21. 'The Wizard of Oz' IMAX re-release
Release Date: Sept. 20
Director: Victor Fleming
Cast: Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Margaret Hamilton, Jack Haley Jr., Burt Lahr… I mean, it's "The Wizard Of Oz," people.
One reason it's a must-see: I don't think every film demands an IMAX or a 3D upgrade, but "Wizard Of Oz" is more than just empty-calorie spectacle with a new coat of paint slapped onto it. It remains one of the best examples of how Hollywood can indeed pull it together and turn a beloved book into something that lives and breathes well past the end of the two hours we invest in a theater. I'll take any excuse to take my kids to see classic movies on the bigscreen, and in this case, the promise of the new combined with a film they already love should make this totally irresistible.
