Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

It’s movie review day here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Today we’re seeing the movie, Snow White and the Huntsman.

Here’s the trailer:

The Verdict: 

The Verdict: School is out for the summer, so I saw this movie with my daughter, her boyfriend, and her friend, Allison. We all seemed to have differing opinions on this movie, except for one part. The ENDING SUCKED!! Come on! It’s supposed to be an adaptation of a fairytale, right? What happens at the end of all fairytales? They kiss, a little heart forms around their heads, and the movie fades to credits. Happily Ever After.

What we all liked about the movie:
1.  Charlize Theron did an amazing job playing the evil step mother. It was very cool to watch her age then go back to perfect stunning beauty.
2.  The special effects from a digital animation perspective were very cool. From a very detailed troll, to creative ways to work magic, to a fairies’ nirvana, all really amazing.
3.  How bout a shout out for Kristen Stewart, who finally got to play a character with some fire in her britches. She leads the fight to take back her rightful throne. Love seeing her kick a little ass. Although, really, the Huntsman did save her many times.
4.  And the Huntsman, played by the dreamy Chris Hemsworth. The Huntsman went through a full range of emotions in this movie, and Chris nailed them all. Although there were many times I wanted to pick him up out of the movie and dip him in the river to clean him up a bit, he was sexy as ever. Dirty, cleaned up, drunk, whatever. We’ll have some. 
What we didn’t like about the movie:
1.  The ending. Like it ended up okay, but the actual last scene was really a letdown. Hated the acting/emotions and hated the ending.
2.  It seemed a tad lengthy in the middle.
3. How things work geographically in this far, far away land were a bit confusing. After endless wandering in the dark and scary forest, we went from green gorgeousness to snow covered in like the snap of a finger. And then when we attacked the castle to win back the throne, it was just a short horse-ride. 
4. Something to do with a horse and large white deer. (Let’s just say, we don’t like when animals get hurt.)
5.  Did I mention the end??
Even with a little drag in the middle and the final scene not what we expected, our reviews ranged from three to four stars. So even though this should have been a Happily Ever After kind of movie, we’re not in agreement as to whether it was just a Hookup or if we should start Stalking it. Either way, it’s worth seeing. 

Just a reminder of how we rank movies here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos:

One Star = Walk of shame. I was in last night’s dress, carrying my shoes as I rushed off. I can’t believe I wasted my time on him and pray no one I know sees me.

Two Stars = Bad date. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have any chemistry. Maybe he just wasn’t my type. I probably won’t answer if he calls.

Three Stars =Hookup. We had a great night together. Don’t know if it will be more than that, but it was sure fun while it lasted.

Four Stars = Stalking him. What a night! We danced, we kissed. Now if I could just get him to call me.

Five Stars = Happily ever after. I love him! I want to marry him, have his babies, and live happily ever after.

It’s a Johnny Depp Movie. If you appreciate him, go see the movie.
