25 Things {Alice in Wonderland Style}…

I realize this movie came out awhile back, but I have a huge fascination with it.  Or any Tim Burton movie for that matter.  Genius of a director!  Some random thoughts and quotes from the movie:

  • It took me 4 times to watch this movie before I understood the storyline.
  • Not sure I still understand it!
  • She’s “not hardly” Alice.
  • You are you, but the wrong you (“wrong Alice”).
  • “You ought to know who you are, stupid girl.” ~Absalom
  • The worm fella is strange.
  • “He’s wise. He’s absolute. He’s Absalom.”
  • Underland vs Wonderland.
  • Huh?
  • Favorite line of the movie: “Lost my muchness have I?”
  • What in the world is a Jabberwocky and a Vorpal Sword?
  • “If it ain’t Vorpal, it ain’t dead.”
  • Johnny Depp & Helena Bonham Carter rock my world in this movie.
  • “This is impossible…Only if you think it is.”
  • What is a looking glass?
  • “Down with the bloody big head”
  • “You’re entirely bonkers.  But I’ll tell you a secret.  All the best people are..”
  • Back-to-front world of a looking glass…
  • Why don’t I understand this movie?
  • Bandersnatch.
  • Frabjous Day.
  • Fudderwaken.
  • Are you kidding me?  Is this English?
  • “Have you any idea why a raven is a like a writing desk?”
  • And yes … I cried at the end.

What is your take on this movie?

I will leave you with this video clip {Avril Lavigne’s ‘Alice’}   ♥ This Song!

Until next time…
