Must Watch - Sam Raimi, Army of Darkness, and Oz The Great and Powerful. Stunning Comparisons!





Must Watch - Sam Raimi, Army of Darkness, and Oz The Great and Powerful. Stunning Comparisons!It's Monday. The media is for the most part recovering from Comic-Con and you're at your desk looking for some stimuli to take you away from the every day doldrums. Prepare to have your mind blown.

A new web series from maddoxaom entitled “I liked it better when…” does a shocking scene-by-scene comparison of both Sam Raimi’s 2013 Oz the Great and Powerful and his 1992 classic Army of Darkness. So what say you? Coincidence? Did Raimi essentially remake his own movie by just swapping out Evil Dead characters with characters from Oz. The video below is pretty damned compelling, that's for sure. Check it out and sound off in our comments section.

This should be pretty lively! Just, wow.

I believe a few other websites picked up on the similarities between the two movies, if I recall correctly.
