Snow White & The Huntsman - Movie Thoughts

I finally saw Snow White & The Huntsman this week.  Me and my bestie had been looking forward to seeing it for a while, and to be honest it surpassed what I had been expecting.  I thought it looked good anyway but I got so much more.
Visually it's stunning to watch- the creepy Queen, the magical forests and Chris Hemsworth! *swoon*
The plot was interesting, I loved the dark twist on it, definitely no Disney movie here.
Some of the acting wasn't...great.  I think Kristen Stewart did better in this than Twilight but I'm not convinced she was the best person for the part.  It lacked something.  One of the dwarves acting was also particularly wooden.
I did find myself laughing.  There was some expected comedy that really worked but I think I laughed at some parts that were not supposed to be funny, for example a dwarf saying 'I see an end to this darkness'- this was mostly because of the wooden acting previously mentioned, and that's a part where the Queen writhes on the floor and she just reminded me of a fish out of water, it looked kind of ridiculous.
Also it lacked a romance.  I needed a romantic element in it to just top it off, then it would have everything.
Over all I really enjoyed this film and definitely recommend seeing it.


  1. Oh GOOD! I've heard some negative feedback and I've been SOOOooo looking forward to it! Taking the kids next weekend, I think...

  2. It's not perfect but I think the positives far outweigh the negatives! You'll have to let me know what you think of it :)
