    From actors to design this was top notch. The whole storyline was based off the book fully which you dont really see nowadays but still an ecxcellent film

    This film is one of my favourite family films as there are lots of funny parts.
    I think this film would be appropriate for all ages over 7 but the bit where
    the munchkins sang was my favourite as it gave us lots of laughter on top of the brilliant popcorn.
    Thanks xxx

    My favourite character was the little black dog. It must have been disappointing for them becos it turn out to be an old man that sent them on a long journey to get the witch of the west. THAK YOU Jo and Julie.

    I liked this film, It starts off in black and white with a girl called Dorothy and her dog called Toto, her house gets took up into a tornado and she end up in a place called Oz. It's then about her journey along a yellow brick road where she meets some new unusual friends. I would say this film would be more suitable for the older viewer as some bits could be a bit scary for younger children, especially the wicked witch.

    I saw the scarecrow and he was funny. The Tin Man wanted a heart. Dorothy found Ruby slipper.

    I enjoyed this film because it was very imaginative and out of this world,i also liked this film because it was filmed in 1939, but most children nowdays would not like these sort of old films but i sertainly enjoyed this film although it is quite old i thought it was modern!!!
