Johnny Depp- Alice and Wonderland – Mixed Reviews

Here are what a couple of alice_in_wonderland_johnny__01people had to say about the new Move by Johnny Depp for Alice and wonderland.  I am going to watch it this weekend and I am really excited about it.  People have mixed reviews when it comes to seeing this movie but you have to watch it because one persons hate is another persons love.

Johhnny Depp Reviews

A bright, fantastical world. Bizarre, nonsensical characters. Johnny Depp. It would seem that “Alice” is the movie Tim Burton was born to make. However, critics seem largely split on whether or not his vision is worth your time. Michael Rechtshaffen of The Hollywood Reporter is clearly smitten with the film, calling it “truly, madly wonderful,” and a “whimsically appointed dazzler.”

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times is a bit less fawning, but still gives the film three out of four stars. Ebert also praises the performance of Johnny Depp. “[He’s] that rare actor who can treat the most bizarre characters with perfect gravity.” Filmcritic.com’s Christopher Null didn’t like the movie nearly as much, giving it just two out of five stars. However, he did go out of his way to praise Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the Red Queen. In Null’s estimation, she “steals the show.”

And with apologies to Captain Jack, Mr. Null isn’t the only critic who feels that Bonham Carter is the movie’s true star. Manhola Dargis of The New York Times writes that Bonham Carter “rocks the house and the movie.” E! Online’s Matt Stevens calls the actor’s performance “wickedly funny.” Is it possible that Mr. Depp, one of the all-time great scene-stealers, was upstaged himself?

But the acting is only one part of the movie. And more than a few critics feel that the total is less than the sum of its parts. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly gives the movie a “C” and describes it as “…murky, diffuse, and meandering…” Finally, The New York Post’s Lou Lumenick awards “Alice” with two and a half out of four stars and calls it an “often ponderous fantasy.”

So there it is some reviews that you have to read.  Critics love and it and some hate it.  Johnny Depp is totally the man so it is cool that we get to see him in action again.

    Did you know that Johnny Depp has 13 tattoos, many of them signifying important persons or events in his life. They include a Native American in profile and a ribbon reading “Wino Forever” (originally “Winona Forever”, altered after his breakup with Winona Ryder) on his right biceps, “Lily-Rose” (his daughter’s name) over his heart, “Betty Sue” (his mother’s name) on his left biceps, and a sparrow flying over water with the word “Jack” (his son’s name; the sparrow is flying towards him rather than away from him as it is in Pirates of the Caribbean) on his right forearm.
