HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS  (C+) I've got 99 problems but this witch movie ain't one…
 Also in theaters: Three Best Picture Oscar contenders: the very touching AMOUR, the near-powerful BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD and my #2 flick of 2012, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK.  You can also find Jason Statham punching or kicking someone in the poorly reviewed heist caper, PARKER.
