Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

Director:

James Bobin

Starring:

Mia Wasikowska

Johnny Depp

Helena Bonham Carter

Plot:

Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to help the Mad Hatter.

Review:

If you liked the first movie, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t like this one. Apparently, though, most people didn’t like this movie.

The story wasn’t as strong, but the characters were there and I liked seeing what Alice was getting into. It wasn’t overly realistic for a woman to be captain of a ship at her time, but nothing in the movie is overly realistic.

The score was great and one of the reasons I like these two movies.

Nothing really remarkable or bad about the movie.

3/5

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

Director:

James Bobin

Starring:

Ricky Gervais

Ty Burrell

Tina Fey

Plot:

While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick.

Review:

Danny Trejo was in a children’s musical. Seriously. Crazy.

The Muppets were a little bit before my time but I thought the last movie was cute.

Ty Burrell’s character was funny.

Ricky Gervais was, of course, a good bad guy. He’s basically made for those roles.

My daughter went crazy pounding the TV when the movie first started, so she seemed to enjoy it.

I didn’t really have any strong feelings either way for the movie.

3/5

 

Also OMG at Ricky Gervais in a lemur costume.
