Oz the Great and Powerful

Recommended Posts

Guest Sarah Faith

Well I don't usually go to the movies, or ever even recommend any especially when it comes to the whole 3D gimmick.. But I just got home from the theater went and saw Oz the Great and Powerful in IMAX 3D and I have to say it's a wonderful movie that I would recommend to anyone!

The movie is a prequel to the original Wizard of Oz and details how he became the Wizard in the first place, and it is very very well done. The story is very touching, the characters are all well done there was one character that Oz meets and it's this little girl made of china who I thought was just absolutely adorable. I don't want to give any of the movie away but it was definitely a feel good movie in the end, though it might be a little scary at times for little ones specifically some of the scenes with the Wicked Witches and their minions. There is very little violence or anything else parents might find questionable for their kids.

Though there were no children when I went today, the theater was mostly filled with other women having an afternoon out lol.

The visual effects in the movie are quite good as well, from the black and white opening, to the arrival in Oz its self with the incredible fantasy landscapes and vibrant colors. The special effects are also excellent and don't overpower the movie its self.

Like I said I don't recommend movies often to anyone but this one is a definite winner in my opinion, and I thought I would share!

Anyone else see this movie yet? Thoughts?

I'm really looking forward to seeing it, though I'm not a big Mila Kunis fan. I've been a big Wizard of Oz fan in all it's forms since early childhood.

Sarah, thanks so much for this review. I've been looking forward to it, and the wife and I will be going tomorrow. I've never been a big fan of 3D, but it might be worth it.

Aww, well even then I would still suggest it! :D

Sure! I don't usually enjoy movies quite so much and I got home pretty excited about it and just felt the need to share!

I'm not a fan of 3D either since it really is just a gimmick hollywood dug up to try and pay for the upgrades from film to digital in theaters, but my Grandma broke her ankle the day before and she wanted to see in 3D so I didn't argue. :)

I hope you and your wife enjoy it!

I'm likely going to see it this weekend.

Considering Les Mis was just made into a movie, I'm really dying for them to make Wicked into a movie.

We did see it today, albeit in 2-D. I really liked it, and got teared up towards the end, too. OK, it won't win any acting awards, but it was fun, the cinematography was great, and it was quite funny in spots. I do wish they had mentioned about the ruby slippers. Medium thumbs up. :thumbsup:

I've been hankerin to see this, though at first I was a bit skeptical. After falling in love with "Wicked", I now have a massive grudge against Dorothy...lol

I thought it was so-so. It had it's moments. Too cheesy and I didn't care for the actors placed on those parts. As a stand alone it would have been okay, but considering the original, Return to OZ, and Wicked this movie was kind of poor.

I saw the movie yesterday with a friend. I thought it was brilliant! The graphics were awesome. I plan to get it on DVD

I watched it a few days ago :) I really liked it. My mom says I watched the wizard of Oz like a thousand times when I was little and that it was my favorite movie, but I can't remember a thing about it! I was wondering where was Dorothy in this movie since I couldn't remember the original movie and didn't know this one is a prequel.

I also thought the little china doll was too cute and was sad that the good witch was so heartbroken and wanted to stay evil, I was actually angry at Oz for being such a flirt . Now I want to watch the original movie again :)

      Thank you all for the support. I do know that it takes a strong person to be vulnerable.  But when a bond is ravaged I’ve always looked to those that have the courage to move on as the strong ones. Not the ones that stay.    I just can’t seem to truly forgive her for what’s happened. For the awful thing she’s done. And before transition I would have walked away. And I have. I stayed this time because I’m scared to face life With 2 kids 2 exes and no support at home.    I have seen that I still love her. But I love my ex too. Not exactly the same way. But at one time it was the same with her. I can’t help but think this is all for stupid reasons based on a fallacy that I can’t survive with my kids without her. And unless I can figure out how to forgive her for real like in my heart and soul idk what to do.    On the flip side this is the first time that my partner has ever done their part to fix the problem as well. And she’s done everything I’ve asked. And she’s done more. She’s an amazing person really and like I said I do love her. I just can’t figure out if my morals or my feelings are what I need to listen to. And I guess that’s a personal thing I need to figure out. I just wish it wasn’t so hard. And all encompassing.

