Your eyes never fail to light up whenever you come across Snow-white and her adorable dwarfs, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and the numerous prince and princesses, be it in a children-book, a poster or the label on a bottle of Honey (imploring you to buy it because Pooh Bear recommends it!)
Lewis Carroll and his story of Alice falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland has been and will be a strong favourite with us. Which right minded Dawg wouldn’t love Wonderland?
Imagine being able to run free and wild in that beautiful land, not to speak of running after a March-Hare, door-mice, bumble-bees and a SMILING(!) Cat.
Considering that I am almost 5 and Ginger is almost 4 (which is 35 and 28 years in Human-Years), we thought we would be over this story by now. In fact there have been insinuating remarks from a few acquaintances about the maturity levels (or the lack of it!) in our family because we all (Mummy and Daddy included) love Fairies and Butterflies and Pink Clouds and Blue-caterpillars and Lavender Roses!!
But we couldn’t care less. Mummy says Fairy-Tales epitomises the child in you and there is nothing wrong in preserving a little bit of that. In fact, it makes you happier.
We dawgs, we think are much better at doing that than hoomans. Don’t we always find joy in the simplest and littlest of things in life?
So you guys can imagine our joy when Mummy told us we were going to watch ‘Alice in Wonderland’ today.
Our all time favourite story in a movie!!
We enjoyed it very, very much and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone who loves Lewis Caroll.
We even liked the Cheshire cat in the movie.
Mummy loved the Mad Hatter the best. We think he was pretty good too. She would have loved him even if he wasn’t, for the express reason that Johnny Depp portrayed this character! She thinks Depp is always wonderful portraying all eccentric, weird, difficult and wondrous characters.
Well, she thinks Depp is always wonderful, Period.
Anne Hathaway looks Oh! So lovely as the White Queen. Mummy is still Ooohing and Ahhhing over her gowns!
Mia as Alice, of course, was just perfect!
You cannot forget the Blue catter-pillar. He is so overbearing, reminds you of Professor Snape and that depressed robot in 'The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy'!!
We loved the colourful, outrageously imaginary images of Wonderland.
Like in Alice’s dreams, these images are going to be in our memory forever.
In fact, after the movie, Mummy is in such a wistful frame of mind we thought she would like this picture.
Believe in the Fairies
that make Dreams come true.
Believe in the wonder of the Star and the Moon,
Believe in the Magic
from the Fairies Above,
They dance on the flowers
and sing songs of Love,
And if you just believe and always stay true,
The Fairies will be there to watch over You.
The above picture and the poem that accompanies it is from a poster she plans to get framed but is currently safely preserved in her store-room like many others!
All the other pictures were sniffed out by Google. Hope you like them and they inspire you to watch the movie soon, if you haven't already!
