This year- Days two hundred sixty six and sixty seven. (Alice in Yogurtland)
Doh! I have been so busy since I've been out here that I keep forgetting about this thing.
Two things I enjoyed yesterday- Alice in Wonderland and Yogurtland. Yogurtland is like 100x better than pinkberry. Yogurtland forever!
Alice in Wonderland was sweet and super girl-power-y and clever. I liked it. We did not bother with 3D and I don't think that it mattered.
I realize that I am often a Tim Burton enthusiast no matter what he does but I think this was much better than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (which should have been better!). I am also not married to the Alice in Wonderland literature at all so any new story in that vein, doesn't bother me at all. Lewis Carroll was by many accounts a creepy guy who did creepy things with kids but he did create an interesting mythology. I liked that this movie just created a whole new story within that mythology.
I did miss the human sized chess battle that I remember from when I was a kid. Mainly because I am enthralled by human sized chess. At the mall in Burbank they used to have human sized chess and one day Megan Pants and I sat on a bench and had Dairy Queen while we watched people play for hours. What an excellent day that was.
