    If Gemma Arterton has a substantial part, you can bet the movie is worth the price of admission.

    Hansel & Gretel was a great movie. Best onscreen siblings ever. Who knew they were that bad***. lol. Loved it. Critics tore the movie apart but if you go on tumblr everyone who saw it on there enjoyed it. They also ship those two like nothing else. & I have to admit …. I am one of those lol

    @Verity I saw it too on Saturday and loved every bit of it. Saw it in 3D and that was probably the best 3D movie I have ever seen. I admit I jumped back a few times because it really felt like things were coming at me. Not to mention I ship Hansel and Gretel like nothing else. Is that wrong? lol

    I hope that there is part 2 of the movie, ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters because as what I have seen, it’s really nice and I want to see them both again in a fairy tale movie doing action.
