Review rate : A

“..you'll be surprised at just how funny the film is. And even if you think adding 3-D is as useful as the Wicked Witch's shower, it would take a whole lot more to dispel the film's magic..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..the streoscopic "Oz" moderately enhances the enjoyment of a film that was already about as entertaining as they come. It looks fantastic, sounds great, and the 3-D effects are both subtle and respectfully applied..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
3.5 of 4

“..the blend of old-fashioned, classic storytelling with cutting-edge technology is undeniably enthralling..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..quite stunning and a lot less gimmicky than it could have been..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
4 of 4

“..not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..knowing that it was made without a single computer, and entirely by human ingenuity, makes it all the more worthy of marveling at, 75 years and an added dimension later..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
4 of 4

“..glasses or no glasses, 75th anniversary or 74th, "The Wizard of Oz" remains a wondrous experience..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
