"Oz"

I did, I did as I promised and went to see Australia in the theater. And in spite of its beautiful landscapes, its Baz Luhrmann zany bits that didn't work so well, its racial politics with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, an impossibly evil villain, a darling, earnest child actor, an impossibly slender and frozen-faced Nicole Kidman, and an impossibly hot Hugh Jackman, I think I've already forgotten it.

No! No! Say it isn't so! I will NEVER forget Australia as long as I live - for me, it will forever be the standardS (for it strove for many, many of them) which no film should ever aspire to meet.
