Britney Spears ruled my play count this week again, but that's as saying that the sky's blue or that a bear shits in the woods. 'Mirrors' by Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato's 'Heart Attack' and Bastille's 'Pompeii' still ruled pretty high on my playcounts this past week and as I'm late to posting this can confirm that they've remained pretty constant a few weeks out as well. Also have been feeling nostalgic and so I comprised a #throwback plasylist of pop rock/alternative hits from the past ten years that has also been getting a lot of plays - thus the presence of Metro Station and All American Rejects.
What I Watched
Oz: The Great and Powerful
Honestly, maybe it was because the advertising campaign was so massivce and everywhere for the past year or more, but it really did not meet my expectations. Sam Raimi did an excellent job creating a visually amazing picture that was just as colorful as Tim Burton's throwback to 'Alice in Wonderland' and the actors and actresses did a really good job IMO with the material they were given, but...it just lacked something. The storytelling seemed really stretched out and just lacking. Oh, let me retract something - Mila Kunis was really bad with her character and just didn't seem to be that engaged with the whole thing. I dunno...it was OK and I liked it but I have absolutely no interest in seeing it again either in the theater or on DvD or even on TV, until it's on network TV sometime down in the future. No wonder it's not doing as well as Tim Burton's last try and why Sam Raimi has openly stated that he has no interest in being part of a sequel.
