Green Zone & Alice in Wonderland

It has been very long that I gave myself a movie day.

Suffering from very severe cold - I don't know what the heck but I got this flu 10 days ago and haven't got recovered. I've never had gone this bad before.

Anyway, I called in sick but went to these 2 movies: Green Zone and Alice in Wonderland (3D).I usually get movie info from IMDb:

Director: Paul Greengrass
Writers (WGA):
Brian Helgeland (written by)Rajiv Chandrasekaran (book)
Release Date: 25 March 2010 (South Korea)
Genre: Action Drama Thriller War
My Credit: 4 stars - very interesting to see the insight of the Iraq War and confused with the truth.
Plot:
Following the American invasion of Iraq in 2003 Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller and his men are charged with finding the so-called weapons of mass destruction,whose existence justified American involvement,according to the Pentagon and their man in Baghdad,Poundsgate. Veteran CIA operative Marty tells Miller that there are no weapons,it is a deception to allow the Americans to take over the country and install a puppet leader. Marty correctly anticipates that,despite Bush's gung-ho assurances, the policy is doomed to failure. Also suspicious of Poundsgate is Wall Street Journal reporter Lawrie Dayne,who lets slip to Miller that Poundsgate told her he had secret talks in Jordan with an important Iraqi,code-named Magellan,who told him about the weapons, though it now seems likely Magellan's true information was to the contrary. Miller deduces that Magellan is General Al Rawi, a close supporter of the deposed Saddam Hussain and, accompanied by his interpreter, Freddy, a decent Iraqi who only wants stability for his country, sets out to track down Al Rawi. However, Poundsgate's men are also on Al Rawi's trail,to stop him from talking.


Director: Tim Burton
Writers (WGA):
Linda Woolverton (screenplay)Lewis Carroll (books)
Release Date: 4 March 2010 (South Korea)
Genre: Adventure Family Fantasy
My Credit: 2 and half stars - although it's 3D, there wasn't much impression about 3D after watching the Avatar. What pleased me the most was Johnny Depp working with Tim Burton. I wasn't quite amused by his creativity, either. The ticket price is double of the normal.
Plot:
19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.
