This movie would have been better if they had just thrown out the script and made the cast stand around the beautiful sets and look pretty.

Children’s fairy tales seem magical and cute at a glance, but if you look a little deeper into the stories that parents have unwittingly fed to their children over the past century, they really are disturbing at best. With ‘Hansel and Gretel’ we have parents abandoning their kids in the woods followed by an encounter a witch who cooks and eats kids. ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ has an innocent little girl looking to do a good deed for her ill grandmother, only to come face-to-face with a man-eating wolf. How about ‘Cinderella’; the tale that gave stepmothers a really bad rap?
Hollywood has also not been shy about putting an adult spin on such precious childhood memories, like the 2011 version of ‘Red Riding Hood’; Guillermo del Toro’s very creepy ‘Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) and a previous …

Fairy tales from television mini drama comes as a gear for Sanders huntsman. Yes the title might really make the enticing fans of snow white to hook up and see the spark of her charm. The theme sets the tone by realizing that a evil queen wants to be immortal forever. Well, so to speak, immortality concept, I have seen before. Recently, I had seen On Stranger Tides, where the so called fountain of youth plays a high role. So does Snow white and Huntsman offer some different theme than slappy On Stranger Tides? Oh yes. But it gets chucked so hard that Sanders forgets the plot proceedings.
A king who fought bravely falls for the charm of an evil woman (Charlize Theron). Unknowing of her intention she is made the queen and his only daughter Snow White (Kristen Stewart) witnesses his …

Although I love fairy tales I wasn't too enamored about seeing Kristen Stewart as Snow White but when I saw the trailer I thought this movie might be worth seeing because of Charlize Theron as the evil Queen Ravena and Chris Hemsworth as the titular Huntsman whose physique is most definitely worth a look or two, The story of Snow White is well known except this one has a darker tone and a bigger emphasis on the queen and the huntsman so I would spare you the trouble of reading yet another summary.
Charlize Theron is awesome playing her part with passion and conviction so as to be absolutely captivating and believably evil but beneath the obvious nastiness, Theron gives us a character deeply troubled, riddled by insecurity and teetering along a fraying tightrope of sanity. I’ve …

I agree, I don't think it was awful. Charliza Theron tried her damnedest to keep it afloat and Bob Hoskins actually made me care for at least a little bit. The visuals were all very nice as well.&nbsp;

I think she actually may have shown, like, three emotions during the film, though her rousing, inspiring pre-war speech was more "I'M SCREAMING REALLY LOUD TO INSPIRE YOU!" The movie wasn't nearly as terrible as I was expecting - though mainly because all those dwarves were played by actual actors I like.

Hold on a second ... one emotion? Asking a bit much from young Miss Stewart.&nbsp;

Probably the biggest film this weekend - My only question going in is will Kristen Stewart manage to show more than one emotion and can Chris Hemsworth turn in an action role that will not remind me of Thor. Fingers crossed that this at least turns out better than Battleship.
