Movie Quotes: "Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable." - Wizard of Oz

Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person shouldn't believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. -FB

Rating of

Oz the Great and Powerful

Great? Not so much..

Everything the Wizard of Oz IS, this movie ISN'T. There's no magic and whimsy. The actors try very hard to fake innocence and to have a whimsical air about them and just come off very fake and wooden. The casting was horrible. James Franco is not a leading man. He has absolutely no charisma. And when you're playing a philandering magician, you need charisma. I didn't see a wizard or a character. I saw James Franco in a funny suit, acting like an idiot. Mila Kunis was laughable. Michelle Williams was a dufas. What happened?? Rachel Weisz was ok. The best characters were the minor ones, like China Doll and Finley and guess what? They're animated! The only real points I can give this movie are for style. It's very visually striking, but …

Franco is effective in serious roles not for Oz the Great and Powerful type flicks. If only Zach Braff would get better roles or continue to make new films then this would be a better world huh hehehe

Chernobyl Diaries Review comment

The only part of this film that got any reaction out of me at all was the bear (mainly because -WTF, a bear!) - after that, it was all downhill. This is even worse in that it emulates a found footage film, but fails so miserably. The genre it entirely too played out for my taste.

Tim Burton, Best to Worst comment

This list will probably end up changing because Tim Burton rocks (except Mars Attacks and Ed Wood, they hold solid spots at the bottom and will only move further down as he makes more movies).

Why Did I Watch This?! comment

Thank you. I feel better now. The moral here is, "Never judge a DVD by it's title."

Cut yourself some slack; The Puffy Chair is a film with too great of a name to pass up.
