Alice in Wonderland Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo Review

This time, Alice is all grown up (well, she's 19)! It's easier to identify with a teen Alice (played by Mia Wasikowska), who is just saying NO to an arranged marriage. Tim Burton's visuals are as colorful and "out there" as ever and, with characters like the crazy Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), blissful White Queen (Anne Hathaway), wretched Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), neurotic White Rabbit, etc., Blu-ray is the way to go … all the way down the rabbit hole!


Special Features

Even without 3D (remember wearing those funny glasses when you saw Alice in Wonderland in the movie theatre?), the film looks and sounds great, with bright colors and clear-as-a-bell sound effects (trust us: you can hear every little noise and rabbit thump coming through as well as music and dialogue. Awesome!).


You get almost two hours of extras in two sections: Wonderland Characters and Making Wonderland. Character sections are: Finding Alice, The Mad Hatter, The Futterwacken Dance, The Red Queen, Time-Lapse: Sculpting the Red Queen, and The White Queen.


Wonderland Characters

Wonderland Characters is cool cause each actor gets all excited about the film, working with Tim Burton and developing their characters. Johnny Depp talks again about real hatters being "mad" because of mercury poisoning in their work. These interviews are only a few minutes long but the actors are very cool and all are worth watching. You get Helena's make-up and digital "giant head" coverage and Johnny's The Futterwacken Dance to boot.


Making it Wonderland

The Making Wonderland special section features stuff about scoring the movie (that's about making the movie) and special effects, stunts, making the proper size, cakes of Wonderland and tea party props. You see Mia riding weird green screen "animals," characters on stilts, wire work and learn how Alice changed sizes. The cakes section features some pretty happy bakers who created the amazing tea party cakes.


All that, AND you get the digital copy for your portable device or computer and the regular DVD (which has bonus features, too, but not all the extras you get on Blu-ray).
