Alice In Wonderland (1951) [Disney Animated]

This is my final Dream of the Week review. The entire movie takes place in a dream so I think it qualifies. Young Alice falls asleep during a boring history lesson and chases a white rabbit down the hole and then ventures into Wonderland. That is the movie in a nutshell now let’s break it down for my review. Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece was creatively written and wonderfully animated. The characters were creative and the storyline well written. Disney changes a few things from the book but not enough to make it any less fun. This movie was fun. It was full of creative characters and filled with singing and dancing flowers animals and even talking doorknobs. This is fun for the whole family and can even be enjoyed by boys. I enjoyed it and I am simply a boy who refuses to grow up. Alice in Wonderland is one of Disney’s most popular movies as it should be. It was short and sweet at an hour and fifteen minutes and the perfect picture to watch on a morning when you wake up at 3am. I watched this movie with great affection. It was the most creative film I've seen in a long time and may be on my lists of movies to add to my Netflix queue again. I enjoyed it from start to finish and gladly give my highest praise. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
