I saw this movie twice this week. Once on Tuesday with my son and his fiance and we saw it without 3D because neither of them like to watch 3D movies. I, on the other hand, love them. All through the movie I kept thinking how wonderful everything would look in 3D so yesterday I went by myself and watched the 3D version. Fantastic!!! Awesome story of how Oz got there in the first place. James Franco was the perfect Oz. I would venture to say he may well become the new Johnny Depp. It's hard to give a review of this wonderful film without adding a spoiler so I'll just close by saying you will love how everything leading up to the end plays out and how it relates to the future coming of Dorothy. Hmm...will Disney now do a remake with Dorothy and the gang? I'd go see it :)

Except for Avatar, this is the finest visual film ever made! Avatar made 2.8 billion world wide and I expect this film to come in second. The script is outstanding. The actors carefully picked. The visual effects are just like Avatar and I'm really glad I saw it in 3D. The story might go along with Judy Garland's "The wizard of Oz;" otherwise, there are no similarities. This film is visually wonderful. Even the opening reeked of amazing talent. They had to spend $200 million plus making this film and it shows. This is a must see for the whole family and you will not be disappointed.

This is a really good movie. You hardly know the two hours have passed. There are parts that are a little scary for really young children and the 3D is a little blurry at times if you're too close to the screen. So you definitely want to be watching from back a few rows.
I really liked the story. I was wondering how they were going to relate this back to the classic story, but they made it a prequel that fits perfectly.
Go see it, you won't be disappointed.

Great movie and not just for kids. I especially liked the monkey voiced by Zach Braff. It was cool to see what they came up with for the back story of the wizard and the three witches.
