We all seen Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland and we either love it or we hate it. And that is what it is with ALL films anyone makes but this second film about Alice was not a disappointment. Enjoyable as the first one.
Alice is now an adult and it’s been many years since she came to Wonderland and spent time with her friends and fellow heroes. When Alice comes back home after expedition she finds herself – rejected and ridiculed by her former suitor. So Alice does what she does – she finds a way to Wonderland. But this time, it’s not the land who need her – it’s her dear friend Hatter. He is fading away, wanting his family back from the dead. So, what does Alice? She goes to Father Time, steals a machine from him to travel in time to save his family. But she can’t change the past, but she can observe and find out what actually happened that horrible day when Hatter’s family died.
A film filled with laughter, sadness, adventure and suspense it’s a treat to anyone above 7/8 years of age. Tim Burton simply cannot disappoint with this piece.

For some reason it took me a while to see this film so when I saw it on Netflix (yeah I know) I thought I’d watch it. And here we go.
Jean Valjean is the one of the main people in the film. For 19 years he’s been slaving for stealing bread for his sisters son so he wouldn’t starve to death. When he’s out and done with it his sentence he wants to start over and with starting over he have to run from the soldiers who will hunt him down. He changes his name and make the mayor of a town. One day he steps into the factory where Fantine works and rest of the girls rallies against her and finds herself thrown out and out of the street. Jean had asked the foreman to take care of the fight so he kicked her out. After a few weeks Jean finds Fantine out on the street where she is very ill and been selling herself so she can send money to an inkeep who takes care of her daughter. Do little does she know the inkeep isn’t very nice to little Cosette. One day Fantine pass away at the hospital and Jean promised to take care of Cosette and make sure she’s safe. And he keeps that promise.
The film itself is actually quite good – better than I thought. Since I usually don’t like musicals. But all the actors have done a fantastic job, even the children. So yeah, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it.
You see actors like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne and many more.
