Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) Rated PG

Oz_-_The_Great_and_PowerfulA small town magician gets swept away to the land of Oz. A prequel to the Wizard of Oz. Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff

I thought this version might be a little hokey but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I thought they did a good job with keeping the story of the Wizard of Oz true while telling the back story to the wizard. I also really appreciated the homage to the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz. If  you are an Oz fan this is a can’t miss, even though it isn’t a perfect film. It is a film that entertains and doesn’t cause holes in the original story.

  1. Good Site, Carry on the great job. Thank you.

  2. “I’m just not the man you wanted me to be,” Franco’s Kansas conjurer confesses well into his attempt to transform himself into a wizard come to rescue Oz from the torments of the witch, and this is certainly not the film many longtime L. Frank Baum fans will have wanted to see. Just as dispiriting as Walter Murch’s 1985 revisitation, Return to Oz, Sam Raimi’s oddly stilted production is, both in structure and some specifics, a vague rehash of Victor Fleming’s beloved classic, only with the wizard character, rather than Dorothy, being introduced to the wonders and terrors of Oz.
