Oz: The Great and Powerful

Name: Oz The Great And Powerful
Year: 2013
Rating: PG
Running Time (minutes): 130
Description: Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he’s hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when he meets three witches.
Stars: James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz
Genres: Adventure, Family, Fantasy

James Franco was good as Oscar Digs. Mila Kunis as Theodora was truly terrible. She overacted her part so much it made me cringe. It seemed as though Michelle Williams could have been so much more if the script had allowed her to be interesting. Funny supporting cast too.

The score was interesting and had some excellent (romantic) cues, but I felt that Elfman was focusing too much on the ‘oh my God, what a strange world!’ aspect, as he always does.
