    Oz the Great and Powerful

    ★★★

    If you see one Sam Raimi movie about a charming and cowardly cad magically thrust into a strange land to become the unlikely hero foretold in a prophecy who uses skills learned from his far-off homeland to marshal a ragtag army of craftspeople against a disproportionate force of evil foes, including his former love interest who has undergone an evil makeover, make it ARMY OF DARKNESS.
