Marina’s Movie Madness

Marina came to America from Pskov, Russia when she was 13 1/2 years old.

She’s in her second year of school at Paradise Valley Community College with hopes of becoming a Pediatrician Practitioner.

Besides her obsession with movies, she enjoys spending her time with her best friends and family.


Marina’s Movie Madness


Alice in the Wonderland:

I did not see Alice in Wonderland in 3D like some people did, so maybe that makes a difference, but I did not like it at all.

Me and my friend Natalie went to the midnight showing because I thought it will be so good, but the commercials were the best parts of the movie.

It put me to sleep.

I know the first one was a cartoon, and maybe they should have stuck with that one, because sometimes you just ruin the overall opinion of the movie by creating the 2nd one.

I definitely liked the cartoon better.

We all know that Johnny Depp can play any role, and he is great at it, but I don’t think he was at his best in this movie.

When I was watching, he reminded me of  Jack from Pirates of the Caribbean (it’s like he was in the same character).

I wasn’t sure what message I was supposed to take away from the movie, and it was too long.

I don’t even know if I can think of one positive thing–okay–there were some funny parts but not a lot of them.

Maybe I did not like it that much because I went to see that movie with such high expectations.

  1. Marina, I am loving these reviews and beginning to really trust you.
    My 4 y.o. niece, Sydney, wants to see Alice so bad. I think we’ll skip it.
    Great job on your reviews!

  2. OK, I have an embarassing confession: I don’t even know the story of Alice In Wonderland.

    I mean, I hear about it all of the time, but I don’t know it.

    Is that sad or what?

  3. I liked the movie, but it was definitely different than the cartoon and the book. But I tend to like anything by Tim Burton (other than “The Nightmare Before Christmas”). I didn’t see it in 3D either, but I wish I could have.

  4. I haven’t seen it yet. My husband has, though, and he seemed indifferent to the experience. And he usually has high praises for movies. Too bad this one was a dud. It’s the worst when you have unmet expectations. Thanks for you honest opinion, Marina!
