So. Oz the Great and Powerful.
It wasn't great, but it was good. I shook my head at some things, but absolutely loved some others. (NB: I have never read any of the books, so I can't compare this to book canon. I know Garland!Oz and Wicked, but these are three distinct wossnames here. Four if you count the musical.)
Trailers of note first. Iron Man 3: NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE. I won't be able to handle it. After Earth: Refreshing to see two black people carry an action movie, but it's not quite my cup of tea. Lone Ranger:

Dear Disney, would it have killed you to hire a Native American actor instead of Johnny Depp? I mean, seriously. It's not like there was a big-name movie franchise that hired Native American actors or any...
Oh, wait. And Twilight's done filming.
and now, the spoilery thinky thoughts )
In conclusion: Yes, there are problems. But it's a good story and it has some wonderful moments in it.
