Re: Oz the Great and Powerful - Grading & Discussion

BTW, my take on Return to Oz is this:

Everything right with it came from Baum.

Everything wrong with it, whether we're talking gratuitous horror shock scenes that aren't in any of Baum's books, or conflation of The Land of Oz with Ozma of Oz, or Langwidere with Mombi, or utterly unnecessary (and in the case of ruby slippers replacing the Nome King's magic belt, expensive) nods to the 1939 MGM Oz, came from screwing around with Baum.
