How can this religious-hate-movie even have been made?

I am a Wiccan, and I can't believe something like this movie could even come out. I was shocked to read the quote on this website at Rotten Tomatoes where Hansel says, "Some people will say that not all witches are evil. That they're powers could be used for good. I say BURN THEM ALL!" Just insert the name of your religion in place of "witches", and you'll understand what I am saying. There's enough religious hatred in this country, we don't need more of it. If you have any doubts about seeing this movie, just see something else instead, please.

The comment was stated by Hansel early in the film BEFORE he found that there were good witches SPOILER (his mother was one). Obviously this person did NOT see the film before commenting. I liked the film. It was nicely done. Decent acting. Not a bad plot. Good CGI. Nothing special but a good popcorn film.

It's just a really bad film that tries to trade in on its predecessors that have fleshed out other fairy tales for adult audiences. The problem is that the backstory for the witches is missing apart from its many other flaws. Had they stuck with less cartoonish witches and had H&G searching for psychopaths performing human sacrifices while saving innocent midwives from ignorant mobs it could have been good. Unfortunately it didn't do anything creative whatsoever.

Isn't that the point? Gretel and Hansel learn that they were wrong. In fact it turns out that they are themselves white witches. Besides which I am quite familiar with Wicca, and Wiccans are NOT necessarily Witches. They are separate philosophies. Also; Wicca states very clearly that harming others is forbidden. It very much discusses that there is such a thing as evil action, and that it is not in keeping with the Rede. This film does not insult Wiccans, or even Witches.

above poster has a point. Wicca is a recognised religion. its followers also have rights, and surely one of those is not to have to hear cinema quotes 'burn them all' remember that in medieval times, many people were burnt because their neighbours didnt like them, not because they worshipped the black arts. a most abhorrent film. which my money wont be wasted on watching

FOR the love of fuck its a movie about hansel and gretel killing witches with machine guns, shotguns, and other modern weapons that did not exist in that time period. This is like if someone got offended at the movie killer clowns from outer space because it makes clowns look bad.

Jan 27 - 09:55 PM

Peggy Stewart

My daughter is Wiccan and I lean that way. Yes, they kill witches. Yes, Hansel stated that dead old saw, "The only good witch is a dead witch." BUT, if you bothered to see or learn about the movie, you would notice that: 1. THEY turn out to be white witches themselves, and: 2. They LEARN that there are good witches in the world. They'd both have died without their mother and Mina helping them. So would have the children and Edward--and a whole lot of people besides. Cut them some slack, Wiccans. Don't you WANT people to learn the truth about witches who believe in the threefold rule and in "An it harm none, do as you will."?

Frankly, I am astounded that the comments below have been made by adult members of society. Religion is not the root of all evil. And I'm going to my opinion at that, because the real problem is the small minded bigotry that is found on this thread.
How can you consider yourselves as adults worthy of being a role model to my generation when you blatantly deface and attack each other in such a manner.
You want to know why the world is so messed up? Because each generation listens to the one that comes before it. You're hatred, bigotry, and obvious ignorance are giving some of the worst examples for my generation. You should all be ashamed of the way you act.
As a personal view, I'm Christian. But I live peacefully with Catholics, Lutherans, Jehovahs Witness, and some Voodoo followers. Religion is part of life, and is the root of kindness.

Jan 27 - 11:10 AM

Diego Tutweiller

The Artist Formerly Known as Tutweiller

Mae, you make a good point, but that's not the problem at hand here. What pisses people off about this thread is that not only is the guy taking offense at a clearly silly and unassuming movie, but he also wants to censor people's viewing of it. It's the unnecessary imposition of one's religious beliefs on others that causes people to get angry, not the religion itself.

