Snow White and the Huntsman
Last night we watched "Snow White and the Huntsman". It was a bit of an unfortunate experience... not because the movie was bad altogether, but because you could see how it could have been much better. I think the main problem was the casting.
Charlize Theron as Ravena was great. But only because she does any role great! I would sooner have watched her portrait Snow White, and there would have been many other great choices for the witch [Nicole Kidman? =P I don't know... I just like that idea!].
Chris Hemsworth for Mr. Huntsman... ok, that worked quite well. And the rest of the cast was also pretty good.
But then, Kristen Stewart for Snow White?? I mean... whatever the bloody hell gave them that idea? Aside from the fact that she looks all wrong for the role, she is also incapable of acting! Her happy, sad, scared, and excited face are all the same face, with slight changes in how much her mouth is open.
So you have a good cast, more or less good directing, some great effects... and then you go and choose the wrongest possible actress for your main role. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how to destroy a movie. =)
