I went to see the new Oz movie the other day. Here are my thoughts on the previews I saw:
1. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Macguire are co-starring in The Great Gatsby. I never read that book, but I did read one of the modern-day versions of the book, which I disliked. I also disliked the movie preview. Don't get me wrong; I love the idea of Leo and Tobes teaming up to make a movie. But this is clearly not the movie for them.
No, I want to see them in a comedic buddy film, like Weird Science or Rush Hour. Maybe a Sherlock Holmes comedy is in order. Leo and Tobes could make a great Sherlock and Watson.
2. Half of the previews were post-apocalyptic. Hollywood is fascinated with the end of the world, it seems.
3. Morgan Freedman was in two previews in a row. It confused me.
