"Go deeper into the spectacular land of Oz"


Film Synopsis:

Disney's fantastical adventure Oz The Great And Powerful, from the director of the Spider-Man trilogy, follows Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time magician pulls one flimflam too many, and finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great wizard-and just maybe into a better man as well.


My Take:

Oz the great and powerful tells the story of Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with questionable ethics and an eye for the ladies, who is whisked away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, a magical realm that has been awaiting the foretold arrival of a great wizard to rule the land. Upon his “landing” he thinks he's hit the jackpot, riches and fame that are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard everyone needs but into a better man. 700

As most of you reading this I grew up watching The wizard of Oz and love its whimsical richness, endearing characters and spirited adventure. When I saw the trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful I was intrigued and went to see it in the theater with my family. Borrowing heavily from the works of L. Frank Baum, who authored The Wizard of Oz, this film tells the story of how the wizard came to be in Oz as well as providing a back story on the Wicked Witch of the West, the Wicked Witch of the East and Glinda the good witch. Truth be told it isn’t exactly faithful but thematically speaking it adheres fundamentally. There are playful references to the original film/story and the script has a warm sentimentality and sense of adventure that is reminiscent of Oz lore although the narrative doesn’t wholly satisfy and resonate as deeply.

Having seen it three times now, (theater, 2D &3D Blu-ray) I can say that it’s an entertaining and engaging film experience. As a fan of the Wizard of Oz seeing the development of these characters in relation to it is fun and I thoroughly enjoyed the performances by the cast. The production elements have a life of their own and bolster the entertainment value via superbly crafted visuals and dazzling effects that are simply wonderful to behold. So, does Oz the great and powerful live up to its inspiration? Not exactly, but it is a well crafted, marvelously executed and entertaining film that reflects the spirit of L. Frank Baum’s vision. I find it to be an engaging bit of escapism that I look forward to revisiting.

** It should be noted that this release is available in separate 3D and 2D Blu-ray options. For review purposes I was forwarded both and have included elements from each in my coverage. The 3D Blu-ray is a single disc offering containing the film in 3D and a Digital Copy with no bonus content contained on the disc. The 2D version is a combo pack containing the film, on Blu-ray (with bonus features), DVD and Digital Copy. There is a redemption code through the Disney Movie Rewards program where for a limited time members can purchase the 2D version for $5.99 or conversely the 3D version for $5.99. This will be useful for those that purchase the 3D version and want the 2D or vice versa. I am not certain why a 3D/2D combo pack was omitted.

Oz the great and powerful 3D comes to Blu-ray Disc from Disney featuring 1080p MVC encoded video and lossless DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio sound that has an average bitrate of 5.5 Mbps.

Oz the great and powerful is one of those high definition presentations that looks as good in 3D as it does in 2D. Shot natively in 3D detail is preserved as the video retains its high level of clarity with objects, people and backgrounds within the frame appearing delineated and sharp. I was amazed by the depth and realism of the three dimensional imagery. The spacing of objects/ people in the foreground/background is incredibly lifelike which imparts a natural sense of scale as things of various shapes and sizes occupy the virtual world onscreen. I wasn’t drawn out of the film by odd looking proportions or hokey 3D for 3D’s sake. In fact I would say that it was just the opposite.

The cinematography utilizes near field camera perspectives that enhance proportional correlation. The film’s opening is in black and white with the 2.40:1 frame pillar boxed to 1.33:1. Once Oscar arrives in Oz the image slowly expands out to its native aspect and simultaneously takes on the deeply saturated and lustrous colors of the magical realm. There are a variety of sequences (including those shot in the early b/w segments) that utilize the 3D platform to reach beyond the borders of the screen and the effects are as good as I have seen. Contrast is spot on, blacks are inky with excellent dynamic range and colors are beautifully vibrant and eye catching. I didn’t notice any distracting signs of ghosting/crosstalk or other video related anomalies. I have to say that this 3D presentation fulfills the promise of the format and as a whole is among the finest video presentations I have had the pleasure of experiencing on Blu-ray.

The DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack is reference quality and is sure to please those who like to play their systems loud. I enjoyed the audio presentation in the theater and looked forward to hearing it in the familiar confines of my theater room. I was treated to an impeccably detailed, dynamic, and demonstrative listening experience. Multi-layered sound effects are appropriately placed within the soundfield so that their purpose is definable yet not overstated. The mix makes effective use of the surround channels to elongate the front soundstage as it reproduces the spatial and discrete sounds contained in soundtrack. The front and rear sound fields are integrated with precision which enables a seamless transference during sequences involving sounds that travel through the room. Dialogue is supremely articulated with excellent focus, clarity and descriptive intonation.

