If you saw any five-minute clip from "The Brothers Grimm," you would see great production values, first-rate special effects and the promise of an interesting story. Enchanted forests, tidbits of fairy tales and unexpected adventures unfold in 19th century Germany. But when you put the all the scenes together, you get two tedious hours of quirky fantasy without purpose or meaning. Played by Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, the Grimm brothers are depicted as traveling con men. They hoodwink local villagers with phony exorcisms of witches and demons that don't really exist.

The Glendale Centre Theatre?s latest children?s show, ?Snow White,? isn?t at all the frightening tale of vanity, jealously and murder first created by the Brothers Grimm. As befitting its target audience ? children who leave home dressed as princesses and superheroes before noon Saturdays ? GCT?s ?Snow White? is a story about the redeeming power of love, even for the cruelest of the cruel. It?s a kinder, gentler, sillier fairy tale, delightfully told by a cast made up of the very young, and the very-young-at-heart with a lot of professional training and experience.

{LDQUO}The Brothers Grimm," the newest movie by director Terry Gilliam, is classified as an Adventure/ Comedy/ Fantasy/ Horror/Thriller film. That's a mouthful, but it's accurate. This movie has a little bit of everything, and a whole lot of nothing. If your reason for wanting to see "The Brothers Grimm" is to learn about the interesting lives of the real Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, who criss-crossed Germany collecting oral folk tales for an impressive compendium that's respected to this day, don't bother.

Terri Roberts, Weekend BURBANK -- It's said that everything old becomes new again, but sometimes staying old is by far the better choice. Take the Falcon Theatre's production of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, "Hansel and Gretel." Were it between the Grimm story and playwright Lori Marshall's outlandishly modernized version of the same, the original would still prove to be the better-told tale. A little updating goes a long way, and, as Marshall's scattershot script proves, a lot of it easily goes way too far. In "Hansel and Gretel," Marshall clutters the story with an excessive (and haphazard)

As a child I always enjoyed reading Grimm's Fairy Tales. Now, as an adult, I get to read Gregg's Fairy Tales, as evidenced by that slick glossy promo that came with the Aug. 24 edition of the News-Press. At least with the Brothers Grimm, you could count on a happy ending, but that is not the case if the Greggs get their way. This letter will address just the tale about traffic. First of all, there is this amazing "spin" that the city of Glendale put in Oakmont View Drive and extended Country Club Drive, that this was all done (at taxpayer expense)
