OZ The Pretty Good!

I've read a lot of reviews stating "disappointing", "innocence lost" and other negatives but I don't know what these people expected. Judy Gartland reincarcated as Dorothy and the munchkins giving out candy in the audience? I found the movie entertaining and I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. The story was a prequel so if you thought it was supposed to be a remake of the original, you should have read about it and rented the original instead. Most of the acting was great though I also felt the male lead was a bit miscast. The word Depp comes to mind for a better choice but let's give someone else a chance. Mila was stunning as well as the other 2 witches. I did see 2 scenes that looked like they were green screened and that they could have been done by a home movie maker pertaining to the the takes where they were walking with the yellow flowers behind them. Looked like antique tech. All in all, a good film that made me feel like I saw what made Oz who he was in the original.

Expected more

Was expecting entertainment - but this movie never quite gets there. The story is quite predictable - i realize its a prequel, but the story as a whole was not interesting.

Oz the Great and Powerful

Loved this movie! Every minute was wonderful. My only complaint would be that I thought I bought the 3D version. I will have to go see it again in 3D format. I was confused when I bought the tickets, and a bit mad that I really wanted to see it all alive.

Enjoyable family night out

Some reviewers said they were disappointed because of "adult humor". Besides the comment about the sock being on the door (which wasn't that bad because there was nothing really going on), there wasn't really any adult humor that I noticed. Was it as good as the original? Let's get serious! The Wizard of Oz is a classic and no one should be expecting this movie to compare to it. It was however, a very enjoyable movie to watch. My children loved the monkey, the munchkin named Nook, and the china doll characters. They were the real comedy in the movie. It might not be the reincarnation of the Wizard of Oz, but it was a fun night out. I will be buying the movie on Dvd so I can watch it with my family again.

So Disappointed ...

I expected more from this movie spacial because of just the title alone, OZ. The movie was very poorly made, Graphics were to fake looking, out of place in a sense and the acting was unrealistic as well. I believe i enjoyed only one sense in this move and it was a very short one. I say wait for this movie to be put out on some media platform if you must see it, and save your money for a better movie that is playing in a theater.
