With Sam Raimi behind the camera, and a fantastic female cast (Mila Kunis. Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams), I had expected something more from the Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful. I’m not quite sure what: A darker, gloomier, sexier interpretation of the Land of Oz. But, it is a family film, above all, so I never should’ve expected anymore more than a Tim Burton-esque version of Oz with a f*ck-ton of CGI and an assault of our senses.
“Whatever. I guess. I mean, sure! It’s a movie, and people will see it.”
There’s your blurb, studio marketing people.
