So I was asked by my seven year old son to take him to see the new film “Oz : The Great and Powerful” I’d seen the trailers on television and I’d seen the billboards but I honestly got more out of the movie than expected.
“The Oz” is based off of the original “Wizard of Oz” although they put a nice spin on it. Instead of Dorothy from Kansas, there was the magician named Oz from Kansas. After an embarrassing moment in Kansas, he got caught in a storm and woke up in a fantasy like land known as Oz. Familiar right? Ok.
After meeting with the three witches of the land he learned that he needed to find and defeat the wicked witch in order to become the wizard and make the land full of good.
So first he met a beautiful witch. They formed a nice bond and she started to fall for him. Next he met another witch. She didn’t trust him. So she formed a distance between him and the first witch. Causing the first witch to become sad and heart broken. As she shed tears they burned scars in her face. And she became very bitter. That stood out to me because I think women do that a lot. A relationship doesn’t work out with a guy and the girl gets heartbroken. It scars her. She doesn’t want to let go and she may carry that hurt onto the next guy she meets.
Oz then met the third witch. She ended up being the good witch. As soon as she found out his plan she supported him the entire way. He confessed he was a imposter magician and he may not be the right wizard for the land. Knowing this information she didn’t give up on him. Instead she acknowledged his strengths, power and intelligence.She reminded him of what he was good at so he could defeat the wicked witch. This stood out to me because I believe that some women forget how to do that. Women tend to forget how to support. The third witch he met was destined to become his queen. Yet she didn’t focus on that. She focused on how to make him believe in himself to get things done. When the people of the land doubted him, she stood up for him. When enemies came their way to fight, Oz and this third witch were ready with a game plan. He remembered what he was capable of and went through with the plan to make the people happy but also because he had a major supporter right behind him.
Ladies how can you expect a man to prosper if you’re only pointing out his have nots, insecurities and flaws? Focus on the positive and you will be amazed with the turn around. A queen is there to hold it down. A queen is there to support and sometimes direct when needed. If you can’t do these things, don’t fuss at him about his problems. Instead build yourself up. See what you can improve. But in all be there for him.
I mean who do you think became his queen? The weak bitter witch or the supportive inspiring witch?
If you’ve seen the movie if like to know your thoughts!
