Revolting Rhymes – Part 1

Truly magical.

This offbeat mishmash of fairytales peels back the overly-sweet exterior to reveal the darker, and funnier, reality.

From three devious lil’ pigs who fleece everyone in sight, to a Big Bad Wolf who’s got an axe to grind, to new best friends Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood, everyone gets a chance to show their true colors.

Based on a book by Roald Dahl, this beautifully-rendered short nabbed an Oscar nomination, only to be brutally robbed when voters chose to honor a hackneyed ode to Kobe Bryant’s basketball career.

To which I say, bah and humbug.
