It’s been 74 years since Judy Garland’s Dorothy strolled down the yellow brick road with Toto. A few things have changed since then. Trouble is, as they say, “the tools make the carpenter”. I fear we’ve gotten so entranced with the escapism afforded us by captivating animation, we’ve forgotten allegory. IMDb’s synopsis of this movie sheds some light on a moral to the story, but I’m skeptical. After watching Jack the Giant Slayer, I can’t help but suspect this remake will also let its substance be overshadowed with computer graphics.
But that doesn’t mean I’m not kicking my heals together for a Friday night show! I’ll have the review posted here on Saturday 03-09-13!
