ALICE IN WONDERLAND
The critics might not all agree on the music and what not of this show, but it'll probably make big...anyway.
I had the opportunity to go to an IMAX theater to see it. 3-D glasses and all...and it was spectacular. The special effects are brilliant, and the acting isn't to shabby, either. Although, my friend thought Johnny was going to break out in 'jack sparrow' a moment or two. Really, though he was just MAD as the mad hatter.
I think this production made me see the time of how the writer lived, as well. How things were done in those days. While some might see it as a touch of Anti-Catholic, what remains is a time where women had to become what they were suppose to be with no say in the matter through the eyes of men.
And even if the author of the original did find a muse in an eleven year old burnette bobbed girl, the film certain goes to show that girl power can shine through in the most mysterious places. Perhaps we've all visted a place similar to Wonderland when we were small. Really, the film is rich with a history of dreams and the original Alice and Wonderland.
Now you won't get a hint of that playlist until the credit roll. So really Avril didn't ruin anything for the movie.
