Oz in the News 5.13.14

r2us14b8o8j4irj9zhjyThe Game of Thrones/Wizard of Oz Mashup You Never Knew You Wanted  Is there emerald dust in the water or something? A friend of mine happens to be working on an OZ game (but there’s ALWAYS one of those in development), this movie finally shows up, and I just finished this atrocity…

There’s little legendary about this trip to ‘Oz’  “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return” is a harmless but almost charmless adaptation of a book by L. Frank Baum’s grandson. It’s a derivative hash of grandpa’s story, set in the present day, given forgettable new tunes by pop songsmiths such as Bryan Adams that are sung by the likes of Lea Michele, Martin Short, Hugh Dancy and the operatic Megan Hilty of TV’s “Smash.” And it’s in 3-D, of course.
