So staggering in its effortless magic and in its mind-boggling creation of worlds, characters, places, and discoveries that it almost makes me cry from beginning to end just because of how perfect it is. The Wizard of Oz is quite possibly the pinnacle of cinema, as it lifts our dreams, our fears, our longing, and our connection to a projected image to a height of heavenly nirvana. No matter where you watch it, you can feel the beauty and the truth radiating from the screen. Honestly, there's really no excuse to dislike this movie, mainly because it has everything you could want in a piece of cinema; an engaging story, likable characters, flawless direction, vivid and luscious colors, scrumptious costume design, untouchable pacing, emotional revelations, amazing set design, impeccable atmosphere, trees who throw apples, talking scarecrows and lions and tinmen, creepy castles, poison, and evil flying monkeys.
EVIL FLYING MONKEYS.
Whatever your argument is, It's invalid.
