An absolute classic, a must watch movie, pure cine-magic, 5 Stars *****
on 2 April 2018
L. Frank Baum's classic tale comes to magisterial Technicolor life! The Wizard of Oz stars the legendary Judy Garland as Dorothy, an innocent farm girl whisked out of her mundane earthbound existence into a land of pure imagination! Dorothy's journey in Oz will take her through emerald forests, yellow brick roads, and creepy castles, all with the help of some unusual but earnest song-happy friends.
Conceived by MGM as an answer to Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, this sweet and colourful fable full of music and adventure will always be a pleasure to children everywhere due to its relatable characters and universal message.
“The Wizard of Oz” will always be a classic in everyones eyes forever, bringing the light of day into the world of movies and putting a smile on everyone and anyone’s face. As Dorothy dreams a dream that is unlike anything on earth, she creates a story that is one of the most brilliant story-telling in the history of films. I absolutely love this movie from start to finish. From it's clever dialogue, to it's hilarious acting, to the true heart of the story, this film surpasses any film of it's kind. Easily one of my favourites. New techniques and editing, the directors of this film (Victor Fleming and King Vidor) make it a wonder to behold! Absolutely stunning filmmaking! Highly recommended to every single individual out there.
