Moviefriday: Mirror mirror
Title: Mirror mirror
Starring: Julia Roberts, Lily Collins and Armie Hammer
I think I’ve always loved fairytails. In many ways they are very black and white; some of the people are only wicked and the other ones are only good. Not very realistic, but it’s a fairytail, they are not supposed to be realistic.
I want to believe that most people know the story of Snow white. She and her father are close, her mother is dead. The king, her father, remarries, but the new queen is jealous of Snow white, and when her father dies, the queen order Snow white killed. Things don’t go as the queen plans, so Snow white survives. This will of course change everything.
In so many fairytails the main girl in the story is a damsel in distress that needs saving. But the times are evolving, the girls are getting better at standing up for themselves 🙂
I loved the mirror that the queen (Roberts) walked through, how she ended up in a in-between place (at least that’s what it looked like). The dwarves were amazing and funny. The prince, not that convinced about him, honestly, he fell a little flat for me. Which is sad because I thought Snow (Collins) was convincing. The queen (Roberts) was good, but I wouldn’t have minded a bit more of an evil streak in her. I like princess movies, and this one was really entertaining, even though I didn’t love everything about it. It was a very cute movie, but I don’t think I will rewatch it.
