It's wonderful!
10 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dorothy and the Witches of Oz" isn't perfect, but it does what great movies should. It's entertaining. The story is engaging, and you can't help but fall in love with every single character. The effects are dodgy at times, but there's so much going for this movie that that can easily be forgiven. The cast is brilliant and fun. Mia Sara, Eliza Swenson, Christopher Lloyd, and Barry Ratcliffe are a few standouts. The score, composed brilliantly by Eliza Swenson, gives the film an ambitious feel and really sets the mood for the scenes. With an orchestral version of "Over the Rainbow" at the end, the movie takes us back to our childhood. So many of us grew up watching the classic 'Wizard of Oz' movie, and what I love about "Dorothy and the Witches of Oz" is that it doesn't try to be like other movies. It's not cynical, it's not edgy. It's a fantastic film for the whole family; I really think that this film has something for everyone to enjoy. It's not predictable, and you're so involved in what the characters are doing, that you forget you're even watching a movie. In short, it's wonderful!
