Good effects, that's it.

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 starring James Franco as..himself

Visually amazing. James Franco was flat and it kind of made me wonder if that was really his fault. Terrible script and pretty awkward 'school play-like' acting. I don't know what went wrong in making this into a decent movie. It wasn't terrible, kids may love it for all the visual effects but It was way too corny and unfortunately, it takes you most of the movie to begin to feel like you want to take a sh#t on yourself. After Avengers, I was hopefully about Disney now acquiring a monopoly on all of my childhood entertainment but after this..I remain skeptical on their ability to handle Star Wars. I might buy this when it finally reaches the $7.99 value bin at Best Buy, but only for the Reward Zone Points. MY RATING: C-

Good but not great

Beautiful cinematography good story but James Franco just did not fit as the wizard. The witches were good in there roles but the wizard just phoned in his performance. Too bad it could have been epic but it was just missing something.

Bad

This movie is so boring, I left in the middle. The acting was mediocre at best. Not even the 3D effects can save it. My recommendation is to save your money for another movie. This one isn't worth it.

Somewhere in OZ

From the opening credits to the end notes the visual effects are quiet impressive. Many of the scenes in OZ are breathtaking. Although the storyline may be a little "stretched", all in all it was a tale well told and easy to follow. And YES some of the flick may NOT be suitable for the young ones (not to many). Do go especially if you love Disney, 3D, and/or fantasy.
