We went to Alice in Wonderland starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter last weekend. We watched it in 3D. It was quite the flick!! Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, certainly adds another role to his list of zany characters.
So Alice has returned to wonderland as a teenager and had thought that her previous visit was a crazy dream. She is shocked to find out that it was real and that these ... people... are also real. The Red Queen with her HUGE head. The cat that appears at random from the thin air. All of them.
Anne Hathaway's portrayal as the White Queen, deposed by her sister the Red Queen, was not so great. She seems almost naively passive despite the plot to return to the throne.
My favorite scene, of course, was when the Hatter was fitting the Red Queen, with her ENORMOUS head with a variety of hats. Alas the scene was too short... ironically considering he was the Hatter, you would think that he would wear a different hat from time to time...
