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 :)

      That is a nice bike I always wanted an ultra. I had a 2006 road king but sold it for a new welder on my service truck at the time and a 50 Plymouth business coupe that I need to restore. In all honesty after working 6-7 days a week for so long I’m pretty much burnt out and by the time I get home th last thing I want to touch is a wrench. Maybe eventually I will get back to it.

      Wow!  Mondays will never be the same.   That's also an amazingly fast timeline for a government agency to act/hire.  Must mean they really want you. Congratulations, Shawna❣️

      This is REALLY GOOD, MetaLicious!  I had a rap beat-box going in my head the whole time I was reading it and it just clicked.  and I don't even like rap. Hah!   Keep writing❣️

      All i can add is: Why?  Are the folks in Idaho sure that the entire population will transition?  Are the women scared of how good we look?   Just nasty.  It's probably just a bit of Republican dogma.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Thank you for your reply, Sally.  Between your response and @Susan R's this is comforting. Maybe I already knew the answer?  this in not a trans/LGBTQ+, or cis-man/woman issue, its a human issue.  How we treat each other as human beings.  That's my experience in life also, that people who are secure in themselves will treat other with understanding and respect ... and those that aren't ... ?  Well I guess it doesn't matter what "category" they identify with. Thanks again❣️

      Sounds like an amazing day!  Best of luck with your move and new job.   Hugs,   Charlize

      That's such a sweet bike Kymmie. I had a 2007 RK that I had to sell after my divorce. I sold it for $6k. I still shed a tear over that one.   Yesterday changed Shawna's and my lives forever. What once seemed hypothetical is now very very real! We both posted about it!   Have a good day!   Patti

      Thank you @Susan R for sharing that post.  That was an uplifting experience and nice to hear how much it helped you.  I hope I can experience the same someday.

      Good morning! Supposed to get up to 90 today so nice and warm. I only have a 4 day week I took Friday and Saturday off because my wife is having a procedure. I had a talk with my wife last night and I told her that if things work out this weekend I want to come out to brother in law and the people that live close to me. The physical changes haven’t started yet, but mentally I’m tired of presenting male in my personal life. She just told me you do you!

      Does she need any more help Hon? If so, sign me up.   Yes. Things are getting very very real, very very fast! TTYL   XXOO   PA

      Up early.  230am and just couldn’t get back to sleep as my Mind is still buzzing from yesterday’s events. I posted about it in another thread as to not junk up this one with my drivel.    Just now getting my first mug of coffee in me then a quick shower.  Gotta keep the wound clean.  More planning, calling, and receiving of guests who hopefully will be buying more of Shawns hobby toys.   I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

      Well GF when I get there we all will have to hit some stores. I do like shopping and I can literally abuse a clearance rack section in minutes.  I show up to a dressing room with a look on my face like “ Yeah right!  5 items only my arse!”  And then proceed to cram my card in there with me.  Lol Id love to go a shop with you! I can speak for Patti and say she is a bit of a shop-acholic too and she is tall as well.  Perhaps she can point you to some places out there.
