SYNOPSIS: A small-time magician arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man or a great one. REVIEW: Why oh why did Hollywood decide that a prequel to “The Wizard Of Oz” (1939) was necessary? We got more than a few sequels already (1985’s “RETURN TO OZ” being the most egregious of the lot), a remake of sorts (1978’s “THE WIZ”) & a slew of animated features … Continue reading
