Audiences were ready for a return trip to the land of Oz, made famous of course by  ’The Wizard of Oz’.  Opening weekend was great, but we’ll have to wait for the second weekend to see if the movie will really be a big hit after word of mouth spreads. We caught up with some local residents after the movie on Friday night. 24- year-old Monica, says “bigger than life, exciting from beginning to end.” 40 year-old Donna says “great visual effects and Michelle Williams lives up to her Oscar status.” 49-year-old Jeff says “Kunis, Williams and Weisz were fabulous. James Franco, not so much.”

As it has been for the past few weeks, the real success story in the top ten continues to be ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ which took its first major drop in quite some time but still crossed the $120 million mark, making it a financial blockbuster, a critical smash and a major award winner.
