Alice in Wonderland... finally. It was good. Pretty sure I read the book as a kid. Now I want to read it again, and it's sequel.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Do you mean the current movie? It really didn't follow the book; takes place 10 years later. Same characters, but very different situations. And the whole Victorian meme was a big disconnect.

Yes, the new movie. I know it didn't follow the book. But I should know the story how it should be, right? It was pretty entertaining to me. Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter kinda reminded me of Captain Jack Sparrow, but I am not sure why. Reasons then both characters being played by the same actor I mean.

Young Victoria. I liked it and then I felt like it came to an abrupt ending.

I'm in the mood for silly romcoms. The sort of thing Jennifer Aniston stars in. (This only happens about once every three years). Any recommendations?
