This is the first film in American history to use technicolor. So with its charisma, fantasy, classic story-telling, and cutting edge technology, The Wizard of Oz is a once-in-lifetime movie that should be continually on repeat.

Pretty good movie for being 80 years old. Some classic songs and classic lines which are still used today. The best line, which I don’t hear often, was when the scarecrow said, “a lot of people don’t have brains and that doesn’t stop them from talking.” (Drum roll, Henny Youngman.)

A truly iconic movie with a fantastic cast and innovative features for the time it was produced (such as the mesmerizing change from the sepia tones of Kansas to the full technicolor glory of Oz)!

A classic that is fun to watch and iconic throughout. Some parts of it have not aged particularly well.

Filled with symbolism! Between watching this and the "Wiz" I believe the Wiz is a closer adaptation to what the author wrote than this film. This film is a message to all about how the world works, the puppet master, and the puppeteers. A must watch if your conscious.

The movie The Wizard of Oz is about a young girl Dorothy who travels from her home in Kansas to the fantasy land of Oz and the dangers and friends she makes. I like how the movie parallels characters in Kansas with characters in Oz. There aren't any really scary scenes by today's standards, but there are witches, flying monkeys, and enemy guards. I'd say it's a great movie to watch with family or friends. (or just by yourself. It's a good movie!) (5 out of 5 stars)

This movie is an absolute classic, dating all the way back to the 30s. After Dorothy's home is hit with a tornado, her and her dog Toto are brought to the land of Oz, where they encounter the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, The Scarecrow, and the Wicked Witch of the West. Each of these characters have a story to tell and a moral to spread, that makes this movie so appealing to everyone. Dorothy finds her way along the yellow brick road to the Wizard of Oz, so that she can return back home in Kansas. This movie is incredible and timeless, which is why I would rate it 5/5 stars. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.

One of the world's best movies ever made. As current today as the year it was made. Has been seen by more people, more times and in more places than any other movie ever made. Many people look at it time and time again. My personal favorite.