And (speaking for myself now), I don't believe religion is the 'root of all kindness'. It's actually responsible for more deaths throughout history than anything else. Countless genocides, wars, crusades, fatwas, exoduses, holocausts, and yes, witch hunts, have tallied up to millions of absolutely unnecessary deaths across the globe. If people could find a way to live in harmony with other religions, then I'd be perfectly fine with it. But while there are still people out there 'killing the infidels' and trying to convert others to their beliefs because 'the prophet said so', count me out.

Also, *your*.

Obviously, nothing will change your mind on religion, so I'll leave it at this; have you read the Bible? The Koran, maybe? Jewish scriptures? Try it-become more informed, please.
The point I really wanted to make was that you have turned this movie review thread into an arena to hurl insults, ignorance, and predujice at each other.
Grow up and start acting your age, people. All I see on this thread is a misguided topic, offensive language, and hatred. It's a wonder society functions with adults who act like this. If you don't like it, just ignore it.
But seriously, this is a highschooler, telling all you adults- I shouldn't need to make these statements, you all should have ignored this long before now.
So, take a hint, and act your age.

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

Funny you tell him to act his age after you get all offended when he tells you the truth. You believe a senior citizen in the sky created the entire universe in 7 days. You believe a schizophrenic prophet walked on water, raised the dead, died, rose from the dead, and ascended into the sky in front of people who only have any credibility from a religious book. You ignore history books. You ignore science. And yet, you tell Diego to grow up and act his age. Unbelievable.

Jan 28 - 08:56 AM

Mae Lael

I'm not offended. I'm at a loss at what you all are trying to prove. The evidence I have given to support a creationist world view is below under Christopher Walkins comments. I really don't need to get into a religious debate, but unfortunately many of the people here don't have their facts straight. And many more confuse or mesh different religions/religious customs to prove their point.
What I'm saying is that there is proof for all of what transpired in the Bible. Also, the 66 books of the Bible were written by 40 different authors over a course of 1600 years on three different continents, and they all agree perfectly.
Do you refute the fact that Jesus of Nazrath ever lived? Or that he died? Or is the resurrection what you cannot believe?
I cannot offer proof until I know what you find unable to believe.
I don't refute history. I don't refute science-evolution excluded, when even NASA scientists state divine intervention was at work in the creation of the universe.

Jan 28 - 10:38 AM

Chase The Lost

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

There is historical evidence that a Jesus of Nazareth existed, yes. But there is no proof of his suggested "miracles" that occurred. Look, believe it or not, I'm really not a hateful person nor am I an advocate of ridiculing the faiths of others. I apologize for my remarks to you because truthfully, my comments to you are out of character for me. I could discuss religion for hours and hours and you're right: I don't need to be involved in a religious altercation either. What sparked my anger was your judging the maturity of all of us based upon our disagreements when you, yourself, presented your own side to the argument and are guilty of ridicule like the rest of us. Although, you were more passive than most of us and there are a few individuals in this thread who do give atheism a bad name.

Jan 28 - 10:49 AM

Mae L.

Mae Lael

I thank you for the apology. Everyone gets upset when personal beliefs are questioned.
I in turn know many atheist who I can have long, involved conversations on faith with and still part as friends.
What I disagreed with in this thread is people not having all their facts straight and using obscene language to belittle others. In no way am I condemning everyone on this thread, but there are several whose actions show great immaturity.
If I seem a bit immature myself, well, I apologize for that. Religion is a source close to my heart and it angers me to see other malign it on accident or on purpose.
On the topic of religion, creation, and atheisim, we can agree to disagree. Thank you for your contributions and views. I will certainly look into genocides-religious and otherwise.

Jan 28 - 11:06 AM

Chase The Lost

Chase: The Lost Trollfighter

There are some people in this thread who would prefer to spew profanities than discuss in an inteligent manner, no doubt about that. I now understand the reasoning behind your initial post and again, I apologize for my comments. We definitely will agree to disagree about faith and that's ok. I believe in "live and let live" so long as it's within reason. The two major exterminations that come to mind caused by religion are The Spanish Inquisition and even the Holocaust. There are many others but what would be the point of researching them and explaining them? You will believe what you believe and I don't really have the right to support arguments to disprove your faith. With that being said, Mae, stay true to yourself but be cautious and choose carefully what you say and choose properly the times to say it. Cheers.

