Movie: Snow White and the Huntsman
Genre: Fantasy Drama
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron
My Rating: One Thumb Up
I wasn't sure I would even go to see this movie, but being in a mood a few weeks ago and just NEEDING a movie so bad, and there wasn't much else to pick from, we ended up at this one. I was worried mostly about the Kristen Stewart thing... she just creeps me out. I'd heard she wasn't too bad in this movie, and it's true, she wasn't, but I'm just not a fan. She's a crappy actress.
But the movie and story were fun! It's pretty much the familiar Snow White story turned dark... very very dark! With a few twists here and there. And a wicked witch that is so so wicked and the sweet Snow White, who was childhood friends with the prince actually.
And some very endearing dwarfs.
And a most creepy and scary haunted forest.
It was a non-stop action packed, beautifully filmed movie and I was very much entertained, which is the whole point of movies, right?
Chris Hemsworth was awesome, of course, and perfect for the part of the huntsman. The prince was equally interesting (played by Sam Claflin, who I've never heard of) but I felt we didn't get to know him very well. And Charlize Theron as the wicked stepmother was amazing. But Kristen Stewart was blah as usual.
Also sadly, nothing stood out music-wise.
Bottom line: I enjoyed it, really.
Here's the trailer, if you are interested:
And P.S. I'm seeing on IMDB that they've announced the second movie. Well, of course!!
