Alice In Wonderland

In this adaptation of Lewis Carroll's work, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is now 19 years old and returning to her former friends and adventure. Parents may also want to wait until their little ones are a bit more grown-up before venturing into this version of Wonderland (envisioned by Director Tim Burton). Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

I found this review helpful and agree that younger children (ie. my 8 year old) might be disturbed by some of the cartoon “violence” or the scary Jabberwocky. The film editing was a little sloppy but overall this is a very well made film.

The make-up, wardrobe, and size-changes alone (Alice is as big as a house, then small enough to fit inside of a teapot) will enchant kids of most ages. There is literally so much to see in the movie, that kids could watch the movie twenty times before all of the fine details were noted.

For that reason, I’ll definitely be checking out the DVD, which comes out on June 1. has it available now for pre-order and are offering a $5 rebate and free movie poster for anyone who places their order early. 

For parents of younger viewers, though, be aware that the stunning sights of the film also include dramatic be-headings, wayward eyeballs, and Jabberwocky blood, making it all quite intense for most younger viewers.

The inspiring message to young people who can handle the visuals is that they can make their own decisions, do what is right without fear, and make the impossible possible.

Stirring message aside, I would recommend telling younger viewers about Tim Burton?s strong and bold Alice, but showing them Disney?s animated version of the film. For older kids and adults of all ages, rest assured Tim Burton?s Alice in Wonderland is a treat for the eyes, a trip for the imagination, and far more than just an adaptation of a children?s classic.

Agreed with the above reviews. I saw the film and loved it. glad I didn’t have my younger grandkids watch it…but everyone else loved it!

I loved this movie, as did my family. They loved the adventure and fantasy, and enjoyed more than the original animated variation.
