Return to Oz

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the real problem is that they were trying to capture some of the feel of the 1939 film while also exploring some of the darker elements of Baum's books. They chose some good moments from The Marvelous Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz for the film while changing some things to what made the earlier film recognizable (the Ruby Slippers, Dorthy's companions) but overall, it gave the film some major moments of mood whiplash and I'm sure most of the parents didn't know that they were taking their kids to see a room of screaming heads.
