Don't get excited. It's another entry into the fantasy/action genre (as per League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Van Helsing), with steampunk inspirations, alt soundtrack, and some little gore quotient. Add supposed to be catchy catchphrases whenere a baddie is dispatched and it...

Revenge is sweeter than candy.
Good Movie! Its not an intellectually stimulating movie. Its made to a hilariously entertaining popcorn flick with over-the-top action and unrealistic weapons that wouldn't have existed given the 'time period' this movie seems to be set in. So you ...

Straying impossibly far away from it's source material, "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunter's" is the type of film that you can have a blast watching, but in the end, you will admit that it is just a bad movie overall. It has a few nods here and there to the original Hansel and Gretel...

It seems I'm in the minority yet again, as I found Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters to be a pretty good film. I thought it had a Sam Raimi/Buffy feel to it, am I alone? I thought Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton were great in the title roles, Famke Janssen was a great baddie and Pe...

You'd think a movie where Grimm characters Hansel and Gretel turn into gun-wielding, wisecracking witch hunting mercenaries would at the very least keep your attention. How could a premise like that manage to be boring? Well writer/director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow) miraculously ...

"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters". The title pretty much says all you need to know right there about this. It's campy, cheesy, way over the top, and entertaining enough for a rental for what it is. How in the world they ever got Jeremy Renner(Hansel) to star in this, is wa...

It's so terrible that I had a fun time watching it. Nothing about it is good, but it certainly is a sight to see. I don't even see myself writing a serious review about this movie where I delve into the characters and plot. It's predictable, it has terrible special effects and th...

A ridiculously outrageous and over the top twist on the classic fairytale that blends crazy action, blood-gushing gore, twisted horror and wicked comedy. A new instant classic that's just too much fun to pass up. A wickedly enjoyable and insanely thrilling action-packed adventure...

A horror action flick based on the old German fairy tale, it had to happen really didn't it. Actually a nice little concept about what happened after the young duo escaped from the gingerbread house of candy and the nasty old witch. They became witch hunters (spoiler alert), sear...
