Alice In Wonderland

A visual treat from Master cliche filmmaker Tim Burton Made for pretty much everyone who sees it, but mostly little emo kids wearing Jack Skellington shirts.

Rated PG for fantasy action/violence involving scary images and situations, and for a smoking caterpillar.

Alice In Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is the latest of the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration and I think one of the better recent ones. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice, but not the Alice we grew up with. This is an older Alice who has dreams of a place with cats that can smile and blue caterpillars, who is pulled back into “Underland” once again. After falling down the rabbit hole she meets a host of characters who seem to be trying to decide if she is the “real” Alice or not. Before too long Alice meets that blue caterpillar from her dreams who tells her of her destiny in “Underland” and is interrupted by a hunting party sent by the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter).

3 1/2 out of 5
