    I think I’ll skip it, since I hate this movie.

  • You’re killing me, G! Hating ‘Wizard of Oz’ is like hating Christmas or chocolate or puppies…

  • How is it even humanly possible not to like the Wizard of Oz? So what movies DO you like?

    I shouldn’t have said that I hated it, because I actually don’t (if I had to give it a grade, I’d give it a B- or around 2 1/2 stars). That was an exaggeration. But I do think it’s one of the more overrated movies out there. And Karey, for your information, I love plenty of other movies that are considered classics, including “Duck Soup”, “Roman Holiday”, “Mutiny on the Bounty”, “West Side Story”, “The Sound of Music”, “Rear Window”, “Days of Heaven”, and “Some Like it Hot”. Supposedly “great” movies that I didn’t think much of include “The Wizard of Oz”, the original “King Kong”, “Citizen Kane”, and “The Maltese Falcon”. So I apologize for saying I hated it. I don’t truly despise many movies.

    In fact, here’s the complete list of movies I hate: “Field of Dreams”, “Forrest Gump”, “The Cat in the Hat”, “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over”, and “Anaconda”. That’s it. Seriously. I try to see as few bad movies as possible, so maybe that’s why.
