It's been years and years since I've seen the Disney version of Snow White but somehow in the back of my mind, all I can remember is a bunch of happy little men dancing around with a pretty, fairly pale skinned girl. And a wicked bitch of a queen that wants her dead. Awwww... Disney movies are so cunnin'. So of course, I had to revisit the whole plot of the original story and mutherfucker, that shit's just downright evil.
This little snippet of the plot -- kinda made me shiver a bit:
The queen becomes jealous, and orders a huntsman to take Snow White into the woods to kill her and return with her lungs and liver as proof she's dead. The huntsman tries, but finds himself unable to kill her, instead he lets her go, telling her to hide from the Queen. He then brings the queen the lungs and liver of a boar, which is prepared by the cook and eaten by the queen.
What a happy little tale the Brothers Grimm spin! Makes me all fucking warm and fuzzy inside. Somehow I don't think there will be many singing animals in this movie.
I guess this explains why KStew looks more like Joan of Arc than my image of Disney Snow White. Makes sense though -- I don't really see her wearing a frilly dress and prancing around in the forest with those dwarfs. I bet she's going to turn those little fuckers into her own personal army.
And Charlize Theron is one scary bitch as the evil Queen. I'm going to have nightmares. Evidently, she's ready to throw it down and said "I'm ready for it, bitch. Let's go!" at the start of the CC panel. She really does scare me.
I'm not really familiar with the dude playing the Prince -- I guess he was in the newest Pirates movie (which I haven't seen yet *tsk tsk*) but I'm looking forward to seeing him
But I want the Huntsman to do dirty, dirty things to me....and I also feel the need to see Thor now. Is he shirtless in Thor? Naked? I need him to be both of those things.
I actually think I'm kind of excited to see this movie -- much more so than that ridiculous version of Red Riding Hood (which I will see eventually) -- and I'm going to need to see it on the big screen. And yes, probably just so I can see the Huntsman in all his giant movie screen hotness... but please don't judge me. You know you're nodding your head right now!
Are you all excited for this one? How do you think KStew will pull off "the fairest of them all"? Think she's going to kick ass?
