Went and saw Oz tonight on what may have been the biggest movie screen I’ve ever encountered.
I tried to do a little research cause we couldn’t figure out just how big it was, and it seems like the answer is somewhere around 38×70 feet. That’s ridiculous! The movie was really good, surprisingly so actually. Even with the couple behind us that apparently hadn’t been to a moving picture show since the first Wizard of Oz talking the whole time.
In the past these remakes, or re-imagined classics have been more disappointing than not. This one did a much better job. The only thing that I didn’t really like was the makeup on the Wicked Witch. Going into why would detract from the experience, so I won’t. Suffice it to say that while it was done well, it just didn’t sit right with me and kinda took me out of the moment.
All in all…definitely go watch it.
See you tomorrow,
