Movies: No Dark Cinderella and Maybe Witch Hunters is Awesome?

The Cate Blanchett/ Mark Romanek Cinderella is a Bust
Gah! Just when we thought we might have a top-notch dark fairy tale coming down the studio pipe, Disney has decided that Mark Romanek's Cinderella is too dark for Disney. Click the link to hear Io9 rant and rave and echo my anger at this development. Fingers-crossed that some other studio has the gumption to snatch that project up. Disney doesn't need another regular Cinderella, or another modern twee Cinderella. Disney should have had the balls to delve. </rant>

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Might Not Suck?
In other news, it turns out that Witch Hunters may not be so bad afterall? The new redband trailer has a tongue in cheek flavor to it:



My fellow blogger Drown My Books will probably disagree with me, but Jeremy Renner still has yet to earn a "I will see anything he is in" card from me. Gemma Arterton, on the other hand, from her performance in St. Trinians, I can definitely get behind. Something to Read for the Train (Cate, who is in fact a girl) weighs in with some really thoughtful remarks about the nature of fairy tales to reflect the values of the times, and how, while many had moral lessons, they were meant as entertainment. She also treats us to my favorite version of Little Red Riding Hood to illustrate her point.

I have a feeling it's gonna be an awesomely terrible action romp, with the cool fighting moves and awesome slow mo and dead-pan badass one-liners (I admit it! The "we'd do this shit for free" line in the trailer hooked me.) And I'm kind of ok with that. (Though, my fairy tale racism argument still stands!)

  1. Megan, I couldn't find an email to contact you by, so I thought I'd just post a comment here. Given your particular interest in fairy tales I thought you might enjoy reading some of my fiction, which is a collage of classic fairy tale, revisionist mythology, and contemporary literature. If you're interested here's the link to the prologue and first chapter, though you might also like some of the more recent posts: The Black Dionysia.
    Regards, Edward

  3. This is a review of Bruce Lee's Movies. This review gives you a good timeline and understanding of the history behind the making of his solarmovies and martial arts career. Bruce Lee is the greatest martial artist of all time. It is interesting to learn more about his journey and unique practice and perspective of the martial arts.

  6. I watch videos on YouTube, MetaCafe, Dailymotion and other sites. Free content is cool, but independent filmmakers need to earn money from their work like the rest of the world. Free doesn't pay the bills. Then I started to look into sites that offered movies on demand for a modest fee. I saw that this might be the best platform to get my movies seen by viewers and hopefully earn a living. free Netflix accounts

  8. Movies are wonderful pastime. Movies are enjoyed by people around the world. There are thousands of movies made each year, and millions of movie fans. It's easy to find a movie that you haven't seen already, but it's hard to find a good movie that you'd want to watch. Fortunately, there are several ways to find movies that you might enjoy watching. koktale

  17. I’d also like to state that most of those that find themselves without the need of health insurance are normally students, self-employed and those that are jobless. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not sense they are in need of health insurance since they are young along with healthy. Their income is normally spent on real estate, food, and also entertainment. Some people that do represent the working class either whole or not professional are not given insurance by means of their jobs so they go without because of the rising valuation on health insurance in america. Thanks for the tips you discuss through your blog. amazoin

  18. Windows Movie maker is used for making movies, snaps and along with that it is also used for creating the official presentations. It is very easy to use and side by side it is very interesting also for the person who know how to use it in a proper way. It is one of the pre installed software in the Windows XP operating system. ดูอนิเมะ

  19. It's nice to see good write up like this at least once in a while ??

    I am so glad you took out some time away and spent time with your son, which is so important. We did the same, though were also busy working behind the scenes, doing up the ABC forum and the blog too, and would be starting off with a bang from tomorrow now.

    I wish I had time to watch movies! But as my kids do, and we often wonder how safe they really are – the sites – we don’t allow them to download from a lot of them. I guess the ones you mentioned are all safe, so I would pass it on to them for sure.

    Thanks for sharing it with us. Have a nice weekend ??. Appreciated at Waptrick

  20. The first thing you need to know is that most halfway houses are NOT regulated. Many operate without a state license. Most halfway houses, regardless of whether they are licensed or not, do a great job at helping a person stay sober, and can assist a person in reconnecting with family, and also becoming a contributor to society. https://hellorad.io/marketing-strategies/music-marketing-plan-planning-for-a-successful-music-release/
