I’ll give it this much: It’s colorful. It looks like Sam Raimi swallowed a whole bag of skittles and threw up on James Franco. But it also looks kind of neat, and I’m not about to dismiss a movie based on a minute and a half trailer. I guess I just wish it didn’t look so … Henry Selick. But I bet it still rocks. And yes, I’m hedging. Equivocating. That cast! That director! Oz! It’s gotta be good, right? RIGHT?
