Alan Jones
Radio Times

One of Hollywood's quintessential productions, this musical adaptation of L Frank Baum's classic fable is probably the most beloved fantasy film of all time and the ultimate family picture.

This family classic long ago left the realm of being mere entertainment to emerge as a cultural touchstone for generations of Americans.

The classic MGM musical from 1939 has been lovingly restored and up-converted to 3D.

The Wizard of Oz is the cinematic equivalent of high-end wine, in that it gets better with age. The difference is that while wine must remain unopened to increase in value, the film positively thrives on it being tasted and shared over and over and over.

The old-fashioned, old-school wizardry of MGM still looks impressive to me today...

Seven decades on, it's still wholly transporting, even without the benefit of the bells and whistles that are part of the CGI age.

MGM's fantastic IMAX 3D conversion for the The Wizard of Oz's 75th anniversary underlines rather than obscures most of the film's visual pleasures, reminding us (if we'd managed to forget) just how glorious L. Frank Baum's strange world is.

Hey, Dorothy actually has freckles in IMAX. Glinda's floating sphere is mesmerizing. The flying monkeys are creepier than ever. The Lollipop Guild even more disturbing - are these guys having a seizure?

Knowing that it was made without a single computer, and entirely by human ingenuity, makes it all the more worthy of marveling at, 75 years and an added dimension later.

It's a feature built for bigness, with its immersive qualities still potent after all these years. The IMAX 3D treatment is merely a fun exhibition detour.

Even swollen to IMAX size, the movie is sharper than you've ever seen it, and the vaudevillian brilliance of the choreography (and Ray Bolger's straw-boned tumbling) is entirely undiminished.