Okay, okay... everybody hold on a minute here... First things first, I'm a teenager. So stop telling me to act my age. And no, you don't get to discount my opinions just because I'm young. I'm not a hoodie-wearing, Bieber-loving YOLOer with the cognitive capabilities of a kumquat. And second, really? You think there were more people killed by Atheists? I'm afraid it is you who are misled, good sir. True, Atheists may not be the model of moral purity, but the 120 million number you mentioned is A) A bit of an exaggeration, and B) Woefully overshadowed by the total religion-induced deaths throughout the course of human history.

Also, let me just say that I'm impressed with some of the comments on this thread, namely those by Mae and Chase-- it's not often that you get a coherent philosophical debate in the comments on Rotten Tomatoes.

I will say this in the defense of Atheists, however: Who is the better person, the man who does good deeds because he expects to be rewarded in the afterlife; or the man who does good deeds and doesn't need a reason?

Jews DO believe they are chosen by god

Sharia law is a legal excuse to violently oppress women

And Catholic missionaries travelled the world telling anyone not christian that they wouldn't get help unless they accepted Christ.

Oh an Mormons are the biggest retards of them all because they believe a guy who made up a bunch of shit to get laid and hated dancing for some reason and adopted his baloney.

They're all encouraged crutches to oppress and control scared confused people who refuse to come to the realization that this world is all we have and it is fucked up beyond belief because PEOPLE made it that way and even if there was a god the evidence would point to him being a real sick fuck.

So the people can run around like chickens with their heads cut off killing each other and electing moral fascists to feel like they are honouring god with I sit back shake my head, laugh and shop cabin's in the woods near an internet connection so I don't have to personally have dealings with any of them ever again because they all make life completely pointless with their shit.

Furthermore the Jesus story was about NOT judging people and helping the meek and poor because it's right thing to do. So what is the first thing Christianity does? Judge people, tax them, build giant churches and a Vatican made of gold and give the poor and meek an ultimatum.

You did nail the whole 'all sins are equal,' unfortunately you screwed up at the end. Wrongs can be forgiven if you ask. No human is perfect, and God knows that. So he provided a chance for all of us who made mistakes. Repent, and be saved. If you don't know what you're saying is fact, please don't say it. Also, please find something within the Bible that contradicts. I have been reading and studying it for over ten years, and have yet to find something that does contradict.
One personal point, I'm assuming you're an evolutionist. Check out all the evidence againstevolution. It takes more faith to believe than the Bible.

There are dozens of sites on the internet with the passages that forbid those things. If you doubt them I don't care.

And the "Repent" nonsense is an excuse for people to act like assholes and feel they are still good people by confessing them instead of living by on simple rule most people cannot "Love thy neighbour" and extrapolated to "Treat him as you would want to be treated"

Greed being a deadly sin and American being the centre of hypergreed and those who partake in it living lavish lives gives me all the proof I need that god holds no one responsible for that sin.

And if you can just confess away exploitation of people for greed then the morality the religion stands on is as flimsy as particle board.

"Treat thy neighbour as you would want to be treated" is all the morality and ethical guidelines I need to feel I am a good person and do not archaic rituals to feel better about it.

People are lazy and ignorant today and think a priest can absolve them of it. If god agrees I want nothing of his kingdom because it is hypocritical and transparent.

If God, may he exist, can't accept my treatment of others I carefully scrutinize through selfless generosity and sacrifice without the pointless rituals and archaic manuscript droning then Evil has taken over.

If he/she/it cannot progress beyond its hate driven limitations brought forth on modern life he/she/it is more interested in worship and lip service than actions.

And in fact since the main problem with the world today is that people hold words more important than actions it would make total sense to me that an out of touch god can't see the forest through the trees.

