Great Movie

I love the fact that they were ablet o keep someof the original parts, and it showed what made the second sister so evil. My husband and I really enjoyed watching it. It is a must see in 3D to get the full effect. I'm going to purchase the movie as soon as it's available.

30 bucks and 2 hours of my life I'll never see either again

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.

Very Nice Backstory for the original Wizard of Oz

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.

Oz The Great and Powerful is one of the best.

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.

terrible let down. if this movie was suppose to happen BEFORE the wizard of oz, then it should have been a prelude to it. the ruby slippers were non-existant. it would have been interesting to see which witch wound up with the slippers, and how and the power in them. for glinda and oz to be romantically involved was so off the wall, it was ludicrous. in the original "wizard of oz", they did not know each other, so how would romance be possible if this movie occured before that? i would not recomment this movie to any true "wizard of oz" fan. the movie as a prequel is irrelevant and very disappointing.
