"Alice in Wonderland" movie

Went and saw "Alice in Wonderland" with Kristy, Christine and others a few weeks ago. Normally I'm a pretty strong book purist, but I make an exception for Alice. The adaptions are all part of the fun of it! So I wasn't annoyed by all the changes... on the other hand, the Cheshire Cat's floatiness irked me, and it drove me up the wall every time they talked about "the Jabberwocky"... although the Jabberwock was pretty awesome in the end (and voiced by Christopher Lee! Who else has the reputation required to voice the Jabberwock?) and I love how they made it look like the original illustration but BETTER. In fact it was probably the only thing I thought of as 'better' instead of just 'different'.

The other thing that disappointed me is that, even with the large focus on "Through the Looking-Glass", the White Knight (my favourite character) wasn't in it. I guess the Hatter kind of took his role, but it would have been nice to see him. Even as a cameo. I don't know, maybe he was in the background at some point in the White Queen's castle and I missed it? If he wasn't, he should have been.

So, overall it was reasonably enjoyable, but I probably wouldn't watch it again.
