Thursday Movie Picks: Secret Doorways / Worlds

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we venture through secret doorways and into secret worlds!

#1 The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

Through the wardrobe and straight to Narnia, a fairy tale land is where my first pick takes us.

#2 Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is probably the most obvious and iconic pick for the topic and I’m pretty sure many others thought to include it today!

#3 Pan’s Labyrinth

Another weird and magical realm we get to check out via Pan’s Labyrinth!

  1. This Alice is probably the best take on the story because of the freedom of animation to expand on the tale’s mad ideas.

    Pan’s Labyrinth never occurred to me but it’s a super choice! Weird, unsettling but brilliant in its way.

    I’ve seen a TV version of Lion, Witch….with Pam Dawber years ago but never this one.

    I also chose a version of Alice in Wonderland but its more notable for who’s in it than it’s sometimes clunky execution.

    Alice in Wonderland (1933)-Alice (Charlotte Henry) goes down the rabbit hole and tumbles into a crazy world where Cary Grant is the Mock Turtle, Gary Cooper the White Knight, W.C. Fields Humpty Dumpty, Edward Everett Horton the Mad Hatter and a raft of familiar but less famous performers other characters.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 (2011)-The final two films in the Potter series and perhaps the best find Harry, Hermione and Ron battling Voldemort to destroy the Horcruxes.

    Peter Pan (1953)-Animated Disney film where the magical boy Peter Pan and the faithful Tinkerbell whisk the Darling children off to the enchanted world of Neverland where they help him battle the wicked pirate Captain Hook.

  2. Narnia is a big favourite this week and I have to see all 3. I have yet to see this Disney version of Alice..Carroll did love his drugs:) I Love, love, love Pan’s Labyrinth which is so beautiful, sinister, hopeful and dark. That freak with the one eye makes my skin crawl every time.
