The beginning was pretty drawn out and very boring. The story was good but it was slow in some parts. I wouldn't see it again...didn't blow my hair back.

It was good, the special effects were great, was disappointed in the story line and the witches. Mila just did not have it to be a witch nice or not. And Glinda was not elegant as you would have thought she would be. LOVED the China Doll girl...but could have waited for the dvd.

The movie was a little long and had a lot of down time (for little kids). The acting was great and the colors/graphics were amazing. However, overall, I thought the movie was a little more boring than I expected. Wait for DVD instead!

Did you like the film?
I enjoyed this film immensely. I feel that it will become an instant Disney classic and that Oz fans will love it.
What'd you think of the acting, directing, cinematography, writing, etc?
For the most part, I felt the acting was very good. My favorite character(s) were Theodora/The Wicked Witch of The West, Finley and China Girl. Those were also Robert's (my boyfriend) favorite characters. And the stand-out character for me, was Theodora/The Wicked Witch of The West played by Mila Kunis. I enjoyed the cinematography and CGI that they used which was mixed with real sets. China Girl was definitely the highlight of the CGI and she looked absolutely beautiful. The writing/dialog was also very well done.
Is this for kids, adults, any age?
If your child can watch "The Wizard of Oz", then I see no reason why they can't see this film.
Overall I give this film a 9/10 rating and highly recommend it.

I went into this movie with low expectations but left with a good impression. The environment of Oz was executed wonderfully. The set, backgrounds, CGI, and magical world of Oz over rides the character aspect of the story. Hence, the characters are difficult to hate or love, but rather just exercise indifference. The actors are talented, I just think the environment over powers the acting but that said, I was happy and impressed with the production. It starts off very differently and it is innovative in presenting a magical world. Though there are many nay sayers, this movie is not as bad as some say. Kids loved it, they were laughing and talking through out the film, asking questions. It sets the stage for The Wizard of Oz (which I hope Disney is working on a remake), and it was an over top, theatrical, film. I'd say, if you have to, go see it. It's not as bad as everyone says.
