I'm Mad About Alice!
I tooke my boyz, (note to self: You are 42 years old & unable to pull off using the term "boyz") John & Jack to see Alice In Wonderland today & LOVED it!
It just doesn't matter what they do, Tim Burton & Johnny Depp are perfect together. At the beginning of the move you would'nt guess it was Tim Burton, but once Alice drops down that rabbit hole all is perfect. Don't get me wrong, the beginning is visually beautiful and shows that Burton isn't a one trick pony.
There are a couple of moments where it's hard to understand what's being said, but I think that's to be expected since Lewis Carroll's original book made up plenty of words.
Anne Hathaway does a thing with her hands all the time that I found distracting, and there was something that happened at the end of the movie that almost wrecked it for me, but I don't want to say what it was and give anything away.
I do have to mention that we saw the movie in 3-D and wow has 3-D gotten better since the 80's. I've seen it on an I-max screen, but not at a regular theater in a really long time. It rocked!
If you're not a Burton/Depp fan this probably won't be your cup of tea, but if you are it's a great trip! (Speaking of a trip, any of you who may have done any "experimenting" in youth may have a flashback feeling, but in a good way!)
