John & Becky’s Movie Review of Alice in Wonderland

Becky and I took the kids to see the new movie Alice in Wonderland on opening week at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at Alice in Wonderland describes the movie as follows:

“From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes an epic 3D fantasy adventure “Alice in Wonderland”, a magical and imaginative twist on some of the most beloved stories of all time. Johnny Depp stars as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. The all-star cast also includes Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Crispin Glover…”

The Review
Alice in Wonderland is totally amazing! It’s no surprise that this film did over $100 million on opening weekend. Tim Burton has done it again by creating an enchanted world and in this version Alice has grown-up and found herself falling down the rabbit hole once again. She doesn’t realize that the dreams she has been having since she was a child were about a land she had been to previously. It’s really cool the way they tied it all together and she was able to discover six impossible things.

All of our kids really liked this movie, except Bianca who is 9 years old thought it was a little too scary compared to the original cartoon, but she still liked it. The special effects in this movie are fantastic and the story is really good, along with the costumes being super cool too. Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter was really wild. Kind of like Wonka in the Willy Wonka flick, he’s even more nuts. The acting is very good in this movie too with great characters.

On thing of interest to me was that the White Queen needed a champion to defeat the dragon on her behalf and from a Christian perspective I thought this movie had some parallels to the Christian faith. In the same way, God is looking for His champions to slay the dragons in this world, which is really cool.

We all really liked Alice in Wonderland and definitely recommend this as a Don’t Miss It.
