From Amazon.co.uk

The marriage of director Tim Burton with the darker edges of the Alice In Wonderland story seems, on paper, to be an impressive match. And to a point, it is: Burton’s film explodes with colour and style, bringing a real sense of imagination to the classic Lewis Carroll stories. Alice In Wonderland isn’t perfect, though. It’s, at heart, far more conventional than you may be expecting, and the beefing up of the Mad Hatter’s role to accommodate the casting of Johnny Depp is problematic. That said, Depp’s performance is fine, even if it’s Helena Bonham-Carter who steals every scene she’s in. And Burton also wisely casts a strong supporting cast of British thespians, who don’t get enough screen time, but make the most of what they get. The end result, however, is a fun telling of an engaging story. And while Tim Burton’s take on Alice In Wonderland is far from the best filmed take on the source material, it’s nonetheless a solid family movie. It also looks stunning on Blu-ray. The colourful production design comes across wonderfully well, in vibrant 1080p, and the enveloping sound mix matches it too. And given how often the film is likely to be re-spun over the years, it’s easily the best way to own the film. --Jon Foster

Format: Blu-ray
Alice in Wonderland is a familiar tale, it's been told many times and there are countless film adaptations (including the `fifties animated Disney film). Instead of retelling an already established story, Tim Burton has instead created a sequel of sorts where an older Alice revisits the place she recalls from a recurring dream.

When I heard that there was to be a new Alice in Wonderland film made I was doubtful that it could work, but when I read that Tim Burton was directing I knew it would be in safe hands - he is one of only a few directors I could imagine creating a world with the gothic, otherworldly appearance required. The result is a fresh look at well known characters in a different adventure, so Burton has the freedom to break from the original without upsetting purists - as long as he stays true to the characters of course.

The general look of the characters and their surroundings is both magical and whimsical, it resembles the illustrations I remember from my Lewis Carroll book while also looking new. It has the trademark Burton look and has the usual collaboration with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and perhaps more essentially, Danny Elfman. The cast has been chosen with care, most characters are CGI and the voices behind them convey the various animals and people well.

The characters seem to be in keeping with both the original book and established idea of what the cast should be like through years of various re-tellings. The Hatter could perhaps have been darker, but the pseudo-schizophrenic mania and colourful look are enough to bring him to life. He's given a personal history too to give extra depth, there's also a great flashback to the original meeting of the young Alice with the tea party which marries the new story with the old.

This is Alice In Wonderland suffused with Alice Through the Looking Glass, Jabberwocky, a few Shakespearian twists and other things I'm not well-read enough to know. Don't watch this film expecting Alice In Wonderland.
Lewis Carrolls' original Alice was a trip through a wonderland...no point, no reason, (defiantly no reason), a wealth of rhyme, a slide ride from Olde England through psychedelic portraits of cats and caterpillars under seas of tears and questionable ingestions.
Tim Burtons' Alice In Wonderland is a Resistance film.

That doesn't make it bad. It's a film, not a book. It's a Tim Burton film, it's attraction lies in the pictures much more than the words, each image is burnt in flaming reds that scream into your eyeballs, sunk in deep blacks that dare you to breathe and framed in yellowing whites that tell their own story of decay.

The acting is...strange? Helena Bonham-Carter is a humourless version of Miranda Richardsons' Queen Elizabeth from Black Adder, Johnny Depp is Jack Black with a bit of Disney cuteness and Anne Hathaways' White Queen just 'Vogues' from her first to last appearance.

If you watch this film ready for a visual treat you won't be disappointed. Just don't expect the magic and imagination that Lewis Carroll created.

Format: DVD
Once again Tim Burton does a fine job of creating a fine fantasy world, into which a charming Alice (Mia Wasikowska, who more recently impressed me as Jane Eyre) is plunged when she falls down a rabbit hole. What follows is a bizarre set of adventures, inspired by rather than based on Lewis Carroll's works.

With a host of well known faces and voices, Burton's typically twisted and dark vision and some really very funny moments, this is an entertaining film that really helps pass the time. Johnny Depp provides one of his better performances of recent years, and Helena Bonham Carter is memorable as the Red Queen, especially in her final scenes. I rather enjoyed it, 4 stars.

I missed the film at the cinema because performances were booked up weeks in a row. For some bizarre reason, Disney doesn't allow you to buy the Blu-Ray separately. Here, I will cover two issues: whether Blu-ray is really better than DVD and if the film is any good.

I was unsure about the benefits of Blu-ray. With this combo pack, I was able to freeze duplicate scenes by playing the discs in my Blu-ray player and DVD recorder. What struck me was how the picture with DVD was squashed. The country house in the beginning looks smaller and less detailed. With Blu-ray there is more detail on screen and the whole of my large screen TV was filled. However, my DVD recorder lacks upscaling and so when the DVD version was played back on my Blu-ray player, I have to say the differences seemed less obvious and the DVD picture was much improved. I think the benefits of Blu-ray are better realised on a very large screen (40-50 inches) rather than on my 32 inch screen. Considering this, I think I will stay with DVDs, except for the odd special film. At least until prices come down generally (this pack is selling for nearly £25 at HMV!).

I have one complaint with the operation of the Blu-ray disc. Loading of the movie can take a while. I have a new player but whenever I stopped the movie for a few minutes to take a break, I had to play the movie from the very start (eg "select language") and then, after a few minutes, it picked up from the last point where I stopped. This was very frustrating. As this is an enhanced disc with many extra features (like Blu-ray Live) , it is possible that older players will need to a firmware update to access the features of this disc properly, according to the on-screen warning .
