  • There's no Judy Garland songs, no Scarecrow, no Tin Man, no Cowardly Lion. There's also no simplicity, no magic, no truth. show more

  • That's why the more you like the Judy Garland film, the more you might appreciate Oz the Great and Powerful. Appreciate. Enjoy. Admire. Be glad to see. Have fun with ... But as for love - well, love will be harder to come by. show more

  • Oz the Great and Powerful, like so many products of movie studios that have lost their way, is a Tin Man of epic proportions — bright and shiny, with no heart. show more

    I\'ll stick with the original. This was a long and boring movie. Even the acting was bad. I think James Franco is overrated. The porcelain doll was annoying and added nothing to the movie.
