    A Great Version of "OZ" filled with soul and Rock 'N Roll!

    Back in 1975, "The Wiz" soared onto Broadway and immediately became a smash hit. Despite all the criticism the movie gets, it's still an awesome film. I loved Diana Ross as Dorothy. Listening to her sing "Home" always makes me cry. The music is great to listen to as she journey's through the jazzin' land of Oz. Any OZ fan will love "The Wiz".

    Loved the movie

    My daughter loves watching this movie. She became a Michael Jackson fan at the time of his untimely death. Michael's performance is great. I've been a fan for years.

    My only compliant is that the movie is starting to freeze and will then skip to the next scene.

    Great memories

    This was one of the most entertaining movies of my childhood. I had such good memories of the great music and fun of this movie, I bought it recently, and to my surprise, I loved it more as an adult. As an African-American child, The Wiz took a story we knew all too well and re-created it in a big onscreen production with music influences and a stage presentation that reflected our differences. Michael Jackson was awesome performing ''You Can't Win,'' which reminded me just of how much talent he posesses. (I wish that old Michael was still around, but that's another review.) Nipsey Russell and Lena Horne are also spectacular. I can watch this movie over and over again!
