Two new movies are soon to be released telling their own versions of the classic Good versus Evil tale of Snow White. Who would have known the battle of the two movies would also become a battle of good versus evil, or more accurately, good versus rubbish.
Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth looks like an amazing dark and new take on the story, possibly annoying purists who picture Snow White as a helpless thing singing to little birds in the woods. Charlize is fantastic (from the trailer) as the Wicked Queen and Chris Hemsworth could just stand there looking all rugged and buff and I’d be happy.
The second movie, Mirror Mirror, starring Julia Roberts as the Wicket Queen looks like it couldn’t decide if it was trying to be Tim Burton crazy, Shrek funny or take itself seriously, thus failing to achieve any of them. Granted I’m only going on the trailers here, but that’s what the studios are banking on to get audiences in. Julia, please sort out that accent. It’s a bit odd.
