An Intro From Dave
A year ago I was tasked with a top secret mission. Melanie: I want a list for next July. Like the opposite of everybody else’s “Christmas in July”. Something with a “Dave spin” on it. So my mind went to work. It almost took on several different incarnations before landing here. It could have Christmas Horror. It could have been Halloween themed. Then it started as a random list of movies that got buried in the sands of time that people forgot. That's actually our specialty. But I also included a few that made money but seemed to have been forgotten since then, as I haven’t heard much about them since their release. So hop in, buckle your seatbelt, and remember to keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
Day 30 - Alice (Syfy mini series) (2009) - Dave
This is an interesting take on the Alice in Wonderland story taking place about 150 years later in a modernized and fantasized, futuristic world. Some great updates though.
Jenn Says - "Alice in Wonderland" or just "Alice" as this movie is known, is a remake or retelling of that famous story. Though this one takes a stranger turn than usual. It’s more modern day with almost punk twist, at least their version of the mad hatter looks more punk to me, and not your normal way that he usually looks. Well if you’ve seen all the original retellings of the classic tale, and you want something different for it then "Alice" is your story. It was very underrated so I'm not sure if many have actually heard of it.
Melanie Says - Definitely one of the best adaptations out there and so full of star power. I adore Andrew Lee Potts (although I found this after I knew him from Primeval and then True Bloodthirst) and he is a fabulous Hatter! Throw in Kathy Bates and Tim Curry and really what have you got to lose?!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
