Hollywood has no fear when it comes to remaking classic fairy tales, from "Little Red Riding Hood" to last year's dueling versions of "Snow White." But do these new versions do the classics justice? And how do they stand up to this weekend's "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters."
The Takeaway's Movie Date team, Rafer Guzman and Kristen Meinzer weigh in with their thoughts on the new movie, and about how fairy tales are being depicted on film these days.
In addition to hosting the Movie Date podcast, Rafer is film critic for Newsday and Kristen is culture producer for the Takeaway.
