Oz

Has anyone seen Oz the Great and Powerful? Thoughts?

Beginning is a little slow, but overall a good movie. I'd give it a B+. I liked Finley.

Saw it and loved it! I love the wizard of oz so I was really excited about this movie being made. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Epcot will keep the oz area after the flower festival so I can see it when I'm there this fall.

We saw it and loved it, but I would recommend NOT seeing it in 3D. There are many bright and vibrant colors that get muted in 3D and I think this is a major problem. Yes, we saw it in 3D, only because we got to see it for free and that is what was offered. We will go to see it again, but definitely in 2D.

Saw it last night and we really liked it. The only thing I'd really complain about is that for a Disney movie - there was NOTHING at the end of the movie! So disappointing!

I agree they didn't really stay consistent with the real movie - there were scenery things they should have researched and didn't. This generation probably won't notice.

I seriously doubt that. It looks pretty temporary to me and very much for the festival.

Went last night and my wife and I both liked it a lot! I don't get Michelle Williams at all though...she was the only part of the movie that bothered me. I just think she's kind of flat and emotionless.

I thought it was great!! I didn't think the idea was to redo the movie but to sort of back story how oz came to be, in a 2013 form!! A must see!!

Did everyone spot the "new" ride if the movie goes well?

No...because Disney does not plan on building rides off it's movies.

Maybe if it makes 2 billion and spawns sequels - perhaps.
But not until then

My husband and I saw it yesterday. I agree about the beginning being slow but necessary. Not a huge James Franco fan so I was so so about him. I thought the visuals were amazing but it got cheesy at the end for me. Loved Finley and China girl.

I was disappointed...I didn't really like James Franco's performance. I thought Mila Kunis' and Michelle Williams' performances were a bit cartoonish, I don't know, I just felt like everyone was over acting or something.

I loved the China doll and Finley, and of course there were amazing effects. Visually it was beautiful...although some of the 3D was too "trick" heavy for me and I found myself getting annoyed with that.

I just think James Franco's character (perhaps his performance of the character?) was just too unlikable and I never really bought into it for that reason I think.

Maybe I expected too much, I really wanted to love it. I loved the original Wizard of Oz so much and I really wanted this to be a big hit and wonderful.
