In collaboration with Detective Steve and Jimmy teh Freak of Freak N’ Nitro TV, we review 2013’s justly-forgotten wanna-be franchise-starter, Oz the Great and Powerful. Call it Part 4 in our occasional series exploring the rise and fall of one of our favorite directors, Sam Raimi. You were the Chosen One, Sam – you were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them. As Steve said in the video description, “Stay tuned for dry sarcasm and booze.”
A dark night in a city that’s terrible at keeping secrets is much easier to get through with friends. So I’m once again honored to join Jon “Kick-Ass Kid” Cross, and his partner in movie commentary, Dr. Action, to discuss Sin City (the books), Sin City (the film), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and what the nine-year wait between films cost us (RIP Michael Clarke Duncan). As always, you can check out all of Jon’s work at the After Movie Diner’s website, and hear he and Dr. Action talk over your favorite (or not-so-favorite) action films of the 80s and 90s at Dr. Action and the Kick Ass Kid Commentaries.
