Doomsday Book

The end of the world is two-thirds terrific.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Not based on Connie Willis' seminal sci-fi novel of the same name, Doomsday Book is preoccupied not with time travel, but the world's end. Telling three separate stories, the Korean film comes from acclaimed directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel). As with all anthologies, results vary; ultimately, this one ends up as two-thirds great.

Hansel & Gretel

Gemma Arterton not included, but hey.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters on the way to movie palaces less than three weeks from now, the inmates of The Asylum respond with a mockbuster of their own, simply titled Hansel & Gretel.

Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft

With utterly Grimm results.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
At least at press time, Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft is the latest shameless coattails rider of the big-budget Jeremy Renner vehicle Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which hits theaters next weekend. By contrast, this DVD premiere stars someone named Booboo Stewart, and that alone should tell you everything.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

... and they kicked ass happily ever after.


Action

Rod Lott
A few surprising things about Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters:
• It comes from MTV Films,
• is produced by Will Ferrell,
• and is as fun as its title is dumb.
