But today I won’t talk about Edward Franco or Oz. I want to talk about a movie which is very similar to “Oz the Great and Powerful”. It’s called “Jack the Gaint Slayer”.
The story of the movie is based on a famous fairy tale called “Jack and the beans”. But it is different from the original story. In the fairytale story, Jack is a Bad Example, he is greedy person. He asked a wicth for those beans. The beans can reach to the Valley of the Giants. In the Valley of the Gaints, there are full of gold. Jack want to be rich so he want to the Valley of Gaints. But in the movie, Jack is a hero. He opened a gate by a mistake. The gate connected two world: Vally of the Gaints and Human kingdom. Jack go to the Vally and try to save the princess.
Nowadays, writers love to recompose other stories and compose their own new stories. But think some of the stories lost their quondam meaning. Just like “Jack and the Beans” this story want to warn people don’t be greedy. But the moive”Jack the Gaint Slayer” is just a typical heroism movie which is boring and meaningless.
