Another retelling of the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tale of a girl who is left with her stepmother, the queen, after her father dies. The queen (Julia Roberts) is very jealous of Snow (Lily Collins) because of her beauty. This dark tale, closer to the story than the Disney version, tells of Snow’s adventures to try to gain back the throne which is rightfully hers. The seven dwarfs are seedy little guys, but agree to help Snow to return to the throne.

There were two Snow White films that came out this summer. The other was “Snow White and the Huntsman”. Of the two, I really feel the other one was better, and Chalize Theron really did the wicked queen to the hilt! But Julia Roberts gives it a good try in this version, but it’s a lot harder to forget that she’s Julia Roberts after all, and not an evil queen. Still the special effects are pretty good, and it’s not a bad film at all. It’s too bad that it gets compared all the time to the other film, as it would have done really well had it been the only one. But it’s not a story that we haven’t seen before, and that turns off a lot of people, so it didn’t get great treading in the Box Office department. Still, not that the other film is out of our minds, and this one is available on DVD, why not give it a chance. It’s a bit scary for little kids, but for anyone above about 10, it’s going to be a pretty decent family adventure. It’s nice that Show White is not “that girl from Twilight” and it gives us a chance to get to know her at Snow White and not some famous actor in the role. At the same time she is very good at it.

All in all this is a nice family rental, and a good evening at home movie night film. I really did enjoy myself watching this.

Mirror Mirror is another traipse through the fairy tale of Snow White, this time without animation or songs. Oh, there's a poisoned apple, and a magic mirror, and a houseful of dwarfs living in the woods, not to worry--and of course, there's a wicked queen, embodied by Julia Roberts in witchy mode. The pure-as-driven-you-know-what heroine is played by Lily Collins, and here poor Snow is expelled as always from the magical castle and left in the forest, where she comes upon the dwarfs. Now here's easily the best part of the movie: the seven dwarfs are boisterous highwaymen, stealing from passersby while wearing springy stilts (the spirited crew includes Danny Woodburn, from Seinfeld, and Jordan Prentice, from In Bruges). Also giving it a game try is Armie Hammer (The Social Network), as the prince who wanders into the middle of the tug-of-war between queen and princess. Hammer's charming, and the movie has the superficial visual gloss of director Tarsem Singh's previous efforts (including The Fall). But the breezy tone and tongue-in-cheek approach are ultimately so facile they leave you with nothing much to care about, and the Disney cartoon classic seems dark and tough-minded by comparison. Dopey, you never looked so good. --Robert Horton
