Wonderful Land of Oz
This was a very great movie, and I consider it child-friendly. It was not violent, there was no sex or cursing. It was a true magical Disney adventure. I think it did a great combination of the books and the original 1939 film. It was the kind of fantasy-movie that, when the camera panned over the beautiful scenery, I wanted to just jump in the screen and explore the re-imagining of Oz, which has not happened in a long time for me. It was imaginative, funny, and exciting. I felt like I was glued to my seat the whole time.
My mother and I saw it, and we are big fans of the original film/books. I honestly don't understand why anyone would dislike this movie, and I think that if anyone considers this film inappropriate to children is reading too much into it. There were plenty of references to Frank Baum, his books, and the original film that you had to be fairly alert to notice, and the story itself was well-paced and showed progress in the character's physical and emotional journey.
