good. Flying baboons, bad. That's one difference between the classic, 1939
'Wizard of Oz' and 'Oz the Great and Powerful,' Disney's pricey new extravaganza
with James Franco as the pre-wizard carnival con man. More important: don’t go
on comparing them. The new 'Oz' is loaded with references, some direct and some
tongue-in cheek, but mostly it is a sweeping, kinetic adventure all its own.
