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)
This is the definitive Alice in Wonderland for me and will never be topped.
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…
The Good: Incredible animation. Imagery is gorgeous, colorful, imaginative, surreal, and magical. Love the characters, the dialogue, and the story (even if it's mostly just nonsense).
The Bad: None.
The Bottom Line: A very underrated and underappreciated Disney classic. Highly recommended.
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…
Part 13 of "When you wish upon a star..." RANKING THE WALT DISNEY ANIMATED CLASSICS
Alice in Wonderland is probably the most trippiest animated kids movie to ever make it to the big screen... and this was 1951! We join Alice, bored with her studies, as she falls down the rabbit hole and journeys through the extremely odd and confusing Wonderland.... You have to give Disney credit for going all out on this one.... I mean, compare this to a movie like Bambi or The Little Mermaid and this seems like the deranged cousin of the lot!
What's wrong with this movie in 2016?
Everything!!! Magic Mushrooms, hallucinations, a complete nut-job in the Mad Hatter... a total drug induced ride into a magical world of odd creatures and where everything talks.... Theres no way a movie like this would ever be made today.... you gotta love the 50's!!!
"i give myself very good advice, but i very seldom follow it!"
I'm a DUMBO ride-or-die guy, but holy SHIT is ALICE IN WONDERLAND incredible. What I was most struck by was the complete stream-of-consciousness of the whole thing. I haven't read Carroll's book (or watched this) since I was a kid so I forget exactly how it moves forward, but this forgoes a lot of his riddles and games for wild tumbles into visual gimmicks and violence. The one flaw is that Alice herself is so boring, and that this whole fantasia is wrapped up into an idle daydream - but that might be the point, after all: dreams are dreams, operating without logic but still with stakes.
Why does Alice look like she's about 11 or 12 or something? She's supposed to be seven in the book and here, though this is common in Alice in Wonderland adaptations for Alice to look like a preteen or a teenager but she looks like a pre-teen and therefore, acts more mature.
I don't know if this was relevant in the book but I found Alice to be too feisty, like the typical pre-teen disrespectfulness, though it may have something to do with her boredom, imagination, and desire for adventure.
The character design for Alice is cute but her voice acting didn't sound English enough, she's supposed to be an English girl but if it sounds too English, it would…
Nice poster choice for this movie. What a great way to reintroduce this movie in the 60's and 70's. Anyway, the book doesn't exactly follow the original Lewis Carrol book, but it doesn't have to. If anything, this movie is a great way to introduce kids into the strangeness that the book represents to the young adults later on down the line. If this turns out to be the only version you like, it wouldn't surprise me. I thought the original version of the book creeped me out as well.
This is and always will be the definitive version of Alice in Wonderland. It's loyal to its source material and perfectly blends animation, story, characters and music. It really brings the book to life and retains the eccentric tone of the books. The script is very clever and funny as well as each character being well realized through design and voice acting. Alice is a brilliant heroine - naive but charming and sweet with an endearing curiosity. The animation is beautiful and using Mary Blair as an artistic influence really worked for the style of the movie. And the soundtrack is amazing - the score has a distinctive wackiness to it as well as the songs being so well performed…
