Genre: Fantasy / Animated
I always loved this movie, primarily because it was one of only a handful that were available for the kids to watch up at our cottage in Namur (the other coming to mind is "Swiss Family Robinson" (addition pending)).
They just re-released it from the "Vault" and I'm trying to get my daughter interested in renting it, but she always succumbs to the lure of The Barbie movies....sigh!
Funny thing, though, I seem to recall that the movie was based on Lewis Caroll's version and that was written whilst ABSOLUTELY STONED on heroin (or opium)...good kids story!?
There's also numerous references to seemingly seedy, dark behaviour, least of which is the American McGee video game version. It lends out SO easily to this kind of comparison!
I remember they made a softporno version of this @ when i was young(12) i rented it @ boni soir, i was like wow! thats pretty much my memories of alice in wonderland. I always thought it was odd!
C'mon, ALL these stories were penned while stoned! Pinnocchio in a whale? Quaaludes! Aladdin flying a magic carpet? Magic mushrooms!
Seven coal-mining dwarfs? Horse tranquilizers!
Cinderella's coach turning into a pumpkin? Goofballs! High as a kite, everybody!
Anyways, what were we talking about?
Oh yeah, Alice. Opium!
"The Queen! The Queen! The Queen is coming!"
- Darrell, speaking his only line, as a playing card guard, in the Greendale Elementary School production of Alice in Wonderland. A star was born!
Bastard! I knew you'd mention that...I should have been the caterpiller, I WAS ROBBED!!!
Anywho, speaking of drugs, what about fantasia??!!? That movie's completely messed up.
This is a classic however, and I've seen it many times. Although weird, very good. Animation is top shelf fo it's time (as are most Disney classics)
