We rented Tin Man from Blockbuster on-line. It's a Sci-Fi Channel original feature. I wanted to watch it when it was on, but...if you know me well, you know I don't really watch tv. With the fact that most networks now immediately release the season that just ended of their shows on dvd, I would rather wait for the seasons to end, and rent them from Blockbuster. I am not patient. I can't wait week to week to see what happens. I watch "Supernatural," "Bones" and "Grey's Anatomy" this way. That's pretty much it. And "Gilmore Girls" but that's no longer on.
So I missed watching this when it was airing and was bummed, until I saw that I could rent it.
This is a total twist on "The Wizard of Oz" we know. I enjoyed the little changes and tweaks. It was fun, fun fun...except one thing.
Great Googly Moogly, Zooey Deschanel CAN. NOT. ACT. If you're a fan, I'm sorry. I am. She's cute. But.....man. When her character is trying to remember something from the past, Zooey would make this face, like screw her eyebrows up and look off into space and kind-of pout and ....uh. Bad. Really, look at her face here. I was reading wikipedia on her and it was saying how she is known for her deadpan acting. Like, it's her "thing?" I mean, if that's her thing, is that how she does every role? I'm out of the loop, I suppose.
I enjoyed the evil witch and her flying monkeys! SHE did a great job as the evil Azkadellia.
David couldn't get past all the changes to Mr. Baum's work. As long as you know it's not his work, I think you'll enjoy it. I did.