Low frequency content is reproduced with authority and coincides with the recordings extended dynamic range resulting in room energizing bass transients that are deep and palpably rich. It’s easy to sometimes overlook the intricacies that go into the design of soundtracks such as this. In this case even seemingly inconspicuous minutia within the recording is detectable. The end result is a terrific audio presentation that compliments the source material.

** It should be noted that for whatever reason Disney has opted to use the Dolby Digital Stereo audio track as the default. This requires entering the setup menu and selecting the lossless DTS-HD MA language track. There is a pop-up that advises of this once the play option is selected however it could be overlooked if not paying attention.

Oz the great and powerful comes to Blu-ray Disc from Disney featuring 1080p AVC encoded video that has an average bitrate of 22 Mbps.

This is a stellar high definition presentation that boasts rich, delineated primary colors, beautifully lush pastels and vibrant hues that are vivid, bold and striking in high definition. The video quality is nothing short of mesmerizing in its depiction of the film’s digitally captured/crafted images. Objects onscreen are exquisitely detailed with a luminous and sparkling clarity that seems infinitely lucid and three dimensional. It never left me wanting for fine degrees of subtle refinement and texture. Contrast is on the money and blacks are deep without compromise to delineation. Shadowy areas exhibit excellent depth of field and visible gradational stages. The various wide angle shots of the film’s visually complex world look absolutely stunning. Flesh tones are not overtly complex in tone but appear diverse in subtle structure and complexional makeup. This is a sophisticated visual design that uses real imagery mixed with CGI. The end result is a flawless and superlative video presentation that truly evokes the spirit and emotion of the film.

Final Thoughts:

Based upon the works of L. Frank Baum, who authored The Wizard of Oz, Oz the great and powerful isn’t as wholly satisfying as its inspiration however it is a well crafted, marvelously executed and entertaining film that reflects the spirit of the authors’ vision. It comes to Blu-ray in both 3D and 2D Blu-ray options with the latter being a combo pack and the former a single disc edition that omits supplemental material. From a technical perspective each presentation offers a surreally involving high definition viewing experience that is pure demonstration material. I found the 3D video to be outstanding and among the best that I have seen since the format’s inception. The supplemental package found on the 2D Blu-ray combo pack provides fans with an entertaining look behind the curtain, including Disney’s Second Screen experience which is compatible with iPad after downloading the app from iTunes. Perfect film or not Oz the great and powerful belongs in the collection of enthusiasts who appreciate high quality Blu-ray releases. Thanks Disney…

Thanks for the review Ralph.

Thanks for the review. I was looking forward to this hoping it would be a great transfer. I only have a 42in TV but the picture looks really great. But the audio side of my system should love this movie smile.gif

This is an absolutely horrible precedent for Disney to set. And sadly they were one of the big 3D supporters early on. Hopefully they will listen to all the backlash they are getting.
post #7 of 193
Ralph, Do you know IF the $5.99 2D disc from Disney Movie Rewards includes the extra's you listed ??
post #8 of 193
Beautiful-looking movie, lame actor, lame script. The film fell flat thanks to the casting of James Franco as the Wizard. Totally one-dimensional character. Script was overly-predictable. They kept spoon-feeding the audience throughout the film. I really wanted to like this going in because I was ready for a unique storyline and engaging characters. What I got was a lame present wrapped in pretty paper. YMMV

The pricing is pure crass greed, but here is some info for 3D fans that want both versions:

The UK version is confirmed region free and has both 3d and 2d versions (apparently its only North America getting screwed with the separate versions):
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-Powerful-Blu-ray-Region-Free/dp/B00BL1BIP8/ref=sr_1_3?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1367640701&sr=1-3&keywords=oz+the+great+and+powerful

Price converts to approx $28.97US, but I don't know how much shipping runs.

Just as one should see the original movie first, one should enjoy this bit of whimsy too..

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900): novel as a monetary allegory.
The Yellow Brick Road represents the gold standard and the Silver Shoes (ruby slippers in the movie) which enable Dorothy to travel more comfortably symbolizes the Populist Party's desire to construct a bimetallic standard of both gold and silver in place of the gold standard. She learns that to return home, she must reach the Emerald City, Oz's political center, to speak to the Wizard, representing the President of the United States. While journeying to the Emerald City, she encounters a scarecrow, who represents a farmer; a woodman made of tin, who represents a worker dehumanized by industrialization; and a cowardly lion, who represents William Jennings Bryan, a prominent leader of the Silverite movement. The villains of the story, the Wicked Witch of the West and the Wicked Witch of the East, represent the wealthy railroad and oil barons of the American West and the financial and banking interests of the eastern U.S. respectively. Both these groups opposed Populist efforts to move the U.S. to a bimetallic monetary standard since this would have devalued the dollar and made investments less valuable. Workers and poor farmers supported the move away from the gold standard as this would have lessened their crushing debt burdens. The Populist party sought to build a coalition of southern and midwestern tenant farmers and northern industrial workers. These groups are represented in the book by the Good Witches of the North and South. "Oz" is the abbreviated form of ounce, a standard measure of gold.

