Alice In Wonderland

Tim Burton’s quirky telling of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale is yet another film that wasn’t shot in 3D but was converted to 3D in post production. And it’s another fairly shonky 3D effort as a result. There are some quite interesting scenes; the final big battle enjoys a reasonably credible sense of space, and the sheer amount of fantastical objects Burton crams into his frames helps give many shots a palpable sense of depth.

But once again this sense of depth frequently looks forced and unnatural, and there are a number of sequences – including the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – where the 3D effect relies too heavily on an amateurishly simplistic Clash of the Titans-esque separation of the background from the foreground.
