I wonder why Hollywood is too interested in re-telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This year, two versions came out. One is entitled “Snow White and the Huntsman” which caught my attention because of its attractive trailer that shows how the filmmakers imagined the magic mirror:
The movie, starring Charlize Theron as the evil queen, is an action-packed film that portrays the dark story of the popular fairytale. On the other hand, it reminded me so much of the “Twilight” saga because Kristen Stewart played the lead role. Stewart was unable to sustain her role toward the end of the movie where she was transformed into a warrior wearing an armor. Plus, she was so “Bella-like” in this film because the Huntsman and the Prince were both fighting for her love (am I hearing another “Team Edward vs Team Jacob war?) Chris Hemsworth, who played the role of the ‘huntsman’ still looked like Thor. The movie is generally entertaining but I guess there’s something wrong with the mix of stars. I’ll give a six out of ten for this movie.
Another Snow White version is the movie Mirror, Mirror starring Julia Roberts. I’ll rate this a star higher than the one with Bella’s alter ego.
