I decided to rewatch this in preparation for The Huntsman: Winter's War, which I am going to see tomorrow night, and goddamnit was it a big mistake.
It made me go as far as to reconsider whether I don't want to see London is Fallen or Survivor or some other shit tomorrow, because I don't think I can take another two-hour-plus borefest with stale acting and no fucking heart to it whatsoever.
Out of all the blatant LOTR-style knockoffs, fairy-tale…
For all of the action and CGI that this film has to offer, it was boring. Not sure if this was due to a familiar storyline, stale dialogue, or bad acting, but the movie brought nothing to the table. No suspense, no thrills, no interest.
what's up with these people leaving animals to die
Why? This movie has so many problems like the story makes no scenes. Why would she keep Snow White alive? Huh? Answer me that!
I don't know was it the casting, the scattered storyline or Kristen Stewart being called "fairest of them all" but this is one of those films I will easily forget.
Enjoyed it more on a rewatch.
Visually stunning and creatively written, this adaption of the tale of "Snow White" proves its worth as an adaptation with enough clever twists on the classic tale to give reason to its existence.
Performances are solid all around. Chris Hemsworth makes for a great Huntsman and all of the dwarves give excellent performances. Sam Clafin, in a smaller role, does fine work as the Prince. Believe it or not but Kristen Stwewert does acceptable…
I don't recall much of this movie, other than the CGI being puttering and Charlize Theron being utter perfection.
Making the classic Snow White story into a gritty action movie is completely unnecessary but Snow White and the Huntsman does about as good as you could do with the premise. It vacillates between a grounded take on the fairy tale and a strange and goofy version, but it all somewhat works. What didn't, for me at least, was Theron's over-the-top performance. Her constant yelling and brooding didn't make her character any more interesting, and actually worked against any understanding…
bad bad bad so bad bad bad bad
*mushrooms with googly eyes
*the Queen eating a tiny bird heart
*Finn's stupid hair
*the fact that the huntsman's kiss is what wakes Snow White
*Kristen Stewart's constipated, expressionless face and lazy acting
*the fact that I was asked to accept Kristen Stewart as fairer than Charlie Theron
*long scenes of people riding horses
*the anticlimactic ending
*Kristen Stewart (it is worth repeating)
Hmmmm this is a weird one because for the first half of this one I find it really boring to watch. Then the second half comes on and I find it amusing.
The problem with this one is it takes itself so seriously and really didn't know how to make itself interesting. Also starting a film off with 20 mins of rushed uninteresting exposition dose really hurt the film. Also another problem is Kirsten Stewart is not princess material but…
At least Nick Frost was in it.
