The plotline along the lines of this;
The story line was a decent adaptation of the book, but it missed out some of my favorite characters like the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon. I also missed allot of the original poetry including "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "'Tis the Voice of the Lobster".
Tim Burton's vision for Alice in wonderland is sublime vision and set as is all of his films. I Had the luck of seeing it in 3D, and for anyone wishing to see it (which although its faults I encourage you too! (maybe because I'm such an Alice in wonderland nerd)) is the best way to watch it. The 3D effects added a whole new realm to the story making it so believable and at the same time unreal, the same feeling you get whilst reading the books.
I think the main problem with the movie was that it seemed like Burton couldn't decide whether to make it a children's movie or an adults. A technique which normally plays into Burton's movies (such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride etc) didn't hit the spot right. The performances were good, with Helena Bonham Carter stealing the show as always, as well as Johnny Depp adding his cuckoo side (applied in Charlie in the Chocolate Factory) and notable mentions to Stephen Fry, Matt Lucas and Alan Rickman.
Despite the ill reviews I heard, I still fell in love with the world of wonderland all over again from the moment I sat down in the cinema. My eyes gleamed like a child once more.
and isn't that what's really important?
P.S although Carrol never wrote an answer to the riddle here's some:
-Because the notes for which they are noted are not noted for being musical notes.-Because Poe wrote on both. -Because it slopes with a flap.
-Because they both come with inky quills.
-Because they both stand on sticks
-Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front!”( In the original preface, “never” was spelled “nevar,” which is “raven” backwards)
-Because one is a rest for pens, the other is a pest for wrens
-Because Both are inked with blackness
My favorite one is:
-Because there is a B in both and an N in neither. (get it?)
