1.0 out of 5 stars The Truth is in the Poetry, March 22, 2010
This review is from: Alice in Wonderland (DVD)
"How yet this dark and lonely night
About us tempts and teases;
How, too, this ever-waning light
So thoroughly displeases..."

So proclaims the Queen of Hearts in her final soliloquy to the doomed Knave of Hearts in J.T. Holden's masterful retelling of the Lewis Carroll classic, appropriately entitled Alice in Verse: The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland. These mournful words could just as easily be attributed to the bewildered moviegoer who has shelled out good money for Tim Burton's spectacle-without-substance sequel to that same Carroll classic. As the credits roll and the truth settles in, it is the advice of the wily Cheshire Cat in Holden's book that haunts with its greater truth:

"If you really must go, then it's best you should know
That to find you need only to seek--
But in seeking and finding, you may need reminding,
Once found, is what's sought worth a peek?"

This is an excellent review. Your wit and bluntness are far more entertaining than this trash was.
