Mr. Sheridan: Kristen's best work to date? Obviously you've only seen Twilight and not taken the time to see any of her other movies. When you get a chance check out her incredible performances in Speak, The Cake Eaters, The Yellow Handkerchief, The Runaways, Welcome to the Rileys. She's so good in SWATH and she's excellent in those movies too. I find it sad that like most "critics" you give her a good review but feel compelled to add a last line that negates anything positive. Why?
I think Sheridan is right. She is largely one dimensional and "mopey" couldnt describe her more accurately if you had an electrified moping machine! If she puts her hand through her hair one more time in one more movie....
Excellent film - moody, superbly acted, visual feast - just don't ever think of bringing kids under 12 or possibly even 14 - some scenes are truly disturbing!
This year's other Snow White film is definitely aimed at an older audience and is more in tone with Snow White: A Tale Of Terror. It's a revisionist take on the wellworn fairytale, mixing in creatures and battle scenes as well. The core premise of the fairytale is the same, but is ramped-up to heighten the tension. Initially sent to capture Snow White by the evil Queen Ravenna, the Huntsman teams up with Snow and the grizzled dwarves to fight back and return the kingdom to its former glory. Charlize Theron gives Ravenna a sharp, dangerous edge, but there's also some specks of vulnerability there too. It's the best performance in the film - no wonder actors love playing baddies. After many dark, intense scenes the dwarves bring some welcome humour though not enough. This is a dark, moody, menacing film that seems out-of-place in summer - October would be a more appropriate slot for its autumnal feel. It's not the definitive Snow White film, but it's certainly one of the more interesting and visually ravishing ones.
Really enjoyed this hasve seen it twice now and both times i loved it
I was only interested at the beginning and the end. A total snooze-fest in between.
@philip...someone has stolen the full-stop off yer keyboard there. Can't be having that...go get em!
This film was horrendous Stewarts long bewildered looks into the camera were equally met with my own Why was she so awkward Was Bob Hoskins only sporadically blind as he seemed to be able to see sometimes and then lost his sight on other occasions Why was Stewart holding a twig at the end Why was the huntsman not with everyone else at the top at the coronation It reminded me of the haminess of a badly done Shakespearean play without the eloquent dialogue So many questions about a film I do not want to think about again
Will be interesting to see Charlize Theron in the wicked witch role for a change.
I thought it was very good . There is a lot going on . Charilze Theron is excellent as the queen
Started very well but lost it half way through. Good film for a group of 12 year old girls to see :(
OMG the best movie i have ever seen well done kristen lol love it cya keep it going i meen up hahaha got ya
