The involuntary manslaughter before she even set foot in Oz was bad enough, but then to steal the shoes off the victim's feet so the victim's only living relative couldn't claim them and THEN stealing a farmer's property, recruiting a body-armored man with an axe and bringing a wild animal into a public place in the name of forming a heavily-armed gang to commit a home invasion and murder the original victim's sister? That's stone cold, yo.

I think the second one should have been R-Rated because this movie eats the souls of the young.

First of all, this description has been floating around for decades.

Secondly, everyone should read the books. My favorite was the one where the heroes found an entire civilization made out of living sentient wood - wooden creatures, landscapes, buildings - all alive and talking. The wooden people objected to the party traveling through their land, so how do our heroes respond? They burn the whole farking civilization to the ground and go merrily on their way. Dorothy (or one of the other little girls that feature in the series - I forget) commits genocide to remove a minor obstacle from her path.

Wait until they find out about the crazed candy factory owner who enslaves as entire race, forces them to work in self-evidently unsafe conditions, then systematically tortures children he considers "bad" in front of their parents.

Read the original stories. Oz was NOT a happy fun-time joy-joy place. Cowardly Lion wasn't all that cowardly when the wild beasts of Oz attacked, and Tin Woodsman used that ax of his a lot. And that's not getting into Ozma, the Nome King, and other nightmare fuel.

Optimal_Illusion: i recently had this comment sent to me on FaceBook: It's the ultimate Chick Flick, two women are willing to kill each other over a pair of shoes.

More people need to read the actual series. It's way more trippier than what the current Pop Culture at large believes it to be.

I did read "Wicked" because a relative recommended it, I liked it okay, but felt the book was lacking something, and seemed like it was more for working out the author's hang-ups. This is coming from someone who enjoyed the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.


You did not, nobody enjoys the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Anybody that claims to is just delusional that is like saying you finished Atlas Shrugged.

kim jong-un: The book (Wicked), was horrible. It was painful to read, unnecessarily vulgar and cruel. The musical took the concept of the book, and turned it into something pretty interesting and enjoyable.


Although I had problems with bits and pieces of the book I liked it overall. Then I went to go see Wicked the musical. Now, I would rate the songs an 8, the art direction a 10 and the book... a 3. God I hated that story and the dialogue was so insipid. I honest to god cringed throughout.

They left out the part where she stole the shoes. makes it much more fun when you look at it as a mugging and a home invasion.

Pretty sure that was from "Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz", same one with the invisible bears referenced up thread. I am making my way through these, picked them up after the wifey started reading them and was saying how good they are. Definitely think they should be a must read, lots of fun and great imagination.

Richard_The_Clown: Fell In Love With a Chair: Having read Wicked and its sequels... yeah. Might as well go ahead and throw the R-rating on there now while there's still time.

/Dunno if the musical is anything like the books

No nothing at all. The musical is closer to MGM's Oz than it is to the novel. The book was just dreary, no fun at all. The musical I thought was much better.

/read the book before I saw the musical...
