Alice in Wonderland (1951) Movie Review


Another fun Disney classic that stamped its legacy in history. Alice in Wonderland's story has been popularly known and taught to kids because of the critical lessons it brings to children.


Plot Overview


Based on the classic Lewis Carroll book. The story begins when a young Alice and her cat gets tired of her sister's history lesson and daydream. Suddenly she spots a rabbit in a waistcoat and complains of being late. The curious Alice follows the unwanted creature down to its rabbit hole, where she accidentally falls. She finds herself stuck in a small room with a tiny door. She drank a little potion to shrink herself enough to open the door. She amazes herself and begins to question the world she is in.


Alice and her curious personality encounter many beings in a dreamy places. She meets the jolly twins, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Walrus and the Carpenter, Cheshire Cat, Dormouse, March Hare, and the famous Mad Hatter. She goes on a quest to find her way back home, but before she does, she must meet the hard-headed Red Queen and make a bargain.


Review


Alice in Wonderland might have been one of those Disney movies that received a lot of backlash upon initial release stating that the film did not do justice to the famous book. It might be true that the art style is different from Disney's interpretation, which garnered so many negative reviews. However, while most might agree with them, I certainly do not.


Alice in Wonderland may not be the best film Disney has offered throughout history, but I still find it enjoyable. Plus, it brings some nostalgia to me whenever I watch it. The story itself is very dreamlike and puts you in a certain mood that you just want to spend more time with the characters. Those gag outfits that seem to magnify their personalities are a delightful sight.


Overall, Alice in Wonderland is a delightful movie that brings back my childhood in me. It does not have a long screen time, and it's a perfect Sunday movie to enjoy with the family.


A good 4 out of 5 stars.
