Snow White and the Huntsman update feed

PvtCaboose91 posted a review 2 years, 2 months ago

A glacial blockbuster...

“"Snow White. She is the reason your powers wane."

2012's second Snow White project (after Tarsem's Mirror Mirror), Snow White and the Huntsman represents an attempt to use the age-old Snow White story as the basis for a medieval Hollywood blockbuster. Electing a dark, grim approach, the movie takes its stylistic cues from the likes of The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia - it's a large-scale revisionist adaptation featuring elaborate battles and lavish visual effects. And due to its gritty portrayal of the Middle Ages, the movie also resembles Ridley Scott's mildly successful attempt at revivifying Robin Hood a couple of years ago. It's an idea ripe with potential, but Snow White and the Huntsman is troubled in its execution, with flawed scripting and pacing, not to” read more

“Dato per consolidato che il cartone animato disneyano sia la versione definitiva per l’infanzia, Hollywood si rivolge all’altro mercato florido, quello degli adolescenti, trasformando la fiaba dei fratelli Grimm – che già di suo non scherza in quanto a cupezza – in un racconto gotico fatto di freddo, fuoco, ferro e incantesimi. Tanto per essere sicuri di centrare il bersaglio, gli autori immergono il film in atmosfere oscure che richiamano quelle degli ultimi Harry Potter e affidano il ruolo principale all’eroina di Twilight: allo spettatore adulto non resta altro che mettersi alla ricerca delle citazioni sparse, seminascoste oppure evidenti (la più clamorosa, una foresta delle fate che viene copiaincollata da ‘La principessa Mononoke’ di Miyazaki con l’unica differenza c” read more

" I've expected a little more after watching the trailer. I can't criticize the kitsch because its a fairy tale but on the whole I wasn't as entertained as I could have been. The trailer conveyed a powerful atmosphere which the movie couldn't keep up with. "

"I actually like Kristen Stewart recently in her non-Twilight roles and this proves why! She CAN act, she IS pretty and I like her quite a bit! Also, Chris Hemsworth is absolutely fit as fuck and lifted up his shirt in this film! Yayy! Also, Charlize Theron is a Goddess! I am in love with her. She is wonderful. This movie is so kick-ass! Watch it! "

"I'm slightly disappointed. Not that I were expecting a masterpiece, but I were at least hoping for an entertaining film with the beautiful Kristen Stewart in the lead. But it does struggle a lot with it's pacing. Naturally the story ain't anything memorable, but there are too far between each entertaining moment. It's very often slightly boring. It doesn't help that it is too grim for it's own good at times. It is obviously the more "serious" film out of the two Snow White-films this year, but "

"In this reinterpretation of the fairy tale classic Charlize Theron plays the villain of The Evil Queen Ravenna and does a good job as an intimidating villain. Chris Hemsworth is kinda bland and forgettable and the same can be said for Kristen Stewart's Snow White. I felt she brought little to the character and she didn't make for a very engaging female protagonist. The whole movie she has everything done for her. She's also got little personality other than she is kind. I'm not a hater of Kriste"

A dark and surprisingly fun version of the tale.

“Ever since the first age of cinema, the 1812 fairy tale Snow White by the Brothers Grimm has been adapted on numerous occasions into feature films and television programmes - most notably the 1937 animated Disney classic Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. Yet, there has not been any major hit of the story since then. However, 2012 became a rather lucky year for the Brothers Grimm as their work on this story was put to the big screen not only once but twice resulting in two separate feature films. Snow White And The Huntsman became the second of the two to be released. Initial expectations for this film were rather mixed but amazingly, it became a surprisingly intense, fun, exciting and at times terrifying ride as it solidly renovates the Brothers Grimm’s dark tale.

"Honestly, the film wasn't that bad. Actually if you ignore Kristen Steward, it was pretty solid. Watched it for Thor and the evil Queen anyway. "

"Watched on: 6/26 What a shitty movie. Half the acting was half-assed, and the other half was completely over the top. It had more holes that Swiss cheese and many of the main plot points made absolutely no sense at all. It looked pretty good, but that's it. No wait, it didn't look that good at all, I mean it had a style, but it was a dark and rainy style, it was dull. Fuck this movie. "

The 'fairer' Snow White film of the year.

“"I shall give this wretched world the queen it deserves."

2012 has featured the release of two live-action adaptations of the Grimms fairytale, with Tarsem Singh's Mirror Mirror and Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman. I rather hated the hell out of Mirror Mirror due to it's ridiculously cheesy approach to the fairytale. Snow White and the Huntsman is the complete opposite to that film - this is a dark, gritty, and even violent re-imagining of the beloved tale. The verdict is in - Snow White and the Huntsman is far more superior film to Mirror Mirror. This the first feature film from commercials director Rupert Sanders, and he's handled this big budget blockbuster with technique and skill. The most notable change to the original story is the character of the Huntsman - he” read more

"Pretty disappointing. I loved the look of some of the effects and Charlize Theron seemed to be having a blast chewing the scenery like she hadn't eaten in months, but the rest of the film was meh. Too long, the story was uninteresting, and the characters were way too one dimensional. "

Sorry for all fans of Kirsten Stewart, but without doubts the most beautiful in this movie was Queen Ravenna. Charlize Theron as the queen was amazing. And even playing bad hag has class and charm. I loved this movie. But why Kirsten Stewart? why, why, why? Her open mouth, the teeth on the top and the same face in almost every scene irritated me. But anyway... I give nine. I like fairy tales.

“This is the a review that I can say is one that I expected. The cast and the story is great. the actors made it the roles work. The actions, locations, and special effects were great.

That is not what this review is about. It was suggested to me not to take my 6 year old daughter to this film. It was to violent, bloody, and gore. We got through the whole movie and I left saying this could have been PG and there was quick action but nothing that would scare her. I think people have to think before they do this but if the child can be at a movie and the content is not bad then it should be ok.

The story actually helped my daughter understand the idea of the violent acts and the action needed.” read more
