Let’s Just be Mad

“Filming began Tuesday on “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” the star-studded new-spin prequel to “The Wizard of Oz,”  in Michigan, Disney announced. James Franco takes the lead as the young pre-Wizard, a magician who finds himself cast off into Oz. There he meets a sparkling group of sister witches — both good and bad — in Rachel Weisz  as Evanora, Michelle Williams as Glinda and  Mila Kunis as Theodora, and alongside his assistant,  played by Zach Braff, he finds himself further and further immersed into the magical land.”


Intensify your disgust by reading the studio press release.

    I hate them all. Fuck James Franco! It’s like he was put on this earth to undermine me.

    And as for the other bitches- I hate them all too. It’s a tie between Michelle Williams (i am so indie and yet so pretty and so tragic and so….puke) and Rachel Weisz (i am a serious actress, yo! smart! beautiful! and a posh English accent as well… do you have a boner yet?).

    Mila Kunis gets a pass because she’s young and seems to still smile in all her pics.

    Unlike you, ‘Sis’, to minimise your words. Allow me:

    Brain-dead, retarded, single-cell amoeba fuckers!!!!!

    There, that feels better and I threw in an extra ‘!’ just for luck.

    The only thing that would make it better is if it turns out to be a Kung Fu movie and they cast Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber as munchkins! THAT my friends would be AWESOME!

  4. Ann says:

    Yeah, this is not for me.

  5. Sheri says:

    Isn’t this “wicked”?


  6. patni says:

    Hollywood is so boring and there is no limit to my disgust with James Franco.

    my response to that is this Patton Oswalt bit:

    At Midnight I Will Kill George Lucas With A Shovel

  9. Debbie says:

    You will find me “somewhere over the rainbow” before I see this one.

    what the eff is WICKED if it ISNT THE PREQUEL to wizard of oz?!

    the musical theatre nerd (ahem, that would be me) is mad.

  11. Eliza says:

    Even NPR once inexplicably described James Franco as a “celebrity polymath” instead of “guy who tries his hand at too many things to escape mediocrity and undisguised douchebaggery.”

    This offends me as much as making “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” about a charmingly awkward geek and ditsy weathergirl.

    I don´t know who the fuck is James Franco, but I am Spanish… I cannnot like someone whose surname is Franco. Hope you understand.

    Greetings from Spain!!!

    the idea of James Franco and Wizard of Oz sharing the same sentence is offensive enough. This hits so many nerves I can’t process a response.

    The oz series holds a sacred place in my childhood. Visiting the ruby slippers in the Smithsonian was my spiritual ritual. And Now franco is sticking his dick into it. excellent.

  14. Andra says:

    If I said I have never been able to watch The Wizard of Oz without having nightmares for weeks would I be laughed off the stage?
    It really gives me the heebie jeebies.
    So does The Sorcerer’s Apprentice scene from Fantasia.
    And I don’t like Tolkien either.

  15. Andra says:

    What is the latest position of the wandering fork?
    Has it moved again?
