I was invited to a very important date..

invite Alice in w

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland features a new adventure in the form of a 19 year old Alice, about to be married off to a ‘Lord’ of an acceptable social standing & reputable family, which other than an indigestion problem, would have been considered a catch as a husband.

In the midst of discovering herself & her direction in life (wow, you mean this kind of thing do happen back then?), she was unwittingly bought back to the Wonderland she visited as a child, but this time with absolutely no recollection of what happened.

I am writing this review as someone who has absolutely no idea of the story of Alice in Wonderland. Nope, I haven’t read the book, nor I do have any such intention to do so in the next 10 years.

Back to movie….I’m sorry that I didn’t really enjoy it. I mean, yeah, there was plenty of props, an almost unbelievable FASHIONABLE attire (check out Alice’s dresses!) and dialogues at most parts that was completely UNcomprehensible.

The 3D rendition was almost negligible too;  for all that I could make out of the special effects (if there was any to begin with).

Now now, don’t let a cynical 28- year- old who does not believe in fairy tales deter you from the snaking long queues at the ticketing counter.
I think this makes an entertaining watch for those who are fans of Alice and is certainly a very child- friendly film, though The White Queen is a bit too bimbo-ish to be of any role model. All in all, it is still the perfect movie for families.

For me, the tea party made up for any disappointment. Scrummy sandwiches, English cookies and ok-can-eat-la cupcakes. We ate for free of course, but no fret, the tea set is available for RM35++ at Dome or Aseana Cafe.

Eye candy: Coffee, tea or me? ;p

For the KLCC screening (there is another in MV this coming Wed, which promises to be bigger, better & more extravagant!), the tea party was at the Melium Galleria, Ground Floor, Suria KLCC. The whole place was decked out in props and an actual tea table for Alice and her friends were laid out at the venue.

Greedy me walloped the whole plate (it was meant for 2 😉 ) by myself.  My vote goes to the sandwiches and scones.

Free popcorn & Coke at the entrance to the cinema hall. A big thank you to Disney, Buena Vista Columbia & The Melium Group for the exclusive Media invites.

I can’t resist snapping pics of these dresses by The Melium Group. I didn’t bother asking for the prices of course.

    Gasp! You have not read Lewis Carroll’s Alice yet? I don’t know how many afternoons lazy were spent during my childhood dreaming about falling into a rabbit hole and meeting all the enigmatic characters asking exasperating questions and giving exasperating, philosophical answers. A lot of beautiful logical absurdities too. And Carroll was a Logician/Mathematician. It is an amazing piece of Victorian literature that has spawned a lot of discussion about existence, non existence, contingency, symbolism of the Mad Hatter’s party, growing up, etc… My favourite version (with Tenniel’s illustrations) available free here:

    i went into the movie without realizing that it would be completely unfaithful to the original story. i guess that’s the main reason i didn’t really enjoy it either…
    your tea party looks more appetizing than the one in the movie though 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      U didn’t enjoy it? Heh..now i dont feel so weird! 😉
      Oh, the tea set is ok.

  5. ai wei

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes, it’s entertaining. Not great, not horrid, but generally can watch i guess.

  6. Leo

  7. Sean Arturo

    I wasnt so sure of this film for my younger kids – its a little to grown up which is a shame.

  8. Justified

    I have been researching this subject for quite a lot of time and you just blew my mind with your writing 🙂

  9. Hey, great post, but WordPress breaks it up on my computer. Maybe it’s the plugin you have installed. Have you considered Joomla?
