I paid to see that piece of shiat.

This sequel makes about as much sense as "The Whole Ten Yards" or "Another Stakeout."

It was visually interesting, but the pacing was bad and just drug on and on.

I wanted to see the video game adapted but I guess they sort of snagged that concept up with Sucker Punch.

I finally saw it last weekend when we recorded it off of the Disney channel for the kids. I don't think it's by any means a classic, but it was enjoyable enough.

I liked the movie. But then again it had Johnny depp in a kit with an occasional Scottish accent so....

I have such a weakness for Scotsmen I probably shouldn't even admit it online.
 
2012-12-10 04:01:13 PM
The first half was pretty good, but it fell apart in the second half. Like so much in life.

If Alice II: Looking Glass Boogaloo has Stephen Fry as Chessur again, I'll go see it.

Ha! I waited for RedBox, so I was only out a buck and some change.

Overall, not a horrible movie, until the stupid Johnny Depp CGI dance at the end.

I loved the Cheshire Cat so much in that movie I can barely remember the rest of it. Especially the bit where he started kneading the hat. I'd love to have a floating blue cat with the voice of Fry hanging about.

I'd rather they made a sequel to Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Comedy.

It was mostly crap, but I got to ogle the lovely Mia Whatshernamechowski for most of 2 hours and scored some points with the GF for being willing to go see it. So win/win for me.

It was OK. The CGI was fine, but as a whole, it was just OK. I don't have anything against it, but I wouldn't see the sequel. Sorry Disney, go make your new Star Wars movies really good.

According to reviews, kind of a "love it or hate it" kind of thing. The consensus is that it's not near as good as Tin Man, however. I never saw it. Loved Tin Man tho.

2012-12-10 04:40:11 PM
I enjoyed it.

But then again, Jabberwocky is one of the few poems that exist that I actually like...1 And I played a MUD back in the early 2000's which shamelessly stole from Carol's work for monsters... And I tend to enjoy Johnny Depp's performances.

As long as they don't Pirates it to death a second isn't necessarily bad from my view.

Enjoyed it, passing on the sequel.

I liked the Danny Elfman music that plays on my listed pandora channel. Danny Elfman should stay away from Star Wars tho. Family Guy was right on that.

That looks like a properly formed sentence, but it doesn't make any sense. The last time I said "SyFy Original Picture" in an airport I got cavity searched. And I deserved it. I know better than to joke about bombs there.

Exactly. I didn't expect it to be a masterpiece, but it was more entertaining than expected from the now tiresome Burton/Depp/Bonham Carter collaborations.
 
2012-12-10 04:57:53 PM
Hated it the first time I saw it. Liked it much more the second go-'round. Now that I've seen it four or five times, I'm actually quite fond of it. Not for the scale and all the cg claptrap, but for the lovely subversiveness of it all. I adore the fact that the Hatter goes all Scottish brogue when he gets reaaaally mad. It's the little things in that movie that are kind of awesome.

Sequel? nah.

I like the SFX but fark, Tim Burton just Burtoned it up badly. Plus, didn't they end it on a non sequel route? Then again, Friday the 13th was supposed to end with part 4.

I don't know about a "non-sequel" ending. Sure, she left Underland, but there's nothing to say she can't come back again. They could pick up right where the first one left off... the ship gets caught in a storm and she rabbit-holes to get away. She has some adventures in Underland, then makes it back out in time to be rescued (or just comes out at her destination).

I would love to know what was going through Kristine De Bell's mind when she made that movie. Was she thinking about a career in porn and then disappointingly decided against it?

Such an amazing little babe she was.

I kind of got the feeling that Tim Burton's source for the whole thing was the Tom Petty video "Don't Come Around Here No More"
 
2012-12-10 08:56:29 PM
Burton's a hit or miss with me... maybe, when I feel generous, he gets one out of five films right... the rest seem to work too hard and then fail to make a point worth the effort. Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Big Fish... I would rewatch without hesitation. AiW was the last one I bothered to watch. If the newer ones come on satellite, I might check 'em out. Yeah, I'm old. He makes films for people younger than me. I'm happy that he's made four films I like. He might have been cool with Maleficent.
 
2012-12-10 08:57:41 PM
It was good but I wouldn't go around telling everyone to rush out and see it. There was a lot of room for improvement.
 
2012-12-10 09:26:19 PM
I think "Alice in Wonderland II" is more properly called "Through the Looking Glass", yes?

texdent: RatMaster999: It was ok...the only part that really just annoyed me was the stupid dance bit at the end.

Yes, whether or not he did the dance was a plot point. They hinted at how "good" the dance was several times over the movie.

BUT, if you're going to foreshadow this supposedly awesome dance, maybe the dance should actually be, I dunno... at least semi-decent? Maybe the music for the dance should sound like it was played on something other than a $20 MIDI keyboard, perhaps in a tone and style that more closely matches the music in the actual movie.

That short sequence just bugs me. I liked everything else about the movie, until the point where we got 90's video game music and a crappy CGI dance.
 
2012-12-10 10:40:27 PM
It was all right, except for the contrived feminist ending.

I cynically think the sequel will go the way of Grease 2: any substance will be steamrolled by the eagerness to please.

I saw it in IMAX 3d where I promptly fell asleep 30 minutes in.
I then tried to give it a fair shake on a repeated viewing some months later.
Oh, how I envied my first trip through Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.
Please, Disney. Let it die.

I agree. I saw that version at a drive in in the early 80's. And the reason she left pron? Meatballs with Bill Murray.
 
2012-12-11 03:46:25 PM
there is only one alice in wonderland project yet to be done and it will easily be the best ever:
- it is a rock opera staring Surge from System of a Down and Buckethead
-it is all trippy and when you sit in your theater seat you are stuck with high power lsd
-Milla jovovich plays Alice
 
2012-12-11 11:20:04 PM
Okay, so the original Alice was actually the first Alice in Wonderland book. The "remake" was actually Through the Looking Glass, the sequel. Both of those had plenty of book source material.

There weren't any more books after that. So, this movie will probably suck.

/liked the movie, despite the usual Burton elements
//agreed that John Carter kicked ass...
