The Witches Of Oz is the film based on the novels for children: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Ozma of Oz, The Road to Oz, and The Magic of Oz Baum L. Initially, and her friends travel to so that she can help Dorothy return to Kansas. And no Dr Sweets or Martha. Princess Lulu requested from Princess Ozma to help find her brother—the throne of the kingdom does not interest her and she only wants the Prince of Ev to return and become the ruler of the country. And if you like the Wizard of Oz, Return to Oz, and The Tin Man, you will like this movie as well. Dorothy meets a pleasant Guph the next morning and the Nome King is worried.
The Wicked Witch of the West keeps the Lion locked in a cell intending to use him to pull her carriage. Apparently, a review has to be a minimum of ten lines. Then, rather than he protecting Dorothy, Dorothy defends Tik-Tok from the Wheelers and accompanied by him goes off to meet Princess Langwidere. However Glinda has discovered that he did father a child just before he died; a girl named Ozma who disappeared soon after as she was removed by the Wizard due to him not wishing to lose the power he had gained by becoming ruler. He has a giant worm that can eat rock but not iron, and secretly planned to overthrow the Nome King after they conquered the Emerald City.
I really enjoy watching films about magic, witchcraft, and those that take inspiration from old classics, so I thought this would make for some interesting, easy viewing. The animals of the forest are thankful that the Lion defeated the Monster Spider and make him king to show their gratitude. The wicked witch and Princess Langwidere are after a key that only Dorothy may know about. It obviously has designs on being a big epic fantasy, but it's impossible to take it seriously. Soon the friends are together again, and Dorothy discovers the Wicked Witch's Golden Cap. After Dorothy manages to find the Winkie Timsmith to help her rescue Tin Man from the Growleywog, Guph sneaks into the Emerald City, going along the many stairs and doors, only to lose his memory in the Palace.
I found this an interesting angle for the movie and felt the writers and actors did an astounding job of keeping the movie flowing smoothly throughout. The film stars Paulie Redding, , , , , and. Mia Sara makes an appearance as Langwidere, kinda. The plot was changed a lot too—the characters can freely walk across the unharmed, does not even come from Kansas. Actually I would like a stuffed Bryan the Lion to cuddle: , he is just cute, and a bad ass.
For the plot of the movie no-one says what that parallel is; so it leaves me wondering what character is it and if they edited 15 minutes out of the story out in the cutting room. Dorothy wishes to return home to Kansas, so as not to worry her uncle and aunt, from the first moment she arrives in Oz. Underground, the Worm's failed attempt to go any further unto the emerald city gets Guph and the Nome King into an argument. None of the actors who play Munchkins are given an individual credit. As for the story, I liked the idea and I admit I was kind of looking forward to what they were going to do with it, however it didn't engage me, I found The Witches of Oz rather sluggishly paced and also that some scenes dragged on for too long. Doubtless kids will like it, esp girls I think. The popular story has also been used for a number of more recent adaptations, and some of them have had some good points of their own.
Of course the names are great, but the characters are some of the best actors I have seen. The original Broadway production eventually spawned productions in Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Stuttgarbourne, San Francisco, Sydney, Oberhasen, and Osaka, as well as two North American tours that have visited over 30 cities. It follows the adventures of Dorothy, an orphan girl living out in the gray prairies of with her Aunt Em, her Uncle Henry and her dog Toto. The characters are not written very well at all, and I cared for very few of them, even Toto. I have never, ever written a review for anything on the internet, but after watching this poor attempt of entertainment, I felt compelled to air my views. The terrified Winkies tell their King the Tin Man of the monster, and Dorothy also learns of the news. My daughter is a teen and she is enjoying it two.
It's a great addition to my collection, and any fan of Oz will enjoy this, I'm sure. Who does not feel that he or she could use at least one of the things that Dorothy's friends want? It's not even so bad it's funny. To start things off, I was not expecting any kind of adaptation or even a re-imagining. Before he leaves, he makes Scarecrow the King of Oz however Toto escapes from Dorothy's arms to chase a mouse and they miss the balloon's launching. Back in Oz, Glinda appears and congratulates Ozma on a job well done as the Nomes, Growlewog and Worm return home. Dialogue was written by the students in a high school drama class.
Why cast an actress that can't speak with any feeling, or engage with other characters? Writing and script of a modern day Dorothy showing up at a farm house with a magical key to save Oz from the bad witches was a boring and too frequently copied plot line found in many fantasy movies. Darryl van Horn, the mysterious and wicked man who arrives to the quiet and sleepy little town of Eastwick after three women, the Blonde Souki Pfeifer , the Redhead Jean Sarandon , and the Brunette Alex Cher , best friends and witches dreamed him up as a man who can bring some changes and excitement in their lonely lives. I am in love with this version, and the take on it! Christopher, Billy, Sean, Ethan, all fantastic, but the scarecrow, and the lion, they rock, how do I get them for best friends? If not then avoid it like the plague. Unfortunately the one person that had to carry it all simply couldn't. Cruelty to a dog's career! Please, wait, it will be worth it! Jack uses the Wizard's old tricks to distract and scare the girls as his friends put together and bring to life a Moose-Bed a canopy bed with a stuffed Moose head attached.
Dorothy and her friends are the only ones who can stop the evil Wicked Witch of the West and her plans for global domination. The Wizard reveals he is actually a traveling magician from Nebraska who was accidentally swept away to Oz in his hot air balloon, and decided to pretend to be a Wizard as it was only the fear of a powerful magician that stopped the two Wicked Witches from taking over the whole land. Dorothy is sweet to the point of saccharine. The Nome King is of very short stature, and tries to make up for it by proving to everyone how big of a ruler he is—he dried out the whole sea until there was only a big desert left because it made him feel small , and he kidnapped the Prince of Ev. Before she does so, she requests that the Golden Cap be turned over to her. She tells them the way to Nomeland, before giving Tik-Tok an egg.
