REVIEW: OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL…AND WONDERFUL!

All text ©2013 Mike Pascale. Visuals ©2013 their respective owner(s). For the record, I have a personal connection to this movie. Although they don’t know each other, my brother went to high school with director Sam Raimi and two local actors (one of whom he does know).

A Picture’s Worth #117: “Hansel And Gretel, Witch Hunters Is A House Of Visual Candy” All contents ©2013 Mike Pascale. Visual content ©2013 their respective owner(s). From the moment I saw the previews for the new Tommy Wirkola written-and-directed flick HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, I knew I had to check it out. If for no reason than for the visuals, the fights, the bad jokes, and seeing Jeremy Renner act like a Dark Ages…
