This is Stoner Cricket Review, where we review movies for Stoners, Ents, and the like. In today's installment I review “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.”
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is just what the title says.
Hansel and Gretel are abandoned by their parents. They then find a
house made of candy and are enslaved by a witch. They soon burn the
witch, and that starts their career of tracking and killing, or mostly
burning, witches. They are soon hired by the mayor of a town where
children have gone missing and witches are the main suspect.
a blog where we review movies on the big screen to let you know if it’s
worth the use of your cookie, brownie, or tokes off your pipe, etc. We
use the Reddit Ent Scale to represent how stoned we were during the
viewing. On a scale from [1 to 10] during the viewing of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, I
would say I was about a .
had said before my preferred method is to eat a brownie, cookie or some
other kind of edible. I eat before the show, before even getting there,
and by the time the show is starting it should be taking effect.
up with a rating system of up to 7 thumps up to let you know how much the movie is
worth seeing baked. Is it worth the use of your trees? We don’t want
your trees going to waste! The 7 thumbs up are determined by 3
categories: Effects, Plot, and Sound.
thumb up for Sound. The
special Effects for the movie were highly (lol!) entertaining. Much of
the movie takes place outside. I really liked how it appeared to be
filmed in a real, eastern European-looking forest. I appreciate
to detail, especially when THC is attending to my details. The makeup
and costumes were visually stimulating. The witches were
made to look as ugly as witches should be. This movie also had plenty of
blood and gore, not to mention witches on fire and exploding. I give 3
thumbs up for Special Effects. On to Plot, the movie did have a plot,
including a beginning, middle
and ... um... oh, yeah, an ending! The plot was not to difficult to follow.
However, I felt the premise was kind of ridiculous. I was left with
questions, like where did Hansel and Gretel get their training and their
weapons? When I think of the time period they are from (I don't
one given), I don't think of anything more powerful than muskets.
Another unusual feature of the plot was that Hansel had an
affliction that he believed was given to him by the witch feeding him
candy. In a way, it was similar to being diabetic, since he would
himself with a needle. But just how did he discover his affliction?
Where did he learn to treat himself? If he was injecting himself with
insulin, then where did he get it? Insulin wouldn't be discovered until a
century after when the story is set. I didn't realize this movie had an
R rating until there was a nude scene. I can see how the violence also earned the movie its R rating. However, I would say that the violence is really only a touch over PG-13. I
would like to give it a least a half a thumb up, but I'm really not
high enough to think about how weird that would be. So, Plot, no thumbs for you!
grand total of 4 out of 7 thumps up for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
at a , Stoner Cricket is on the fence about this movie. You Ents
might want to think about saving your Trees, but who knows? The Effects were cool, and the Trees
might have been what made Hansel and Gretel as entertaining as it was!
