    I don't think you would be impressed, Redress.

    This is funny because I feel the exact opposite. I hated The Wizard of Oz (movie, story, everything (Tin Man was okay)), loved Wicked. I think I loved it so much because they did such a good job of turning the characters around. (It also probably helped that my roommate got me hooked on the play soundtrack prior to me reading the book.)

    I feel the same way. I loved the movie, and also loved the Sic Fi channel version of the movie. I also liked Wicked, because I thought the play was awesome.

    It was okay. I like the Tin Man even better.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Loved the Izzard of Woz as a kid; still rather like it when I'm in the right mood.

    Liked Tin Man. Haven't seen Wicked... what's so bad about it? Is it one of those things that takes something beautiful and turns it ugly and wretched and vile?

    Goshin. Oz was exceptional in every way. Wicked made it common.

    Agreed - they should have printed it on softer thinner paper - that way it would have been good for SOMETHING at least!

    I would watch it in a minute
    Even though I am not in it.
    I might eat some popcorn, too.
    I would sing songs by the hours
    As I trip out to to those flowers
    and I'd wonder "Do you, too"?

    I love the 1939 film and feel it is one of the Ten Best American movies ever made.

    I also love the musical WICKED and have seen it twice - the last time from the second row in Chicago and it was amazing. The song "I'm Not That Girl" breaks your heart. Its simply a wonderful story in every way.

    I like it all: Wiz of Oz, books of Oz, The Wiz, Tin Man, and of course, Wicked.
