OZ the Great and Powerful
No one does Oz better then Disney! Ever since 1939 we have loved this film and Sam Raimi gives this a whole new feeling and a whole new Oz world.
It starts in black and white and then into amazing production design with all the right camera moves!
James Franco, the beloved Wizard “Oscar Diggs,” who is a small-time Circus Magician who pulls one flim-flam too many as he finds himself hurled into the fantastical land of Oz.
Franco’s performance is wonderful and straight forward, as he transforms himself into the great and powerful Wizard, who is drawn into the epic problems facing the land of Oz and its inhabitants.
As for the three witches Glenda, Evanora, and Theodora (played by Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Mila Kunis), each comes off as having it all and a great time. I loved their costumes!
This film is all about family fun and it’s a little scary but kids will love it.
I give it a 9 out of 10!
