Holy crap, Oz the Great and Powerful was a remake of Army of Darkness

Don't believe me? Watch this video and you'll be completely convinced that Sam Raimi remade his 1992 classic too (spoilers for Oz, by the way — and Army of Darkness too, I guess, if you were still waiting to see it or something). I tell you, Oz would have been a lot better if James Franco had a chainsaw hand.

Clara Oswald's Light Blue Cardigan

Well, he's wrong right from the start. Ash doesn't get sucked up by a tornado, he gets pulled into a time portal.

That aside, some of these comparisons are SO generic. 'The battle ends with explosions in the sky', 'the protagonists are confronted by danger', 'the villagers turn to the hero for help', etc. I think there are undoubtedly deliberate winks to Raimi's previous films, but a lot of this is just generic hero's journey stuff.
