"I don't want to be a good man... I want to be a great one."

With Tim Burton's high-tech reworking of Alice in Wonderland having grossed a substantial sum back in 2010, it was only a matter of time before another famous literary property was given a big-budget update. The result is 2013's Oz the Great and Powerful, which is posited as a prequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. ... read more

Franco? Kunis? Weisz?! Williams?!? Raimi? How did it all go so extremely wrong? The perpetually moving follow up to the magical 1939 film falls so flat that even though there are many call backs (and set ups) to the original, it is hard to draw any actual connection between the two. Thematically it fails, scenically it fails, structurally it fails, atmospherically it fails, characterization it fai... read more

It’s a folly of spectacular proportions to try and recapture the magic of L. Frank Baum’s texts. MGM’s lavish and beloved musical is a milestone of special effects and makeup while simultaneously being a perfect example of big budget (musical) entertainment operating at the highest level. Any and every endeavor to recapture it has only ended in diminished artistic returns or lack of audience... read more

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs pulls one flimflam too many, he is hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz, where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard - and just maybe into a better man as well.

Film Journal 2013 (98 movies items)

" While this won't ever become a favorite of mine, I enjoyed it for what it was-a different L. Frank Baum story. This is the story of how the "Wizard" got to Oz in the first place. The few people I've discussed this with hated it because they loved 'Wizard of Oz' so very much and it didn't follow the same story. What I had to explain was that 'Wizard' changed the story, not 'Oz'. There were never any red shoes in the book. Did you know that? They were put in for the musical because it was b"

Failed movie franchises part 2 (155 movies items)

" Note: Disney has already approved plans for a sequel to Oz before the movie was release. 4 years later, nothing new has been said about a sequel. At this rate, it seems like Sam Raimi and the other cast members have move on to other projects."

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" A prequel/reboot movie that tries to explain some of the background to events we saw i "The Wizard of Oz", but is actually it's own creature as it is based on the novels. In tone it feels very much like a studio picture with a few brief moments where the true nature of the director comes through. James Franco is miscast in the leading role trying to channel a kind of Johnny Depp performance that hits and misses at the same time. I was never a big fan of the original either and this one also did"

Sam Raimi Films - Ranked (14 movies items)

" I would say that the biggest problem with Oz the Great and Powerful is that it lacks magic, or any sense of wonder and excitement. For all its visual dazzle, it fails to take me anywhere interesting. There's nothing in it that particularly sticks with me, and it doesn't take me anywhere I want to be. It's a dull experience. If you can call it an experience to begin with. Another problem is that there's basically no character to hold on to here. James Franco plays a rather boring version of him"
