Got to see the movie this evening, courtesy of my family.
Certainly it was better than the reviews I have read. Tim Burton isn’t my favourite directory, I don’t think it’s one of my favourite movies. I’m not a big quirky movie person really. But it was good. The 3Dness was cool, and used well. Not gimmicky, but still fun.
The plot was… well I can’t remember the book. But maybe that’s for the better. Cause I enjoyed the twists and turns. I enjoyed the characters developing throughout the movie. Well Alice in particular I guess, the other characters were more or less the same throughout. Slightly creepy and detached, but also friendly. But yes. I found the movie to be pretty original, well thought out. Quirky and enjoyable. Not my thing, but surprisingly cute even though it was quirky and often dark in atmosphere.
It was good to see some familiar faces, or at least hear some familiar voices. There’s the obvious ones like Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway. But there was also the guy who plays George McFly in the Back to the Future movies, can’t remember his name. I really liked how Alice was portrayed.
Anyway, that’s some disjointed thoughts. Good movie worth seeing at the cinema :) Oh and the dance at the end rocked :)
