Writer and popular web humorist Maddox (alias George Ouzounian) has a bone to pick with Sam Raimi: while watching the director's latest film Oz the Great and Powerful, he was suddenly overcome with a feeling of deja vu... somehow, he'd seen this whole thing before. That feeling of familiarity turned to outrage when he reached the startling conclusion that Oz is a nearly scene-by-scene remake of Raimi's 1992 horror/comedy epic Army of Darkness.

In a rant on his website The Best Page in the Universe, and the first installment of his video series I Liked It Better When... Maddox explains how Oz is essentially the same film as Army, except instead of “chainsaws, deadites and cocky bravado,” Raimi has substituted “magic, witches and bullshit.”

Maddox points out the major similarities between the two films in the clip below... and pulls no punches in doing so.
