Now, if you don't know the premise of the infamous Alice in Wonderland, I must say I think you've been living under a rock for quite some time. If you read said link though, you might just have an idea of what you're in for. The original tale was imagined to occupy a trio of young girls while bored. Later re-imagined to incorporate more adventures, the true tale was born. That said, I'll admit, the story creeped me out a lot when I was younger.
Onto the film though...I. LOVED. it. Loved, loved, loved it! I knew it would be trippy going in because, as I'm sure many of you are aware, Tim Burton specializes in
Visually, this film is incredible. It's not like some dusty old Disney flick you remember from your childhood. This movie is alive. The colours, the characters, all of it...it's an intense visual journey/trip from start to finish. And frankly, I wouldn't mind falling down a rabbit hole to find Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, even though his hair and makeup was far crazier than that of Willy Wonka, which coincidentally, gave me nightmares. This film, however, did not.
The actors played their parts well, even Anne Hathaway (who I'm not too fond of), as the White Queen. I highly recommend seeing this in 3D if you can because it makes it that much more real and allows you to fully immerse yourself in the scenes. That said, I'm sure it's fantastic either way. I give this film 5++++++++++++++++++++ stars out of 5 , and I'll definitely be seeing this again! Below is the trailer for those who've yet to see it!
