Snow White

Classic tale – new look.  We’re checking out the more than a fairy tale version of the classic tale titled "Snow White and the Huntsman," out now on Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment.


Snow White Blu-ray



   Title: "Snow White and the Huntsman"

   Grade: 3

   Cast: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth

   Director: Rupert Sanders

   Rating: PG-13

   Runtime: 132 minutes

   Release Company: Universal Home Entertainment




The Flick: Entertaining for sure, "Snow White and the Huntsman" is pure fun escapism that doesn’t try to be anything more.  It’s got a decent princess (a forlorn Kristen Stewart), a bitchy Queen (nothing says mean and hot like Charlize Theron covered in milk!), a tough rogue (Chris Hemsworth much more engaging here then in "Thor!") and some sassy dwarfs (inspired casting – from Nick Frost to Toby Jones!), some fun action sequences and a pinch of CGI fairy magic.  It’s a film that shows it’s color right up front and on that level does not disappoint - sometimes just being entertaining is okay.   

Best Feature: There’s a cavalcade of extras on everything and everyone but the most thrilling and disturbing feature is 'Around the Kingdom: 360 Set Tour' that shows a panoramic view of entire sets (glorious work!), but is introduced by a rather pained looking Director Rupert Sanders.  (Was this filmed after the 'event' or something because it shows!)

Best Hidden Gem: Even in dwarf form Ian McShane still kicks a little person ass!

Worth the Moola: This is a movie to rent solely to be pleasantly distracted – nothing more, nothing less. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)
