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 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 :)

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      The right wingers will go crazy over this (I think they already have), but I think its appropriate and a nice touch.   Carolyn Marie

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8
