Magical Visuals, Uninspired Plot Equals a Family Film?
Intended to be a prequel to the novel “The Wonderful World of Oz” and indirectly tied to the 1939 classic film, director Sam Raimi’s “Oz The Great and Powerful” has a very standard and linear plot with the added extra trimmings to try and appeal to its fans. Disney plans to pull off a visual and aural feast similar to what it had done to Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”. It is what Hollywood does when it opts to put modern visual style and great …

I'll admit my bias right away......several of my friends were background extras in this film. However, I have seen several movies with friends who were extras and disliked the film very much.      With that said, I was actually not expecting much. I expected all flash and little to no content. What I saw was something else.      Yes, the visuals were stunning. I saw it in 3D, so I got to experience all the effects at their full effect. However, even if …

The original Wizard of Oz from 1939 has always amused me.  For as much as people yell at me for not caring about whether or not the movie follows the source material, I'm always surprised that The Wizard of Oz has become so big as a film that people kind of sort of forget it's even based off a book (and it really IS nothing like the book... like, at all).  This always amused me.  It's a great movie, but sort of proves why I have the "Who cares if it didn't follow …

Rented this movie over the weekend and it put me to sleep. James Franco is a charleton working in a traveling circus as a magician.

'Oz The Great And Powerful'...Not Great But Loads Of Fun For The Family (video)
'We're off to see the Wizard...The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz'...except...      In Sam Raimi's 'Oz The Great And Powerful' he's not exactly wonderful or a wizard.      In fact he' Oscar Diggs (James Franco) a 3rd rate circus magician/con artist who escapes from Kansas in a hot air balloon, only to land in the beautiful, magical Land of Oz.                   &n …

Saw this in 3D. Stunning visuals and creativity. It's one of those few movies that inspires me to go back to the cinema again. I hate wearing the 3D glasses though!    Highly predictable plot and more of a movie for kids than adults. Still, I was pleasantly entertained!
