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.

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 have been wanting to go see this movie since I first heard it was coming out last year. I had a baby in November 2012 and haven't been out since. I chose this time to have my first outing and went to the 9 o'clock showing. That was my first mistake. I'm usually in bed by 9. I was tired when I got there. Still I enjoyed the movie. It was really well put together and I loved how they told the story of the true wicked witch. I fell asleep a couple times despite my great effort otherwise. The "fight" scene was what got me. It was just kind of drawn out. One thing that surprised me though, especially at a 9pm showing, was that there were a WIDE variety of viewers. From ages 4 to well above 40. All around a great movie, but I don't know if it was worth losing sleep and time with my baby. I could have dealt with waiting for the DVD.

Ok, I wasn't the old version remake but I liked it a lot! I lived the china doll and the friendly monkey. The Glenda Good witch didn't seem to be the best actress but of spite of that I really liked the movie! My little girl lived it. Scary enough to be exciting for her and not scary enough to give her nightmares. I would even see it twice!! Love it love it!!!
