Digital Home’s top pick on Blu-ray this week is “Alice in Wonderland,” Tim Burton's version of the Lewis Caroll classic which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Mia Wasikowska as the title character.
In the film, Alice is now nineteen years old and accidentally returns to Underland (misheard by Alice and believed to be called Wonderland), a place she visited thirteen years previously.
She is told that she is the only one who can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon-like creature controlled by the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) who terrorizes Underland's inhabitants.
The film which combines live action and animation was the highest grossing film of 2010 and according to Box Office Mojo is now the sixth highest-grossing film of all time. Reviews for the film were mixed and holds a 62% approval rating among Rotten Tomatoes Top Critics.
