...Tin Man (2007)

Tin Man is an impressive re-purposing of the characters and mythology in L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz that, despite it's serious tone, can be quite humorous in how it interpolates the familiar plot points into a brand new story. The computer generated imagery is excellent (especially considering its gestation as a television mini-series) as is the acting by, among others, Zooey Deschanel and Kathleen Robertson. Don't expect songs (although the score is magnificent) or the red slippers - just an emotional roller coaster ride double-dipped in fantastical science fiction.
