For Those Who Wonder if “Alice in Wonderland” is Worth Watching
Tim Burton’s“Alice in Wonderland” was probably the most anticipated movie of the year 2010. But is it any good? First of all, I should probably mention that hardcore Lewis Carroll fans may find very disappointing. The movie is merely based on the book. It features most of the same characters and a couple of the same locations, but the story is completely different. Alice is no longer a little girl, but an unconventional young woman who has the same dream of finding herself in Wonderland every night, until one day it happens in real life. Her arrival was expected. Alice is supposed to save the inhabitants from the evil Red Queen and get the reign back to her kind sister, the White Queen. She knows nothing about it, but she is meant to be the knight in shining armor, both figuratively and literally speaking.
Beautiful Mind is a biographical movie about John Forbes Nash junior, mathematical genius with hard fate. At the beginning of his career he has made enormous contribution in the field of Game Theory, which was a revolution in this mathematical area and almost brought international fame to the author. The movie was filmed in 2001 by Ron Howard and today it is called modern classics: a true drama, making you think and evoking emotions.
Such movies, telling us about the life of a famous person, are always difficult to assess, because any such creations somehow pretend to be biographical ones. But in fact they are just a glance of one particular producer on the life of another individual. Of course, much depends on the actor who will perform the role of the protagonist and after watching Beautiful Mind I will agree with this once again.

Legion is a movie by Scott Charles Stewart, which appeared in the cinemas all around the world in January, 2010. According to the IMDB, the movie got rating of 5 (out of 10), which means an average result. Still, let us consider it in details.
The film is not an ordinary one for today’s cinematograph. First of all, you will not see any top famous actors and actresses in the cast. Then, there are no much graphical effects in this movie. Nevertheless, it is not as important as the story itself and what creators wanted to say to the audience. Legion gives you a reason to think about the world you live in and your role in it. It shows the life as it is – with all the events happening around to each one of us. The story is about choice and the fact that everyone has to make it. You will never be 100% sure what is right and what is wrong – no one knows where the truth is, because there is actually no truth.
