I went this past week to see the new version of Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton. I was super-excited to see it because I love Tim Burton as well as most of the cast (Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Alan Rickman and Anne Hathaway). I came away from the movie thinking that it was good but not quite as , to quote my son, “magical”. My younger kids absolutely loved it and were blown away by many of the scenes. I would still go and see it again and do recommend it to everyone, I just think I set the bar too high in regards to my expectations.
What are your thoughts?
