Plot: A fantasy story based on one of most beloved stories of all time, Alice in Wonderland. There are plots and twists that do not exist in the original story, making it more suitable for all audiences/ages.  Alice travels to a mystical fantasy wonderland she’s always imagined only existed in her dreams, and wonders why every one wonders  whether “ she is the right Alice or not”. Soon, it becomes clear that the right Alice has to free the land from the grip of the ruthless Red Queen, and slay the monster called the Jabberwocky. It is not so “wonderland” after all…

Verdict: Tim Burton has set a reputation as the one to pull off fantasy and animation movies.  Although some of the narration and core of the story are lost, Alice in wonderland remains a movie very much worth watching.
