I've heard about this movie from a radio station. They read the synopsis, and I was like "I'LL WATCH THIS MOVIE FOR SURE!!!" The synopsis is good enough to attract me. Some more, it's Julia Roberts as a step mother. of course I'm going! :)
I love the starting of the movie where Julia being a narrator. a good script though about Snow White. mumbling about Snow White. the sarcastic of this modern fairy tale, is awesome! hahaha... and to be honest, that's the only thing i like about this movie. duh~
the idea is so good but the story telling is messy, too fast, too predictable. it's modern side of Snow White... but... erm~~~
Snow White is too innocent, too 'nice', too gedik if you understand my point and suddenly become a heroin~ the start of the movie is sarcastic enough, and then there she comes. nice, innocent and very d typical malay style heroin. sory~ my bad.
'mirror mirror' doesn't play a good character, not good enough, not cruel enough actually. :p
BUT! i loveeee the costumes, the props, the setting, the make up, soooo nice! :D
and actually, i wish to see the cute side of the dwarfs where i used to admire back then. the cute beds, fork and spoon, things like that. tapi tidak ditekankan dalam movie ini ya!
well, maybe i expect too much from this movie. i do expect a difference like the sarcastic step mother, the more tough and masculinity side of Snow White, the cool prince. somethings like that. and only Julia Roberts as step mother plays the character well. (maybe I'm bias because i do like her in the first place) HEEE...
so, my rating is 3.7 stars. sorry Julia. i want to give 4 but thanks to the 'Snow White' yang gedik, i minus 0.3. :p it's worth to watch though. Enjoy!
