    Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

    Though there are some impressive visuals, and James Franco is always fun to watch, "Oz" is a letdown. The Director and screenwriters try so hard to please so many "markets" that they can't assemble a coherent film. It's a half-hour too long, and way too scary for little kids. Those 3D monsters fly at us too often. Then Franco has his lothario moments with each of three witches that are sure to have most kids squirming and kicking the seats. When the Munchkins eventually arrive, it turns into a musical! So what is it: an adventure, a horror film, a musical or a love story? Fast answer: it's a mess.
