I wanted to watch this, but I forgot about it. Is it that bad?

Yeah, it's pretty cheesy.

It's on again tonight at 9. I liked it, sure there it was modernalized version of the book and not really anything like the classic movie, but it was still good in my book.

How much like the book was it really?

Mr. Green Eyes 12-03-2007 08:59 PM

Um.....I never really read the book:reject:, but it said that it based on the book in the opening credits.

Well the Judy Garland movie bears little resemblance to the source material itself.

The 80's adaptation of Return to Oz is much darker, and closer in tone to the books

Oh this was horrible. How could she do this?

I remember reading those when I was younger.

Definitely darker. :drool:

I watched the first half hour and thought they did a good job setting the atmosphere. Nice to see 90210's Claire (Kathleen Robertson) still working, though her henchmen were kind of lame.

Zooey is always a joy to watch, of course. Alan Cumming seems to have dialed it down a bit, which was very welcome. The scene where he meets D.G. reminded me a bit too much of the Ewok scenes from Return of the Jedi, which was not a good thing.

Will be back after I've seen more.

Alright, I just finished part 2, and it's not THAT bad. It definitely has gotten better as it's played out.

If I never saw part 3 I probably wouldn't lose any sleep over it, but I am curious to see what happens next.

Kathleen Robertson is still pretty hot, and it's been over 10 years since 90210. I think she's doing a great job as the villain here. I'm a little less impressed with Zooey, it pains me to say. I think she may have been a little miscast, and her delivery is often blase in relation to what's going on around here.

Also, can anyone illuminate me as to why this is called "Tin Man"? He's not really the main character. Is that because they thought it would sound cool? I mean, "D.G. in the O.Z." wouldn't have been good, but it would have fit the material better. Maybe "Outer Zone" would have been good, although that sounds too close to a hybrid of The Outer Limits and Twilight Zone...
