What the press would say:

Tim Burton has performed magic again and turned an old classic into a modern one. Burton's impeccable vision bring a darker side to the Wizard of Oz.

This movie proves that almost anything can be "Burtonized". This movie is a lock for the academy and should clean up on the technical awards.
