this is no bad dream

on 5/12/2012

Because of critics' reaction to Alice in Wonderland in 1951, it is written, Walt Disney actually apologized for the movie and soon after his television show became a hit a few years later, he showed it in its entirety on TV, thus relegating it to his "minor film" category. The movie has never been able to shake this image, and that is a shame. We should remember that "Wizard of Oz" wasn't a giant box office hit in 1939, and only after it was made an annual event on television did it become a classic in the eyes of the public. "Alice in Wonderland" deserves far more attention than it has ever received. The characters are wonderful. The music is humable, even singable. It's a short film that takes the viewer into a dreamland, and Disney's animated version stands up against any of the other live versions that have popped up over the years. It's time to give this movie the credit it deserves as a classic in animation. Watch it from a child's point of view, with the amazing images of a cat that disappears, talking cards, and Alice constantly growing and shrinking. And then enjoy it as an adult for the dream world into which we are all swept. And furthermore, the DVD transfer is fantastic, with as many extras as one will find on a Disney non-special edition disc. Take another look at this one and be swept away.

Editors Note
Note Based on the 1865 book by Lewis Carroll, this is the classic Disney animated version of Alice's adventures as she follows a white rabbit into a "Wonderland" of her own imagination. On her journey, she encounters the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and a host of other beloved characters brought to life with the usual Disney zest. Combining stellar animation with upbeat songs such as "I'm Late," ALICE IN WONDERLAND garnered an Academy Award nomination for "Best Scoring of a Musical Picture."
Plot Summary
Summary Animated musical version of the Lewis Carroll classic about a prim young girl who falls down a rabbit hole and encounters an upside-down, illogical, magical world. This is the classic Disney version, featuring beautiful animation and startling imagery.
USA Today "This Disney classic is a psychedelic hoot." 01/27/2004 p.3D
Entertainment Weekly "[S]tunning....Mind-bogglingly vivid..." 02/13/2004 p.60
Premiere "The result is visually beautiful, never less than engaging..." 03/01/2004 p.100
A.V. Club "[With] casually surreal flower gardens...and wondrous backgrounds that broke with house style in favor of the more stylized animation and lush color palettes coming into vogue." -- Grade: B 02/09/2011
