This was a beautiful and inspiring love story of our time. I’m not kidding. (She did martial arts and was on a man-saving mission! He ran a secret revolution from his tea shop!)
guys i have to tell u about how great this movie/show is
basically this girl isn’t alice, her name is alice and everyone thinks she’s the first one who comes to wonderland. she isn’t though, but she ends up in wonderland through a series of spoilers and wonderland is FUCKED UP
wonderland is set up that they steal humans from the real world (called oysters) and harvest their ‘pearl’. basically they take these humans and put them in a giant casino where people feel various emotions (ecstasy, dissapointment, terror, etc), and these emotions are harvested.
these emotions are then sold as tea to the civillians of wonderland - to mollify them since everyone hates the government this is how they keep them complacent in the system.
of course the hero (alice) comes in, and basically fucks shit up, saves wonderland, sees her father again, the ‘girl who stole her man’ is humanized, the acting is great, and there is an adorable old knight who is the best comedic relief ever.
this show is the only thing that has come close to the brilliance of the original, and brings in its own individuality
this movie/show is like someone came in and filmed your favourite dreams.
i highly recommend watching this
That. And I also like that they did the “Omg, get this, Alice in Wonderland, but dystopia” without going “Omg, let’s make it all dark and twisted looking”. Which is fine but, it get’s done a lot.
Case in point, the Queen’s super secret police ride hot pink flying flamingo bikes, seen here being hijacked by Hatter and Alice.
Everything in the movie is bright and vibrant, oh, and their Jabberwock actually looks like the jabberwocky:
I love many, many versions of Alice in Wonderland, but Syfy’s is my favourite re-interpretation.
