Sick Screencappin’

AsSceneOnTV 0019.jpg

I was sick in bed this weekend so all I did was Netflix and screencap…and drink beer as if it were medicine. Another reason why I am not your role model. Anyway, I have another post coming at chu later today, but I wanted to share my favorite scene from Return to Oz, one of my top ten films from childhood.

when you're sick during the weekend ya just start screencappin'

I loved Princess Mombi and her cabeza switcharoo. It was so fucking scary slash glamorous to baby Marie.

Donchu know I’ve been planning on doing a shoot to recreate this scene. LADIES, are you ready? Don’t worry, I will leave your pretty little heads attached.

Her pad was the shit, was it not? All that crystal…makes me want to grab a bat. I just decided to do a future post on my dream house with the appropriate screencap references sometime.

Look at that BED

Love that red key too!

You can get that bed at Ikea. Seriously.

(This is one of my favourites too. The head switching totally stuck in my own head (ahah) even after all those years).

I loved this movie as a kid. I saw it when it was in the theater and it really scared me. I would always play that scene with my barbies.

For some reason the scene that sticks with me is the one where she finds the key in the mud. I went around our house collecting all the old looking keys after that. This is such a rad movie… Gold.

@SJ – I love old ornate keys! So pretty and kind of sad for some reason, no?

My boyfriend got me to watch this a year or so ago. I was astonished by how wonderful it was given that I hadn’t even heard of it until then. Great screen caps!

@marie -
Yes! I feel that too… Like there’s an awesome wardrobe somewhere (a la Narnia) that is just waiting for this key.
I don’t know if you had a lot of them in the U.S. but when I was a kid in Australia (OZ!) built in closets were not a regular thing so we always had wardrobes that had lovely little keys. Good times.
I horded all our keys in a little box. What a creep.
