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)

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.
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.
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…
It is sad for me to say this, particularly after seeing this at least a score in my childhood and being absorbed by everything on the screen, but it mostly fails the adult viewer test. A Disney classic if you are a child, psychedelically inclined or mad for all things Alice, but the breakneck pace, ordinary animation quality and lack of real heart or narrative was far more apparent than I remembered it being. There are some wonderful set-pieces that still deliver in spades (or hearts), but as a complete package Alice in Wonderland proved to be a dispiriting revisit. At times it reminded me more of Looney Tunes than Disney. That said, it was interesting this time round to observe the Wonderland adventure as a madcap mirror of contemporary British life. The kids will love it, but adult viewers would do best to leave their memories of this untampered.
Purposefully offbeat & quirky sums up this classic. Outrageous visuals make for an engaging story, even if it lacks a cohesive narrative.
A fun children's story with a really quick pace which is aided by its hour-and-fifteen-minute run-time. I watched this movie at two in the morning and was on the verge of falling asleep the entire time, but I didn't because it held my interest, and that says a lot for a movie for children.
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 film is complete nonsense but for that it's a masterpiece. Bright and colourful animation, fun music and a creepy overtone makes this one of my favourite Disney films!
A classic whimsical Disney adventure, Alice in Wonderland oozes with charm, and a few memorable songs. A nice movie to just unwind with, Alice still holds up more than 50 years later.
Man I wish I still smoked weed.
Poor old Bill.
Another missing piece of my Disney animated puzzle...I can't believe I'd never watched this before.
It feels like a big stoner film and that's not really my thing. Some neat ideas and I can definitely appreciate its originality and revolutionary creativity for its time.
Honestly, I wasn't a fan. Maybe I was just in a bad mood, but I didn't really enjoy it. I'm glad I got to cross it off my list, though.
Sort of disappointing after the string of early great animated features from Disney. The animation quality is noticeably lower and the cheesy music (except "Unbirthday") clashes quite a bit with the Carroll's oddball material.
