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.

Sooooo boring! my daughters were bored out of their minds. The original was and will always be the best! The actors were so dramatic, it was pathetic!

The film is stuffed with three endings too many. You can't blame Raimi for wanting to give us our money's worth. But after a while, you just want him to get to the Happily Ever After already. Full Review

This trip isn’t so notable. It’s not bad. Some bits are enjoyable. But ultimately, other than some genuinely impressive visuals, it never makes a compelling-enough case to justify its existence. Full Review

Oz the Great and Powerful tells the story of how the Wizard came to Oz, answering a question I suspect no one was asking, but with considerable digital wizardry. Full Review

An amorphous melange of ill-fitting reference points and misappropriated aesthetics, a lumbering family blockbuster both tiresome and wholly indistinct. Full Review

Don’t be fooled by the smoke and mirrors. There is nothing here that is great, or powerful. Worst of all, there’s nothing here that even feels like Oz. Full Review
