Saw this on 20/09/2013
I expected Oz the .... to be extremely horrible since I did not like the trailer much. I liked it much more that what i had anticipated. Actually I liked James Franco's acting in this film. He was not doing what he really does in here, but he is not bad while doing comedy. He acts precisely in the way in which all showbiz magicians would behave. I have seen a lot of magic shows and I felt that Franco was more natural than most of the magicians. As for the witches, Michelle Williams looked most attractive, but I liked Rachael Weisz's acting more. Mila Kuniz was not her usual self, but she was ok-ok. The best things about this film is the flying monkey(who along with Franco brings out a lot of wit) and the China girl( girl made of POP who brings in a lot of sentimentality into this otherwise barren adventure). Visually this film is extraordinary, but somewhere in the beginning, it felt that the characters were cut off from somewhere and pasted into a colourfull atmosphere.
