One of my favorite movies when I was younger
I'll admit that THE WIZARD is not the best movie ever made, but when I was younger, I was convinced it was. To me, it was the coolest movie in the world. However, watching it recently, it doesn't hold up as well. It's still a good movie, but now I wouldn't exactly describe it as "the coolest movie in the world." It still remains a fairly decent family movie though. There some memorable lines and decent performances from the child actors. Overall, I'd give it three stars, but six years ago I would have given it four stars.
