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.
i havent watched this in over 20 years and now that im an adult i have came to realize that alice is nothing but an ignorant whiny little brat.
Disney classic, you follow Alice into wonderland a place like no other, were see follows a white rabbit and meets strange and wonderful characters on her way. Fun adventure for all the family.
A masterpiece. The way Alice's character progresses is great, the story is fun and imaginative, and the Blu Ray restoration is outstanding. Loved it as a kid and love it now!
The insane creativity on display here is staggeringly impressive. The artistic talent and wild palette make this movie a whole different beast to any other Disney animation. It has a handful of solid songs and memorable moments but the story suffers from being a bunch of little anecdotes strung together to form a whole narrative. I know that's the point but I don't think the through-line is strong enough.

This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Completely and utterly bonkers. In some ways this is great. In fact a lot of ways. It's inventive and funny. The dialog is sparkling, some of the voice casting is unique and fascinating, most of the characters are brilliant. The only thing that doesn't work so well, other than the old fashioned score and commonly unimpressive songs, is the overall sense of narrative. The flow is up and down, from one great situation followed by a lacklustre one. So I went back and forth on how much I was enjoying it, but the highs are very high. And I think it got stronger towards the end, putting it just outside my Disney Top 5.
It really is a…
Beautiful Disney film that is trippy and almost scary at time.
Esta era una de las películas de Disney que menos recordaba (a pesar de que tiene bastantes momentos memorables), y no esperaba disfrutarla tanto.
Bendita locura y benditos personajes, que apenas te dan un respiro para descansar en toda la película, y menos para aburrirte.
The color in this film is practically another character, with numerous characters that tilt towards alarming rather than quirky.
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
A blend of personal favorites and films that I consider to be the "greatest." Top two-hundred is definitive. Only 1940-2015.
