DCRJ's MOVIE REVIEWS in Snippets (March 4 to March 9, 2010)

We saw ALICE IN WONDERLAND (2010) in 3D in a Digital Cinema at the SM Mall of Asia Sunday March 7, 2010. The movie is actually a sequel of the classic animated Walt Disney film of the same title which was released in 1951. In the 2010 version by Tim Burton, Alice now an adolescent revisited 'Wonderland' still being ruled by the wicked Red Queen of hearts. All the classic characters from the animated film are there including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, Chesire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum etc. except for one, the White Queen. Alice learns her true purpose of revisiting 'Wonderland', to end the Red Queen's reign of terror. The environments, although CGI, are made in motif seen in any Tim Burton films. If you're a movie buff, you'll immediately recognize Tim Burton's style in terms of mood, design and visual elements. The film is an artistic accomplishment. Movie magic at its best, the best part is that it's in 3D which enhances your viewing pleasure. My ratings: 5 out of 5 Biscuits of course ! Lewis Carol would have loved this 2010 film version.

I just finished watching PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL 'PUSH' BY SAPPHIRE (2009) whew! that's a long title. Obviously a low-budget movie about an African-American girl who got impregnated by her father twice, emotionally and physically abused by her mother. Magnificent performances by the casts Gabourey Sidibe as Precious and Mo’Nique as the mother. I won't be surprise if either of them will win in the upcoming Oscars this Monday March 8, 2010 Philippine time! My ratings : 4 out 5 Biscuits. An unglamorous Mariah Carey is also in the movie.

I just finished watching AMELIA (2009). An historical account of Amelia Earhart, played to near perfection by Hilary Swank, first woman to cross the Atlantic ocean in a single flight. The film highlighted Amelia's accomplishment but fails to dramatize Amelia herself as an individual. The film focuses on the love triangle which drags in certain scenes but the cinematography is gloriously magnificent. BTW, I can't help but notice Richard Gere's phony southern accent. My ratings: 2 out of 5 Biscuits !
