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…

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…
This is the definitive Alice in Wonderland for me and will never be topped.
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.
Disney at its most brilliantly bonkers.
A Review Haiku
So you’re late, you say?
A very important date?
With your dealer, right?
One of my favorite films as a young kid.
Visually captivating and full of whimsical charm, though some characters are obnoxiously grating and drag the film down substantially.
Essa é uma daquelas animações clássicas que apesar de teoricamente eu nunca ter assistido inteira, com certeza já fazia parte de alguma forma da minha imaginação.
A transposição para blu-ray ficou maravilhosa, as cores ficaram muito bonitas. O visual dessas animações antigas é muito legal.
O nome deveria ser a viagem de ácido de Alice porque o negócio é muito psicodélico e surreal. Imagino que as crianças da época devem ter viajado bastante (risos).
E sim, o negócio é bem divertido, mas é bem doidinho também.
4 out of 5 (B+)
Before Disney Animation got too sketchy, Alice in Wonderland is one of the most imaginative worlds, thanks to the mind of Lewis Carroll. Keeping true to the text, but also making it very DISNEY, the animators adapt what could have been unadaptable.
The weird dream structure of the film, which has since become cliche, is still quite the adventure.
It also happens to terrify my wife to this day.
I couldn't get this one out of my head so I had to take a second pass at it with audio commentary. I liked it even more the second time around. www.ifitfitz.com/365/alice-in-wonderland
Pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this film. I talk more about why here: www.ifitfitz.com/365/alice-in-wonderland
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
