I took Big Girl to see "Oz: The Great & Powerful" yesterday. She really wanted to see it. I was indifferent walking in the theater, and in love waking out. It was fabulous.
I didn't think I would like it. But the movie was such tribute to "Wizard of Oz," with witty, smart parts, and I just adored it. It was very well done.
The deeper themes of the flick really hit home for me. How good does overcome evil. How believing in oneself can lead to great things -- as can others boosting one's self-esteem by believing in one as well. How one, with work, can change.
I loved "Oz," and so did Big Girl. If you have a chance to escape to the Emerald City soon, dodge some flying monkeys and head on over there.
