After seeing the first movie in the series 'Alice in Wonderland' in the cinema i was excited when my best friend, Jedda offered me the seat next to her in the movie. I remembered seeing number one amazing 3d(and i really am not a fan of 3d) quality back when it first came out there was so much magic and the world was so easily immersible, I would be happy to say that the second movie in the series 'Alice Through The Looking Glass' was just as wonderful as the first but i am afraid I would be lying. Honestly, The Movie wasn't great, it was good at best. I had a lovely night but the movie was kind of disapointing. While the story was nice and supported the typical PG there's a lesson in this message, there was the humor, it was really missing something that the first one had plenty of and that was MAGIC. The movie really lacked Magic and that made me sad. I go in to my super hero movies expecting action (and eye candy), I go into my Tim Burton movies expecting magic and unfortunately in this one it just wasnt there. I am glad i got to have a night out with my bestie but the movie could have been so much better.
Favorite Part: Dedication to Alan Rickman! & When Alice was on the Chronosphere going through time
Least Favorite part: The reason why Red Queen hated White Queen, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
