Oz the Great and Powerful
Film Review March 8, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
Neither a besmirching nor a instant classic, this sometimes clunky prequel in which James Franco plays the Wizard
when he was a mere, young huckster also has Sam Raimi's ravishing visuals.
"...”If you can make them believe, then you’re wizard enough,” says the witch Glinda (Williams) to the magician and con man Oz (Franco), who has been cast reluctantly as the prophesied savior of her people. Can the filmmakers, however, make the audience believe? That is the real question underlying Oz the Great and Powerful, and that question raises another: Is “wizard enough” good enough when you’re tinkering with a beloved movie classic?..."

Screens Story October 26, 2012, by Richard Whittaker
"...For him, Star Trek wasn't about exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new life and new civilizations. It was about, as Wheaton explained it, creator Gene Roddenberry's dream of "being able to work your way out of a problem when you have a whole bunch of people from different backgrounds and different lives and different belief systems all working together to improve life for everyone." That bright future beyond the solar system seems dim now, with the last space shuttle, Endeavor, a museum piece..."
