ALICE IN WONDERLAND (PG) 2 stars
PLOT Tim Burton has wisely avoided producing a mere pop-up illustration of Lewis Carroll's books, instead finding inspiration in Alice (Mia Wasikowska), the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and other familiar characters and putting them into a brand-new story. His most nervy decision - making Alice a 19-year-old young woman on the verge of a tiresome marriage - also proves to be his best.

THE WOLFMAN (R) 2 stars
PLOT Benicio Del Toro's creepy transformation from man to beast is the highlight of an otherwise uninspired remake of the 1941 horror classic starring Lon Chaney Jr. as the poor sucker who becomes a werewolf after being bitten by one.
