Snow White and the Huntsman

Which one the new queen Snow White would choose as her groom, William or Eric, the huntsman? Snow White and the Huntsman ends and I ask this question myself.

Beautiful people, beautiful story, beautiful graphics, beautiful screenplay and beautiful performance. This is an entertaining movie. Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, and Hossein Amini worked in the writing department.

They do not experiment too much with anything, but a slight twist in the Snow White’s story by making her a warrior queen. Released in 2012, the movie shows the Snow White story, in the Brothers Grimm collection, for the younger generation, with our very own Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart as Snow White, the daughter of King Magnus.

Charlize Theron adorns the negative role of Queen Ravenna, with her beauty and skills. Chris Hemsworth is Eric the Huntsman, a resurrection for the Thor star. I do not think Avengers gave him much space on the stage. Tony Stark stole much of the gleam from anyone else in Avengers. However, in Snow White and the Huntsman, Chris is remarkable.

Rupert Sanders is the director and his job is evident in how much the movie reminds and connects us with the tradition and invokes nostalgia. There are areas in the movie in which if you find yourself at the end of your seats holding tightly onto the hand rest, do not blame anyone. It is just that the movie is powerful. No wonder this movie won awards for best costume design and best visual effects.

A special notice for those who reside near the Dark Forest and the Kingdom of Snow White, Queen Ravenna, just before the pure Snow White stabbed her, had mentioned something like, she had unfathomable powers that “were given” to her. The questions remain; who gave it to her? What were those powers?

So be careful folks. The Dark Force might be out there, looking for a right opportunity to barge in; serving us horror, much like in that scene where the queen’s rider shoots the magical white deer.

As usual, you may find no stars here fellow traveler. So clip your own.
