Courtney Caughey-Stambul: I can’t wait to see ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’

NEW CASTLE — Happy Wednesday!

Who is looking forward to Friday, March 8?

March 8 is the opening day for "Oz the Great and Powerful," one of the most anticipated film releases of this year.

I am a little nervous to see the movie since I am a huge "Wizard of Oz" fan. I don't want to be disappointed.

But I have to say, I felt the same way when I headed to the theatre a few years ago to see a production of "Wicked," and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm hoping this experience will be the same.

In case you haven't heard much about "Oz the Great and Powerful," allow me to fill you in. The movie stars James Franco (of “Spider-Man” fame). Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a magician who finds himself in the fantasy Land of Oz. He is immediately considered by many to be a wizard, but three witches — Glinda, Theodora, and Evanora — aren't so sure.

As Oscar feels compelled to help the people of Oz solve the land's problems, he must find out who is on his side. Thus, he sets out on a journey to become the one and only Wizard of Oz!

The film is produced by Walt Disney Studios.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
