I write an article at movies.com called Film Face-off, where I take two things, and they battle it out. The things could be actors, movies, characters, just about anything. Here is the first one. Give it some love, comments, tweets, Facebook affection.
Oz the Great and Powerful vs. Gandalf from 'Lord of the Rings'
We've heard things about this Oz (James Franco) character. In fact, we hear he's a wonderful wizard. Word on the street is he's also great and powerful. Sounds like a good combination. So let's go off to see how this wizard of Oz would fare against another character who wields a powerful stick. We're not talking about The Sorcerer's Apprentice, nor are we going with Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore or anyone else from the Harry Potter world. For this Film Face-off, we are pitting Oz vs. Gandalf (Ian McKellen). It's our first ever wizard-off. Sounds magical, doesn't it?
