Just wanted to update with a huge apologies for the lack of updates.I could not even
I know that the movie only open in the US today,however for us,in Portugal,it came out a day earlier, which was a great surprise,because it's something that rarely or never happens.
Of course as a good Burton and Alice fan i went to see it straight away,i had to. Now, i'm here with a review.
I have been reading the most different things around, the the worst and best reviews from this movie. I gotta be honest,this is not a children movie or something that everyone will appreciate, it's a Tim Burton movie,not something hugely comercial and you have to pay attention to all the details to get the best out of this film, so i understand that not all reviews talk wonders of this movie.
In my opinion, this is a great movie, i loved it, the scenarios and clothing design are two of the greatest things about the entire thing. The special effects are good,not something from the other world but we have to understand that this is something that is very like Burton, he doesn't go for effects as the ones you see in Avatar, this ones are much more dream like, you have to use your head and recall your craziest dreams to appreciate the kind of effects that are used.
One thing that make me love this movie and its something not so usual in most of his films, is the very light side of Wonderland. Of course i know the man go for extremes, but it was good to see so much white, light but still magnificent. Some parts from the movie, on the 'white side' of Wonderland reminded me of the Rivendell in Lord of the Rings.
