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!!!

This is a movie great for kids. They will be happy to see it. As for Disney, I think they missed a wider audience opportunity with this brand. Too bad cause I know there were about a dozen books about Oz when I was a kid. Too low in the age demo, bored to tears, wanted to walk out,

This is a great addition to the Wizard of Oz collection. I am an Oz buff and have dozens of collectibles. For those of you who do not think it ties in with the original you are sadly mistaken.
I though Disney did a great job of coming up with an entertaining movie, colorful, humerous and a movie that is well worth seeing on the big screen. I do not recommend it for really young kids unless you know your kids really well. There were some frightening scenes with the dark forest and the flying monkeys. GO SEE IT while it is still at the movies.

This film surprised me with its depth, deep emotion, great acting, exciting and compelling story. I honestly can say that my eyes "leaked" a few times or yes, I cried. I also exulted in excitement and enchantment and was surprised a few times, even disturbed, because the film does not spare us from the true nature of humans which means you feel the sadness, fear, jealousy, hurt, yet exultatation and excitement of the journey and some special moments of good, hearty, honest laughter. The special effects are dazzllng and totally work to tell the story. Now I know how the wizard of Oz came to be and I am glad for this worthwhile telling of his story, along with some shocking and revelatory moments regarding the 3 witch sisters, too! Go and see it: feel a myriad of emotions, be touched and don't be ashamed to shed a tear or two and be dazzled!

I set up an account just so I could warn you about this movie! It looked good on the previews, but we only stayed 40 minutes then had to walk out due to the really terrible acting. Maybe it gets better after the first 40 minutes... but that seems doubtful to me. If you have very little kids who dont mind terrible acting, maybe it's ok. But if have any desire to avoid really terrible acting.... here's a movie to avoid. Did I mention terrible acting?
