i watched it with my son for the hell of it, and yeah it was pretty bad, but one thing i noticed is, it's basicly Army Of Darkness for kids...
-Ash and Oz are selfish, handsome, womanizing, working class folk who are sucked into a vortex and end up in a strange new land.
-Both “fall from the heavens” in a vessel (Ash crashes on in with a car, Oz blows in on a hot air balloon.)
-Both are thought to be the savior by the people of a strange land who are getting face-raped by evil magic.
-Both are sent through the dark woods leading to an eerie cemetery where they must obtain an item (Ash needs the Necronomicon, Oz needs the Wicked Witch’s wand). Instead they end up attracting more evil.
-Both love interests end up transforming into hideous witches.
-Both overcome their shortcomings and train the noble people of the land to fight and defend against the evil magic.
-Both inspire the quaint village folk with a speech and introduce the people to “modern” technology (i.e.: gunpowder). Both beautifully rendered via montage.
-Both feature an epic battle at a castle.
-Good triumphs over evil with help of modern technology.
