Oz-The Great and Powerful comes out today. I saw it last night. That's how I roll.
Too bad I need to start out with a mini vent. So I know that Warner Bros owns the rights to The Wizard of Oz, so Disney had to be careful not to steal any of their rights but it's getting a little ridiculous. I mean this movie WAS a prequel to The Wizard of Oz without it being the prequel. It's just a bummer that they couldn't say words like 'Dorothy'. I mean, come on.
Ok, that being said. Wicked is much better than Oz. But I liked this movie. My friend I went with---yeah I don't think she liked it as much. I dunno. I felt like a child laughing at all the childish jokes. It was a fairly predictable movie, but I still enjoyed it. It kind of reminded me of Willy Wonka land. Oz was just so cool looking. I think I'm going to visit one day.
I DO have something to say about the 3D. I accidentally showed up to a showing that was for 3D only. I usually hate 3D. However, this was the best 3D movie I have seen since Avatar. I know what you all are thinking..."Ok you are stooopid Justin." But I mean it! Like they would throw things at the camera and I would flinch. It was pretty neat. I don't think the movie would have been the same in 2D. It kind of reminded me of the Justin Bieber Never Say Never 3D movie. WAIT! I mean the Katy Perry 3D movie...but I digress.
Oz...worth it? James Franco is pretty much a terrible actor. Is he good in anything? Someone remind me please. Mila Kunis--meh not her best. Michelle Williams was aight but pretty boring. Rachel Weisz was the best in the movie. She actually acted like she wanted to be in the movie. I guess I mostly liked the scenery and the 3D. Other than that it wasn't anything incredible, but I still enjoyed it.
I love movies. And sour patch kids.
