This is a very underrated film, there is very few people out there that havent seen this film. It stars Fred Savage, Christan Slater, Luke Edwards Jenny Lewis and Beau Bridges it is a remarkable story of courage and strength in a young person, we all remember watching this movie. It is fun and entertaining aswell and i think that Fred Savage does a fantastic job. If you have not seen this movie i would suggest that u do it wilol be well worth it

Think retro, back when Super Mario Bros. 3 was about to debut, and you have The Wizard, one of the few films to portray video gamers in a positive way. It's completely dated, but if you grew up during this time, it brings back good memories

The year was 1989, a year before I was born (yes, I'm 19) and a children's film gets released known as The Wizard even though the movie is a bit older than I am, I still think this can be classified as one of the movies that represents my generation's childhood. I do remember watching it once in its entirety around the age of 8 or 9, needless to say, I didn't remember much about it. I remembered that there was a villain in the movie that used a PowerGlove and...that was pretty much it. I also remember that when I watched it, I didn't really like it or hate it, it was just kind of another movie. Cut to 10 years later in 2009: I noticed that the movie was going to be shown on HBO and I was able to re-watch it with new eyes....after seeing it again, I was more than pleasantly surprised.
