As I watched Oz the Great and Powerful, I came to a stunning conclusion: Sam Raimi's intentions are always met. What I mean by this is that when he wants you to laugh, you will laugh. When he wants you to scare you, you will feel fear. When he wants to build tension, you will be on the edge of your seat.
The comics call him 'Sensational', 'Spectacular', and even 'Astonishing' at times, but none more fitting than his long standing title of 'Amazing' for his latest trip to the silver screen.
