Movie Review #1 - Oz the Great and Powerful

    On March 8, 2013, the movie Oz the Great and Powerful came out in theaters. I have been waiting for the release of this movie for what seems like months! So I generally hate going to midnight premiers of movies, instead, I go in the morning of the release date, before noon so it's cheaper. Since I went to watch the movie by myself, I decided to take notes while watching the movie (no big deal, I do it all the time). Watch this video to hear my  notes

This is a half hour long video so make time to watch :) Also, it's more of a recap than a review...

    To prove just how excited I was for the film, here are some pictures of the nail design that I made for the release of the movie. I finished this design a week before the movie came out so I wasn't able to remove my nail polish for a whole week. As someone who loves painting nails, it was torture! I had so many ideas brewing in my head but I was unable to use them! Le Struggle~! Well, enjoy the pictures:

Yellow Brick Road

Emerald City
Yellow Brick Road Leading to the Emerald City

Here are the notes that I was reading off of (decided to transcribe it onto here so you guys can read my ridiculous comments to myself):
  • B&W Opening <3
  • Young Mila Kunis in wheel chair in audience during the show. (The little girl sounds like her, is naive)
  • Frank the assistant -> flying monkey
    "You're just a trained monkey"
  • Annie = Michelle Williams. She marries Dorothy's dad John Gale
    "Kansas is full of good men...I don't want to be a good man, I want to be a great one"
  • Tornado + running from bad guy (strongman) -> same as Dorothy
  • this would look so good in 3D (the stuff flying around in the tornado)
  • he says he promises to change and then everything slows down?? that was way too fast
  • oh the moment when all the colors appear <3 slowly becomes widescreen
