ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Alice in Wonderland highlights Director Tim Burton’s unique creative style with a highly interesting, interpretive rendition of Alice in Wonderland. Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is even more fresh and different than the introduction of Brad Silberling’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events in 2004. The acting is superbly well done with heavy reliance on the talents of Johnny Depp, up and coming Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, and appearances from Anne Hathaway. The special effects are superb with especially outstanding set decoration (Karen O’Hara), make-up (Legacy Effects), and costuming (Colleen Atwood). Overall, the movie keeps interest from the beginning to end.

Storyline

Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) follows a white rabbit and falls into a rabbit hole.

Additional Thanks

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. If for nothing else than seeing the costuming, make-up, and special effects, the film is worth at least one viewing.
