You've Got The Wrong Alice!

The wonderful Alice In Wonderland! This film holds magic, fantasy and beauty all at once. A film that makes you believe in yourself again!
The films starts off with Alice Kingsleigh as a child occurring bad dreams, while her father comforts Alice telling  " You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are" I love this quote. This one will stick with me for a very long time! another one I'll take to the grave! lol  Well, back to the story.

Now Alice Kingsleigh is all grow up, nineteen-year-old, and on the verge of a unwanted marriage proposal.   Alice sees a rabbit in a waistcoat that captures her attention. She thinks she gone mad! Finally, Alice falls into a large rabbit hole, Alice lands into a world called Underland! Now Alice has gone completely   Bonkers! lol.

Alice is confused! but does not seem to be afraid of where she has landed, because she thinks it is merely a dream. Soon, Alice is greeted by the White Rabbit, Dormouse, The Dodo, Tweedledum & Tweedledee. Everyone thinks they have gotten the wrong Alice. The Caterpillar foretells the story of a Alice slaying Jabberwocky, while the group is still debating if this is even the real Alice, Alice believes that it's just all a dream, and everyone is not real.  The group is suddenly ambushed by Bandersnatch. Everyone seem to get captured except Alice, Tweedledum & Tweedledee, but this changes quickly. Tweedledum & Tweedledee are found and taken The Red Queen"
Alice Kingsley is once again lost!

We also get glimpse of The Red Queen and how cruel she is. "Off with their heads" is her main quote.

Finally, Alice is found by Cheshire Cat who directs her to March Hare &,  Mad Hatter. Mad Hatter soon tells Alice of all the wrong doing of  The Red Queen.  Soon The knave Of Hearts Figures out Alice is back, and is on her trail. Mad Hatter helps Alice avoid being captured. Alice is soon discovered by Bayard who wishes to take her to The White Queen.

Alice has other plans, she wants to help Mad Hatter who has been captured and is taken to The Red Queen.

Bayard takes Alice to The Red Queen. The Red Queen takes Alice into her castle, unaware who she really is. Alice soon figures out there is only one weapon that can kill the Jabberwocky,  but it is hidden in the Bandersnatch den. She retrieves the weapon by kindness.

After The Knave Of Hearts desperately try to attempt to seduce Alice, but was turned down quickly, and now is seeking revenge. The Knave Of Hearts attempts to arrest Alice for seduction, but soon sees Alice with the sword. And soon figures out she is Alice. Alice miraculously escape to The White Queen from the help from the Bandersnatch.

Alice soon understand the danger of having to face the Jabberwocky. And, retreats that this is all a dream. Absolem reminds Alice of the past visits to Underland which she called Wonderland. This gives Alice the courage to stand up to the Jabberwocky alone, which she feared.

Frabjous Day is here. Alice wins. The Red Queen is overthrown by The White Queen.

Alice gets one wish from the Jabberwocky blood. Alice wishes to return to home, but promises to return to Wonderland. Alice finds her strength and finally admits to not wanting to marry Amish Ascot, and wants to expand her ventures in trade routes to China. As, the story ends you see Absolem as a butterfly, but soon he flies away.

This film is magically beautiful, courageous, and heartfelt. This film is so artistic it should be seen by designer & all artist's. The graphics are amazing, and the costumes are prefect. Amazing family movie. It's a must see! Helena Bonham Carter was amazing! She was the biggest highlight in this film! very great acting. Johnny Depp also was amazing, but he's always great in films.
