Just Like Chicken Noodle Soup

Alice In Wonderland is to my eyes as chicken soup is to the teenage soul: MMM mm GOOD!  This movie was some spectacle, some visual, vibrant hour and 50 minutes.  First off, let’s talk about Helena Bonham Carter.  Who is she? Why is she so amazing?  I’m not questioning her.  I’ve fallen in love and just need an explanation.  She is so quirky and great as this mean, despised and emotionally scarred Red Queen.  She brought humanity and humor to an unrelatable character.  This woman is a blessing to her profession.  OK, also, speaking of blessings, Johnny Depp.  I love him.  You love him.  Let’s face it—he gon’ be sexy no matter what kind of mess he puts on, gets into and falls out of.  He was brilliant, of course.

Oh! And! I want this armor that Mia Wasikowska wears in Wonderland during her combat scene.  Yes, metal has its problems, but if it was in ready-to-wear form, I’d be all over it.  Pair it with some black skinny jeans and strappy heels and you’d make a strong, fearless fashion statement at a night out on the town.
