Movie Review: Oz the Great and Powerfull

Pure Awesomeness

Pure Awesomeness

Oz the Great and Powerful was just that: Great and Powerful. I liked it because I was a prequel with a concept I had never thought about before. How did Oz become the great wizard he is today? It was clever and I tip my hat to Mila Kunis. SHE WAS AWESOME!!!!!

The only problem I have is that it disregarded everything in the play Wicked. I know what your thinking. Lyra888 is probably some girl who is obsessed with Wicked and thinks any Wizard-of-Oz like thing that isn’t like it is stupid.

You are absolutely correct.

4 1/2 stars


Movie Review: Rise of the Guardians.

The Rise of the Guardians was much better than I expected. It was a heartwarming movie about figuring out who you are, and in essence, what you are. Although it was a bit of a little kids movie, it was still good. I was extremely glad that this wasn’t a sappy holiday movie. Some people may say I’m a grinch, but after waiting 15 minutes for a cab, in the freezing cold, with the salvation army guy and his bell giving you a headache, you wouldn’t be in the Christmas spirit either. My only problem is that all the magic in this movie was represented by sand. Black sand, Yellow sand, and light blue sand. Way too much sand. Overall, I give it 4 stars.


Why is there so much sand in this movie? We may never know.
