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.
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…
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…
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.
Pure nonsense but I always enjoy it. I've had a great unbirthday.
Con #Alicenelpaesedellemeraviglie la Disney compie l'impossibile. Una delle poche volte in cui poter usare "visionario" con ottime ragioni.
Top 5 favorite movies.
One from Disney's classic line.
As crazy, psychedelic, surreal, fucked up and confusing as this film seems to be, it's a pretty simple one. In short, the moral of this story is: don't be an asshole. The purpose of the narrative is then an argument towards, or a breakdown of, how people end up being just that - a major asshole. To get into this... more from:

Is this even a children's story? I can't wait to share this with my daughter, although I'm really not sure how to explain what a hookah is...
