Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 fantasy adventure film directed by Tim Burton, written by Linda Woolverton, and stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover, Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry. It is an extension of Lewis Carroll’s novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The film uses a technique of combining live action and animation.
In the film, Alice is now 19 years old and accidentally returns to Underland, a place she previously visited 13 years ago. She is told that she is the only one that can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon controlled by the Red Queen. Burton said the original Wonderland story was always about a girl wandering around from one character to another and he never felt a connection emotionally, so he wanted to make it feel more like a story than a series of events.
He does not see this as a sequel to previous films or a re-imagining. It premiered in London at the Odeon Leicester Square on February 25, 2010 and was released in Australia on March 4, 2010 and the United States and the United Kingdom on March 5, 2010 through Walt Disney Pictures in 3-D and IMAX 3-D, as well as in regular theaters.
Alice Kingsley, 19, attends a party at a Victorian estate shortly after the death of her beloved father. She learns that the party is actually an engagement party to wed her into the Ascot family, who now own her father’s trading firm. Unsure of an answer to Hamish Ascot’s proposal, Alice runs away and follows the White Rabbit, Nivens McTwisp, but falls down a rabbit hole into Underland, a bizarre world she previously visited as a child, although she has no memory of it.
Things are less frightening to Alice because she thinks it is only a dream. When she mentions this to someone in Underland he is disappointed, because it means that he is not real.
It is explained throughout the course of the film that Iracebeth, the Red Queen, conquered Underland by stealing the ruling crown from her sister Mirana, the White Queen, but Alice will slay the Red Queen’s guardian, the Jabberwocky, on the Frabjous Day using the Vorpal Sword.
However, a misunderstanding of words from Absolem the Caterpillar makes everyone believe that Alice is the wrong one. The forces of the Red Queen attack and capture McTwisp, Uilleam the Dodo, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee, whilst Alice escapes. The Knave of Hearts, Ilosovic Stayn, informs the Red Queen of Alice’s return; the Red Queen orders Alice’s capture.
Alice is found by Chessur, a grinning cat, who leads her to The Hatter, Thackery Earwicket and Mallymkun. As Ilosovic searches for Alice, The Hatter flees toward the White Queen’s castle with a shrunken Shite, but he is caught, leaving Alice and his hat behind.
A bloodhound named Bayard, who was forced to work for the Red Queen due to his imprisoned family, aids Alice in sneaking into the Red Queen’s castle to rescue The Hatter. McTwisp, now a page for the Red Queen, gives Alice some food which makes her grow to a large size, but she fools the Red Queen into believing she is “Um from Umbridge”, and The Hatter is made the Red Queen’s hat maker.
Alice learns that the Vorpal Sword is hidden in the den of the Bandersnatch, whose eye was removed by Mallymkun earlier. The eye is restored by Alice, making the Bandersnatch choose to side with her and escape from the castle with her and Bayard.
Chessur saves Tarrant and Mallymkun from execution, and they lead all of the enslaved Underland creatures to flee the Red Queen’s castle. Alice delivers the Vorpal Sword to the White Queen and returns to her normal size, but she remains unsure whether she can kill the Jabberwocky.
Absolem, going into his pupa stage, reminds Alice of her past visit to Underland and gives her the courage and belief to fight the Jabberwocky. On the Frabjous Day, the forces of the White and Red Queens converge on a battlefield to decide the fate of Underland.
Alice fights the Jabberwocky and decapitates him, while the Red Queen’s forces side with the White Queen, who regains her crown and then banishes her sister and Ilosovic to the outlands forever. Alice returns home by drinking blood of the Jabberwocky, refuses Hamish’s proposal, and becomes an apprentice for Hamish’s father with the idea of beginning trade routes with China. The film ends with Alice sailing away on a ship, with Absolem, now as a butterfly, flying away from her shoulder.

1. POINT BREAK (1991)
Compromised FBI agent, Keanu Reeves, is forced to help in escape of robber, Patrick Swayze. Patrick jumps out of plane with last parachute… And then… Incredible Keanu jumps out too, without parachute and manages to catch bandit in the air. Now we have incredible air ballet and successful landing!!? Compared to this, 007 stunts look like BBC documentary.
2. ENIGMA (2001)
Code breaker, scientist Scott and his assistant in form of Kate Winslet, grab a part of German code machine, Enigma. But British Intelligence follows them closely… And then… We have slowest and most boring car chase in history of movies. 15 kph? They would go faster with tractors.
3. ADAPTATION. (2002)
Writer Charlie Kaufman is imprisoned in a swamp by John Laroche and Susan Orlean, subject and author of his adaptation “The Orchid Thief”. Laroche points the gun… And then… Alligator attacks Laroche and ends a good movie with most amazing trick. Well, that is the point. But it is also very stupid.
4. HOOK (1991)
You got to admit, pretty good beginning of a movie. Middle-aged Peter Pan returns to Neverland… And then… We have Lost Boys in a form of caricaturization of British fashion scene from, maybe 1982. Costume makers and all others responsible for that, should be punished, accordingly.
5. CLIFFHANGER (1993)
Stallone in a pretty good story, on a very unusual place. Everything is interesting, there is suspense and it is all good… And then… He impales one of the bad guys on a stalactite. Yes, stalactite. Well, now he tried everything (literally).
6. THE SWEETEST THING (2002)
Cameron Diaz and her jubilant friends Christina Applegate and Selma Blair, are in a restaurant and talk about… well mostly they talk about male geitalia. And then… “You’re too big to fit in here, too big to fit in here, too big to fit in here” sings Diaz, on a melody of “I’m too se*y” by Right Said Fred. Soon everyone from restaurant jump up and start to sing, what it looks like an ode to pe**s. Well now…
7. xXx (2002)
Modern version of 007, Vin Diesel is in bad situation. While he exits restaurant in Prague a hidden sniper shoots at him. And then… Extreme sports solution, tray instead of snowboard. There, there Vin…
8. JEPPERS CREEPERS (2001)
Great begining of Victor Salva movie. Two kids are harassed by a mysterious man with a hat that drives a black van. And then… Salva shows what he thinks of movie audience, he thinks they have amnesia. Man with the hat was first run over by car, revived and then flys to the air as a giant bat. And he doesn’t explain that in part two. Stupid.
9. SIGNS (2002)
Master of suspense, M. Night Shyamalan carefully keeps tension up as family of Mel Gibson is facing alien threat. And then… Mel discovers that aliens can be killed by… a glass of water? Which means that those genius aliens, with advanced civilization, decided to colonize planet that is 2/3 under water. And what would happen when it starts to rain?
10. THE POSTMAN (1997)
Things are not looking good for Costner’s post-apocalyptic career as a postman. Psychotic Will Patton is about to shoot him. And then… Kevin calms situation down with Shakespeare citation: “Now is the winter of our discontent.” “You are not bad.” – says crying Patton. Kevin lives. Corollary: Stupid survived apocalypse.
There is a lots of movies that you can see before summer, but we can recommend these. Take a look.
