This could be great. I expect to see some great CGI characters instead of men dressed in silly outfits

So it's going to be 'The Wiz 2.0' then (and little else?)

With trans and gays too. You're discriminating by not including them in your comment. Bigot.

I hope it's better than "The Great and Powerful Oz"!

That sucked.

The critics mostly agree with you, but I actually didn't mind that one. I found it entertaining at least.

I found "Oz" very disappointing, because it actually could have been good with a few changes - like a different Oz. I find movies that could have been good deeply frustrating, they actually annoy me more than boring ones!

I get it. Oz was the first time I ever saw James Franco, but I learned after it was released that an awful lot of people can't stand him. Because I had never seen him in anything, I didn't have a problem with him in this.

I mean, I can't stand Will Farrell. Everything he was in was ruined for me, so if he was scheduled to be in a movie I wanted to see, I simply wouldn't see it.

reply

Franco really was bad in the role. I mean he's capable of good acting, or used to be but in this movie he was just smug and irritating - even Will Farrell might have been better! I mean they really should have made the movie 20 years ago, when Johnny Depp was still on form, a young and acute Depp would have made the most of the role and carried the film over its weaknesses.

But oh well, the movie's been made with my douchebag homeboy Franco, and Depp hasn't give that kind of performance in decades.

One more classic that doesn't need to be remade. Whatever they come up with will be yesterday's news soon enough, while the original will continue to be a timeless classic.

So in the woke world the Wicked Witch will be the Misunderstood Alchemist.

It will be very very awful. WB will be foolish to sink a lot of money into this. I predict too much CGI, race/gender swapping with the characters, and random action sequences. Just watch the original 1939 version. Or Return to Oz for a well-made film true to the source.

My dad who died recently loved The Wizard of Oz. So you're saying it's no biggie that he won't get to see this?
