Movie Review: Alice in Wonderland (2010)

Tim Burton’s live action take on Alice in Wonderland (B-) is pretty enjoyable, relying, as he does, in style over substance. The visually inventive director has a field day with the 3-D and whimsical characters; it’s a “drink me” dreamscape of oddities to ogle. The film is a pretty fun confection but largely forgettable. Mia Wasikowska is a solid female lead, and Helena Bonham Carter was funny. Johnny Depp may have run out of eccentric ideas.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
