1.0 out of 5 stars THAT DOG IS NOT TOTO August 27, 2012
Format:DVD
For over half a century film producers have attempted to make a squeal to the "Wizard of Oz", worthy of the original. I can safely say, "This isn't it." Elizabeth Haskens (Jordan Van Vranken) is in an orphanage and believes she is Dorothy Gale. Never mind the time line that even a two year old might notice.

She is visited by The Scarecrow (Jermel Nakia) and Tin Woodman (Orien Richman). At this point the bulk of the movie is a flashback of their journey from Oz to Jersey, to Kansas. The make up and acting were bad. The limited special effects were not as good as those 50 years ago. This film was a pathetic clash of Asylum and Hallmark.

This film is designed for the young and not one adults will want to sit through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dove Family Approved!! July 2, 2012
By mm1989
Format:DVD
"After the Wizard" is a heartfelt, often humorous and always entertaining story about a 12-year-old girl named Elizabeth who lives in an orphanage in Kingman, Kansas. Like millions of girls her age she has read the beloved L. Frank Baum novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" countless times. But unlike other girls, Elizabeth believes she is Dorothy...and maybe she is.

Referring to herself as Dorothy and constantly looking for Toto and a way back to Oz, the headmistress at the orphanage worries about Elizabeth and fears that she is losing touch with reality.

Meanwhile back in Oz things have not gone well for the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman or the Lion. Oz is in trouble and they believe Dorothy is the one person who can help save their home, just as she did before. Only this time they have to find her.

The Tin Woodman and Scarecrow embark on an incredible cross-country adventure as they leave Oz to search for Dorothy in Kansas. Traveling by hot air balloon, train, bus and foot, the endearing duo find themselves lost in a world full of colorful strangers who are familiar with them, including a group of New Jersey schoolchildren they mistake for Munchkins and a wise Southern blind man who guides them on their journey.

An unforgettable story unfolds as the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman search for and are reunited with Dorothy...the kind of story that lives on in the imagination and hearts of people forever.

Dove Worldview:'This is a delightful DVD which features a teen girl named Dorothy who lives in an orphanage and is visited by the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow. The girl's real name is Elizabeth Haskins but when she talks about Oz miraculous things just seem to happen, including Toto showing up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Family Movie. June 25, 2012
Format:DVD
After the Wizard is pretty unusual, even for an Oz movie. The movie follows an orphan, Elizabeth Haskens, who constantly refers to herself as Dorothy and talks about Oz. Everyone at the orphanage is worried about her and they fear that she is losing touch with reality. Suddenly, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman show up while Dorothy is reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the library, and it's a happy reunion...

The rest of the movie is kind of told out of order. We find out how the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman got to Kansas and why. Since the Wizard left Oz, everyone there has stopped caring and are basically greedy... which is similar to what's going on in our world apparently. The Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion all decide upon seeking out Dorothy's help. But, there's just one problem. They have no idea where she is! The Scarecrow and Tin Woodman take a hot air balloon ride to the United States, and travel to Kansas so they can find Dorothy at last.

There are some pacing problems and bits of poorly-written dialogue. The acting was impressive for an independent film; the standouts being Helen Richman as Mrs. Murphy, Loren Lester as Dr. Edwards, and Peter Mark Richman as Charles Samuel Williams.

The movie has a couple of visual effects-heavy sequences that weren't executed all that well, but considering the budget, these can easily be forgiven. My main problem with the movie was the ending. I don't want to get into too much detail or spoil anything, but I don't feel like the ending resolved some of the problems that were presented.

Jordan Van Vranken does an excellent job in her role as Elizabeth, and I'm looking forward to seeing her continue to improve in her career.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Let Down August 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I have always loved the idea of retellings and sequels of the classics. I really wanted to love this film, but it just wasn't possible. The story revolved around a little girl named Elizabeth who lives in an orphanage and believes she's Dorothy Gale. This in itself was not believable as fifty years have gone by and she hasn't aged. Then the Scarecrow and Tin man show up in really corny costumes. I understand this is a low budget film, but really, I could have made better costumes myself. I can't even say that I was impressed with most of the actors. The only one who was even slightly believable was the woman who plays the head of the orphanage. Most of the movie is a flashback of the travels of the tin man and scarecrow. Random people help them in their search for Dorothy, never wondering why these two guys are dressed like characters from the book. Everyone else if the world believes they are the real thing, yet the people at the orphanage think Elizabeth is crazy. I really can't find any redeeming qualities in this film. I just can't recommend it.
