I few weeks back I watched Alice In Wonderland on opening night and was quite entertained. Alice In Wonderland was filled with great actors and actresses and was directed by the famed Tim Burton. I have always enjoyed a good Tim Burton film especially Beetle Juice, Batman and Edward Scissorhands.
They did a great job casting Alice In Wonderland. With Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Mia Wasikowska there were some good performances. I felt that the red queen played by Carter (Harry Potter) completely stole the show. The red queen had lots of witty one liners that made the dialogue entertaining. I actually looked forward toseeing the red queen just to stare at her characters midget body and oversized head. Watching the previews for this movie I was fully expecting Depp to blow our minds with a Pirates of the Caribbean /Charlie and the Chocolate factory twist but it just didn't happen for me. He was entertaining but he didn't seem to go over the top like I was expecting and it was a bit of a let down for me. Anne Hathaway (Bride Wars, Get Smart) was a recognisable face but lacked any chance of being memorable. Mia Wasikowska (Amelia, Defiance) played Alice and while watching I didn't recognise her from any other movies so I would say that next to a near all star cast she did a good job. I think Alan Rickman (Die Hard, Harry Potter) was a great addition as the voice of the blue caterpillar... "Stupid Girl!"
Overall the movie was a success and I'm sure media sales will be high as Johnny Depp and Tim Burton fans will eat this up. Plus I expect it to release in a beautiful Blu-Ray and perhaps even 3D Blu-Ray copy. As a final thought this movie is appropriate for children but does offer a layer of adult humour and computer animation.
In one word, Alice In Wonderland was: Enjoyable.
