My review of Oz The Great and Powerful

19 Mar

As a mother of 4 I enjoy taking my kids to the movies. I however am very selective when it comes to the rating because if it’s PG-13 I want to know why. I stick to the G rated a majority of the times and even though they have seen some PG movies I have regretted some because of the language or behavior. As you have seen in some of my reviews with my kids at the movies I highly recommended those and a lot of the broadway plays.

Hubby and I decided to take in a movie and decided to see Oz The Great and Powerful. I knew from trailers and reviews that this wasn’t your typical Wizard of Oz movie but I am so glad my kids didn’t see it. I was jumping in my seat and with 3D glasses on my heart was racing. My kids would have had nightmares with the faces of certain characters, and the sound effects so loud they probably would have wanted to leave. I enjoyed it but the 3D just made it so real and up close. We laughed enjoyed the amazing cast but I’ll stick to the original for the kids.

I enjoyed china doll, and the bell hop monkey characters. Of course James Franco and Michelle Williams did an incredible job. I would see it again but on DVD in my home. Just because a movie looks like it meant for kids doesn’t mean it always is. Parents should know what their kids can handle and what they should or shouldn’t see. Our kids rely on us to protect them. I’ve seen little kids in R rated movies and even infants and I think that’s just sad but I can only voice my opinion in my blog.

    I know that Im not seeing the movie because the book The Wizard of Oz was written by a satanist. I know I dont want my sisters seeing that or myself either!

    I have been wanting to see it but of course, without my son, I knew it wouldn’t be appropriate for children. BTW…I found you over at MBC. Following you on Twitter @scggirl!
