5Visual/Special Effects: 

 ♡(*´∀`*)人(*´∀`*)♡ Can I just say I’m speechless? LOL. Disney did it again! The 3D made me feel the magic of the movie. Dang, no words can express my amazement!

4.5

Audio/BGM/OST: 

I don’t remember any memorable songs being played; however, as far as I can comment, Disney made the movie with the BGM fully playing in the background (even during the B&W scenarios). And there are also some songs (I don’t really remember… ~(=_=~) but i think was sung by Maria Carrey…) but i think because of how great the movie is I forgot to listen to the songs, because it feels like it’s one whole big picture and the elements just combine themselves. ~(^_^~)

4.5Script:


O(≧∇≦)OAnd here comes the best part of all!! Writers you did a really really really really REALLY EXCELLENT JOB! I’m so envious of you all!! Thank you for your hard work and as Oz did say, this will be my greatest show of all. (err, not too sure but you get my point! LOL).

4.5Plot/Story: 

I’m a book worm and all but I haven’t read The Wizard of Oz (I’m pretty ashamed of myself for not reading this classic,  (;¬_¬)) but as prequels go on, this is suprisingly one of the most understandable story of how what came to be. Can you blame me? This is such an interesting and fun movie to watch!

Characters: 

And, now I just fell in love with the characters just like in the original Oz movie (with Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion). I loved Monkey, he’s loyal and honest to a fault. When he cried, I cried. He’s the most realistic among the characters and the most emotional of them all. Oz (James Franco) himself is quote outstanding, a con man and trickster, but with honor and determination that cannot be matched (I relate to him because at the beginning it seems as though he wants greatness but doesn’t know what path to take on… well, normal people could relate). China Girl would be the funniest and the soul of wisdom for all, especially for Oz. Glinda (Michelle Williams)  is your very model of goodness and forgiveness, she gives hope and happiness even at the expense of her own. The wicked sisters Theodora (Mila Kunis) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz) did a very appealing villainous role, they show the darkness in every person’s heart and how easily people can tempted away from goodness. There are also other characters that makes very good imprint in my memories but if I try to discuss them here, it’ll take me more than a day to finish. So, just so you know, I LOVE THEM ALL!

5Cast: 

They did their roles excellently, no more words can compare. (〃⌒▽⌒)八(〃⌒▽⌒〃)八(⌒▽⌒〃)

5Ending: 

(*≧▽≦)ノシ)) Disney why’d you force me to give you this score? Why’d you made me love the ending so much! This is a prequel with a conclusion and that made me realize, what’s missing with all the other prequels I watched. Thus, this made me give this score! LOL

4.5Overall: 

RECOMMENDED! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆ Never fear! I watched this movie twice (one in 2D and the other in 3D) and it never made my interest wanes at all. Though, I must say you should watch the 3D version for a greater feel.
