This is director Sam Raimi's prequel version of 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz". He had a budget of 200 mil to work with and a lot was spent on special effects.


Event Host is Karen L- You could e-mail me at [masked] with any questions/suggestions regarding this event.

Synopsis:

Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

    I rate the movie as ok. Plot just barely held my attention, but the special effects were pretty cool. I was glad no one tall ended up in front of me. Hue's Kitchen was a great choice, finally got to try the Pho. Thanks for organizing this Karen!

    The CGI images with bright color and special effects were a treat to see. But the storyline and some of the performances were weak. It didn't have the WOW factor that would make me want to see it again anytime soon. The gathering at Hue's Kitchen was the highlight with good food and fun conversations. Thank's again everyone for coming out.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
