Oz the great and powerful is terrible

28 posts in this topic

Saw it last night, and it was decent. Not great, but not bad. Reviews on it were about right for a change as it got a 62% fresh rating on Rotten tomatoes.

Ive got a secret for you.

Its a movie aimed at prepubescent kids. Acting was trumped by silly story and minimally acceptable visual effects.

Im more disappointed in the people who are acting like this was going to be anything more than an excuse for Disney to shoot some 3D sequences for one of their amusement park rides .

Ah, it wasn't that bad. Didn't blow me away - pardon the pun - but I thought it was decent.

It actually made me want to read all of the Baum "Oz" books.

don't be mad at the movie or the people that made it.

be mad at yourself for going to see it.

also i have a historic bridge in NYC i can sell you for pennies on the dollar. otherwise the city is going to demolish it.

Wait a sec. Someone thought it'd be good?

My bad didn't mean to give the impression I actually payed to see it. Nah i watched it online for free. However i'm not so mad at the story as just Mila Kunis for destroying my favorite villan. She sounded absolutely terrible just looked like an absolute moron trying to do the part and I will be forever pissed at her for that pathetic excuse for the wicked witch of the west.

You're my boy and all, but the Wicked Witch of the West is your favorite villain of all time?

FTR....I never liked Wizard of Oz to begin with to be honest.

When I was a kid I was pretty poor and only had a few vhs tapes and that was one of them. I watched it everyday before bed and as I grew older I began to appreciate what a movie made in the 30/40s had accomplished looking better than most movies that were made 30 years later so it made me like it even more. And that laugh from Margaret Hamilton (actress for WWoW) was so good. It's almost like comparing jack nicholson to heath ledger. I prefer the goofy laugh to the evil laugh so his bothered me as well but his was actually good despite that. Kunis was just terrible all around. Also they didn't have the bad ass chant the WWotW army had in the old one.

I think a lot of that was copywritten by MGM and Disney couldn't use them...but they of course went ahead with the movie anyway. lol
