    Well it's out, and it's probably going to do big business even with its crappy reviews. And they're already planning a sequel. I hope the Nome King is the villain in that one. And that's not sarcasm.

    Sexiest Witch discussion would probably be more interesting than actually talking about this movie. I'm casting my vote for Rachel Weisz as well.

    For me, its a toss up between Weisz and Kunis.

    I'd much rather watch Jack the Giant Killer, especially after Mike's positive reaction. This looks terrible and might fit into the same category as Alice in Wonderland.

    Girls, girls, you're all pretty.

    But I'd go with Weisz. I think she'd be better in the sack than the other two.

    I too saw Jack the Giant Slayer (for free) and it was better than I expected. And part of the reason for that was, like they said it was a pure fairy tale movie. Not sarcastic or violent or snarky or meta or modern. Just Jack and the Beanstalk with big budget effects.

    I wouldn't say pay for it, but it was decent enough.

    It should have been PG though.

    I could not refuse the advances of Williams, Weisz, or Kunis.

    Thus then, I must have them all. :D

    I saw the flick last night. Ever since Mike and Jay have pointed out how important tone is in movies, I couldn't help but be struck by how inconsistent the tone is in this film. It goes from dead pan serious to goofy, to melodrama to slapstick from scene to scene. The China Doll goes from mourning the death of her entire family to being an entitled brat.

    And Franco was entirely miscast in this film. As mention in a HitW thread, I had no idea this role was initially for RDJ. It's like Franco was doing a really poor impression of RDJ.

    All that being said, I didn't hate the film. It was passable.

    Tone keeps coming up in HitW viewing threads. It is so crucial.

    At the end Michelle Williams tells James Franco "it's tight in here" and I really think she was talking about her box.

    I saw it. Didn't think it was terrible, but it was definitely weak and the story was kind of lacking. Though I did like the old school Raimi-look for the queen at the end. Franco was miscast. I thought his companions would have had more oomph if they were human and not CGI. It was definitely better than Alice in Wonderland and at least it gave the sense that there were living creatures occupying Oz and not just rocks and card men. Even with the Three Amigos rip-off ending.

    I thought Michelle Williams was the best of the lot. There was a quality about her Glinda that made me want to confess my sins and beg for forgiveness. Like that scene in Bad Lieutenant.

    Sorry for the mega bump but I didnt think this warranted a new thread.

    Oz The GAP is really a remake of...
