If you are looking for something to do with your family on this three day weekend, I highly recommend going to your local movie theater and watching Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass. I was blown away by this movie. I heard someone say that if you LOVED the first movie, you will LOVE this sequel. If you didn’t love the first movie, you will LOVE the sequel. It truly is phenomenal. Everything from the look, design, story, characters and the acting will keep you interested and engaged the entire movie. My favorite part is that it is truly a movie that a whole family will love. Boys and girls of all ages will come out of this movie ranting and raving about their favorite parts.
Costume and Design
I am a very visual person. I love movies that are beautiful. There is so much detail in Alice Through the Looking Glass. I think that I could watch this movie a dozen more times and each time discover new details that they added to the movie. I love the bright color pallet that they used in their set and costumes. It really adds to the abstractness of the film. I loved looking and each different scene and seeing the incredible costumes that each different character was wearing. It really is stunning.
Who doesn’t love a movie filled with adventure!! Alice through the looking glass is filled with all kinds of excitement and adventure. My kids had the opportunity to pre-screen this movie and they loved the excitement of this movie. They still talk about the different scenes and how fun they are. They are excited to see it again this weekend.
I will be honest. When I first heard that they cast Sacha Baron Cohen I was a little hesitant. Oh my goodness. His performance as time is absolutely incredible. He was probably one of my favorite characters in the movie. I love when a movie teaches important lessons and a lot of amazing things are learned from his character Time. Where this movie is adventurous and fun, it is also a thinker and it will leave you taking a look at your life and how you spend your time. What an amazing actor and he nailed his role in this movie. I’m excited to hear what you think.
Friendship is so important. As a mom, I always want my kids to be surrounded by good friends. Alice Through the Looking glass teaches an amazing lesson on friendship. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so make sure and keep a look out for this theme in the movie. I found with my kids, that it was a great conversation starter about friendship in their life and how important loyalty is.
Isn’t it wonderful when a movie is filled with so many beautiful themes? I came out of this movie feeling really inspired to be a better person. There is so much strength and love in families that truly make life better. Alice is such a strong character. She has a strong sense of who she is. It was amazing to see her growth between the two movies, but so neat to see her continue to grow and learn through the sequel.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this movie. With all caps and all bolded, loved it! Alice Through the Looking Glass has so much heart and really is so much fun. The acting is really very good and the story is so much fun. Everyone in my family gave it two thumbs up. ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is now playing in theaters everywhere!
ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS opens in theaters everywhere on May 27th!
This amazing trip to Los Angeles was hosted by Disney. All opinions are my own.
