With ratings that soared to upwards of 4.2 million viewers for the season 2 finale of 'Game of Thrones' "Valar Morghulis." it's safe to say that just about everybody wants a piece of 'Game of Thrones' right now. Similarly, 'Snow White and the Huntsman' managed to top the box office this weekend over 'Men and Black 3' and 'The Avengers.' Might we see a bit of a mash-up in the future?
The scenery is gorgeous. Charlize Theron looks great in close-up and her costumes are spectacular. The special effect of turning all those British character actors into dwarfs is impressive. Um. . .did I mention the scenery is gorgeous?
Yeah, I think I've said all the nice things I can think of concerning 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' a would-be epic that is merely lifeless at best and flat-out insipid at worst.
It's been a long, long time coming, but at last cameras are about to roll on 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' the much-delayed fourth film in writer/director George Miller's classic post-apocalyptic series.
We're pretty sure the secret behind 'Prometheus' is full-blown media saturation, and the movie is doing a damn good job of it. But hey, who are we to complain? Now we get an even closer look at some of the characters from the film, just in case you haven't been reading the internet for the last month.
'Snow White and the Huntsman' has a lot going against it. It's the second 'Snow White' movie to come in just a few months ('Mirror, Mirror' hit theaters in late March), it's attempting to put a modern, action-movie spin on the classic fairy tale, and it stars Kristen Stewart, an actress frequently criticized for her wooden line readings.
Yet despite all this, we can't help but think 'Snow White' looks pretty damn good.
