So I’ve been on this old childhood movie kick lately and last night I watched the Wizard of Oz. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this movie, but this time I decided to watch it from a “grown-up” perspective.
As the storyline goes, four strangers meet and set out on an adventure with a dog to be granted things they were wishing for, but already possessed.
The Scarecrow wanted brains, but throught the movie used common sense and ingenuity to get everyone out of various situations. The Tin Man wanted a heart but displayed sincere care and compassion to all. The Cowardly Lion put himself in harms way when Dorothy was captured by the Wicked Witch. And Dorothy? Well, she just wanted to go home and she was home the entire time – she just didn’t know because of a little bump on the head.
