On TV, it'll look like any other movie. It needs the big screen and the high-techy stuff to work. It is a fun movie, and that's all it's meant to be.

The Jabberwock was scary. I loved hearing Alan Rickman's unmistakable voice coming out of the mouth of a smoking caterpillar. The mingling of live actors and computer-generated characters was the most seamless I've seen. A great movie, no. Fun? Oh yeah!

I was a little disappointed. It was clever, and it was fun, but I expected it to be more fun. It looked to me as if the movie was made in haste. I enjoyed what I did see, but it could have been so much more.

Yep, you've got a point, Austin. It could have used more time in the planning. In a rush to cash in on the Avatar bandwagon? I suspect Alice will be remembered more for its moments than its total impact. Such as the White Queen's wafting arm movements. Or the fact that grown-up Alice's fiancé manqué and the Mad Hatter have identical hair color -- which means absolutely nothing, ha.

There is one bit that's been nagging at me. Remember the scene in which the diminished Alice climbs up on the back of the computer-generated dog? She starts at the nose, climbs up over his head, then turns around just past his shoulder. I've seen that before. Some other movie...a live-action girl climbing nose-first over not a computerized dog, but a polar bear. What was that movie?!? Aargh.

Oh, I think I remember you talking about that movie. You posted a picture of the girl and the polar bear. But I don't remember the title.

I went to see that movie, but I don't remember the title either.

I just got back from Alice and I have to agree with Austin...

I'll probably have other comments after I've mulled it over, but I don't think it lived up to its hype. And I didn't think the 3d added that much, Andrew...so feel free to wait.
