Saw The Master which was very, very strange and disconcerting. Excellent performances by Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern. Joaquin Phoenix's performance was just strange. I'm sure it was brilliant, but so strange that I found it hard to watch.
I also saw The Great and Powerful Oz which I would give a solid B to B+. That said, I agree with the following:

Some nice touches. Franco is a bit detached/cynical, I think, to capture the mood for the classic. But some very nice touches along the way. Good performances, although I have yet to fall in love with Michelle Williams on any level. I felt nothing for her. Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz and Zack Braff were great. Not explained is why (prophecy aside) Oz needed a MAN to rescue it and exactly what the conflict was.
