Momma and I are fans of mashups, such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters, and Little Women and Werewolves.
We also like classics reimagined such as Grimm, Tinman, and Oz the Great and Powerful.
So we are quite intrigued with current and upcoming movies Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Jack the Giant Slayer.
After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel and Gretel 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.
In Jack the Giant Slayer, an ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants.
Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the
giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man,
Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them.
Fighting for a kingdom and its people, and the love of a brave princess,
he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only
existed in legend… and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
These aren't your insipid childhood fairy tales. They're out for blood.
