I am forced to repeat the reviewer before me who pointed out that 0 stars is no mistake (because they don't go negative ways.)
I feel embarrassed at having seen this movie, a series of deeply grotesque (but unintelligent) and disturbing (and entirely unhumorous) trash.
I felt ashamed for every actor, crew member, craft services worker and 'writer' (10 year old boys?) who was a part of this as well. If I made money off something this awful I hope I'd burn it, feed the ashes to a dog, and then burn that dog's sh*t.
After watching Mirror Mirror, I have to conclude that it doesn't deserve all of the harsh ratings it received. It only retains a shred of underpinnings from the traditional Snow White fairy tale and there are many many very weird moments but I enjoyed the message of empowerment applied to its extremely charming and intelligent heroine.
I think younger girls, in particular, might find a lot to enjoy from this film. I certainly liked it well enough and, although I doubt it's something I'll find myself wanting to watch again soon, it certainly trumps the truly revolting Snow White and the Huntsman.
Charles Band expounds on the dangerous influence of television on modern culture in the most blatant and delightfully absurd way!
"People of Earth, you must heed my warning. Destroy your satellite receivers, dismantle your communications systems, render your TV sets inoperable for the next 200 Earth years."
This will be my first review because it's actually one of the most enjoyable films I've seen in the last year. The weirdo Putterman family with Swinger parents, crazy veteran grandpa, Cyndi Lauper-esque…
A refreshing and charming children's genre flick if perhaps a bit lopsided - this film begins with one mystery that remains unresolved while another takes it place. While this partial lack of resolution left me feeling a bit unfulfilled, overall I enjoyed Hugo very much.
As an homage to the beginnings of cinema this movie will delight.
