What with Oz The Great And Powerful and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone out in cinemas, it seems as if the world has gone a little mad for magicians, wizards and all those skilled in the art of prestidigitation. So, to celebrate in true Best For Film style, we’ve decided to pay tribute to the best of a magical bunch in a bid to find the ultimate magician of them all…
Oz: the Great and Powerful, the prequel to 1939’s The Wizard of Oz that everyone has been clamouring for these past 70-odd years (ahem), is most surprising in that it’s nowhere near the mess it promised to be. Luridly colourful and garish, but filled with likable performances and some excellent 3D. But while it may not be a total mess, but that’s not to say that it isn’t still wildly inconsistent at times.
A little teaser from Oz for you my pretties.
James Franco is making a biopic of Jay Sebring, a celebrity hair stylist in the 60s who was murdered by the Manson Family.
And your little dog too!
Perverts of the world, rejoice!
We’ll be the judges of a film’s greatness and power thank you very much.
