The Wiz Movie is a classic or me. This movie opened my eyes to a slightly different version of the Wizard of Oz. This movie was was made after the broadway play. I felt more connected to this movie because of who the cast was. I like The Wizard of Oz, but The Wiz pulled me in; in a different way. I have both of these movies in my movie collection.
