**1/2 (out of four) When a young woman stands in front of her church's congregation and shouts, “There is no God!,” she's going through some business. Written and, for the first time, directed by Illinois native Diablo Cody (“Juno”), “Paradise” hinges on a loss of faith that even the sternest believer might have after a near-fatal plane crash. Lamb (Julianne Hough) half-jokingly calls herself a “Barbie that got melted by a lighter” and departs her small, conservative Montana town for the bright lights and bachelorette penis tiaras of Las Vegas.

** (out of four) If “Oz the Great and Powerful” only had a brain. And heart. And courage. Even then it'd still have James Franco, who should never again collaborate with director Sam Raimi. Franco's turn as Peter Parker's pal/nemesis Harry Osborn in Raimi's “Spider-Man” trilogy may be the actor's worst work, and he's just as lost in the disappointing “Wizard of Oz” prequel “Oz the Great and Powerful.” As Oscar, the eventual Wizard of Oz, the actor's performance recalls his Oscar hosting abilities, not the role (“127 Hours”)

*1/2 (out of four) Steve Carell can be hilarious and seems like a very nice guy. However: From “Evan Almighty” to “Dan in Real Life” to “Get Smart” to “Dinner for Schmucks” to “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” he's lousy at picking starring roles. Carell's leading-man wins (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Date Night,” “Crazy Stupid Love”) still can be counted on one tripod after “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” an example of what happens when writers have minimal knowledge of or interest in...

It's not exactly the Yellow Brick Road, but a proverbial hop, skip and a jump up the Kennedy Expressway from the wizard of Oz's birthplace lies the origin of a new kind of Oz creation. More than a century after L. Frank Baum penned "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in his Humboldt Park home, a Chicago-based high-tech start-up called Spooky Cool Labs has created a licensed city-building Facebook game, called "The Wizard of Oz," based on the adventures of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the rest of Baum's weird,...
