    Not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal. And therein lies The Wizard of Oz's true magic.

    This wonderful romp of a movie looks magical on the big screen: colors are a picnic for the eyes, details loom so clearly you can practically touch them and there's a sense of the larger-than-life with a film that's already larger than life.

    This is one vintage film that fully lives up to its classic status and should play with outstanding success to contemporary audiences of all ages.

    The Wizard of Oz remains the weirdest, scariest, kookiest, most haunting and indelible kid-flick-that's-really-for-adults ever made in Hollywood.

The plot is deals with good trying to defeat evil, as well as a group of friends trying to find their meaning in life. i love the voices that are used in the movie. Every character is extremely different yet they coincide with each other. Dorothy is very calm and quiet, The Tin-Man is very outspoken and loves to be the center of attention, The Scarecrow is clumsy and funny and The Cowardly Lion is very boisterous and loud but on the inside he is really timid and scared. I love that the movie includes many genres of movies to capture the audience. These include comedy, action, drama, suspense and even to some extent, horror. The movie is a great depiction of a group of people traveling together, going through struggles and trials. By the movie containing so many different characters I can relate that to normal life. We all need people to help us get through tough times, no matter our differences. Other characters also play a key role in this movie. The Wicked Witch of The West plays an evil witch who is trying to capture Dorothy to obtain her ruby slippers for more power. This is a great twist to the movie which makes it suspenseful and scary. The Wizard of Oz is portrayed as a supernatural being who people are scared of. In the end he is discovered as only a human being and actually helps Dorothy get back to Kansas. I give this movie an overall rating of ten because of the story, the characters, the different twists in the movie and the overall meaning and ending of the movie. Expand
