Remember when “Alice In Wonderland” was about a girl who ate little pieces of bread and grew to be LARGE or tiny?
This isn’t your mothers “Alice In Wonderland.”
This is Tim Burton’s Wonderland…and I think we all know what that means.
While I love some Burton movies (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands–classic!) most tend to lean on the acid-trip side of things. (Think Sweeney Todd–which, I couldn’t even finish.)
I’m intrigued with this version because the storyline is very different. It literally is NOT your mothers Alice.
Alice, now 19 and unbeknownst to her, is about to be proposed to at a high-society tea. Freaked out, like any young girl might be, she runs off to follow a white rabbit, like most 19 year old girls would not. She falls down the rabbit hole and returns to Wonderland 10 years later…but with no recollection of having been there before.
Seriously, WHAT is in those loaves of bread??
In the end, she finds it is her job to slay the Jabberwocky and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror over Wonderland.
Sounds snuggly, right? I’m not totally sold on this yet and really haven’t made up my mind on whether to spend the chunk of quarters I’ve been putting away for a rainy day on this or not. The costumes and quirkiness are always delivered.
But the real question is:
Will I have crazy-clown nightmares??
Honestly…what are these people eating?
