Over the past few years companies like Universal and Warner Bros have tried and failed in their attempts at “re-imagining” the classic children s tale. Now, in my eyes you either get Quentin Tarantino in to rip the face off it or you go home. You don’t mess with Disney! They ran that shit! Let’s have a look over them shall we?

“Red Riding Hood” starring Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) was ridiculous. It jumped on the “Twilight” bandwagon going after teenage girls and smiley winky faces and panned as a movie! “Snow White and the Huntsman” starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight!) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) did a little bit better, learning from Red’s mistakes. It got a better cast. Made it more watchable. Still tried to make it too much like an epic fantasy movie though. That and Kristen Stewart is as wooden as a plank when it comes to “acting”.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters delivers as a movie. Not as a children s tale. Christ, its a children s tale that’s not meant for children! Tom Wirkola (Dead Snow) writes and directs with Jeremy Renner (Avengers Assemble) and Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) as siblings Hansel & Gretel. The tale tells the back story of them being left in the woods by their parents and they come across a house made of Reese’s or something. Queue scary as hell witch that sounds like the aliens from “Signs” and a hot oven. They kill the witch and grow up leading a life as notorious Witch Hunters that kick ass and then set fire to it. They go to a town that’s got a lot of missing kids and get hired to find where they are and bring them back. The local sheriff gets his knickers in a twist though and hires his own witch hunters who get killed way too easily by Famke Janssen (X-Men)’s Grand Witch who’s got her own plans for the children as the “Blood Moon” approaches.

With great scripting and writers involved this movie is the best adaptation of a children’s tale I’ve seen in a long time. Its adult. It’s got big ass guns, boobs, ass, swearing, fight scenes, comedy, chocolate and Gemma Arterton’s cleavage. No wonder Will Ferrell wanted to be involved as a producer!
In cinemas now.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  4. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably
    did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.

  5. I blog often and I seriously appreciate your information. This great article has truly peaked my interest.

    I will bookmark your site and keep checking for new information about once per week.

    I opted in for your RSS feed as well.