Thanks for the review Ralph Im looking forward in picking this up.

Nice BB, I guess movies tried to stand for something back in the day.

Today it seems to be all about pure escapism and could this be the best sounding movie I have had in my HT for some time?

agree, also thought Kunis was not a good match aside from initial scenes as a pretty one, her witch voice was not good.
some of the side effects like the oz-kunis walks looked bad with light that didnt match...
I only stayed for the sound :P

Thanks so much for pointing that out as I missed it. I have amended the review to reflect that the 2D version does in fact include the same option for purchase of the 3D version for $5.99 through Disney Move Rewards.

THANK YOU, Mr. Potts. For your time an articulate review.. "I am not certain why a 3D/2D combo pack was omitted." is in my opinion; they want THE MONEY....! IT is a shame that they are breaking up the combo packs. At the price point they are demanding is ridiculous expensive. They are going to commit suicide. Kill 3D for the home and PUSH digital download on us. While your ISP is data capping.....an so on an so on...

Good review thank you. IMDB is only giving this movie a 6.6 rating. I don't have a 3D panel and would be purchasing this in 2D, so
I'm wondering if it's worth it?

post #21 of 193
Me, I'm just gonna rent it from 3D Bluray Rental. And I'll rent the 2D from Redbox for the extras. Total less than $10.00. . If I ever see the 3D edition for less than $20, I might pick it up if I find the film worth it. Ordinarily, this would be a day-one purchase but I'm not gonna play Disney's game.
post #22 of 193
Excellent review Ralph. Thank you so much...and keep them coming. I have bought a lot of Blu-Ray Movies becuase of your reviews and loved them all. I tend to love Sc-Fi campy...not to be confused with crappy. A campy one can overcome the limitations of crappy actors because of a compelling story and production. Just like a crappy production and less compelling story can often be saved by heroic acting. I hope this is solid Sci-Fi "Camp"...of which I have many.
post #23 of 193
Thanks for the confirmation Ralph!

So to summarize the buying options using Amazon.com's preorder pricing:
  1. 3D + Digital = 31.45 + 5.99 mail away for 2D = $37.44 for 2 Disc set, no DVD
  2. 2D + Digital + DVD = 27.99 + 5.99 mail away for 3D = $33.98 and you have every possible version and still save $3.46.
  3. 2D + Digital = 22.99 + 5.99 mail away for 3D = $28.98 for 2 Disc set, no DVD = $8.46 cheaper than buying the 3D double pack.

UPDATE EDIT: Very limited time bargain grab! Walmart release date ad has the 2D + Digital + DVD combo pack for $19.96. Scott paper has a $7 in-store only coupon valid 6/11-6/14 (first 3 release days only!). That drops the combo pack price to $12.96 + 5.99 3D mail in = $18.95 to get everything (plus shipping cost the mail away of course). Definitely getting it now!

Scott Coupon Offer: https://www.scottbrand.com/offer/disneyoz

Ralph, not sure if you know or does it state on redemption...is it $5.99 plus shipping and handling?

Does it say how long for shipping?

Rumor is that some ads have leaked that will have the 2D+Digital pack on release day for 15.99 (possibly a coupon offer) but I haven't seen them so I don't know who's ad that might be. If true, that would drop the cost of option 3 to $21.98 for everything except the DVD. I would have to own it at that price.

Thanks SFG! Boy, what a convoluted way to get the discs you want. I haven't figured why 2D and 3D can't be packaged together. I'm fine with omitting DVD. DVD is dead to me when it comes to new releases. I vote for option 3. smile.gif

Edit: Just to clarify, it's the 2D BD disc that contains the special features whether it's BD/DVD or BD/DC package?

Thanks for the review, Ralph! smile.gif

I had been thinking of passing on this one but will be watching it for sure now, based on your scoring alone. I've always enjoyed the Wizard of Oz film and realize this story isn't likely to be as powerful, but I'm eager to see it anyway. Thanks again...
post #28 of 193
Great review, thanks! I was going to pass this up but after reading your review I ordered it online.

Ah Ralph, why did you have to give the 3D a 10? Now I HAVE to buy it. Thanks a lot...! biggrin.gif

The Disney site lists the bonus features for every pack that has a 2D blu ray (6 extras, bloopers, and second screen app for tablet). The DVD pack shows only 2 extras, one of which is the bloopers. The Digital HD version (iTunes or Amazon) lists 6 extras and bloopers (no second screen app). The 3D package has no extras listed at all, which underscores just how crazy their pricing scheme is.
