I LOVE WIZARD OF OZ - SHAME ABOUT THE BOOK

Post by Orwell on Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:26 am

I really love the Wizard of Oz (movie). Doesn't everyone? But you're not going to believe it, Forumshirers, some guy from Bree - who I shan't name to save his dignity - says he hates it. Shocked

As best as I can tell, he has heaps of reasons why the Books are Great and the movie is s*^t, he even said he "ranted" about it --- but he's too polite to post the rant here! What! Does he think we're shrinking violets or something!? Mad Too scared to face a fierce rebuttal - that's the real reason! Nod

(These Bree-Landers are nice enough, can't be denied, but they don't have much ticker in my opinion Rolling Eyes - exceptin' that orrid Mrs Figg, of course! Shocked )

I saw the film once when I was a little kid but I didn't care for it. Haven't read the book so I can't comment on that though.

So what you're saying, Eldo, is that any opinion you have will be worthless? Why bother posting at all? Rolling Eyes

I warn you, Eldo, I have a feeling this will be no thread for the faint hearted, the wishy washy, or the flipfloppy - or ladies neither. Something as important as the Wizard of Oz movie needs mature masculine discussion, I feel.

Clear the decks! Clear the decks! Clear the decks, I say!

Could not agree more - though an open minded person will detect exceptions to the rule every now and then, Ally. Mad

What is it about Forumshire that seems to ensure that when I open a Thread for mature male conversation, the first two responses come from Lady hobbits? Rolling Eyes

Don't you mean Daisy? Yes, Daisy should be in bed but I Squach - (note the spelling - it's not like it's written plainly to the right of the screen in big letters) should not. (I hope)

Odo's spelling does give us a fix though, Squach. When I see "Squach"now I don't think "Squatch" anymore, but "Skwaych". In a way, Odo is providing a public service, Eru bless him. Smile