Furthermore ALL of the major churches have made their priorities known. It is more important for them to raise money to deny equal rights on archaic morality claims and build bigger and more lavish temples to worship god than it is to use that money or intend to raise it help end the massive suffering occurring in the world. Their current effort in that vein is a drop in the bucket compared to their fund raising efforts against gay marriage and abortion.

I judge those priorities incompatible with mine and incompatible with having faith they are the right path because they cause suffering a long with the ignoring of current suffering.

Life has evolved beyond, and religious organizations hold up progress because accepting progress denies their importance.

Evolution in the worship and tribute to a creator or god concept is poisonous to organized hierarchy driven religions.

Whatever you believe created the earth or how it came about the same point about life on earth remains through EVIDENCE: When we treat each other how we wish to be treated life functions better.

There are so many things wrong with what you just said.
Once again- I'm Christian, not Catholic. Rituals don't apply. The ONLY vaguely ritualistic piece my church participates in is Communion, which is NOT required.
I find it interesting that you basically quoted Luke 6:31 int your last sentance. A major verse, the theme, "treat others as you wish to be treated" is reiterated in the Bible over 65 times.
Looks like you agree with the Bible more than you think.

No I do agree with the bible in fact, I think it's message has been perverted and interpreted as a manifest to discriminate.

Jan 28 - 12:12 AM

Mae Lael

So, you googled the Bible. That makes a lot of sense...
Onto evolution:
NASA's chief scientist, Dr. Robert Jastrow said, "now we know with absolute certainty that supernatural forces were at work in the origin of the universe."
Dr. Colin Patterson, the chief paleontologist of the British Museum of Natural History, stated, "I believe one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deciet in the history of science."
Steven J Gould, the number one most quoted atheist, remarked, "the persisting absence of transitions in the fossil record is the trade secret of paleontology."
For the whole dinosaurs living millions of years before humans walked the Earth, were you aware that in a fossil bed in Glenrose, Texas, human footprints were found on the same layer of strata as dinosaur footprints? Evolution is unable to prove why that is. Also, burial rocks of the Toltec Indians (Southern Mexico) show hand drawn pictures of humans and dinosaurs livin together.
Evolutionist and Paleontologist, Joseph Weiner, states on the topic of man coming from apes, "it is quite obvious that modern man could not have arisen from any ape, let alone a monkey at all similar to those of today. It is ridiculous to describe a man a "naked" ape or any other kind of ape."
Over seventy scientific dating methods prove we live on a young Earth.
1) the shirking sun- 50 years of photographic study by the US Naval Observatory, the Harvard Smithsonian High Altitude Observatory, and the Royal Greenwich Observatory, have shown the the sun shrinks at SIX feet per hour. If you do the math, that means 210 million years ago, the sun and the Earth would be touching. Even a hundred thousand years ago, the sun would be double the size it is today, making Earth uninhabitable.
2) The decreasing magnetic field- Dr. Thomas Barnes (renowned magnetic field physicist) said, "If we went back in time 10,000 years, the Earth would have a magnetic field as strong as a star. That would limit the age of Earth to a maximum of 10,000 years."
Radiocarbon dating: Dr. Willard F Libby (won the Nobel Prize for inventing the radiocarbon dating method) said that radiocarbon daring is only good for 4,000 years. Also, radiocarbon dating is only good to date things that were once living.

Even Darwin, in his book (Origin of Species) admitted that the probability of the human eye evolving is, "absurd in the highest degree."
That makes scientists, both evolutionists and creationists, state their opinions on evolution. I mean, seriously? Even NASA threw the theory out.
Oh, and I didn't use google to find these sources. Years of research did that. Being informed on both sides of an issue is important. Hatred alone cannot win an arguement.

I have hatred for interpreting the bible as a reason to deny equal rights in a modern society more than anything.

