    13th March- I went to watch " Alice In Wonderland"2D with my cousins.. So I'm writing a compact review about it. =)And since no one write a review for movie before,I not sure which place should I post this in. Either in "Books, Music, TV &Movies" Or in"GBAtemp Magazine Reviews"Please move if I posted this in the wrong place.

    Alice In Wonderland Review

    [​IMG]

    One thing you need to know before watching the movie – this is a semi-sequel, NOT a remake of the previous Alice In Wonderland (1951) classic cartoon movie.
    [​IMG]
    Why did I say that? Because this 1951 classic cartoon film happened when Alice was 9years old. And this 2010 film, Alice is a 25year-old grown up+ And the story line is different.Here's the summary:

    Click on the spoiler button
    if you really want to read the summary of the story. I do not wish to spoil the story for you if you've not watched it lol.

    A grown up 19-year-old Alice Kingsley who has forgotten about her childhood journey into Underland (she misheard it as 'Wonderland') and once more takes a trip down the rabbit-hole after ducking out on an engagement proposal that has been arranged without her acknowledgment. Having now returned to the magical world that she thought it was all just a dream, Alice has been destined to save the Underland/'Wonderland' inhabitants from the tyrannical reign of the Red Queen.

    Graphic:
    Obviously, they put quite a lot of effort into Alice In Wonderland. It is not a classic cartoon film, and it should be a cartoon film on "humanity" right? Mmm Alice is in human form and some other creatures are in cartoon form.The art is awesome, well paced. The graphic is way to art. Not the familiar bright colour, some may not like it.

    Sound:

    Highly tuned sound quality.Kinda considered a good job. It is pretty thrilling and this managed to make the film more interesting than it actually is.

    Story-Line:
    Creative imagination. This is a cartoonish film and is pretty illogical but the idea is awesome. Very, very interesting - IF you listen to the dialogue properly.

    Child-friendly rate:

    Why am I writing this? Because I think everybody thought this movie is a childish movie but it actually not.I dun really think this film is suitable for children. I dun think small kids will really enjoy it. Most of the interesting part is in the dialogue. Do you think kids will catch the dialogue properly? It will only make them think that this story doesnt have a story line at all.

    Casts presentation:

    [​IMG]

    Mia Wasikowska did a decent job. Showed that she's lonely persona as Alice. Anne Hathaway, The White Queen doesn't show up much in the movie. Just a side character of the story. I think the best side character is Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter. Before I watched this movie, I thought Mad Hatter was a bad man. But he's actually a good man. But he is REALLY CRAZY - in a good way. He can even make the movie touching.

    Final Word:
    Even though I sat in the C row, the 3rd front row, which will make your neck ultra-painful when watching the film, but this film managed to make me forgot about my neck and made me completely into it. LOL. Personally, I feel that this is a great movie and it was worth watching.

    Final Score:8/10

    I dun think this movie 3D would be nice since it was from 2D converted to 3D. 2D would be enough for you to enjoy [​IMG]

    It was so funny yet mature. I loved it, and Johnny Depp was brilliantly demented as usual. It has so much charm and was so beautifully made.

    Also, I noticed that 3 actor in harry potter were there in the film, the guy playing Snape was the caterpillar, the woman playing Bellatrix LeStrange was the Red Queen, and the woman playing Madam Maxime was the delusional aunt of Alice.

    Johnny Depp was great, as always, and Helena Bonham Carter was perfect as the Red Queen. The rest of the movie? Aside from the visuals, which were excellent, it was unimaginative, leading to a cliche 'cliamactic' battle leaving me feeling nothing for the characters.

    6/10 from me.

    The battle is a little too plain. They should make the battle more thrilling, more interesting. [​IMG]

    It would have been nice to do something different than what everyone expects. I mean, it is Alice in Wonderland, that alone gives you free reign to do whatever you want.

    I watched the old Disney cartoon when I was younger, I'm interested in watching this sometime. I probably won't watch it until it's out on DVD, Blu-Ray and Pay-Per-View.

    I saw the movie last week, the red queen reminded of Margaret Thatcher for some reason.

    The person who plays the voice from what I heard in the previews reminds me of Bette Midler. [​IMG]

    The movie is pretty "Mehh" in my opinion. It's mildly entertaining to see Tim Burton's versions of all the Alice characters, but that's just it: These days, he spends way too much time trying to make his films weird and not nearly enough time making them good anymore.

    That's my opinion. [​IMG]

    i just watched the movie and i just got back,

    as for me, while i enjoy the new take on alice in wonderland, some parts of the movie feels draggy and boring, while others just doesnt make sense, so instead i just convinced myself that a lot has happened since the last time alice visited wonderland.

    and i totally agreed with the battle scene, they have a lot of people, seems like they could have made a decent war, instead, all we have is a boring mini battle that i rather fast forward if i could..
