How the Grumpy Old Man and I view the world differently...

The other night, when the last child had finally gone to bed, the Grumpy Old Man and I were watching TV when the ad for the new Hansel and Gretal movie came on... We had the following conversation.

GOM: Typical! They take a quaint little children's story and turn it into a monstrous action movie!

Me: Quaint? Quaint??? What's quaint about two small children being abandoned by their selfish stepmother and weak father in a deep dark forest to die, twice? What's 'quaint' about them finding a cottage where they believe they might be safe and then one of them being locked in a cage while the other is turned into a house slave? What's quaint about a child having to push a woman into a lit oven to save her brother from being cannibalised by said woman?

GOM: Yeah, but the house was made of cake and lollies...
