Alice in Wonderland

A young girl when she first visited magical Underland, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) is now a teenager with no memory of the place -- except in her dreams. Her life takes a turn for the unexpected when, at a garden party for her fiance and herself, she spots a certain white rabbit and tumbles down a hole after him. Reunited with her friends the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the Cheshire Cat and others, Alice learns it is her destiny to end the Red Queen's (Helena Bonham Carter) reign of terror.

Alice in Wonderland

First I'd like to say I was apprehensive about the fact that this is a return of Alice. I wasn't sure how that would be handled, but I think Tim Burton pulled it off beautifully. True it has it's dark moments but it wouldn't be Tim Burton without it! Lastly but not leastly?... Of course Johnny Depp was amazing. When I first saw him on 21 Jump Street, I thought, just another pretty face, another fad. But role after role he proves he is more than a face. His interpretations of each character he portrays is nothing short of brilliant, (slightly crazy or not) and the part of the Mad Hatter is in keeping with his record. I highly recommend this movie. IT'S JUST FOR FUN!

Great visual effects, Johnny Depp his usual wacky self, a little dark, not the regular Alice and not for very small children, too scary.

This is the best movie ever! I say this having had favorites that are now pushed to the bottom of the list. The graphics are to die for. The actors are perfect. The special effects are awesome. You'll love this film.

Good versus evil, a topic that obviously never gets out of style. During the movie I found the mixture of real characters and animation irritating. Johnny Depp as usual shows great acting but seems to be stucked with the role of the slightly crazy. So is it still acting or is he just playing himself? Either way I still like him and he is the only reason that makes this movie worth watching. Otherwise it is just an okay movie for me, nothing spectacular.

Harsh Critics, Getting nit-picky...

I think people as a whole are getting a little too harsh. Like everyone is trying to be witty like Dr. House or something. Most of the reviews I read/hear come off like this movie was "horrible but a must see, none-the-less" which in and of itself makes no sense... And all the gripes folks had with said movie were so tiny and nit-picky, I couldn't help but wonder if movie reviewers as a whole are just too anal/spoiled these days.
(ironic I know)

Moving on. It was a lot more subtle that I anticipated. This movie really came off um... "narrow". It really felt like the entire movie was shot on a tiny stage. Everything seemed a bit cramped. Am I complaining? No. This worked for this film, in that each sequence happened on a "page" and developed like you were watching a book being read to you. I could assume this was intentional, but you never know these days, even with decent to good directors.

The story is NOT "Alice in Wonderland", but in fact "Through the Looking Glass". With some alterations for back-story. The flow is good, and the characters are all paced out and carried throughout the story. Alice was played really well, some say she was flat, but to me she really came off as in a perpetual state of disbelief and questioning. She didn't take any situation too serious, and was mostly fearless 'watching' the events play out, which fit the character's situation. I think people have gotten too use to the hyper-emotional portrayals in blockbuster movies and TV shows that they aren't accustomed to realistic character portrayals. The other characters are played out well, the Mad Hatter is less 'Mad' and more 'Psychotic'. The White Rabbit and the March Hare are both delivered amazingly, The White Queen, to me, was the most 'Tim Burton-eqsue' character in the entire film, being the good queen, yet, she's extremely knowledgeable of potions and in possession of some questionable ingredients. The Red Queen was perfectly childish and selfish, and equaled by child like malice. I like the direction they took with her, reminded me a lot of the female henchman in Austin Powers.

The Cheshire Cat... This guy deserves his own paragraph. He IS a cat. He flops around warping around in and out of time and space, looking out for his own amusement. His portrayal in this was a bit more neutral. He seemed a bit less sociopathic than other portrayals, and more opportunistic. If anything this movie is worth seeing just for this cat.

Worth seeing in the theatre? Yes. I did not see the 3d version, but I wish I had. In fact the movie I saw was out of focus, and the movie was still ok.

I always loved the story of Alice and Wonderland and this movie was wonderful! I was a little skeptical of the way 'Johnny Depp' looked the in previews. I thought he looked like a clown. But he pulled it off great! The Queen of Hearts was also a surprise. She did a great job too. Cheshire cat was really kool! And 'Alice' did a good job too. It had a different ending than others, but it was ok. I will diffinitely buy this one when it comes out on disc.
