When Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man, Drag Me To Hell) was announced to be taking on the directorial reigns of Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful, people had doubts. Thankfully they have nothing to fear as Raimi’s prequel to the 1939 classic is just what we all hoped it would be, a visually spectacular and fantastically entertaining...
