I was never really a fan of the Disney version back in the day but it's one of those films that really anchors your youth. You have to have seen the cartoon at least once in your life - like the musical Mary Poppins or Sound of Music. And you realize all these adult things later on in your life that are present in the movie that you didn't realize before - that the Cheshire cat was actually smoking weed or shisha or something. Haha. Amongst other things. And wow... this Alice is just really gullible. She'll eat and drink anything. But that's what makes her Alice.
Yesterday, I was able to catch the movie with my RENT family... finally after so many failed attempts of watching Alice and Wonderland. And i must say, it's not as bad as what a lot of other people have been saying about the film. Saw it on 3D in Greenbelt and the cinematography and the visual strength of the Tim Burton film was so compelling that you're literally transported into the world of Alice.
I like seeing the beauty in the ugly and the obscure. The fat boys. The white and red queen. Crispin Glover's character. The pale Alice. The mad hatter. The silence. Everything worked, save for a few dips in the movie's progression that made some parts rather boring. I liked the flashback though. And also the final battle.
More importantly... I got to see my RENT family who I've grown attached to since RENT went full throttle. Everyone seems to be doing well. I'm happy for them :) This is so much better than the last time I saw everyone - in the 9works party when I was literally a goner. haha.
