Wizard Of Oz Gets A Lame W.B. 90th Birthday Gift: 3D Conversion!

If you Google the definition of "unnecessary" (because let's be honest, nobody uses dictionaries anymore), you'll get a picture taken from the original Wizard of Oz, but presented in 3D and you have to wear glasses to see it.

Okay, so that's not true. Honestly though, who makes these decisions? Why would you celebrate a milestone by messing with a classic??

It's true — in 'celebration' of W.B.'s 90th anniversary, we're getting a whole slew of things. This includes a bunch of special edition collections AND Bluray releases of these standalone flicks:

The first talkie The Jazz Singer, all three James Dean films (East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant), Cabaret and Academy Award Best Picture Winners Grand Hotel, Mrs. Miniver and Driving Miss Daisy.

Plus we're getting anniversary editions of The Exorcist, A Christmas Story, Enter the Dragon and The Right Stuff.

The most important announcement, though, is that they're doing a special remaster of the Wizard of Oz… which includes a 3D conversion.

What an awful decision!

We'll take a remastered edition any day — which is a great idea!

Just leave the gimmick out of it! Ha!

    I find it funny how people are so against this, but really how is it any different than Disney re-releasing the Lion King or Finding Nemo in 3D? Warner Bros. won't ruin the Wizard of Oz. They aren't actually hurting the film. They are trying to make our viewing experience better. I don't think it's necessary for people to criticize them when we haven't even seen it yet. I trust Warner Bros. they take great care with every classic film they get. They won't hurt it. If you don't want to see Oz in 3D, don't. But, don't criticize Warner Bros. and Turner Entertainment for trying to enhance the viewer's experience.
