(Photo source). I’ve watched Alice in Wonderland in 3D, not expecting much about the film even if it’s directed by Tim Burton.
Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, Mia Wisakowska (she looks much like Gwyneth Partlow) as Alice, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen were all effective in their roles. Although the film is visually stunning, I just felt that it lacked the right amount of thrill. It came to a point that whenever the scenes were slowing down, I kept reminding myself to just be entertained by the visuals, fancy dresses and make-ups, and few entertaining scenes (my most fave was when the very tiny Alice was put inside the tea pot). Personally, I think that the appearance of the Red Queen made the scenes came into life. Maybe it’s because of her bulky head and the humour she graced whenever she spoke.
When I went out of the cinema, I never had an aftershock or hang over of the film. I wonder what happened to the magical fantasy touch that it’s supposed to give to the audience.

Have you seen Avatar?
We watched it last Friday and I still cannot get over my amazement. The storyline may not be too outstanding but the effects were dazzling. My jaws dropped. Seriously. 😉
Worth the wait. Pressure ‘to sa mga susunod na pelikula. James Cameron has set another standard in making a well-blended film. In a way, you would wish it would not end until the fifth hour because it is overwhelming and engaging.
Must see film. On the big screen. And if possible, see it in 3D. Worth all the cents.
