Alice In Wonderland (2010)

Not a bad way to start February.

I personally enjoy this movie. Not many people do but I liked how they did the story. The story is more or less a sequel to the original Alice In Wonderland with Alice all grown up and rediscovering the dark, psychotic Wonderland all over again. This movie is directed by Tim Burton and I am a big fan of his work and his unique style of how things look works incredibly well in Wonderland. It's dark, it's eerie, even the bright places look mysterious and deranged. It just works perfectly. The cast does a good job too, Mia Wasikowska nailed a all grown up Alice and it shows that her role has matured since she was a young girl wandering around Wonderland, Johnny Depp is a enjoyable Mad Hatter with enough weirdness to keep you guessing and can still be very funny. Everyone else does a good job in the movie, we have Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar, and Stephen Fry as my personal favorite character the Cheshire Cat and many more fun characters to be found in this interesting retelling of Lewis Carroll's novel. I have to say I am looking forward to the sequel Through The Looking Glass, it looks much more beautifully designed and we get all our original actors back which makes me very happy to say the least. All in all, I would only reccomend this particular film if you are a fan of Alice In Wonderland, or Tim Burton. Other than that I leave that up to you. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
