Movie Review: Oz the Great and the Powerful

I have to say, Oz the Great and the Powerful was glorious to watch just for it's visual effects alone. I really liked Sam Raimi's style where the world seemed so vibrant, lush and happy. He managed to create an exquisite place, often colorful, but in parts ravaged and desolate. I thought the cast did relatively well especially James Franco who exuded an infectious and cheeky comic energy. The story lacked a bit of a punch though and a hint of irony and complexity could've added a lot more to the film, but this was a largely entertaining piece of eye candy that's worth seeing, despite its fair share of flaws. 8
