Alice Through the Looking Glass

Oh, what a deliciously horrific idea this movie was!

Considering that a sequel to Tim Burton's 2010 ludicrously profitable "Alice in Wonderland" has been inevitable since that movie crossed $1 billion at the global box office, the only surprising thing about "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is that it took so long. Perhaps Disney was giving audiences a reprieve, or perhaps they were just allowing us enough time to forget how unpleasant the first film was, plying us with quality in the meantime. "Here, have a good new 'Star Wars' movie. Enjoy 'The Jungle Book.' Pay no mind to the ominous storm clouds that are gathering above the world's multiplexes. Relax, it will all be over soon."
