True stories dominate this year's competition
"Alice in Wonderland"
Pros: Only one of six films in history to hit $1 billion worldwide. Three ("Avatar," "Titanic," "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King") were nominated for best picture and another, "Toy Story 3," should get nominated this year. Overall, those are pretty good odds and pretty good company.
Cons: The reviews weren't that great and it certainly wasn't the most beautiful 3-D. It's a reach for sure.
