Movie Reviews

Favorite ALICE, Lackluster DVD
Matt Howe | Washington, DC | 01/04/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is my favorite production of the ALICE books. I love the sets, songs, and casting. It's also very British, which I think adds another great element to the mix.

However, skip this DVD edition. I got it, excited to see ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND in widescreen and, perhaps a better print than what's previously been available.

No such luck.

The DVD appears to be struck from the same crappy VHS version that's been out there for ages. Faded colors. Pan-and-scan. In this age of DVD, quality like this is such a shame."
Good Movie - Lousy quality
Norbert Evans | Nine Mile Falls, WA United States | 12/21/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD and got it brand new sealed. However it is from a company called DIGIVIEW PRODUCTIONS and the quality of the picture is absolutely horrible. There is almost no color and there are many spots where it appears it was dropped to 15 frames a second or less. The movie itself is very good but this copy totally sucks. This DIGIVIEW copy was produced in Taiwan and it is the worst quality DVD I now own. I would be embarrassed to loan it to anyone."
Interesting all-star British adaptation, but DVD transfer is
David Pearlman | Arlington, MA United States | 09/30/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very interesting adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, featuring a plethora of major British actors from the time this movie was made. Note that today's younger audience, weened on an MTV diet of rapid cuts and incredible CGI, may find this slow. But if one can get beyond that, it's most definitely worth a watch.

That said, this DVD transfer is basically UNWATCHABLE. It's not clear what source they used for the transfer, but there are TERRIBLE audio pitch problems throughout the movie, with wow and flutter horribly apparent. This is particularly problematic for a movie like this with a significant orchestral and vocal score. If you have any sense of pitch, you'll find yourself pulling your hair out listening to the off-key strings! The video quality is pretty horrible, as well--worse than standard cable. A real travesty."
The whimsy world of Wonderland
David Demoreski | Perth Amboy, New Jersey United States | 07/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This British film version of the Lewis Carroll classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is without a doubt the most faithful adaption to date! (except for the addition of the Looking-Glass twins, Tweedle Dee and Dum.). A surperb cast, lead by the talented Fiona Fullerton, who makes a splendid Alice, is supported by some of Britain's finest actors as the inhabitants of Wonderland; Sir Ralph Richardson as the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, Michael Crawford as the ever-tardy White Rabbit, Dame Flora Robson as the head-hunting Queen of Hearts and Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore as the mad March Hare and his sleepy sidekick, the Doormouse. The American popularity of he last two mentioned actors is why the film was shown overseas here in the United States. Miss Fullerton may seem a bit too old for the title role, but I don't think a child actress would had enough scope to play Alice so well. (If you don't think so, imaging if Sherley Temple won the role of Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz". YIKES! ), but I digress. The musical score is beautifully haunting and so is the final song "The Me I Never Knew". This song and "Curiouser And Curiouser" are the only two songs that really stand out. Most of the other songs are corny little ditties with no sense of what the characters are thinking or feeling. The sets look like cardboard cut outs at times and the fast speed photography during the Lobster Quadrille and quick cut shots at the mad tea-party look campy and thus the overall British feel of the movie is lost. Despite all my negative insights, I found this film version of "Alice" filled with the wonderful, whimsical flavor that only Lewis Carroll himself could have provided. A must see for all fans of the famous book."
