MOVIE REVIEW This
week's reviewed movie is:
Snow White and the Huntsman
SNOW WHITE AND THE
I thought Snow White and
the Huntsman succeeds perfectly when it
comes to glistening cinematography with impressive
costume design and special effects.
It has a ghastly feast for your eyes in most every
frame of the movie.
Quite simply, it never finds the right pacing to
really hold you and entertain.
It jumps too fast and is hard to follow.
I wish they spent more time thinking about what
exactly the film is---rather than who it's for.
The costumes are stunning, the production design
mesmerizing, and the special effects (with all its
bird references) are mind-numbing, and yet it's
another terrible retelling of the Snow White fairy
Once again, it's CGI trying to make up for a bad
screenplay -- although the bare bones of the
original story is here, the direction of the movie
makes it impossible to fathom.
A back story for the wicked queen?
That and Kristen Stewart cannot act!
Snow White as Joan of Arc??
I was disappointed when I
realized while watching Snow White and the Huntsman
that it is an action/battle movie and can only be
worked out in a series of war scenes.
Near the end, Snow White achieves her ideal wish as
a military leader.
In conclusion, she appears in a suit of armor like
Joan of Arc, urging her people to fight.
So, after everything is said and done, we're left
with a film that could have been about anybody.
