The Wizard of Oz is about a girl who gets a concussion when a window hits her on the head and trips out and has a crazy dream.A dream that lasts about an hour and a half long and seems to contain about a dozen songs.I think i said before that i disliked musicals but i’ll make an exception for this one and say that i fucking hate musicals.Songs aside for a second,the plot is pretty original and has spawned 2 or 3 spin offs (The Wiz for one).Visually it looks really good, the colours,large set pieces and well painted and enhanced back drops.There’s also a massive cast:the munchkins,flying apes,guards and a few other bucks.This is one for the kids,turn it on,give them a bowl of corn flakes and then fuck off for 1 hour 41 minutes.
