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.

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.

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.

There was a lot of stuff that they couldn't duplicate due to copyright issues related to the 1939 movie. They had to go back to the books themselves for source material instead. I've heard a lot of people complaining that, for example, there is no reference to the ruby slippers. The ruby slippers were not in the original books - they were strictly a product of the creative process in 1939. So Disney couldn't reference them in the new movie. Disney wanted to be very careful that there wouldn't be anything they could get sued over in regards to Oz.

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!!

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

I enjoyed it. I had an issue with Mila Kunis for the 2nd part of the movie. I thought she was great in the beginning but lacked something that I just could not put my finger on for the 2nd half of the movie. The scenery was beautiful. Loved the poppy fields. Costuming was beautiful too!
