T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Wonderous Witches Of Oz

Last weekend the highly anticipated new Disney movie “Oz The Great and Powerful” opened at theaters nationwide, and no one was more excited to see it than me, aside from being a huge Disney fan, I am also a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan!

The movie itself is a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz movie, and it explains how the great Wizard came to Oz and saved it’s people from the Wicked Witches. James Franco stars as the Wizard, but the REAL stars of the show are the witches

Mila Kunis as Theodora who makes quite the transformation into a Wicked Witch

Their costumes and makeup were beautilful and visually the whole movie was amazing, it was definitely a movie that was made to be enjoyed in 3D

The movie looked great, but unfortunately, the acting and story were not up to par. Personally, I was really disappointed with the movie, and would only give it a 3/10. The first hour was painful, slow plot and horrible acting, and it’s saving grace was that in the second half of the movie, the action picked up and you didn’t notice the bad acting (as much).

Perhaps I was expecting too much? Not sure, but I would love to know your thoughts – did you see it? What did you think?

TGIF!

Favorite Disney Rides – The Great Movie Ride

 

LocationDisney’s Hollywood Studios, it’s pretty hard to miss as its housed in a replica of Hollywood’s historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

What It’s Like – It’s a true “ride through the movies”, as you board a tram and travel through scenes from some of Hollywoods most beloved films – including Alien, The Wizard of Oz, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Why I Love It – There are a LOT of things to love about this ride – first off, the line is never very long which is a huge plus, and the ride queue houses a display of movie costumes and memorabilia (which I highly recommend you stop and take a glance at!), and once you board the tram you have a live narrator to help you navigate through the streets and scenes where the audio animatronic figures and special effects really make you feel like you are following the yellow brick road with Dorothy! At the end of the ride, you get to watch a movie montage of famous moments in film, and it’s the perfect end to the perfect ride!

Take some time after you exit the ride to check out the handprints in front of the theater, it’s always fun to try and match your hands or feet to your favorite celebs!

The Great Movie Ride is a HUGE must do for me, I have loved it since I was a kid, and keep coming back again and again as an adult, it’s a true Disney classic!
