Alice Through the Looking Glass: Film Review

alice2

My reaction to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland was distinctly average – it was ‘meh’, alright but forgettable – so I wasn’t massively looking forward to this sequel, which has taken a big six-year gap and switched directors from Tim Burton to James Bobin. The box office takings were huge, but this sequel still feels unwarranted.

Skyfall premiere: My Pics

The stars of the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, hit the red carpet for the world premiere at The Royal Festival Hall in London.

Lead actor Daniel Craig was friendly and tried to cover the whole crowd while Javier Bardem and Dame Judi Dench disappointed by only doing a select few so I didn’t see them up close. I didn’t even see Judi’s face!

Newcomer Berenice Marlohe, who plays Severine, made a real effort to see everyone (she also looked gorgeous) which is completely different to Naomie Harris who didn’t see many people and I didn’t like her dress very much at all. Other cast members such as Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Sam Mendes came the effort too.

There were a lot of other celebrities there including old Miss Moneypenny, Samantha Bond, old Bond girls which I personally didn’t recognise, Christopher Lee, Colin Salmon, Stephen Fry, Russell Kane, Kelly Brook, Victoria Pendleton, Ellie Simmonds, JLS, Rizzle Kicks, Tulisa and The X Factor 2012 contestants. Besides Colin Salmon, the rest of the list didn’t sign for many people at all and headed straight inside which was disappointing.

I’ve realised since coming home that there are plenty of celebrities that I’ve missed and that is so gutting. Especially Dermot O’Leary and Aaron Johnson. But it was so busy on the red carpet and so crazy in the crowds that I’m not surprised. Also, not impressed that Rachel Weisz didn’t come onto the red carpet herself and she met her husband Craig backstage.

Here are my personal pictures. They aren’t of the best quality because everything and everyone was constantly moving!
