I can't believe they're rebooting this franchise.

Ugh, they're shooting some of it in color? So tired of that gimmick. It gives me a headache.

They changed Dorothy's silver shoes to ruby slippers!! It's like they're TRYING to ruin my childhood!!

Oh, thanks, Variety, for the big fat spoiler. I guess now I don't have to see the movie to know there's a talking scarecrow in it.

L. Frank Baum is spinning in his grave over how fat Judy Garland is.

I don't care what the haters say, TWOO looks epic. Judy Garland is hot, the action scenes look incredible. This is gonna be a favorite for decades, especially for heterosexual men.

The definitive motion picture adaptation of this novel is Chadwick Pictures' 1925 silent version. I am doubtful that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer will improve upon that, though I suspect the current generation of cinematic morons will think they have.

omg i love this book!!! i hope they dont ruin it!!! i bet it will be good because ray bolger is HOTTT!!

Toto is supposed to be a Yorkshire Terrier, not a Cairn Terrier! Did no one read the book??

Typical Hollywood political correctness, going out of their way to find jobs for a bunch of filthy midgets while regular-size people are unemployed.

I'm amazed MGM is releasing it with the tornado still looking that fake.

Whoever did the creature design on the flying monkeys should be fired. The wings are too small to lift them off the ground! Embarrassing.

Boycott this movie!! It is unfair in its portrayal of witches!! THEY DO NOT DIE FROM WATER, THAT IS STUPID!!

Lions and tigers and bears, oh meh.

I'm not interested in movies about people from Kansas, and this teaser-trailer isn't changing my mind. Fail.

"Gone with the Wind" is gonna blow this lame book and its lame movie out of the water. Rhett Butler is way hotter than the stupid Tin Man anyway! #teamrhett
