The Wiz ★★½

There are parts of this that are quite good (i.e. Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow breaking into Ease on Down the Road for the first time), but there are also parts that are just terrible (i.e. trashcans with fangs, many of the bland songs early in the film).

I do admit that it grew on me as it got towards the end, but not enough that I could recommend this.
