Alice In Wonderland (2010)

Tagline: You’ve got a very important date

Synopsis: Alice returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.

Meat & Potatoes: I finally got around to seeing Tim Burton‘s new film and while not completely disappointed, I must admit I didn’t leave the theater feeling all that satisfied. I mean Johnny Depp gave a good performance and Tim Burton’s interpretation and visual style seemed a good fit with the material but aside from that it just wasn’t…different enough?  Well, before you get in a huff let me explain.  The original books by Lewis Carroll‘s, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass have inspired numerous film and television adaptations as well as what classifies as Works Based on Alice In Wonderland.  As you know or can readily discern from a little research, this story and the myriad of iterations are staggering if not conclusive.  Perhaps it is my own disinterest in the prevalence of remaking, repackaging, re-branding stories and movies from yester year that prevented me from thoroughly enjoying Tim Burton’s Alice.   I suppose it might be more enjoyable to a younger audience or in the company of children, and while I think it is worth watching, I’d suggest saving some money and watch it at home.

The Closer: With that said, the 2010 Alice is every bit the jam-packed techno-rama special-FX laden 3D experience one would expect these days and if you have children or are a child at heart you should watch this one or in the least – add it to your rental queue.
