    Wow, the only ones vaguely recognizable are Toby Jones and Ian McShane.

    Harry loves the flawed, yet beautiful SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    Reviews coming out...and they ain't good. This is the best one I can find and even he seems to be apologizing for it. Complaints...vapid and empty, just a pretty looking nothing. Well, ok...I still want to see it for the dwarves, but it's a bit of a disappointment that the knock on this coulda been seen coming from miles away. Ever since seeing footage @SDCC last year I had hoped they would rise above and actually put a movie in here, seems they left it out. Ok, so I will sneak in and turn my brain off and just look at the shiny. Whatever.

    Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    The one thing missing out on all the marketing is that the film has a lighter side; that comic relief comes in the form of an all-star cast of dwarves that includes a gaggle of beloved actors including Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Nick Frost and Bob Hoskins. Seriously, these guys make the movie and then some and for those wondering, they are most definitely not your typical Disney-style dwarves either; they like to drink, dance, pillage- oh, and they kick some ass too.

    And while there's a lot to like about Snow White and the Huntsman, the film does suffer from a few flaws that are hard to overlook. With a two hour plus running time, Sanders should have spent a little more time in the editing room as parts of the film's first and second acts lag at times. The other issue with the flick is that the final showdown scene between Snow White and Ravenna (as well as the aftermath that follows) feels insanely rushed, especially for a movie with this kind of running time. The fight between our leading ladies ends up coming off a bit flat and a lot of the characters end up getting lost in the shuffle during the film's final moments. Neither truly derails the flick but it would have been nice if the film could have delivered on all fronts, not just a few.

    But overall, Snow White and the Huntsman makes for a great summer popcorn flick that may actually end up surprising some of you out there who may not have been clamoring to see the latest film featuring 'the chick from Twilight.' Sanders does a great job of blending the traditional plot points of this timeless tale and injecting some new material in all the right places. It's not without a few flaws here and there but as a whole, Snow White and the Huntsman is one summer blockbuster that shouldn't put you to sleep.
    Ok, only highlighting the good reviews cause they are harder to find. Not trying to sway opinions.

    I thought Snow White and the Huntsman was above average.

    I appreciated that it drew it's storytelling inspiration from Tolkien and Miyazaki, a bold choice for Snow White and for a main stream summer blockbuster. It has a ton of great elements, but it does a couple things very wrong which keeps it from being a film I actively liked as opposed to a film that a passively don't dislike.

    I really want to dig into an art book though, the production and costume design in this movie was stellar.

    This was a chore. WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYTOOOOOOOOOOOOLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. I have seen directors in love with their work, but this takes the cake. Great visuals just get lost after a while when NOTHING happens. So, casting Kristen Stewart...Snow White is supposed to inspire men to fight, the creatures of the forest to love her, etc. and yet all she seems to be able to do is stare longingly at people with a sentence appearing to start and then just die on her lips. All she inspired me to do was check my watch. No charisma whatsoever. Thor does little better. The characters and their interactions seem to only be sparsely written pieces to move the visuals along. The Dwarves are ok. Not used enough and also so minescule dialogue/explanation wise...just wasted.

    So...Charlize Theron. First off, full disclosure...never really thought she was a great actress. But this is such a blatant RAZZIE sweeping performance. Lines are either whispered, with every syllable dragged out. Or, shouted/growled with full scenery chewing mode in effect. Sometimes that can work(see Legend/Tim Curry) and I commend her for trying to do anything with, once again, a poorly written part...but by the end of the movie I was actually laughing everytime she came on screen. I think she spent a lot of time modeling her performance on Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest(minus the subtlety).

    Yeah, pass.

    Actually did this a disservice by not adding the pic, it's pretty stunning actually and yeah it does bode well.

    MALEFICENT Movie Image

    Principal photography has begun on the Sleeping Beauty re-imagining Maleficent, and Disney has released the first shot of Angelina Jolie as the eponymous horned sorceress. For those who are unfamiliar with the film, here’s the brief logline: “This is the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain, Maleficent, from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” The film reveals the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.“
