Alice in Wonderland Movie Review

Introducing the magical ball of wonder which will make all your dreams come true for only $2! Not really.

I saw the Alice in Wonderland movie on Friday. I generally don't like to wait in line for movies so I avoid going when they first come out but Alice was obviously an exception. I did like it alot but it wasn't as perfect as it should have been. All the characters were introduced way too quickly and there wasn't enough of the magical whimsical feel I wanted it to have. Being in 3-D, I expected to feel like I was Alice wandering through this magical place blombastered by all the beautiful imagery around me. Sort of like I was in a dreaming lucid state which is how I felt in Avatar but it didn't have that. The 3d of the environments really wasn't all that great, and was kinda blurry.
I loved his visions of alot of the characters such as the Red Queen with her big head and piggy cushion which I think was awesome. I also loved the cat with its teal stripes which is excatly how I would have made him and the crazy laughing rabbit.
I really did not like the caterpillar at all, I think his personality and tone of voice was way cooler in the original Alice. What I also found odd is he was teal but in the Alice UD pallete, "Absolem" is green. I also loved the twin "fat boys". Overall, it was a good movie which is definately worth seeing and I am getting it when it comes out on DVD. But somehow it just left me wanting more.


  1. I agree that the 3-D was a little pointless for this movie. I could have saved a few bucks and gone to the regular. But I liked the movie too, I loved the Cheshire cat, and the makeup of all the characters was fantastic. :)

  2. Yeah haha gotta love the makeup!!
