For the second week in a row, Alice in Wonderland was the box-office leader, pulling in $62 million. I haven’t seen it yet, but I think I want to. I’m just worried that after the first 15 minutes I’ll get bored with how beautiful it is and be like, “Oh, yeah, it’s the Alice in Wonderland story, who cares?” Let me know if you’ve seen it and what you thought. Worth seeing in theaters or wait for DVD?
Matt Damon’s Green Zone was the second-biggest draw, with $14.5 million domestically. As a giant Matt Damon fan, I saw this on Friday, and it was decent. As far as Matt Damon action movies go, it was kind of so-so. Like, the premise of the entire movie is “George Bush is intentionally lying about the presence of WMDs in Iraq.” Which, true or not, is kind of an overplayed concept. I was waiting for the exciting and creative twist, but it didn’t come. However: Matt Damon looked really, really good the whole time. Matt Damon should wear Army fatigues everywhere he goes. I may get easily bored of Johnny Depp looking like Carrot Top in a giant hat, but I will never tire of Matt Damon dressed in Army fatigues. If Matt Damon ever does a movie where he plays a fireman I will probably
kill his wife in a jealous blackout go see it.
