Classic Movie

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

My five year old son, soon to be six on Monday, has never seen the WIzard of Oz. So I decided to rent it and see what he thought. He is sitting here watching it and is just as in to it as I remember being as a child.

When I grew up it was shown on tv just once a year and it looked forward to almost as much as Halloween or Christmas. I could just not wait to see it each year. Of course now with VHS and CD's any movie is available to watch at anytime. So in some ways it I think that is unfortunate, as it takes some of the magic of it away.

But what a great show that is still just timeless. It amazes me how well the special effects where for the time when this movie was made. I still believe this is one of the best movies ever made. There are very few movies I can watch more then once, which is why I don't buy videos, but I never get tired to seeing this show. As I look over at my son glued to the screen I am sure that will be the case for him also, and we will be watching it one or two more times before we send it back to Netflix.
