i saw my first ever 3-D movie this weekend, the full imax experience (whatever that last actually means). as you can guess from the post title, i saw alice in wonderland, and though i can't say that i totally loved the film, i did totally love the ending.
the rest of the post has spoilers, so i've hidden it below just in case you don't want to know what happens.
so, what i loved most about the ending was that alice didn't run off with a "prince charming" type character. in fact, she had no romantic involvement at all, and went off to a future where she determined the course of her life. YAY!!!!
it actually reminded of the ending of yentl, which was another great movie. and the film itself reminded me a little of the golden compass. in any case, it's nice to see a film with heroine doing all the cool stuff, finding herself and finding her courage. all in a blockbuster hollywood film. double YAY!!!!
i'd have drooled about johnny depp's performance too, but i've gone off him ever since he made statements supporting roman polanski. still, i totally enjoyed the 3-D thing, and i'm thinking that i'll have to try that again.
