Pros:Great story and characters. Wonderful musical.
Cons:Visuals fake at points.
The Bottom Line: Movie is a must buy. Everything about the film is spectacular, and the special features add more excitement.
I’m not here like everyone else to tell you how great I think the movie is personally. My opinion doesn’t matter when it comes to you wasting 20 bucks on this classic. The movie has obviously touched everyone’s childhood however it may not match up to the hearts of children nowadays with new kids’ movies coming out every week. This movie has little flaws incorporated within it but those in it can be very upsetting with first time viewers. The fact that now with the enhancements in picture in sound, you can see the lions’ tail being moved by a string and the obvious fake wall on the yellow brick road to the leading emerald city, can be sometimes upsetting. This movie was clearly meant for older times and not as much as now as far as special effects go, but the many flaws easily are covered up by the humor, songs, happiness, and excitement within the story. Some parts of the film may creep children out (flying monkeys) but in the end fill a big part of the story and make it suspenseful even for the children. Many great musical sequences are included within the film that make you want to get up and sing or even dance. Laughter is included while watching the movie, and happiness because of one young girl from Kansas. Characters and art are fantastic and really bring you into the films magic. In addition to the spectacular musical there are 2 hours of special bonus features. The DVD also includes interviews with munchkins and the children of Judy Garland. There is a section that shows you how the magic was made and really answers some questions you may have had about the set of the film. Overall this movie was a great idea to be released again on DVD but with enhancements and special features. The movie keeps you drawn to the screen and the special effects make it all the more buy. Movie is easy to fall back in love with even now to love forever. RESULTS ARE A MUST BUY.
