I may have mentioned that the kids have been watching Minnie’s Wizard of Dizz pretty much non stop this week. Lucky for Alan and I, we were able to enjoy some Oz of our own. We missed Oz the Great and Powerful when it made it’s theater rounds – I was 14 months pregnant (ok, like 38 weeks) when the movie hit theaters and it just wasn’t a good idea to tempt fate.
So the other night once the kids were in bed we settle down to watch it. It. Was. AWESOME.
Seriously. Well done Disney.
Oz the Great and Powerful
Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great And Powerful, from the director of the Spider-Man trilogy,follows Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics. When Diggs is hurled away to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot — until he meets three witches (Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams), who aren’t convinced he’s the great wizard everyone’s expecting. Reluctantly drawn into epic problems facing Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it’s too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity — and even some wizardry — Oscar transforms himself into the great wizard and a better man as well.
Needless to say we enjoyed it. I would not recommend it for younger kiddos, so be sure to watch it before your younger children do.
