Snow White and the Huntsman
The Fairytale is Over
After the Evil Queen marries the King, she performs a violent coup in which the King is murdered and his daughter, Snow White, is taken captive. Almost a decade later, a grown Snow White is still in the clutches of the Queen. In order to obtain immortality, The Evil Queen needs the heart of Snow White. After Snow escapes the castle, the Queen sends the Huntsman to find her in the Dark Forest.
My word, she really does have only one facial expression, doesn’t she?
If fairytales really existed, this film would never have been made.
Yet here we are.....
It should have been called: 'Emo chick without talent and the overacting Evil Queen surrounded by discount CGI'
Makes me want to eat a poisoned apple and die.
Boredom is pretty abundant in this flat and uneven Robin Hood / Kingdom of Heaven / Once Upon a Time / The Lord of the Rings / Narnia amalgamation that takes place in a Universe so f#cked up that Kristen Stewart is supposedly more beautiful than Charlize Theron. These are officially the longest two hours of my life.
Why is it nowadays that every big budget film has to be turned into an action flick? Snow White is a perfectly nice fairy tale, and one can incorporate enough twists into it without turning the film adaptation into a constant battle zone.
Unfortunately, an action movie with fairytale characters is what we get in Snow White and the Huntsman. The film has only two redeeming aspects: its lovely cinematography, and Chris Hemsworth, who continues doing what he does best: being convincing at beating the shit out of people while also looking broodingly handsome.
Everything else is boring beyond belief. Charlize Theron looks beautiful, but her performance is regrettably flat, since all she does is either shout in rage or…
Why is she of such value?
Apparently someone thought Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by way of Lord of the Rings was a fantastic idea. It's quite easy to figure out, as with most blockbusters, it's existence is influenced by a past hit. The success of Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland, which featured a lot more swords then most people remembered from the original story, is the reason this version of Snow White exists. It's also the reason that I'm sure there's probably a plethora of more fairytale-turned-action-movies on the way. I would check IMDB, but I'm scared of what I'd find out.
The film's story is basically a whole lot of action sequences loosely…
Review In A Nutshell:
A film that is unapologetically self-indulgent in its narrative, with unbalanced pacing and unnecessary and dragging story elements. Thankfully it manages to dazzle in its imagery, with visual effects that rivals its blockbuster peers; and the performances by its cast were better than expected.
Ich mag den Film irgendwie... die Optik, wie cool die Zwerge getrickst sind...CHARLIZE THERON ist schön böse und KRISTEN STEWART sieht, wie der Huntsman ganz richtig bemerkt, in Rüstung sehr verführerisch aus... 😏
Schneewittchen für die Post-Herr der Ringe-Generation.
It surprised me it wasn't that bad. The narrative is dark and interesting, and one thing I liked about it was the photography, which is pretty good and I couldn't help notice it reminded me a lot of the LoTR. The acting was forgettable, except for Charlize Theron who is absolutely amazing and believable in her role. However, the ending was abrupt and left things unexplained, hanging and without a closure.
Was much better than I expected it to be.
Rewatched this. The effects and design are still amazing, especially the Mirror design and Charlize Theron leave me drooling (aaand who am I kidding, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth are also eye candy).
If it weren't for the boring script this movie would've had a lot of potential.
I rewatched this because I was considering to watch the sequel/prequel in the theatre because the trailer looked amazing (visually at least), and because I stumbled across the (BEAUTIFULLY designed) blu ray steel box for 7 bucks, but as I have now been reminded of the subpar skript writing I think I'll pass.
Shame. The set and costume designers and visual effects artists (you really can't help but say that what they put on the screen visually is art) really were wasted on this movie.
Interesting re-imagining has good special effects and cinematography. Check out bigtunaonfilm.weebly.com for my full review.
...a triumphant, maybe even epic retelling of a popular fairy tale with a powerful performance from Charlize Theron as the film's main villain. It's darker and action-packed but there's beauty and innocence in it as well.
The main thing that gets me is why the fuck DIDN'T Ravenna just kill Snow as a kid?Save us the 127 minutes of torture... How was Princess Snow in such great cardiovascular shape being in her cell for all of her childhood and teen years? Did the queen give her P90X or something to do while sitting in there? or Tony Little's Gazelle maybe? Hemsworth is okay as the Huntsman, Theron was one dimensional as Ravenna and grew tired of her scenes real quick, obviously this was just a paycheck for her, Stewart who I do think is a good actress, really didn't fit..whether it was the shitty script or who knows what but this wasn't a very good performance…
I think this movie started well. I really liked the idea of dark snow white story, but even if this movie really tried to be dark, it failed. There are some good part, casting is done well, Charlize is perfect pick for a evil queen Ravena, she is cold and beautiful at same time, Chris is great Huntsman, a person who hold this movie together, and dwarfs are fun.
But there is allot in this movie that was done so lame. Kristen is just a horrible pick. She ruined the most of movie, she wasn't the hero u could like. And in last 20 minutes of movie, she didn't said even a thing.
I usually like Charlize acting, but she…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I remember watching this film and hoping for the absolute best, even though it wasn't being made from Disney. It looked dark take on the tale and just a bunch of fun. I was hoping for Kristen Stewart to get off that wooden image from the public and show off her acting chops that I knew she had via The Yellow Handkerchief and Welcome to the Rileys.
Unfortunately, I was dead ass wrong.
Now, I don't absolutely hate it. The environments and world building look fantastic and have a Lord of the Rings quality to them. Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth give solid performances and the story is fine enough to follow.
But, I think I realize now that Kristen…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
