This remake of Planet of the Apes can't compare to the original in some critics' mind, but the striking visuals and B-movie charms may win you over. Planet of the Apes Photos View All Photos 20 Movie Info This big budget "re-imagining" of the original departs somewhat from both that classic science fiction film and the source novel by author Pierre Boulle.
Ever since the book was published, there have been numerous adaptations made after it, among the most recent being the Disney film Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton.
The Disney film is loosely based on the popular novel as well as its sequel Through the Looking Glass.
The obvious changes made to the story, combined with the distinct design of Burton, generated a great deal of controversy as critics accused that the version was too significantly untrue to the spirit of the original works.
Additionally, Burton adds his signature nightmare approach to the film. Rather than staying true to the original text, he uses significant characters borrowed from the Alice books to create an entirely new narrative or it can be seen as a continuation of the Alice books.
In the film Burton explores the question: What if Alice returned to Wonderland when she was older? As a result, he addresses the struggle of identity, as well as place and meaning in the experience of growing up.
She feels increasingly uncertain about who she is, as she is reshaped according to the wishes of others and is contemplating a marriage proposal to a pretentious, titled young man she does not love. Alice enters Underland via IMDB When she must make the decision as to whether she will become engaged to the ridiculous man, she sees the White Rabbit and runs after it.
Alice falls down the rabbit hole, in one of the only scenes highly reminiscent of the book, and finds herself not in the bright Wonderland of her dreams, but in the twisted, barren world known as Underland. At the conclusion of the film, a climactic battle scene follows, taking place on a chess board surrounded by the opposing card soldiers of the Red and White Queens two sisters at odds for the rule of Underland.
After slaying the monster and giving the rule of Underland back to the good White Queen, Alice returns to Victorian society a changed woman. As such, Burton creates a the desolate and depressing world of Underland, highlighting only the negative undertones of the original stories.
Moreover, the Jabberwocky itself is only mentioned briefly in a poem in Through the Looking-Glass, while the presence of the Jabberwocky is central to the conflict and progression of the film. As a result, Burton establishes a clear struggle between good and evil that, while it helps the adult Alice mature into the strong young woman, seems disconnected from the nonsensical spirit of the novels.
