Was thinking of seeing this for the 3D Weisz, but the reviews have been pretty disheartening. And no PG-13, even? Think I'll have to pass... 130 minutes is just too much Franco in a leading-man fantasy adventure role. Had it been RDJ, that could've been a different story.
If you decide not to see this based on the reviews of critics, well, then, you sir are ... missing out on the opportunity for the 3D Weisz.

And while the film won't win any awards, it's still very true to the spirit of both the best-known Oz film, as well as the books. And given how visual the film is, missing out on a big-screen (and a 3D one if you're into it) would be a shame.

Or put another way: Franco's acting isn't going to change on a home theater system; Weisz' .... assets will.
