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

Only Lovers Left Alive

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Director:

Jim Jarmusch

Starring:

Tilda Swinton

Tom Hiddleston

Mia Wasikowaska

Plot:

A depressed musician reunites with his lover, though their romance – which has already endured several centuries – is disrupted by the arrival of uncontrollable younger sister.

Review:

The movie makes you realize how amazing the makeup was for Tilda Swinton in Snowpiercer. She looks completely different.

Anyway, back on topic. I was in the perfect mood to receive this movie. Depressed. It’s slow moving with tons of music and historical references. There isn’t much of a story, it’s more like a glimpse into the lives of Adam and Eve. The vampires Adam and Eve.

There’s no action, mild violence, language, and boobies. Tilda Swinton boobs.

It was entertaining, but not my normal type of movie. I think the mood I was in really helped me enjoy this better. Adam, Tom Hiddleston, was depressed and his wife came to help him out of it. Naturally her sister came and ruined everything, but they just continued on with their lives and moved on.

The movie appealed to how I was feeling but I’m not sure if I would recommend it.

3/5
