Isaacs Picture Conclusions

A QUICKIE WITH MRS. THE IPC: OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

OZ1

This new segment is to try and prove to people that I don’t only watch horseshit movies and that I’m not totally insane. LOL 

Here’s how this movie was experienced:

*Saturday Night – After we had been playing in a golf tournament all day, baking in the sun and drinking beer (well, I was)*

MRS. THE IPC: E.J. there’s NOTHING to watch…

ME: How about MAMA?

MRS. THE IPC:  Are you kidding me? Has all of that sun gone to your head?

ME: Wanna give OZ a try?

MRS. THE IPC: Sure.

*30 Minutes later*

ME: I’m so fucking bored with this movie. Why do people think Franco is such a good actor??”

MRS. THE IPC: Beats me. Wanna go over to Todd’s and swim?

ME: Sure

ME (THINKING): I sure wish one of Mila Kunis’ tits would pop out of that dress…

*Sunday Morning*

MRS. THE IPC: Wanna try and finish OZ?

ME: Sure

*An hour and a half later*

MRS. THE IPC: Well that turned out better than we thought, huh?

ME: Yep – not too bad. I totally liked the little china glass girl doll.

MRS. THE IPC: Yep, totes.

ME: I could have done with a little less high intensity color.

MRS. THE IPC: Yep.

ME: Franco’s still a goddamned stooge.

MRS. THE IPC: Oh he’s not THAT bad, crab.

ME: I hate his guts.

MRS. THE IPC: His guts, huh?

ME: Totes.

And that’s that! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go golfing with THE IPC? Here’s a little teaser:

        I can see why people think Franco is dull in this role, but he actually is a good actor who is capable of pulling off a wide range of roles; he should get an Oscar nomination for “Spring Breakers” – and I’m not even kidding. He fully and wholly came out of himself and BECAME an entirely different person. He was all-in for the role in “Spring Breakers” where as in “Oz” he looked bored. It’s funny b/c it seems the harder the role, the more he excels.

        You give him an easy role and he comes across very vanilla, and I think it’s b/c he’s bored, and not being challenged, and just comes across unmotivated. That’s my impression, anyway. “Spring Breakers” is definitely not for everyone, and I understand why some hate it, but no one can deny Franco’s performance. It’s similar as Elijah Woods in his “Maniac” role.

      It’s not too bad… a little bit too much but not too bad…

      The tournament we were in – they were driving around asking people to take pictures teeing off in that damn mask (for a couple of mulligans). It was around 95 out there that day and about 140 in that damn thing. Terrible!!

  2. I thought Mama was really disappointing. But not as disappointing as I’d probably find Oz. I remember when I learned they had cast Franco as Oz. I thought, “Really, Sam Raimi??” The only thing I liked James Franco in was Pineapple Express. Other than that, he can piss off.

        Mila Kunis as the wicked witch made this movie a complete joke; her performance was dreadful. She’s good in most of her other roles, and overall is a pretty good actress, but was grossly miscast as the wicked witch here. Yeah, there are definitely worse movies out there, but this was an underwhelming let-down. There’s a reason you & the Mrs. could not watch in one sitting. 🙂

  4. I have to say, I didn’t find it all that bad. It looked great but the story was weak. As for Franco, I normally despise the man but I thought he done well in this.

    By the way, is that a big white turd that’s landed behind you on the golf course. It looks like it just dropped from your arse. 😉

    Boat Drinks!
