Post Go Watch Alice
Go Watch Alice
Lewis Carroll's classic gets remixed and re-engineered in a new miniseries.
By Troy Patterson

From this review this movie on the 'Syfy' channel sounds to lack imagination. The wonderland portal ring sounds like a weak copy of Tolkein's one ring to rule them all, and where Lewis Carroll gave us crackling myths which have only grown in power, this show is just another tired dystopia.

Apparently 'syfy' is the new "cool" name for the channel formerly known as Sci Fi, and means piles of stinking rubbish in Polish.

It is kind of a boring watch. The aim was to make it more futuristic with wonderland being a modernized city but it lacked I think due to the director's attempts to reinvent everything.

Thanks, I wasn't aware that this miniseries even existed! Seems worth checking out, especially with a new movie coming out as well.
