Hes mad as a box of Frogs!

Alice Miniseries Blu ray Caterina Scorsone

Alice Miniseries Blu ray Caterina Scorsone

Yes, I loved it. Let me count the reasons why I loved it. Kathy Bates as the Queen of Hearts was styled beautifully. I love that her costumes weren't over the top or incredibly silly. She looked lovely and I thanked god for the minimalism. As all will trumpet, Hatter will get to you. He had me the moment he turned around. Andrew Lee Potts took the roll and made it memorable. And as the other reviewers would profess, he's not bad to look at either. Harry Dean Stanton as the Catepillar was a welcome little surprise, and Matt Frewer as the White Knight echoed Don Quixote in my mind, which made his character ever endearing and hilarious and show stealing. Plus, the Jack of Hearts as a blondie... pretty cute too. The only thing I had to do a double take on was Alice's fear of heights which magically appears only AFTER she meets Hatter and he promises to take her to Dodo. Apparently all that running around up high before hand never allowed the idea of fear to pop into her head, so I'll let that indiscretion slide. It just felt awkward to have her suddenly afraid of heights where it hadn't been introduced before. Even after she was a captured Oyster. If you haven't seen this yet, you'll see what I mean when you do. Worthy of purchasing. Enjoyed this much more than Tin-Man which had a lackluster ending and creepy daddy touchy feely on daughter moments. And yes... yes... I will admit it, the ending to 'Alice' touched that feminine girly spot inside me. Plus her mother's face was priceless. Would have loved to see her try and explain that to mom in the end.

  2. This is a fantastic twist on the classic tale. The sharp color contrasts and fantastic landscapes makes this movie a feast for the eyes. Another feast for the eyes is 'Hatter', one of the allies that Alice picks up along the way. You see all your favorite Wonderland characters in a fresh, new light. I even watched the entire film with the commentary, which now makes the story even more fun and interesting. (I never watch commentaries.) The only inconsistancy that bugs me is when Alice first goes through the looking glass. She lands in the hospital, but in all subsequent scenes with the looking glass the portal opens up into a large transit lobby. Otherwise this is a fun and entertaining film suitable for the entire family.

  3. I rented this movie on a whim from Netflix, not really knowing what to expect. This movie was so incredibly good- I found myself wishing it would never end. The plot was great, the twists on the original story were original and clever, and I absolutely fell in love with Hatter. That character is by far the best out of all of them in this movie, and they are ALL great, and very well played. I saw it once, obsessed about it for months, and am now buying it off Amazon. If you love quirky, clever movies, you will love this movie!!

  4. i absolutely love this sy-fy version... hands down favorite adaptation of Alice in Wonderland... EVER! the twists to the story make it just dark enough for the older crowd, but i beleive children would enjoy it as well. there's a nice mix between suspense and comedy. the characters portrayed are played flawlessly by an amazing cast... if you ever thought that it'd be weird if Alice and the Mad Hatter got together, you'd be wrong... Andrew Lee Potts steals the show in his portrayel of Hatter, the Prince of Hearts and Alice both are played very well, however the White Knight deserves his own round of applause, he created a great character here. LOVED it! so will you!
