The new Alice in Wonderland… a feast for the eyes?
The truth is, It’s all about ENTERTAINMENT!!! It’s certainly not a particularly strong script, but having the acting genius of Johnny Depp helps to make up for what is lacking in the writing. Viewing Alice (now 13 years older), I kept having to remind myself that the film is just an extension of Lewis Carroll’s novel. Tim Burton turned Carroll’s wonderful Alice into a fantasy epic, using amazing special affects. Certainly an entertainment for the senses, and an appeal to those who delight in the far out. What an adventure–Alice in a new kind of la-la-land wonderment! It is certain that Disney Studio’s are pleased with the $116 million dollar opening weekend. I guess it could be worse!
