Review: Oz The Great & Powerful


A small-time magician is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches.


This is one of those times that you realize that you can’t get this time wasted back, I wish I saw another B-rated movie, at least in that case my expectations wouldn’t have been so high. A Disney movie with an amazing line up of actors and a reinvented old story, it was bound to be good, or so I thought. People said that John Carter was bad, but in my experience, it was misunderstood and a very good movie, they just marketed badly, this movie got a lot of marketing, and it was just a disappointment. I remember watching Alice and Wonderland and that was an exquisitely done remake, and I even remember how great Johnny Depp was as the Mad Hatter, he was seriously mad! But this movie was not good, and everything felt off and I was waiting for something to go right, I just didn’t know what it was, and James Franco is an excellent actor, but this wasn’t a good fit. I wish I didn’t go into this movie.
