DemDave: Didn't they already make this movie with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger?

The Brothers Grimm


Yes. And it was much, much better than this looks to be.  The concept is exactly the kind of movie I'd like to see, but the execution looks terrible.

Meh, I'll probably watch it when it hits DVD.

Sirboss37: I think it looks fun... will wait for DVD though

Canton: Well, as a Gemma Arterton fan I can... Okay, yeah, I can wait for the DVD.

If you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray by now I don't know why you're on the internet!


Dude, I watch movies on my laptop. It plays DVDs. Why should I pay more for a separate Blu-ray player, a television (I don't have one), and then more for Blu-Ray discs? I am a poor college student geek who doesn't watch enough movies to justify Netflix, and I like to have physical copies of my media. Used or cheap DVDs are a good way to go.

Sheesh.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Obviously this movie is preposterous because Hansel and Gretel never weigh any of the witches before they kill them.

Mostly this. I'm long past college age but I only have a TV in the house because my fiancée owns it. Until Blu-Ray players and discs come down to DVD price, I'll say "no thanks".


They've been "DVD price" for years now. No excuses.

ThatDarkFellow: Maynotlast: Yes! Looks awesome. Subby, enjoy watching "Casablanca" for the 11,000 time on that 16mm projector your gam-gam bought you when you were 7.

If by "Subby, enjoy watching "Casablanca" for the 11,000 time on that 16mm projector your gam-gam bought you when you were 7." you mean a movie that isn't another lazy rehash of a fairy tale to meet this months over-saturated bullshiat quota that saps $11 from everyone for a script that the previews presented as written by a bunch of 14 year olds that just saw the Matrix for the first time, then yes, yes I will.


Casablanca was a lazy rehash of a play. ;)

Geeks tend to be the early adopters of cool new technologies but unlike the mostly positive factors of DVD they largely skipped the blu-ray generation. You're probably more of a "big bang theory fan" geek.

Well, as a Gemma Arterton fan I can... Okay, yeah, I can wait for the DVD. I've liked her acting after Prince of Persia and Clash of the Titans (although she played essentially the same role in each) but, at the same time, I question her taste in action/adventure scripts.

/A good actor can make a bad movie watchable.

JohnCarter: So...there were heavy metal rock bands in the late 16th century, good to know


Well, they actually had them in the 14th century too, if you remember A Knight's Tale.

This looks like a workable concept except that Gemma Arteton's delivery is terrrrrribbbbllllle.
Has she actually been good in anything, ever?

/when I say "workable concept" I'm not denying it would be a long shot

If it didn't have such high production values, I'd swear this was an SNL spoof.

I'm still not quite convinced it is a real movie, and not a very well done hoax.

so... basically this is a story where *deep breath*

van helsing meets snow white and they have babies who are hansel and gretel who wind up surviving the candy house incident because van helsing had his friend the tailor teach them giant slaying kung fu and they teamed up with Q from james bond's great great great great grandfather so he could build them gadgets that his apprentice nikolai tesla designs(but doesn't get any credit, cause fark that tesla dude), and they go around hunting witches for profit until they find the last surviving witch who gave her heart to the evil king and now they have to lead the commoners in a revolt against the king only the only way to kill the king is to slay the witch who's now become like a mother figure to them, but she gives her life in a final blaze of heroic glory and floats up to the heavens and becomes a star that watches down on everyone and then arthur throws excalibur into the lake while his roman soldiers get to ride home.

First third will be cool fight / chase scenes with some good laughs - one genuinely funny moment thrown in

Second third will try to get a little scary, have jump jump out of your seat scenes and try to start to be serious

Final third will be tons of shaky camera moves, blood thrown every where, one more jump scene and at least one or two "wait, is the with really dead or not?" scene

/unless they go all Sam Raimi, then all bets are off and it could turn into a fun ride
//unfortunately I think it's more the former than the latter though
