Review: Now that’s how you successfully reboot a fairytale in the 21st century! Pretty much everything here was an improvement over Mirror Mirror. The cast was better. Kristen Stewart somehow managed to out act someone for once. Shocking. And, Charlize actually manages to make the queen seem evil. I was genuinely terrified of her and believed that she had to be stopped. Julia Roberts’s version just seemed a little bitchy. Also, this movie has really incredible action scenes. Therefore, there was something to please just about everyone in the audience. But, by far the most impressive card this movie played was the CGI creatures they invented. I loved the world this movie was set in. From the giant trolls to the little pixies. There was always something new and exciting to take in. I was genuinely surprised how much I liked this. Might end up being one of my favorite movies of the year (top 10ish, not top 5). So, congratulations Snow White and the Huntsman. You take the 2012 Snow White Movie of the Year Award. But, really… who didn’t see that coming? Mirror Mirror never did look very good.
