Movies Seen: Alice in Wonderland, The A-Team

A 2010 film. Directed by Tim Burton, who is way off on this one. A spin-off/sequel that both follows and combines story elements from the books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, this film takes us 10 years into the future, where Alice, now 20, returns to Wonderland to save it's innocent inhabitants from an evil queen. Boring.

A 2010 film. Directed by Joe Carnahan. Based on the T.V series, 4 incredible men come together, perform amazing feats no one else can or wants to, get framed, and break out of jail to prove their innocence.

An action-packed film with a ridiculous story and out of this world action sequences that don't make a lot of sense. You can tell that the writers have taken pains to add a bit of edge to the script, to prevent it from being cliched, and have succeeded to some extent, but at the cost of even more logical narrative. O.K for timepass purposes.

Plus, it seems like Liam Neeson is in everything these days.
