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.
Game Of Thrones for bed-wetters.
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…
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.
While visually stunning, add an unfocused storyline & some unconvincing acting & you lose any potential this adaptation may have had.
I was literally forced to watch this movie. God, why??
I love how Hollywood keeps churning out stuff like this seemingly just to give me a chance to prove just how abject my taste in films really is. Because I unironically like this film.
New year is a bullshit holiday, so having a bullshit tradition to indulge in each new year is in the right spirit. Our bullshit tradition is to watch a bad Kristen Stewart film and have a good laugh about it, a fine and mighty tradition which began right here, with Snow White And The Huntsman, aka a film trying so hard to be gritty that I'm surprised it doesn't feature a fleet of local council grit trunks spraying the road with a half tonne of ground up Cheshire salt rocks.
And just like an actual winter in Cheshire, this film is moneyed, self-important and the sort of thing I have spent years honing myself to find the positives in (seriously,…
In a year of multiple twos (two Lincoln movies, two musicals), we finally have the second Snow White movie, the other being Mirror Mirror. This one takes a darker tone with Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as Ravenna, the queen, and Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman. It's the usual tale, but with much more magic and mystery and a lot less fun and enchantment. It's an incredible dull movie made only worse by terrible acting and really shoddy technical work.
Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress. I've tried to defend her in the past but this movie solidifies public opinion. She always has this look on her face as if she is at all times watching a mouse…
True beauty is on the inside, but the eye wants something too. That’s a lesson that Rupert Sanders wants to teach us. Because whatever you’re going to say about “Snow White and the Huntsman”, is visually stunning. The décor and costumes are beautiful and it has great special effects.
Director Rupert Sanders aims at an older audience than the original fairy tale is meant for. This results in a dark and grim movie, with lots of action and a little bit of horror. In “Snow White and the Huntsman” we see how King Magnus loses his heart to Ravenna. As soon as they are married, Ravenna kills him and takes over his kingdom. Beauty is magic and magic is power,…
Aventura legal. Pena a atriz Kristen Stewart não fazer jus ao papel, parece sempre a mesma atriz de "Crepusculo" mesmo olhar, jeito, sei lá, ainda não convenceu.
My gripes with this film started less than five minutes in. If you're gonna make a huge fuckin' deal about how this character is supposed to have jet black hair and snow white skin, THEN DON'T GIVE HER BROWN HAIR, A TAN AND FRECKLES!
Ahem, back to the movie as a whole... Look, it's just plain not that good. I've seen worse sure, and it was pretty, but really I couldn't get into it, and I'll probably never watch the thing again.
I still love Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers, Cabin in the Woods, Ca$h) so at least it wasn't quite bad enough to ruin him for me. Nah, it wasn't all that bad, my biggest issue with the film…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
