"THE WIZARD" isn't any moniker or fun new twist on the classic story of a little girl from Kansas who gets caught in a tornado an... read more

"Were video games as popular in the late 80s as this movie potrays? If so, wow. If you're a gamer, this is a must-see. Oh and it has Lucas and the Powerglove. So bad!"

Fictional "woobies": they suffer well! (73 movies items)

"The woobie of this movie was the traumatized little boy, "Jimmy Woods" aka "The Wizard (walking in the middle in this picture). Most drama movies have one main woobie that stands out. Note: it's not always the one who is "hurt most", but usually the one that feels guilty. Guilt (especially misplaced guilt) creates woobies! Jimmy is traumatized and feels survivor guilt over the death of his fraternal twin sister Jenny, who drowned, and doesn't speak. "

Guilty Pleasures (34 movies items)

"If I was on Siskel and Ebert, I would give this film a thumbs down, but still, there is some good things about this film, and while I don't necessarily think the good overshadows the bad, I still think it's fun watching nevertheless."

Product Placement in Movies. (17 movies items)

"Well, the entire movie is basically a long commercial for Super Nintendo and Mario Bros. and the Nintendo Power Glove. Also mentioned: Nintendo Power Magazine and I believe Ho-Ho's as well as Twinkies are mentioned at least once (isn't there a scene where Jimmy and his older brother escape Jimmy's group home in the back of a Hostess Cake delivery van? What do you know, there is! And Wonder Bread is also an accomplice! "

"Basically a 90 minute Nintendo commercial but I loved it as a kid, so if you were a child and had either the first Nintendo or the Super Nintendo and you were a veedya-game nerd, you might like this. Totally late 80s, too. "
