My question is, since the extended scarecrow dance was cut during previews, what does the final shot of the song, in the final cut of the film, originate from? I've always been curious about the editing of this film. There's a big continuity jump right before he sings "I would dance and be merry", and I'm not convinced those are the lyrics he's actually mouthing. But he falls down as if to complete the song. Had they shot this as an alternate ending just in case? I suppose so. There are a lot of points in the extended dance where he falls down, to the point this could have legitimately been an alternate take of "I would dance and be merry" in the final cut, but his losing stuffing and Dorothy picking it up all seems very carefully considered as an ending to the scene. Were they still reshooting Oz that late?


Justin Hoskie: "I feel like it must have been a reshot. Reshots were taking place until "early June" and the dance was cut by the June 18 preview, believed to be the third one."

The sparse instrumentation of the original pre-record suggests that when the Scarecrow dances, the music should become a little more modern, a little jazzier. The score for the final version didn't do that.

I don't know whether I should be happy or disappointed about this (supposing Oja Kodar doesn't throw another wrench into the process of completing this).

My favorite thing about writing this is that I found out that, in the original edit, Dorothy tells Professor Marvel that "Auntie Em was even going to let them kill Toto yesterday for biting Miss Gulch," implying that she ran away the day before.

Implying that it would've taken her at least a good solid 5 or so hours to get back.

Meaning that no one noticed she was gone for a day and some change.

Meaning she should've just stayed in Oz because obviously no one gives a hoot about her.

"Shatterproof" deleted scene from Cannibal! the Musical. (Only the fight with the guy in the fur vest and codpiece was used.) This song was heard in the original trailer but I didn't know they actually shot it. I doubt anyone cares, but ...

that article is fucking retarrrrrded. filled with contradictions, like most people who hate on the movie.

* "why does Superman, an alien, sacrificing himself to stop Doomsday, an alien created by an evil human, give Batman faith in people?"
because batman has accepted superman as a human by this point. The personal coincidence that they both had mothers with the same names (and that all superman wants when batman is about to kill him: for someone to save his mother) breaks through batman's cynical scarred brain and convinces him that superman IS human.

so. when superman then sacrifices him- this gives batman faith in people.

* "you'd think that batman would go through an arc where he learns to stop killing, but no" (see below)
"he doesn't kill superman because? martha?" (see above)
"he doesn't brand lex (dooming him to death) because?" (see above)

* etc.

Snyder starts the movie by saying "if you want to see these epic fights, you have to accept that tons die." His whole point with these past 2 movies is : lets ground these myths in human problems.
(So when the movie ends with another epic fight, it's wrong to assume snyder didn't know he was making a cynical statement)

i get that nobody wanted human problems.
we're all soft boys in grown bodies who want these spectacle movies to regurgitate the simple myths we grew up on. but he didn't do that. what he did was much more interesting.

i think because snyder looks like a jock, people dismiss him as a brain-dead michael bay. despite the string of fascinating heavy movies he's made. despite his background as painter.

thbbbt.

Well, no. Snyder's worldview is incompatible with Superman. No one who enjoys Ayn Rand should be let within miles of the character.
