I know these "Everything Wrong With..." videos are all the rage, but I find them incredibly obnoxious. They reduce films down to these infinitesimal and esoteric grievances that say way more about the personality defects of the person nit-picking than they do of film's supposed shortcomings. Case in point, this "deconstruction" of 's Oz The Great and Powerful.

For all the charged "movie sins," I count one actual objective mistake. The rest is just smug, misplaced superiority. Have these bozos ever written a script? My favorite bonehead move? They claim Raimi ripped-off the flying object POV from The Evil Dead movies...which were ALSO directed by Sam Raimi. One could make the argument that they were just being cute, but intentional inaccuracy seems even more hypocritical for a group claiming they know "everything wrong" with every movie.

Still, for the sake of fairness, take a look at the video.
