honestly say if you've never seen or read Alice in Wonderland then I must say that you need to pick up a copy because that is crazy! So I'm going to let you search for the description because you should be picking up a copy pronto!!! Childhood favorite of course!
Brilliant! I know I kind of gave it all away didn't I? However I couldn't help myself, last night after it was all over I could have turned right back around and saw it again, Tim Burton truly out did himself. Now I will say that if you are a huge fan of Tim Burton there is a slight chance you'll be disappointed. This movie isn't as dark as his others, however at times it is still very creepy. Johnny Depp plays the wonderful Mad Hatter, and it couldn't have been better played, but after all it is Johnny Depp! Mia Wasikowska who plays Alice was so elegant and beautiful you simply couldn't take your eyes of her. With the cutest accent she was perfect for the role. Her curiousity was one of my favorites and her clothes were tremendous! She wore the same shade of blue throughout the movie but in several different forms of outfits, each unique and adorable. She was by far my favorite character in the film, her carefree, nononsense atttitude made me not want to leave the theater to even pee!!! The Red Queen was fantastic, with her oversized head, and certianly oversized personality it was kind of hard to dislike her but I had to for poor Alice's sake. The White Queen annoyed me a little and that is surely my taste but her light and airy personality wasn't what bothered me, it was her constant hands in the air trying to flow gracefully as she traveled from scene to scene, and she wore the darkest lipstick, I know I'm nit-picking here, but I can't say all good things! I was thankful that the crowd thoroughly enjoyed the movie, they remained quiet and no cell phone usage happened. I must say if there was really no noise and no light shining in your eyes Tim Burton truly made a great film.
