Alice in Wonderland
A world of wonders in One Great Picture
On a golden afternoon, young Alice follows a White Rabbit, who disappears down a nearby rabbit hole. Quickly following him, she tumbles into the burrow - and enters the merry, topsy-turvy world of Wonderland! Memorable songs and whimsical escapades highlight Alice's journey, which culminates in a madcap encounter with the Queen of Hearts - and her army of playing cards!
Dear Disney People,
This one was really strange. I don't think I understood everything. I really, really liked the cat with the big grin.
My dad liked it a lot. Maybe more than I did. He kept laughing all the time. He's a bit strange.
Hugs and kisses,
(Dirk is my dad. He made me watch this)
Review In A Nutshell:
Our world is held together by logic and rules, ensuring a sense of understanding in every action we perform and every decision we make. There is always something driving behind or underneath, even if we can't see it ourselves. Through a young person's eyes, there is still much to learn about the world; they go to school in order to understand these fundamentals, and find success within it. Despite the wisdom being passed down to them, an imagination still lurks underneath, sometimes more than one would normally have. It is there that they start to create their own rules, sometimes losing themselves to the delusions of their own personal realities. Creativity has a purpose, it builds…
This is the definitive Alice in Wonderland for me and will never be topped.

Question of the Day: Can I like a film that has beautiful animation but has no plot, no character development, and not point to it?
The simple answer is no I cannot. This film will be easily forgettable once my journey with Disney is done. I always thought this film came out of after the death of Disney because it lacked that Disney magic, it lacks those fantastic songs and characters you just adore. The only part of this film that is great is the party with the Mad Hatter and March Hare. Disney must…
Grating as fuck.
Is creativity with no purpose or direction creativity at all? That is in fact the question that kept resonating through my mind throughout the viewing. There is simultaneously too much and nothing going on at any given point of this film. Quite the accomplishment.
The film is basically an endless parade (even at 75 minutes) of weird characters and situations. The problem lies in the fact that neither the characters nor the situations are involving in the least. I guess you could say that a film that is constantly trying to be weird and different is devoid of character. Ironic or not, it makes for a pretty boring watch.
As for the story (or lack thereof), there…
Alice in Wonderland is not as good as I remembered it to be. The story is weak and although there are some interesting characters, most of them are kinda forgettable. The animation is great as it always is in Disney movies, but I'm afraid that looks are the only thing that this movie has.
outro clássico disney que marcou minha infância; animação que toda a vez que eu assisto fico com mais dúvidas e certamente é isso que faz o mesmo tãããão especial.
Used to watch this all the time as a young lad, it was very nostalgic to see it again. It's a fun kids film with wacky characters and a theme of progressing into adulthood.
The colors. The colors. Oh my gosh, the color scheme. And the candy-like colors.
You can tell I really like this movie because of the colors. I mean, who wants an animated movie with a drab color scheme?? Alice is one of my favorites just because of this, I mean, alongside the fact that it has cute music numbers and fun characters.
But the colors.
A gateway to imagination
My first exposure to the side effects of heavy drug use. I was like four.
I actually can't imagine dropping acid and then watching this movie. Wait, maybe I can. My heart would probably explode and I'd die.
Probably my favorite childhood film, or Disney animated movie for that matter.
While maybe a bit more dense in its weirdness than previous Disney films, no one part felt any weirder than things I had seen in earlier entries. Alice seems unperturbed by it all the same, only focused on her hot pursuit of a rabbit with a large pocket watch.
CHRONOLOGICAL WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS-A-THON (or at least the ones I own or can easily access, anyway!) FILM #13:
A truly strange and great little movie. It doesn't have a lot going on, but that's part of what makes it work so well. What it lacks in plot (and hey, we've seen what can happen to this story when too much plot is added) it more than makes up for with character and atmosphere. Almost more an experience than a story.
In this film we follow a little whiner who thinks she's smarter than everybody as she meets a series of increasingly more bizarre, threatening and obfuscating lunatics and assholes. It goes on this way for about seventy minutes until it paints itself into a corner that it can't get out of and then it just kind of ends with the most classic of cop outs. I can't imagine it any other way.
Alice in Wonderland is part of my childhood. It's one of a bunch of movies that I had on VHS that I would watch over and over again with my sister. The visuals are fun and trippy and weird. The characters are all so outrageous and memorable. Nothing really makes sense but it's not supposed to!
Most everyone's mad here. *maniacal laughter*
The story is classic, the animation looks good, but sometimes it just strays off into a random area. Just wierd.
