Title

Snow White and the Huntsman


Mirror Mirror


WINNER?
Draw

I mean 'Snow White and the Huntsman' does have Snow White in its title but it is not very imaginative, in my opinion. On the other hand 'Mirror mirror' is a rather weak reference to one of the most famous line from the tale. To conclude, none of these titles really impress me whatsoever.

Mirror Mirror:



WINNER?
Snow White and the Huntsman

Once again, I'm not a fan of 'The Hunstman' poster but the 'Mirror' poster is pretty bad (the one with only Julia Roberts holding an apple is even worse..) Like for the title which has been released, as a matter of fact, AFTER this list was even created, the poster provided for 'Mirror' has just been released in December. It gives the feeling that the production seems really rushed on this flick and it is not a good omen.

Snow White and the Huntsman



Mirror Mirror



WINNER?
Snow White and the Huntsman

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the gritty action take of 'The Huntsman' version but it seems a little more convincing than the very shabby humor displayed in 'Mirror'. Plus, Charlize Theron is definitely rocking this performance.

What is it about ?!?

Average listal rating (1 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0
Snow White and the Huntsman:
In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.

Mirror Mirror:
A dark twist on the classic fairy tale, in which Snow White and the seven dwarfs look to reclaim their destroyed kingdom.

WINNER?
Draw

None of those stories sound really compelling enough....

Does it look good ?!?

Mirror Mirror:




WINNER?
Snow White and the Huntsman

At first, I was more enthousiast about 'Mirror' since it was directed by Tarsem Singh who had made some visually awesome movies but then, after watching the trailer, I must admit, it doesn't look that good. On the other hand, even though I'm still not convinced by 'The Huntsman' in that area, there were a few scenes in the trailer (like the one above) which did look pretty awesome.

The directors

Average listal rating (33 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Snow White and the Huntsman:
Rupert Sanders

Mirror Mirror:
Tarsem Singh


WINNER?
Mirror Mirror

Rupert Sanders has never directed a movie before. On the other hand, Tarsem Singh has directed the visually impressive 'The Cell' and 'The Fall' and he is one of the most intriguing directors at work nowadays so his movie gets easily one point here.

Snow White and the Huntsman:


Kristin Stewart



Mirror Mirror:


Lily Collins



WINNER?
Mirror Mirror

Honestly, I have nothing against Kristen Stewart but I definitely cannot picture her as the fair Snow White. Furthermore,I know that, in this version, Snow White is supposed to be some kind of tough knight or whatever but it just doesn't work for me. On the other hand, even though Lily Collins doesn't seem to be a great actress, she does look great for the part and her 'Snow White' really seems to belong to this timeless tale and not to some generic medieval flick.

Charlize Theron




Mirror Mirror:


Julia Roberts



WINNER?
Snow White and the Huntsman

I'm sorry but Julia Roberts is way past her prime and she just seems to be way too nice to pull this out. Plus, check those pics above, Theron looks definitely more convincing and just plain bad-ass.

Sam Claflin




Mirror Mirror:


Armie Hammer



WINNER?
Mirror Mirror

For this one, it was almost a draw but I think Armie Hammer looks a little but more like the part but Sam Claflin doesn't seem bad at all.

The Dwarfs

Snow White and the Huntsman:
It seems that the Dwarfs won't have a big part in this version (See plot above). They still should show up according to the cast list.




Mirror Mirror:
According to the plot (see above), they seem to have a major role in this new version. Who cares about the huntsman anyway?!?





WINNER?
Mirror Mirror

The Dwarfs are inherent to the Snow White tale and should (must?) have a central role, in my opinion.

Rest of the cast

Average listal rating (1 ratings) 4 IMDB Rating 0
Snow White and the Huntsman:
Chris Hemsworth, Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Nick Frost, Ray Winstone, Lily Cole, Bob Hoskins


Mirror Mirror:
Sean Bean, Nathan Lane


WINNER?
Snow White and the Huntsman

There is not much going here for 'Mirror Mirror' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman' seems way more interesting on this field, above all thanks to Chris Hemsworth, a fast-rising star.

Release date

Snow White and the Huntsman:

Mirror Mirror:

WINNER?
Mirror Mirror

You may think that the release date shouldn't be of any importance here but you would be definitely wrong. It is actually crucial. The first movie released always get more attention than the second one. The viewers are actually victim of this since the studios rush the production to finish their movie as soon as possible to be the first released and you pretty often end up with some half-baked products.

Who's The Winner?!?

Snow White and the Huntsman:
5 points

Mirror Mirror:
5 points





WINNER?
I was, at the first, a little more enthousiast about 'Mirror' but the since the (very average) trailer came out, I changed my mind. Right now, it is a draw but it may change in the future as I will get more info about those flicks. At least, it is a pretty interesting battle. And you, what do you think ? Which one are you going to watch ? Or do you think they will be both worthless ?
Rate:

In 2012, we will have the (dis)pleasure to get 2 new movies about Snow White. Which one of them is to going to flop ? Will be any of them any good ? Do we actually care about this ?

In Hollywood, it has already happened before that they produced, at the same time, 2 very similar movies ('Christopher Columbus: The Discovery' vs '1492: A Conquest of Paradise', 'Dangerous Liaisons' vs 'Valmont', 'Antz' vs 'A Bug's Life', 'Volcano' vs 'Dante's peak', 'Armageddon' vs 'Deep Impact', 'Capote' vs 'Infamous', ....). Usually, it is not a good business choice.

Let's see which one looks better and which one will win the battle!

Sounds like a good idea but since I have already made 350(!) lists, I don't make much lists anymore.... But thanks for the suggestion!
Posted: 6 years ago at Nov 20 2:52
mmm, good list and analysis, i agree with most of the comments, we┬┤ll wait and see wich one is better
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Nov 29 23:37
Fun list! This is really cool.

For me it's pretty simple:
Julia Roberts as Evil Queen = Blah.
Charlize Theron as Evil Queen = Yes, please!

Winner? Huntsman, in a landslide.
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 18:18
I love both Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron so...duh!
Snow White and the Huntsman is the winner to me!
Cool List!

I went and saw Mirror Mirror tonight and it was okay. Pretty funny, but I am SO looking foreword to Snow White and the Huntsman.

REALLY cool list! It's funny that I just found it the same day that I buy Snow White and the Huntsman on Blu-ray. Haven't seen it yet, but I have heard a lot of good things about it from people on listal and at work.

I saw Snow White and the Huntsman last night. It was awesome! I plan to see Mirror, Mirror.
