Last night The Wife and I went to see Oz The Great And Powerful. It was exceptionally good. The movie explains how The Wizard of Oz got up to the land of Oz years before Dorothy arrived.
The movie was much much better than I expected it would be, and I watched critically for discrepancies that would have an effect on Dorthy’s Wizard of Oz, and found none. It was perfect.
I look forward to seeing this movie again, when the DVD comes out, and I am super glad we saw it in the theater. (We were the only two in the theater, it was completely empty except for us, first time and maybe the last that that has ever happened/will happen.)
I strongly strongly recommend you see it on the big screen if you can.
