I went to the theater yesterday with my family, no body is happy. The movie starts so slow and with a 20 minutes long withe and black intro, then it gets a little better but any way it still boring. This movie is more for kids, but anyway too scary for the little ones. This was our experience watching it in 3D: my mother in law take a nap in the middle of the movie, my 4 year old son was too scared of evil monkeys and monsters, my 8 year old son told me twice "you choose the wrong movie" my wife said "it is too long" and I'm thinking that I wasted my money. BTW: it is the worst acting of Milan Kunis.

Oz The Great and Powerful is much better then the original. The story went in a different direction that isn't the same as the first story and I like the new version so much more then the original.

I love how they made this backstory of where/how the wizard came to the Emerald City. Cinematography was fantastic. I saw it in 3D and definitely thought it was worth it. There are few movies that are.

I thought the story was thin and contrived, but they made up for it with really bad acting. I can't blame the actors as much as the script. It did have soem decent 3D effects, but seemed more like a showcase for 3D capabilities rather than an enhancement to the movie.
In my opinion, wait 'till it comes out on a pay channel, or better yet, until it ends up in the 99 cent rack at the local convenience store.

I am a huge fan of the Broadway musical Wicked" though surprisingly not as big a fan of the original Wizard of Oz. I loved this movie from start to finish. Great cast (especially Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis), great graphics and just the right amount of camp. Loved Findley and China girl. I would see it again!
