OverviewAfter getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell-bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches...their past.
My thoughtsI guess I should be thankful that there were so many bad reviews for this film, so therefore I came to it with very low expectations. And I thought it was a lot of fun. Sure, it's no masterpiece, but it was entertaining enough for me. I really liked Gemma Arterton. I have only seen her in a few movies before, but she didn't make a great impression on me then. She did now. Jeremy Renner and Famke Janssen were OK.

I don't quite see why this film has gotten so much hate. Perhaps it was too violent for some. But hey, it's from the director of Dead Snow, so what did you expect? The rating should tell you it's not your average children's fairy tale.

So, it probably won't make my all time top 100, but it was decent enough entertainment. And just long enough for my taste.

    My Thoughts:

    I enjoyed this classic film quite a bit. Though I will say there is no scares here... none what so ever. It seems to me the "horror" in this horror film took a back seat to a romance film. Don't get me wrong, there is a bit of atmosphere to this film and I found it vry entertaining. But at the same time it isn't what I went into the film expecting.

    Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd


    I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha
    This magical 1960s series begins when Darrin and Samantha first bump into each other. They realize that they have real feelings for each other and they decide to get married. What Darrin doesn't know is that Samantha is a witch. On their honeymoon, Endora visits Samantha and tells her that she mad a big mistake marrying a mortal.

    My Thoughts:
    I am all the time hearing the question... which do you prefer... Bewitched or I Dream of Jeanie. For me... that answer has always been Bewitched. And the good times definitely starts with the pilot episode. The pilot consists of the honeymoon and a dinner party they go to once they get back from the honeymoon. And both parts are hilarious. This is another show I watched that I really wanted to continue watching. I am so far behind on collecting this series though. As I only have the first 3 seasons.
