engagement and Alice

Thanks to jaded_jamie and woman_of_ for the LJ virtual gifts and engagement congrats!

Jillian and I went to see "Alice in Wonderland" this week. My dislike of a grown Alice was lessened a bit by the knowledge that this is actually a sequel to the original story, rather than a remake, and overall I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The girl who played Alice seemed a bit bland at times -- or maybe it was just compared to the crazies around her? It's possible that she had trouble acting against the green screen, especially since the more experienced Johnny Depp admitted to having some trouble with it. Speaking of green screen, the effects were generally seamless, and the characters well realized. The 3D wasn't too intrusive, the way it often was in the early "look at me! I'm so awesome!" days. Only once was I tempted to duck. :-)

Not a perfect movie, but overall well worth seeing in the theater.