Those quotes about some supernatural involvement have merit I'm not an unreasonable person but I am not willing to throw evolution in the trash over it.

I am agnostic on the concept of God and all that it involves.

I used to be a catholic so I did more than 'google the bible'

I simply refuse to let anyone's subjective reasoning determine how I should live my life. I have a foundation for treating people right that is a no brainer and compatible with the teachings of Jesus, which to are perverted and bastardized by organized christianity. Judge not lest ye be judged is completely thrown out the window over the need to hate someone of difference and has been the case for 2000 years, the people of difference changes every so often when the church is dragged kicking and screaming into the next generation.

I will not glorify it I remain confident God can be a situationalist just as much as I can.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely and humanity cannot resist consolidating power over everything it can. I have dedicated my life to resisting that urge and put it to productive use.

I have respect for people that can live in the religious constraints and not have fascist ethical views on modern life like Gay-Marriage being the most evil thing on earth. Based on the divorce rates and use of marriage as a tax benefit it has been turned into a trivial sacrement and withholding it from gays is nothing more than fascist ethical hatred, and I despise all forms of fascism. I believe NO ONE has the right to tell anyone else how to live without exception, and that it is difficult enough to get a long and move positively towards a better future, to have several organized religions fighting over who is god's favourite is the largest exhibit of mental masturbation accomplishing nothing that I can identify besides people who obsess over conspiracy theories. The reality there is, let's say all the conspiracies about governments and new world orders and illuminati cults are true: what then? What's the plan? Keep fighting amongst ourselves and chasing ghosts?

No one has a plan to stop evil and heal the world, people are too busy fighting over who is right and until we give up on that human need to feel right and move beyond it we will continue to be stuck in the mud.

Case in point lets say your view on the origins of life are completely true: so what? Does it help us as a species solve our biggest problems we ignore to debate these metaphysical and philosophical questions? Hell no.

We are both guilty here of feeding that pointless cycle of needing to be right.

Look, I was hoping not to get into an arguement. I dislike your insulting views on religion and your often obscene language.
I would like to respectfully request that you abstain from making religious generalizations, and if you feel the need to critique any one religion, that you clearly state facts.
There are people on this thread of many religions who would agree that Islam is not the same as Christianity, Hinduism is not Catholicism, and the Buddhists don't believe the same as the Mormons.
As a reiligious person, I respect your right to your own opinions, but would like you to stop slandering all religions in your efforts to do so.

*shrug* I could care less what any of this makes me look. I protest and fundraise and support full freedom and will not have peace or rest until all religions that raise money for political candidates that represent the opposite are defeated and quelled to listen to the echoes of their own nonsense.

Not that the 2 party system in the USA solves ANYTHING but 100% (and yes this is a generalization I am comfortable with) of the rabid far right wing/tea party are fascist nut job plutocrats who want to hijack the country and force a series of religious driven laws on everyone they are brainwashed into thinking will solve the world's problems.

We are a society stuck in the mud when people have to deal with the daily issues raised by people like Paul Ryan and Rick Santorum and the like.

Yes, the religions that do not support oppression and raising money for these fascist cowards do not deserve generalization.

The ones that do (and it is very easy to figure it out) deserve all the hate they produce sent back at them, it is only right when you stand for true freedom to hate that which works to undermine it. To repsect and understand it is to trivialize the enemy it represents.

You may not agree with Chris' message or how he puts it across but anyone who attempts to write him off as some kind of ignorant person is clearly being defensive.

All he's saying is religion has been used for greed, hatred, violence, oppression, and death far more than it has been used for anything positive. While you ask him to support this statement with fact, I have yet to see any of you disproving it. It's all over human history. Just because, conveniently, you can claim here that you are one of the few non-assholes in that group of people, does not mean you get to ignore the FACT that a lot of those people are, in fact, assholes. You can't ignore the fact that religion has been and is still pushed on people. You can't ignore the numerous accounts of people quoting various books to push their own hateful agendas.

