Cue the house drop. Now. Do it.

Oz, the Great and Powerful 3D prequel to the one with Dorothy, is pretty much all that until about five-eighths of the way through when everyone sort of loses interest and kind of shuffles around in metaphysical 2D existential symbiosis until the last ten minutes or so when they all suddenly remember why they are making this movie: FRANCHISE! Also, I thought Munchkins had "no tall people" in Oz's CC&Rs. Must have come later.

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.

3D is the way to see it!

Beautiful colors and landscapes, visually appealing throughout. The movie was good - a couple of surprises, some adult sarcasm thrown in for comedic relief. Overall a good movie, and if you are going to see it, spend the extra money for 3D on this one!

So beautiful to look at, so boring to watch

There are a few really captivating, emotionally engaging, beautifully-acted scenes. Then there's the rest of the movie. It's incredibly slow and expository. I found myself just waiting for something to happen. James Franco is adequate, but the women are far superior, and the movie is completely stolen by the China Doll. It is really gorgeous to look at and almost worth the price of admission just to SEE it. As a designer, the opening titles were incredibly captivating to me.

Oz The Great and Powerful 3D

The effects were great. The characters were very memorable. Children of all ages will enjoy the magical adventure to Oz. The story linked most everything from the original Wizard with Judy Garland. The only thing I didn't see was the story behind the "Ruby Slippers". I will buy the DVD when available and enjoy the movie again and again.
