Movies and I have a generally good relationship; that is I’m a cheap date. When I go, I expect the movie to evoke some emotion or entertainment for the 2-3 hours I’m there and then we part ways. It’s like speed dating, except I don’t have to talk. Also I never have to see them again if I don’t want to and they don’t mind. I don’t think this is too much to expect, but sometimes even a movie can make for a bad date. Oz falls into this slot and that sucks, because it was on my 2013 bucket list.
These illustrations by Billy Nunez take the cast of The Wizard of Oz and transports them waaaay away from Kansas, into a mystical Chinese realm. And yes, before someone mentions it, there are koalas in China. Also, if the Lion is now a Tiger, who is the Tiger?
As far as we know, director Sam Raimi is still attached to the Warcraft movie project, but he keeps putting it off to do something else. This new something else is a Wizard of Oz prequel movie from Disney. So once again, if you’re holding your breath to see orcs and humans and night elves battling it out on the big screen, don’t hold your breath.
