a nice take on the snow white tale. unsure how two of these got green lighted for release in the same year, but it should be interesting to compare and contrast. i have no idea how any of them compare to the original grimm fairy tale. the cast is good, roberts is a real standout as the queen. she’s devilish and has just the right amount of tongue in cheek humor in her performance to never be over the top, nor to underplay the tone. lily collins is attractive and perfect as snow white. she has a quiet strength and of course the beauty you expect from snow white.
since it’s a tarsem singh film you know the visuals are going to be great and he doesn’t disappoint here. the costumes and sets are oscar-worthy as well. all that said, something about it didn’t quite come together for me. it was funny and good to look at and all that, but i wasn’t drawn in quite as much as i would have liked. maybe it was the direction or the writing or maybe it was just because i was tired.Watched in theater
