Hollywood never tires of these stories because they tick two of the most important boxes in production. The Pan Debacle. The Frankenstein Atrocity.
And when was the last time someone gave us a good Shakespeare adaptation?
The trick to writing in this genre is you have to make it feel new. And if he gets the stone back to his mommy, it will allow her to destroy any reality — Oz, Wonderland, Neverland, even Earth! Once there, Dorothy stays at a special hospital for girls who have wild dreams like hers. Rose, believes that Oz exists. When Dr. Rose learns that the girls have escaped, she sends two of her men to neighboring Neverland through a Matrix-like contraption that allows people to jump into the dream world at will.
Petsch, Alice Dorothy
Dorthy and Alice travel across the magnificent Wonderland, only to get picked up by Princess Tiger Lilly, who whisks them off to Neverland. Spoiler alert. But, more importantly, when you write these movies, you risk slipping into CGI dependency, where the answer to your story problem becomes an enormous set piece on top of a giant rose with 50 foot monsters attempting to eat your hero.

I actually liked how this script began because it was character driven. I thought it was a really interesting question the author was posing — What is your life like three years after going through an incredible experience that nobody else believes you went through?

Imagine how frustrating that must be. I even liked it once we got London. Again, it was because the writer was forced to write real things. Just to be clear about what that means — I believe that readers are attracted to things that they can relate to in their own lives.
It mirrored the school experience everyone goes through. Once we get to Wonderland, all of that goes out the window. Something evil. Trapped in a psychiatric ward while dealing with her drug addiction, Alice finds an unlikely friend in Dorothy Gale, a girl who knows all about other worlds and the duality of life. Sweet, gentle Dorothy, who carries a stuffed dog named Toto and has a few secrets of her own. Now they are on the run, escaping vengeful drug dealers, trigger happy cops, and the horrors being created inside Alice's own shattered mind.
And while Dorothy clings to the promise of love as she chases a tornado across the country, Alice clings to her sanity, because the creature sharing her mind has a growing bloodlust that will not be denied.

I had huge expectations about this book seeing that it was so high rated at least when I noticed it and it crossovered the topics of Wonderland and Oz in real life context in an adult approach involving sex, drugs and murder. What else can one ask? And I have to admit that the reading experience was like a rollercoaster, since at some points I was sure that I will give it a full 5-star rating and at some other moments each lower possible rating and sometimes Insanely And I have to admit that the reading experience was like a rollercoaster, since at some points I was sure that I will give it a full 5-star rating and at some other moments each lower possible rating and sometimes gets higher again and later it gets lower, you get the picture.
I really believed that the first chapter is like a test, to see if you really want to get further into the novel since it has very kinky sex situations, careless use of drugs and gruesome bloody violence but most of all, it isn't written in any elegant way but very directly and raw.
At that point I was believing that it was a poor choice of reading since it seemed to be a vulgar book without class. At that point you still get only Alice, so I want to read at least to the meeting with Dorothy that I guessed was the whole point of the book. I was interested about the concept of two girls in a psychiatric ward believing that they are "Alice" from Wonderland and "Dorothy" from Oz. It was a thrilling idea. Wonderland was always linked with the topic of madness, however, Oz not so much, however there cases like the movie "Return to Oz" that while it wasn't too good, it was still interesting and logic to think that Dorothy maybe seemed to be crazy if she started to tell about her adventures with talking scarecrows and flying monkeys.
There is a very good approach on this book that I think it was one of his strongest points of originality. However, it wasn't enough that premise to hold the book and to present a decent tale. So far it seems that in the reality of this book, nobody heard about the books of Alice in Wonderland or The Wonderful Wizard of Oz , since both made several comments that anybody could sum two-plus-two and reaching to the realization of how crazy they must be Dorothy always is trying to hunt tornadoes to reach a magic land that she called "Oz", but nobody seems to think that something is odd here since her full name is Dorothy Gale and indeed she has an Aunt Em and an Uncle Henry.
Best proof that in the universe of this story, nobody heard before of those both classic tales. The personalities of Alice and Dorothy can be described using elements from their own books, since Dorothy is like the Cowardly Lion while Alice is like the Jabberwock. Dorothy is childish even since she is already an adult , sweet and shy.
‘Dorothy & Alice’ Acquired By Netflix For ‘I, Tonya’ Producer
Alice is insanely violent, unpredictable and totally wacko. Alice and Dorothy made a quick bond, even taking in account that in this book, Dorothy is lesbian, and while Alice isn't lesbian per se, she didn't mind about it. It's clear that she hasn't enjoying much the sex relationships with men so she is kinda open to the idea of accepting the feelings of Dorothy for her, also it's an easy way to manipulate her, to making her helping to escape from the hospital. Until then, the book was quite engaging, but on the road the story took a wrong turn OH, MY! When they are on the road, there a lot of bloody violence, some lesbian moments and tiny bits of drug using.
I think that the story could be developed in a better way since while the narrative has good timing and logic, it's presented in a crude way without much imagination or elegance.
Even I felt quite odd some comments in the story about not "glorify violence", but more like odd, like hypocrisy since the book is clear that it's been sold like a story of "sex, drugs and violence". So why trying to make such statements that they are totally out of place here? Also, something that I didn't like is that Alice is way more like the main protagonist, while Dorothy is lowered to a role like a sidekick.
Batman is the lead hero and Robin is a companion. It's that not only Dorothy is like a weakling sidekick without much utility in the story, but also, you don't get much of the elements and references of Oz , only some poor attempts here and there.