You find a problem with the way this guy is talking? How do you think he got this way? It's a gradual process. He even said he was Catholic. He was pushed away from it because the negatives outweighed the positives as he saw it. There were plenty of opportunities for God to present him with experiences to change his mind, to place people in his path that would help him understand "his plan" better. But the fact is, the messenger is important, and most of them put across this creepy vibe like they're there to save us from our ignorant existence. It's the ARROGANCE that pushes us away. That they can pull this high and mighty attitude based on man-written bibles which are repeatedly conveniently fucking revised once the ideas present problems with what living really is. How long before the newer newest testament comes out and God finally, miraculously grants a pass to homosexuals? And who is it that will conveniently hear the word of God this time? A closeted conservative or a pissy liberal? Does it matter? At what point does all of this start to sound like bullshit? Has it ever really been plausible? Can we not just admit we have ideas but we don't really know shit? I don't buy evolution, the big bang, a deity, ANY of it. I don't KNOW, and I'm comfortable with that. I'm comfortable with letting God or whatever the fuck it is tell me what's going on in whatever cryptic bizarre way it chooses, but I point blank am not going to hear it from another dumb-assed human who read it somewhere, saw it on media, or was told it by other agenda-pushing assholes. Like Chris says, if it truly is "murderers, rapists, child molesters, etc can get a pass because they worship me but if you simply don't accept these inconsistent ridiculous stories and the words of all these obnoxious assholes who supposedly know what you're up to.. if you even simply say you're not sure, fuck you, you burn!" Then I want no part of it. That would make you a hateful, hypocritical, egomaniacal douchebag. Worship that? Never.

On topic, fuck anyone who would let themselves be offended by a movie this worthless. How dare you give it that much credit..

Burning supposed "witches" in West Africa is not the same because the people burning them are stupid for believing that those people are actual witches to begin with.

Ok, you're right. Prejudice is defined as ignorance. However, you need to understand something. I, as well as many people in this country, are firm believers in the concept of "live and let live." It's only a movie. A stupid looking movie, but it's only a movie. You must understand that your religion is practiced by a smaller amount of individuals than other faiths. Even Christianity has been attacked by film and television. The truth is, if it offends you, turn a blind eye to it. The only thing you're accomplishing is creating more controversy that fuels the mindless cretins in this country to pay money to see this garbage. I say to you, ignore. And ESPECIALLY ignore those jackasses who post "Burn the Wiccans" on Facebook. People act real tough when they are behind a computer monitor.

I hate it when people say Christians think they have the right to enforce morality on people when the New Testament of the Bible clearly says to make disciples but NOT SHOVE IT DOWN THEIR THROATS OR FORCE THEM TO DO ANYTHING.

I also hate it when a non-catholic/orthodox Christain gets blame for the crusades and slaughtering of native americans.

A lot of these notions come from stuff the Catholic church does and tells people to do, but the catholic Church isn't all of the Christians.

Stop shoe-horning those of us that mind our own business (besides occasionally mentioning our religion while not trying to force anything) because there are loud hypocrites out there (Westboro Baptist Church, a good Christian is probably a near or even exact opposite of them)

I agree, this sort of blatant hatred in Hollywood is completely unacceptable. As a vampire, I was shocked and appalled by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I had many friends in the 1800's who were killed during the Civil War, and most of them weren't into human blood. Fortunately, we've got the Twilight movies as positive PR, but I'm worried that, since that series is over, Hollywood will think it's okay to go back to killing us.

What I take issue with, though, is that you're apparently equating a silly movie with a serious call to action against your religion. There are actual genocides occurring in the world today, and large groups of people persecuted in the USA and across the world for the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, or their religion. Pick a battle worth waging. Whining about some bullshit movie that nobody will likely even see isn't worth your time.

Besides, you just know that with a line like the one you quoted, there's going to be a good witch character to open Hansel's eyes to acceptance and all that crap.
