Curiouser and Curiouser, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

The well-loved tale Alice in Wonderland goes 3D with the latest rendition of the old classic. Directed by the acclaimed Tim Burton, the tale weaves a masterful tale with amazing cinematography and eye-catching visuals. While it may come across as a little dark as compared to the fun and whimsical cartoon, the story is definitely captivating and entertaining. I never realized there was so much more to the story of Alice in Wonderland then there really is. I have to admit, however, that I don’t remember the original story as much anymore but I would recall certain characters and moments as I watched the film. I liked the fact that in this remake , Alice became an empowered and strong woman as she went through her journey in the Underland, which is reminiscent of Absalom’s own metamorphosis.

I loved the Mad Hatter, as played by Johnny Depp and the big-headed, head-chopping Red Queen as played by Helena Bonham Carter. These two artists are really masters at their crafts! I was a little thrown off by Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of the White Queen, mainly because she came off as a too “put-on” for me.

    I think it’s an interesting Burton film with some themes going on, for start the theme of individualism is prominent at the start of the movie, then the red queen is an example of individualism gone too far where she is evil as she only cares about her own wishes and not the wishes of others. But I think the ending was kind of naive, that is more down to screenplay than Tim Burton. It could have been better, but it is still an interesting movie.
