There's no place like home

The Wizard of Oz is my favorite childhood film. I don't remember when I first watched the movie, but I do know that it was my first huge obsession. My parents video taped it for me and I watched that VHS out. I memorized every commercial played during the commercial breaks. I literally watched it so much and for so long that the tape finally went kaput and stopped working. (That was a rough day).

I loved Dorothy so much because of Judy Garland's heavenly voice and of course the ruby slippers. Even though the Wicked Witch was scary, I loved her too. Really, each of the characters in the film held a special meaning for me.

The movie tells a touching story that can be appreciated by children and adults alike. If you have never seen The Wizard of Oz, you should rent it today - you won't be disappointed.