      This is very important!  My wife had this situation recently for a routine test that needed to be evaluated by a non-affiliated doctor.  Ouch!  Jani

      There are no boundaries as long as you are safe.  Lots of women enjoy "masculine" activities and many men like "feminine" activities.  Don't fret over it.     BTW I am still active with my car hobby.   Jani

      Hello.  I wonder if this was a gender counselor?  It does appear as if they were asking tough questions to make you consider all the options.  You need to be honest with yourself about what in your life would change (physically and emotionally) if you had this surgery.   I do think her statement about being a freak was a little harsh and not necessarily correct.  If possible you might consider a new therapist.    Jani

      Hello Dave/Dina.  Welcome aboard.     I will just mention that you are close to Fenway Health and they are very caring.  I love my doctor there.     Please join in the conversation! Jani

      Hi I recently went to a therapist who was asking me questions my birth sex is female i identify as a woman but i have wanted top surgery she began talking about all the surgery and risks felt like she was trying to put me off wanted to know about my family asked me why I want top surgery as a woman I have always seen breasts as a nuisance a hindrance wearing bras and so on she came to the conclusion that it was not about my identity that was an issue one thing she said that really stuck into me she said  how would I feel in society as a breathless woman.she said society would class me as a freak I was shocked by her words and feel really crap about myself I am femme presenting and I feel like she did not believe me about wanting top surgery or did not see things from my perspective i suppose life as a breastless woman would be hard on a binary world  she asked to think about my relationship to my chest and I feel like I am being encouraged to think about them it just feels really jarring i guess this was a nh s therapist

      Can I just say?.. I think you're a strong woman for staying. I'd say that regardless of gender. You're strong for staying! And for admitting the vulnerability and the hurt. But wanting to maintain the relationship through it all anyway is strength. Wounds do heal.    ❤️ ~Toni
    • SugarMagnolia
      Kirsten, may I suggest a slight tweak to how you're thinking about this? Instead of thinking of yourself as a weak woman may I suggest simply thinking of yourself as a woman who's strong enough to allow herself to be vulnerable? When you are open to others, you are open to being hurt. That's not weakness. It's faith and love and trust. When that trust is violated it hurts...a lot. If you weren't a strong woman you wouldn't be able to let people in and you wouldn't be hurt like that. But you also wouldn't be able to truly love and be loved. Take heart and know that you're strong enough to get through this!

      Just another voice in the chorus.  Please go to the clinic you mentioned and get some professional help!  Even short term self administration can cause a lifetime of problems with few positive results.   Hugs,   Charlize

      So Rokkatru is an off-shoot of Asatru or Heathenism, which is Paganism specializing in Norse mythology. Rokkatru focuses on the worship of Rokkar -- IE Frost Giants. The most popular members of the pantheon is the shape shifting, genderfluid, and pansexual God of fire, mischief, and stories Loki and his family. Because Loki can take the form of both God or Goddess or even androgyny, he has become the patron saint of queens, so to speak.    I run a Rokkatru blog on Tumblr where I am out as FtM and have a little over 300 followers. Is anyone else interested in this?

      This.    You have to be comfortable with yourself and comfortable with living on your own before you can be comfortable in a committed relationship.    Pansexuality has been trending for a while in the LGBT community. At least, among us younger members. For those of you who haven't heard it, pansexuality is the attraction to all genders, including transgenders. So there are definitely people out there. They are just part of a younger generation.    Also there are people who see being trans as a fetish. Which is....Or can be problematic, IMO, because then you are basically being used as a play thing, I feel like. Unless you're into that, of course.

      Kristen i'm so sorry to read about your struggles accepting the actions of your wife.  An incident like that can certainly haunt one but hopefully in time it will heal both in the relationship and in your feeling of weakness.  I remember feeling so vulnerable during early transition.  With the coming of confidence in myself as a woman came a feeling of acceptance and strength. Just like the hairs on your chin time it can be dealt with.  It takes a great deal of strength to get past the fear we all face at first.  I doubt any of us are really weak.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Even on prescribed medication, I still developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) that necessitated that I go off hormones for nearly a year.  Luckily the blood clot did not go into any crucial organs, but I now have medicines I really don't want that I will take for the rest of my life.  We like to keep our members with us here alive and in good spirits.
