Alice in Wonderland Reviews Still Mixed!

It turns out that the first two reviews we posted for Alice in Wonderland were just the beginning of a bigger trend. So far critics have had mixed opinions on what to think about the film. And it's not like they all sort of like it or dislike it either. I mean, some are calling the film "wonderful" while others downright dislike it altogether. So who to believe?

Alice in Wonderland Gets More Mixed Responses

Hard to say, as the latest two reviews -- which are mixed, mind you -- for Alice in Wonderland both pitch their case with conviction.

Lewis Carroll wrote a perfectly lovely sequel himself. It is wrong-headed in pretty much every way it can be, poorly designed, loud, and worst of all, boring. It is a catastrophe as a movie, and as a place marker in the career of Tim Burton, it is a big fat dead end.

I could go on, but why? More than anything, I'm just plain sad that this is where Tim Burton is as a filmmaker in the year 2010.

Director Tim Burton returns to his ‘A’ game with this magnificent, visually stunning movie that is not only one of his best, it is indeed a wonder. Adapting the famous Lewis Carroll books but updating them and making Alice a 19 year old bride-to-be, Burton and his screenwriter, Linda Woolverton, have taken a twisted tale and twisted it some more to create an astonishing and magical movie full of surprises and fantastic characters. Expect monstrous box office returns and bountiful DVD action even if Disney does break the video window with the release of 2010’s first true potential blockbuster.

See what I'm saying? Incredibly mixed. Check out both full reviews for Wonderland by clicking the bold links above.

Alice in Wonderland opens to theaters on March 5th.
