The prequel to the famous 'Wizard of Oz' has arrived at cinemas starring Michelle Williams, James Franco, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz. The story provides us with a magical journey that is spectacular in 3D.
The first Wizard of Oz film was made back in 1939, which was about Dorothy who finds herself in Oz and wants to go back home. It has become a sensation with many musicals and other films being created. This new film however is a prequel to the story and focuses on Oscar Diggs (Oz) and how he ends up in the wonderful world of Oz. I saw this film in 3D and it was definitely an experience to remember.
After a few years away, Will Smith is back, and is reviving one of his big franchises in the process. Unfortunately, there seems to be a general consensus of "meh", possibly down to the disappointing preceding sequel. However, fans of the first need worry not, as the franchise is back on track.
Having enjoyed all of the Marvel movies to date (especially Iron Man onwards), I was looking forward to this film, but not quite as much as a lot of others seemed to be. I've been far more excited about Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises and Brave, but this has proven to be everything I hoped it could be and more.
This film sees its co-writer and producer, Buffy creator Joss Whedon, finally reunited with the horror genre, alongside several of his TV alumni. What could possibly go wrong? Truthfully, I can't decide if this is absolute genius or absolute garbage. Upon reflection, I'd have to say it's an equal balance of both.
