Alice in Adventure Land ( Alice in Wonderland 3d)

The most talked about movie, Alice in Wonderland hit the big screen that surprise the world the great comeback of the incredible duo Tim Burton and Johnny Depp.  Of course, who would ever forget the delicious movie Charlie and the chocolate factory?  Both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp work in that movie.  But enough of it, Alice in Wonderland became a big hit that turns our head at the sights of the movie poster.  Now, to be sure, who watched Alice in Wondeland?  I’m sure everyone watches it.  Who wouldn’t?  Now, we are all dying to watch who would play Alice and the great effect of how Tim Burton creates Alice in Wonderland his own way.  But, we are also dying to know how Johnny Depp could pull off a trick as he starred as The Mad Hatter.  We all know Johnny Depp can pull any characters given to him.  Be that crazy, victimized, drunk or tortured, he could pull off anything!  Remember Charlie and the chocolate factory?  Now that’s the movie I simply enjoy.  But that’s only second to the coolest, swashbuckling, pirate Captain Jack Sparrow.  Not only he can yield a sword but he can handle a sword even if he is drunk.   Let us go back to the story Alice in Wonderland.  We always know that the story begins with Alice following a peculiar rabbit, which wears a dress shirt and carry a watch, and she falls down the rabbit hole.  And the story goes on and on and on.  But what we didn’t expect is the twist of the story where it is far from our own version of Alice in Wonderland.  Of course, Disney has its way of making Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland into a cartoon.  We all know that Alice ( Disney’s Alice)  is a girl who is so mischievous, curious that she sometimes gets into trouble.  All little girls do, including me.  But what makes Alice different is that she is girl who is surrounded by all things different from he and all tings who doesn’t exist in the real world.  But in Wonderland, she is the one who is different.  Confusing?  I know.  It’s hard to understand something confusing.  Anyway, that’s out version of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.

What about Tim Burton’s version?  It’s still the same like the book or Disney but with more flair, action, and a much added thrill to the fantasy.  What I really admired about the movie is that Tim Burtons really know how to tell a story.  Of course, it has values in it and a strong sense of self that the character possesses.  It’s rare to see a woman possess a feministic allure that can be used for a battle.  In this story, even though Alice knew that the world she steps in is far from reality and all things are fantasy or something doesn’t exist, she keeps her mind as realistic as possible.  She doesn’t know how she came to be in that place where weirdness can describe a thing, but it doesn’t scare her.  She faced a situation where she knows that her humaneness is the only thing that keeps her sane.  That despite that she could never understand the thing happening around them, she still facet like she face a problem, head-on and gear-up.  Even if she is in the fantasy world, her realistic views keep her motivated to finish something that was never hers to begin with. Now that’s what I call real woman. (I’m a feminist; I believe that a woman can do anything a man can do!)

Of course, every one of us watched the movie and I say I enjoyed it.  It’s not every year Tim Burton can create a great movie.  But what is cool is that Alice in Wonderland gives us, especially women, something we can fight for.  Not brute or power but something a woman possesses as she is faced with a difficult situation.

It gives great pleasure that a movie directed by Tim Burton can hit the audience with great impact.  Maybe it’s just me but what can I say about the movie.  Like I said, “Two Thumbs Up!”  of course, some would be disappointed and some would complain.  I won’t!  Alice in Wonderland teaches me more than just a movie itself.  It teaches me that sometimes, a certain situation can happen wherever you are.  That sometimes you have to face a problem head on.  Even if you’re not Alice who went to the Wonderland and fight the queen, we can be Alice in our surreal world of impossibility.

Sometimes, it’s nice if we could read Lewiss Carrol’s Alice in wonderland so that we could simply enjoy the possibly of being a young girl in a fantasy world.

3D Movies: How to Train Your Dragon

Dream Works latest release proves to be one of its finest projects yet, to tell you more about it, here’s a review on “How to Train Your Dragon…”

If ever a film was crying out for Brian blessed, then surely ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ was it. DreamWorks’ new animated opus is packed with beefy Vikings, and when the key character of Stoick first took to the screen, everyone was excited however there are some voice actors that did a minimal job.

To be fair to the studio, it’s been less star-struck than usual, which is somewhat a benefit to the film. But this is also DreamWorks’s most confident animated feature so far too. One that occasionally trips over with the odd pander to the family audience, but still manages to tread an action packed plot.

The film was based on a story of the same name. The film version finds young Hiccup, son of Stoick, as the boy least likely to become a dragon slayer. This is a problem for him considering that Vikings face different fire breathing creatures on a regular basis. All of this is put across in a breathless, action-packed first act, with impressive 3D work.

The film is quite entertaining and fits the context of what’s going on.

The film utilizes its first act to get across the range of dragons that thrives in this world, including the sinister Night Fury. It’s a character has an ‘end of game boss’ tattooed across it from the moment it’s first mentioned.

After the opening action and exposition, the film concentrates particularly well in act two, where Hiccup finds and begins to befriend a dragon. What’s interesting is that the dragon that Hiccup discovers is a dark, brooding beast at times, and not instantly one to warm to.

As the story progresses, the relationship of the two develops with the emphasis on gestures. It’s carefully done, well built up, and you actually buy the fact that the pair are bonding. What great about it are the twists in the story and there are a couple of characters here that are actually worth rooting for.

Where the film is at its weakest is when it digs into the familiar potourri of clichés. So, there’s a father who doesn’t believe in his son, an unconvincing young heroine who starts off as a quite spiteful rival to Hiccup then starts to turn, and the necessary implementation of the moral at the end of the story. One thing about it is how it kind of blends that comedy and laughs with the whole story. Another factor to it is that the set piece sequences are often really quite brilliant, and the final act has the frenetic feel of the end of the back end of a (good) Star Wars movie.

In addition to that, the dragons themselves are genuinely quite frightening beasts for a younger audience, with no attempt made to soften them. The moment they start spewing those balls of flame, there’s a real sense that these are aggressive beasts.

It’s great to see DreamWorks following this path, too. Since most viewers can get to some of their static style of film making. In this film, you get a sense of just what it can do when it cuts loose, and it’s certainly worth watching.

DreamWorks Animation on form is certainly capable of brilliant work. And under the stewardship of directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois (the pair who made Disney’s Lilo And Stitch), this film has demonstrated that not only does the film look stunning but also good family entertainment.

To sum it all up, How To Train Your Dragon is certainly served with a coherent, exciting and engaging three-act blockbuster with missteps are easily papered over by great action sequences for you to enjoy.
