I am the LUCKIEST Grandmother On The Planet Because My 5 Year-old LOVES This Movie!
on July 3, 2015
This review is written by someone who has LOVED "The Wizard of Oz" all of her fairly long life (as have the great majority of people on the planet—both above and below the ground). So, I do not have to write a review of one of the greatest cinematic masterpieces of all time. My review is for this DVD's appearance on my television. I've just finished watching and can honestly say that the colors are more vibrant than I've ever witnessed. Of course. the dozens and dozens of times I've seen this film has been on network television or on my VCR; I now have a lovely HD TV and there is no comparison. The splendor of this "75th Anniversary Edition" is exquisite.
In addition, the sound could not be more perfect. In fact, everything about this DVD is just extraordinary. And, on top of that, my granddaughter not only watched this with me but sat there as we explored one of the many 'extras' to listen to the songs over and over so she could memorize them. Nothing is sweeter than having the apple of your eye singing, "Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead" or "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" as we're riding in a car.
My late mother, who was born in 1926, counted this movie as one of her favorites and could not wait to share it with her 4 children. I loved watching it with my 2 kids and now, another generation feels the same way. There is nothing worse than building up something and having that person say, 'meh' whether it's a restaurant or an attraction or a movie. So, it makes me happy that someone I adore also gives her stamp of approval on this movie that I hold so dear.
