    I have always been a huge fan of Alice in wonderland. From matching it to dark side of the moon on a acid trip to getting incredibly high with the wife and just sitting back and watching the magic.
    I'd say easily we watch it 3-4 times a year. I'm a huge fan to say the least.

    What about you Mayberry? Do you like Alice in wonderland? b24e40abf4d875b0519169228ddadae3.gif

    Watched it first time I ever took acid, to be honest it stressed me out more than anything

    I like the porn version from the 70s.

    Or maybe it was the 80s

    I loved it as a kid, one of my favorite movies. Read the books as an adult and liked them way more than I thought I would. I went back and watched the movie again and had mixed feelings. The movie combines scenes and characters from both books and leaves some stuff out. This is not a problem in and of itself and actually I think it's a good way to adapt the books.

    Watching it relatively soon after reading the books I found some scenes to be very well adapted and others not so much. For example the cheshire cat was done perfectly, but twiddle dee and twiddle dum, while being maybe the funniest part of both books, I thought were rather annoying in the movie, and their song was terrible. Overall though I still thought it was a very good movie and quite faithful to the books despite combing the two together into one story. I think the nonsensical nature of the story and world keeps the mixing the two books from being incoherent. Still one of the best disney animated movies with some great music. This Bill Evans take on the main theme is one of my favorite recordings:



    Anyone seen any other adaptations they want to recommend? There's one with a Ravi Shankar score that looks interesting.

    There is actually a really good adaptation for television version from 1999 with Martin Short, Christopher Lloyd, Gene Wilder, Robbie Coltrane and others. I wasn't expecting much for a t.v. movie but this was actually pretty good.

    Jan Švankmajer's "Alice" is a combination of live action and stop motion animation. Probably not for everyone but I enjoyed it.

    Cool, I'll check it out. Gene Wilder as the mock turtle and Ben Kingsely as the caterpillar is some rather brilliant casting.

    I have actually seen the Czech Alice. It's really great, I prefer it to the disney version. Anyone who thinks the disney version is creepy should give that one a watch.
