Alice In Wonderland Movie Rating: 4


Alice has grown up a lot since she first found herself in Wonderland. But when the 19-year-old Alice receives a surprise marriage proposal, she follows the white rabbit back down into Wonderland, instead of answering her suitor.


Old Friends New Troubles

Once Alice floats down the tunnel and drinks a shrinking potion she is soon reunited with all the old friends she’d long forgotten—the Mad Hatter (played by a firey-haired Johnny Depp), Tweedledee and Tweedledum, even the grinning Chershire Cat! But this is not the whimsical Wonderland Alice remembers—the Red Queen has gathered a massive army and it’s up to Alice to fight her—and the Queen's evil servant, the dragon-like Jabberwock—and restore peace to Wonderland.




The Bottom Line

Director Tim Burton has done it again! Although his retelling of the classic Alice story is a bit short on story, the visual delights in this 3D adventure are marvels for the senses. The dark imagining of Wonderland (or Underland--apparently Alice misheard the name) offers beast after merciless beast, and thanks to the 3D you'll find yourself ducking as the Mad Hatter tosses tea cups right through the screen. Newcomer Mia Wasikowska plays Alice as a strong, smart young woman with an independent streak. And Johnny Depp unleashes all his goofiness as the Mad Hatter. But despite all the zaniness, you might want to leave your little brother or sister at home for this one. There's a handful of disturbing scenes that might give them (or even you) nightmares. And it's even scarier in 3D!

    So this guy walks into the doctor's and says "Doctor, it hurts when I poke my leg like this." The doctor says "Yes, you've shattered both your kneecaps. You'll never walk again."  A white guy, a black guy, and a spanish guy jump off a building. They all die on impact and their families mourn their loss for years to come. Today I decided to burn alot of calories. So I found a fat kid and lit him on fire.
