We really loved the film and it was clear the rest of the audience did also. Lots of cheering and oohs and ahas. The colors will brilliant and the ending was great.

1939 Wizard of Oz has been my favorite movie since I was a kid. So,I had really anxiously awaited the premiere of this movie, and had hyped it up in my head. This could be the reason I couldn't shake the feeling of being let down. Overall I really enjoyed the movie. I felt that some of the scenes were horribly corny. Especially in the beginning of the movie. I saw that they were trying to pay homage to the original, and give people like me the sense of nostalgia, but also reach to newcomers and show off the new movie technology and 3D. I just didn't think they married the two quite right. Close but no cigar. I respect the effort. My only other complaint was the plot depth of the witches..that left me wanting to see a bit more of they back stories, to how they got to the point at which they were in the movie. Fell a little bit flat for me there. But the story is plausible, and did a good job filling in lines of how the wiz got there, and set it up quite nicely for Dorothy to arrive.

i went to see this movie not long ago with my family. It's weird seeing James Franco play this type of role in a movie. The movie is great for the younger crowed. But if you are looking for this movie to compare to the Wizard of Oz, you might have a bit of trouble sitting through the movie.
Other than that, I thought it was pretty good!

An Overpriced Underwritten Waste Of Time. If you're into a gimmicky 3D special effects laden movie, then Oz is for you. But if you want magic and the story and the chemistry, then save your money for a real movie. 3D effects and 1D story.
MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. PLASTIC CORPORATE GIMMICK. NEXT!

What a complete disappointment! Combination of bad acting (not to mention bad casting), less than appealing costumes, weak storyline, & not-so-stellar 'special effects' made this one of the worst movies I've seen in years!
Not sure why this movie even happened. Save your time AND $ for something worth seeing!
