Storyline: Oscar Diggs (James Franco) is a self-described con man/circus magician with questionable ethics who gets whisked away by a tornado to the Land of Oz. There he meets three witches — Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) — who each have different agendas for the prophesized “wizard.” Although Oscar doesn’t possess the great powers they anticipated, he must quickly find out who is good or wicked and use his talent for illusions if he hopes to help the people of Emerald City and become a better person in the process.
: Both the DVD and Blu-ray contain bloopers and the informative “Walt Disney and the Road to Oz.” The Blu-ray contains second-screen capability, “My Journey in Oz” by Franco, a featurette on Danny Elfman’s music, “China Girl and the Suspension of Disbelief,” “Before Your Very Eyes: From Kansas to Oz” and a featurette on Kunis’ startling transformation. A separate Blu-ray 3D version is available for purchase at a discount if you buy the combo pack first.
We Say: Raimi should be commended for pulling as many styles and themes as possible from “The Wizard of Oz” so that his prequel looks to be of the same world as the 1939 film. Franco is perfectly cast as the toothy and shifty Oscar, Kunis is wonderfully wicked as a woman scorned, Weisz is beautifully evil as the conniving self-appointed guardian of the throne and Williams embodies the pureness and goodness of Glinda. The final showdown between Oscar and the wicked witches is pure Raimi lunacy … and it works magic.


Disney and director Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz has been tearing up the box office to the tune of $179.3 million domestically and $351.8 million worldwide at the time of this writing. Much like Disney’s Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp, it will be a big deal when Oz is ready to make its home video debut on Blu-ray and DVD.

While Matt Damon may have stepped out of the shoes of Jason Bourne, that doesn’t mean that the fun and thrills are over. On the contrary, Jeremy Renner (THE AVENGERS, THE HURT LOCKER) brings just as much action to the franchise as Aaron Cross in the adrenaline pumping THE BOURNE LEGACY. And the Blu-ray is to die for! Packed with extras exclusive to the Blu-ray examining the making of the film and what it took to become the new man in the BOURNE franchise, this disc will be a must own for fans of the series and newcomers alike! And we have the details on all of the special features. The disc drops on the street on December 11, 2012

Check out this behind-the-scenes clip of Rachel Weisz doing stunts on set from the bonus feature “Capturing Chaos: The Motorcycle Chase” on the upcoming The Bourne Legacy Blu-ray.


From the very beginning, the film DREAM HOUSE sounded like bad idea.  Just the very idea of another run of the mill haunted house thriller was enough to turn off most audiences, but I’m sure people were hoping that the superb cast would take it to another level.  But not even the star-studded trio of Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts could save this film from box office failure.  But I’m sure Universal is hoping the film will fare better when it hits Blu-ray on January 31st.  Truth be told, I didn’t catch this one in theaters and I’m at least a little curious about it since director Jim Sheridan has done some quality films.

Special features on the disc include four behind-the-scenes featurettes: Burning Down The House, The Dream Cast, Building The Dream House and A Look Inside.  The release will come in a Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Ultra-violet set.
