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.

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.

The name of my salon is Wicked so I am a real fan! But this movie was terrible. Not even worth a Redbox rental. Could have been a great movie but they blew it.

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.

Sam Raimi did a great job matching the flavor of the original movie. It's a welcome addition to the Oz story line and a great all-around fantasy film. The film runs a little long for young children and there are elements that can be extremely scary for them, but pre-teens and teens should enjoy the film along with the adults. It's not a perfect film by any stretch of the imagination, there are many questions that arise throughout the film, but if you just sit back and enjoy the film for what it is, you'll have a great time. James Franco is a great choice for the wizard and Mila Kunis is amazing, by far the best character in the film. The film is funny, touching, exciting, and wonderful. Go see it now!
