The first trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters just dropped and I’m not impressed. I’m all for reinterpretations of classic Grimm Fairy Tales (I love what Zenescope is doing in their comic book line), but seeing Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner dressed in leather, shooting out witches…it just looks a little silly to me. Throw in Renner’s lacklustre narration off the top and I’m just not sold. Take a look and let us know if you have any interest in seeing this flick when it’s released January 13th, 2013.
Is it possible to applaud and cringe at the same time? Can one movie really be so divided? Well, Snow White and the Huntsman proves that you can have a wonderful awful movie. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about seeing a “dark gritty reboot” of a fairy tale, so even though all indications were that this movie was going to be great, I went in with subdued expectations. How good could Kirsten Stewart really be? This retelling of Snow White delivered in all the areas I expected it to, including excelling with some of the best production design I’ve seen in a long time.
