‘The Wizard of Oz’ undergoing 3D conversion, Fall ’13 release date

It’s one of cinema’s most treasured films, and despite it being old enough to qualify for medicare, The Wizard of Oz will soon be seen in three dimensions. Warner Bros. has announced they are hard at work on a restoration and conversion of the 1939 classic from 2D to 3D. An exact release date has not been set, but fall 2013 is when we can expect to see it on store shelves. The Wizard of Oz tells the story of Doro–come on, do we really need to tell anyone the plot of this movie? What’s interesting about this move is the potential road it paves for future 3D conversions of classic films. If Oz 3D sells well, can Gone with the Wind be far behind? Ishtar 3D anyone?

    File this one under “Bad Idea Jeans.” Warner Bros is crapping on the classics in order to pry more money from a public they feel cares as little for great movies (untainted by gimmicks) and are simply repackaging this film (like “Casablanca”) for profit’s sake. Guess what folks… your old DVD version of WB classics still work great and look fantastic (upscaled they look as good as Blu in some cases).

    File this one under “Bad Idea Jean.” Apparently, Warner Bros. cares little for its classic films… just treating them as product to exploit year-after-year. If you buy Oz in 3D expect more crap like this to come your way, simple as that.
