As children, the earliest exposure to elements of horror are those found in fairy tales and in classic children’s movies such as The Wizard of Oz. L. Frank Baum’s much beloved book series are the inspiration for Disney’s and Sam Raimi’s revisit to the land of Oz. Oz the Great and Powerful follows the adventures of Oscar Diggs (Franco), Oz for short, a magician for a traveling circus who is whisked away by a tornado while in Kansas. He lands in Oz, meets Theodora (Kunis) and cons the entire kingdom into believing he is the great and powerful wizard of Oz. Doc and Thomas love the film but debate its troubled second act while Thomas has trouble with the wicked witch herself.
Iron Man launched a super-heroic franchise for Marvel Studios in 2008 and Tony Stark & Crew are back for Iron Man 3. This time, they face the villainy of The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a ruthless terrorist out to destroy Stark. Directed by Shane Black, the trailer promises unbelievable and unparalleled action – and an army of Iron Man suits at Stark’s side. Doc and Thomas barely contain their excitement for this upcoming summer blockbuster as they discuss the merits of the trailer and the promise of Kingsley’s Mandarin.
Then, the dastardly duo continue their look into AMC’s hit, hot, zombie TV show The Walking Dead. With Arrow on the Doorpost, Rick finally meets and faces the Governor as Andrea arranges their meeting to negotiate peace. The Governor has other plans. The show continues to build and build toward the inevitable confrontation between Rick and his survivors and those living at Woodbury.
