A more comprehensive title would be Apocalypse Oz Freeway.

Hitting metafilter up for free adspace seems right in line with the rest of the movie's budget.

When a man's an empty kettle
He should be on his mettle
And yet I'm torn apart
Just because I'm presumin'
That I could be kind-a human
If I only had a Hearts of Darkness.

"I love the smell of poppies in the morning. You know, one time we had a yellow brick road bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' Munchkin body. The smell, you know that lollipop smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory."

This is not pepsi blue and, obviously, this movie gonna suck pretty hard. However I can see at least one huge improvement on the source material.

Alright, alright, so now it's Alexandra Gizela Blue.

Kansas … shit; I'm still only in Kansas. Every time I think I'm gonna wake up back in the jungle. When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I'm here a week now … waiting for a mission … getting softer; every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute the Wicked Witch squats in the bush, she gets stronger. Each time I looked around, the walls moved in a little tighter.

*gloats*

Aside from that, the big question is whether or not you can still play The Dark Side of the Moon over the top of the movie.

There was a map of the Northern Territory on the wall of my apartment in Munchkin County and some nights, coming back late to the Emerald City, I'd lie out on my Queenslander and look at it, too tired to do anything more than just get my ruby slippers off. That map was a marvel, especially now that it wasn't real anymore.

Well... We live in the age of the mashup, so I suppose it's inevitable. After all, Tarantino's entire career has been this, except that he's mashing up, say 150 films instead of 2 or 3...

But I am saddened by the lack of the desire to tell original stories that aren't essentially fan fiction on drugs.

This Wizard guy? He's wacko, man! He's worse than crazy. He's evil. It's fuckin' pagan idolatry. Look around you. Shit! He's loco... I ain't afraid of all them fuckin' curtains and flames and shit. I used to think if I died in an evil place, then my soul wouldn't be able to make it to Heaven. But now? Fuck! I mean, I don't care where it goes, as long as it ain't here. So whaddya wanna do? I'll kill the fuck.

I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that... but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror. Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies. I remember when I was with the Tinman and the Lion. Seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a munchkin village to kill the children. We left the camp after we had killed all the children, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there and they had come and hacked off every little arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a ruby... a ruby bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that. The genius. The will to do that. Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we. Because they could stand that these were not monsters. These were flying monkeys... trained primates. These monkeys who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love... but they had the strength... the strength... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those flying monkeys our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have monkeys who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgment... without judgment. Because it's judgment that defeats us.

OK, I think we've taken this as far as it can go.

Looks as if they're expending serious energy trying to drag the decaying corpse of children's fiction out of the shallow grave where, um...

People always used to say that mass access to broadcast media would lead to the blooming of a thousand flowers. In fact, all it does is make you realise how most people really aren't talented at all.

My guess is that Ewan Telford is a pseudonym for whoever made this film.

Both disturbing in their lack of anything.
