February 19, 2019

Curiouser and curiouser.

Last week, we discussed Disney’s classic Alice from 1951 and concluded that we like it, even though we’re not sure why because it doesn’t make sense. This week, we examine Disney’s shot at redemption, with Tim Burton’s 2011 live action Alice in Wonderland. Is it a better adaptation? What do we think of Johnny Depp’s accent and all of the CGI? All this and more on Monoreel Radio.

Down the rabbit hole we go.

This week, we review and discuss the 1951 Disney classic, "Alice In Wonderland". This film has been applauded for its outstanding animation, but also at times criticized for having too many cooks in the kitchen.
