Lack of Updates

I apologize for not updating in some time. March and April are generally months that I don't watch many new films in simply because they are usually not worth watching. Also, with mountains of school work I don't get a lot of time to see the films that look bad but I still want to see. I will be preoccupied with work and school-work until late April at which point, I will begin to watch movies again. Thank you to those of you who read my reviews. Bear with me as a focus my time on important assignments for school and such. I am looking forward to reviving this blog in May for all the highly anticipated films of the summer!!

Alice in Wonderland in Disney Digital 3D

19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.

My Review: Alice in Wonderland was an overall catastrophe. The story was nothing more than snippets of the original mixed with Tim Burton. Lately his films have been less than pleasing. With Johnny Depp being such a unique actor, I was expecting him to bring something to the table. I was extremely disappointed. I usually praise acting in many of the films I review but sadly, this was just $150 million thrown down the rabbit hole-literally. Johnny Depp in this role reminded me of his work in the Willy Wonka remake. He was awkward and pale. Anne Hathaway was pathetic at attempting an English accent. It is very unlike her to take a role that doesn't show her as the vulnerable girl that finds her way. The one thing this film had plenty of was graphics! The scenery and tone of the film fit to the characters stories. Much like Avatar, Alice in Wonderland was a hyped film that turned out to be a disappointment. It still won't stop it from grossing hundreds of millions. 1 and a half out of 4 stars.
