First of all I was hesitant to watch through the looking glass partlybecause of bad reviews but mostly because my favorite director TimBurton didn't direct this movie. I finally watched through the lookingglass and I was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful graphics and visualsand a touching plot about the importance of not taking those you lovefor granted...and not taking time for granted. This movie shows how weall learn from our pasts and that we cannot and should not want tochange the past. It seems a majority of the critics could not put twoand two together to understand or appreciate the message this filmconveyed. Shame on you critics ... curiouser and curiouser. ..why halfof you can't comprehend. Maybe lacking neurons and brain cells ?Wonderful job done by the actors and actresses as well as the directortrying to add some spice to a worldly well written classic by respectedauthor Lewis Carroll

There is a common theory that Lewis Caroll was high on LSD when he madeup the story of Alice in Wonderland. A concept that wouldn't becompletely misplaced given its lunacy and a particular insinuation ofcertain consumables affecting Alice and her state of being. The truthof how it became is far more innocent but it doesn't stop people makingtheir own assumptions, much like the reasoning as to why it attractedTim Burton and Johnny Depp. The 2010 movie was a cocktail ofover-cooked CGI and relied heavily on its main ingredient, anotherhaughty creation from Depp who, thanks to his Jack Sparrow fame, worethe mantle of one of the most prominent character actors of ourgeneration. At the time the visuals were considered a revelation, butwhere they succeeded the script severely lacked and a much loved storywas exhaustively drawn out. Muppets Most Wanted director James Bobintakes the helm (or the blame - depending on how you want to look at it)with all of the original cast returning to their roles including;Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry and Mia Wasikowska asAlice.
We find Alice at the beginning of the movie as the Captain of a shipwhich is threatened to be taken away from her unless she gives up herfamily home, a deal her Mother struck in a bid to avoid financial ruin.Feeling betrayed, Alice makes a run for it and finds a magic portalthrough a huge glass mirror. It doesn't take long before we'repropelled back into Wonderland through a vortex of swirling colours andflashing images. An epileptic nightmare. Alice instantly findsfamiliarity in the form of Absolem et al before they inform her thatthe Mad Hatter is dying and the only thing that will save him is ifAlice believes that his family are still alive. She then sets upon amission to go back in time to warn them of the danger that may causetheir death - This is the kind of story that seems to be clutching atthe proverbial straw but at that definitive moment within the first 15minutes of the movie, you know exactly what to expect.
What made Alice in Wonderland so appealing was the premise of suchmemorable characters. Wasikowska seems to slip back into her role withease, however, she had some practice playing a similar role inGuillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak (2015). It's not to say that she is aone trick pony, but it is difficult to distinguish variety in herperformances.
The introduction of (a very reserved) Sacha Baron Cohen as Time and anew antagonist has a promising start and receives the majority of thelaughs. Unfortunately his character soon becomes second rate to HelenaBonham Carter's bellowing Red Queen and her painful over- acting beginsto grate. Even Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter becomes a pathetic re-imaginingas he limps through the movie offering very little performance. Namely,his forced lisp which makes his voice sounds like a creepy, old manthat forgot to put his teeth in. The real shame is the misuse of therest of the original cast who are forced to provide mere cameos incomparison to the lead actors. This is the final performance from AlanRickman before his untimely death and the only regret is that he isbarely given enough screen time to make an impact on the movie at all.
James Bobin does very well to mimic the style of the first movie. Theaudience are dazzled with so much visually, it appears like a desperateattempt to make up for the distinct lack of story. Alice Through theLooking Glass is a lot more structured (believe it or not) than thefirst instalment but, once again, it suffers from irritating pacingissues and poor performances from their key actors. On a positive note,thanks to the hypnotic special effects this is an entertainingchildren's movie and, regardless of the crude insinuations, that ismost likely what Lewis Carroll intended it to be when he told it to 10year old Alice Liddell as they rowed down the Thames. Whether that wasthe intention of Tim Burton is another thing altogether. But for theadults, this one will send you a little MAD.
I usually don't go in depth much about my thoughts on movies, andthat's because in most cases, I feel like everything there is to sayabout a movie has already been said because so many people, not justcritics, are able to voice their opinions now with the advent of socialmedia. I also understand that it's very hard to make a movie,especially a good one, so I generally try not to give much attention tobad movies or waste my time and energy bashing them.
With "Alice Through the Looking Glass," though, I feel like I have toput my opinion out there. I'm in the minority with this one in that Iloved "Wonderland" and was incredibly excited to see "Looking Glass."Having finally seen the movie, I'm really disappointed. I feel burned.
Tim Burton directed "Alice in Wonderland" but chose not to direct thisone - in his place is James Bobin, director of the two most recent"Muppets" films (the first of which I thought was great, the secondmuch less so but still fine). I think it would be unfair to put all ofthe blame on him, but he's certainly responsible for some of what wentwrong here... as is screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who I almost can'tbelieve is the same person who wrote "Alice and Wonderland,""Maleficent," and the original "Beauty and the Beast." While herprevious work is whimsical but subtle and sophisticated, "Alice Throughthe Looking Glass" is an uninspired mess, and I can't help but suspectthat she really didn't care about this at all.
You know, it seems like almost no one involved in making this moviecared. Mia Wasikowska is probably the only member of the cast whodeserves any praise, and I thought she did an even better job playingAlice here than she did in the first movie. Everyone else though,ESPECIALLY Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, should be embarrassed.Johnny's Mad Hatter was one of the best things about the first one, buthere, he's just really weird and annoying. Like, super annoying...
I don't even think the composer, the usually amazing Danny Elfman, putforth much of an effort here. The score for "Alice in Wonderland" isone of my favorite scores for a movie ever, but it's like for this one,he thought he could just recycle the stuff he wrote for the first oneand that no one would notice? Well, I did, Danny. I noticed.
The visual effects and production design are pretty great, as theyshould be, but you never get that sense of wonder or escapism that youshould get with a movie like this because so much of the movie is justpeople standing around bantering or delivering boring exposition. Themovie is loud and sometimes frantic but rarely fun or engaging. It's amajor disappointment and a major step back from "Alice in Wonderland"and Disney's other recent live-action fairytale adaptations. It's justnot good.
