Snow White & The Huntsman Movie Review Party

Girls at any age love Fairy Tales
Snow White & The Huntsman is now available on DVD & Blue Ray Disc. 

The Pre-Party

The makings of a perfect low-key get together that can be thrown together within seconds: Yellow Tail Wine (always at least a couple bottles...we finished 3), sweet & salty snacks from The Popcorn Factory, and the obligatory veggie tray to balance out the Good:Evil calorie ratio.

The Movie

"In this spectacular action-adventure, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) is Snow White, the only woman in the land fairer than the evil queen Ravenna (Oscar winner Charlize Theron).  Ravenna wants nothing more than to destroy her young rival, but she doesn't know that Snow White has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chirs Hemsworth) the queen dispatched to kill her.  Together with a handsome prince (Sam Claflin) enchanted by Snow White's beauty and power, they assemble an armed force to recapture the kingdom.  This breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders is, in the words of Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV, "A film that soars with creativity, stylistic genius and amazing battle scenes."

My Catty Review

Snow White &The Huntsman is visually stunning. The costumes & sets are extraordinary and the actors...well they are beautiful.  Charlize Theron portrays the Evil Queen effortlessly. Kristen Stewart though was a poor choice for Snow White.

Of course anyone watching this movie will be comparing it to all Snow White movies ever released as well as the fairy tale read as children. We know Snow White as meek & gentle, with an endearing personality.  K Stew's Snow has just a pretty face, void of expression, personality, or chutzpah. I caught myself wanting to fast forward K Stew heavy scenes and yearning for an exclusive twist to the story to make this movie worth watching in its entirety. Mind you, I was full of wine while watching. I will sit down this week to watch the film again, sans booze, to see if my perception of it changes for the better.

Judge for Yourself

All in all, the movie is one to see, if just to have more fodder for K Stew, to look at beautiful people, and to have another option for an age old story. Don't let my cattiness be your judge, see for yourself!
