Ever since news came out that Tim Burton would be making a live version of Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Deep as the Mad Hatter, fans have waited with bated breath. By now if you were planning on going to see the movie you probably already have, so it is safe to talk about it.

Now I am a huge fan of Tim Burton, the Mad Hatter, and the insanity of the Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass books. The movie was based more on Alice Through the Looking Glass (about when she was grown) with a flashback to the original Alice in Wonderland. This was a movie that was better in 3-D, but wasn’t crucial. In fact the best thing about the movie was the graphics. The movie was short and the story seemed a bit rushed. There were little continuity problems (the cuts on Alice’s are getting better and worse depending on the scene) but nothing that took away from the movie as a whole. That being said it was still worth the experience, even if it is just to see for yourself if Deep’s dancing ruins the movie.

Once one of your favorite actors, actresses, directors, etc. takes on a role you will always be more excited to see it than a film without someone you have an interest in seeing. I can’t decide if I am being to hard or too easy on Alice in Wonderland, but it is worth seeing especially if you can still see it in 3-D.
