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)
This is the definitive Alice in Wonderland for me and will never be topped.
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.
Think about watching the Pink Elephants scene from "Dumbo" for a full 90 minutes, and you will begin to imagine what this drug trip of a movie is all about. It's absolutely bizarre, and not all of it works -- Especially the songs. But it gets it right more often than not, capturing the zany spirit of the two Lewis Carroll novels and bringing them to vivid life. Plus, it's really quite funny.
I sure do miss Humpty Dumpty, though. He's one of my favorite characters in either of the novels.

Another Disney film from my childhood that really holds up very well. As a child, this feels like one of your most fun dreams to ever come true and when you grow up, it can be that and similar to a strange drug trip, especially if you're taught in school that Lewis Carol was probably on cocaine when he wrote this. This film is full of imagination, wit, and creativity. The animation is stunning and surreal too look at all. Wonderland itself just looks amazing. Wide in landscape, colorful on the surface, and just full of imagination. I loved pretty much all of the characters from Alice to the cat to the Mad Hatter, etc,, but…
A string of wonderfully weird scenarios animated colourfully and restored with care. Disney's Alice in Wonderland is a psychedelic escape into a wacky world where both adults and children can get swept away from the real world and meet a host of great classic characters as Alice navigates the labyrinth of Lewis Carroll's creation. One of my favourite Disney films for its madness and it's step out of the ordinary.
My favorite Disney animated film!
Alice's adventure are inspiring, genious and wonderful. Every little detail is served perfectly, every single magical character is so unique. Probably the smartest kids' story ever written!
I just adore it!
Trippy as fuck. I don’t know… this put me in a really weird headspace and I was pretty freaked out for a while there. Groovy animation, but most of the characters are pretty sinister and unpleasant to watch.
There's a part of the film right after Alice sips the "Drink me" potion, and the talking doorknob says to her, "Oh, I forgot to tell you, I'm locked!"
"Oh no!" exclaims Alice, and as she puts her hand to her face and brings it upwards to her forehead, her nose actually crinkles, like your nose would if you bent the cartilage up with your hand. Finally, Disney has started putting realistic movement into the faces of its female protagonists.
Still one of the company's most creative films to date, this is going on my "must rewatch 100 more times to get everything" list. There's so much detail in the character designs, the animations, the jokes, the way the songs…
My penis voted it.
Movie a Day - Day 51
I had seen Alice in Wonderland before, but it was never one of my favorites, and this most recent rewatch did nothing to change my mind. It's too plotless and episodic, and everyone is a little too mean and/or frustrating, especially Alice. The animation is good, and there are definitely good moments, but the whole isn't equal to the sum of its parts.
Silly and absolutely insane. A little too much for my taste.
I rewatched this Disney classic for our "Micro Focus" segment on Subject:CINEMA, and I have to say, it's still just as annoying and bothersome as every other time I've ever seen it. Not true to just Wonderland but also throwing part of Through The Looking Glass into it, some of the characterizations are really creepy, and I find it surprising that Walt Disney would think this film was good for small children. Not the best adaptation of the classic work, but not the worst either.
Alice = Queen of Sass
i still catch myself singing "in the month of may"
