Alice In Wonderland

Okay i have been wanting to see this movie for so long, around a year i think. For a long time i had been trying to get my family interested in it, and finally when the trailer came out they were excited. Well i LOVE the book and i LOVE the story by Lewis Carroll, he is just so brilliant and ahead of his time. I always loved the characters they are just so goofy and nonsense really. (Well i do think that was what he wanted them to be.) Well the movie very much surpassed my expectations! I am very enthused and i just loved this movie. Loved Loved Loved it! You must see it. Tim Burton does more of a darker view into story's and this movie was just fantasic. He sure does like doing movies with Johnny Depp. It is very loosely based on the books, with nothing in common but just a few story lines and all the characters, but i really loved how they created the plot and a different wonderland. I try not to judge a movie on its book, because they are two totally different story's being told by different people. (unless of course the movie is directed by the writer of the book) The acting was great, Alice was wonderful and i loved the Red queen and white queen, and the mad Hatter. They were just so funny and the graphics were so cool. Wonderland looks amazing!! One place i wouldn't mind living in. Well i just wanted to share what i thought of the movie and to maybe excite some other viewers.
