I invited over some of my friends for a Snow White and The Huntsmen movie party at my place a couple weeks ago. We all agreed: The Queen should have killed Kristen Stewart.
Overall, the movie was pretty true to what we had heard about it: a twist on the classic story, dark, and full of visual appeal. Especially the Huntsmen. Chris Hemsworth is nice eye candy in anything.
Yellowtail sent some great goodies for us to enjoy with the film, including both a red and a white wine. I’m more of a red drinker myself, but Kelly from Muddy Flowers thought the Chardonnay was pretty tasty.
The Queen’s crowns were fantastic, and it was even more fun to chat about the kind of crowns we would want to wear while sipping Yellowtail Merlot. If you haven’t tried their wines, you should. They come in several varieties that are all delish and are very budget-friendly.
We totally pretended we were Statler and Waldorf while munching on popcorn, cookies, and tootsie rolls from Popcorn Factory.
Shouts of “that’s not Whistle While We Work” and “are there trolls in every fairy tale?” got called out from the couch and my giant FomBag where Kelly was getting comfy with Isaiah.
We all thought it was pretty cool that the dwarves were average height actors, but the special effects made them look smaller. The camera angles and movement were different from what we were used to. It almost seemed like the movie was filmed as though someone was walking with the camera and witnessing the scenes as they played out.
None of us are big Kristen Stewart fans, so I admit, we picked on her a lot throughout the movie. No offense Twilight buffs, but she just doesn’t have a wide range of emotions when she’s acting. We decided that the movie would have been better if the Queen had killed her at the end. That would kind of fit with the dark theme of the film, right?
Even though we thought the movie could use a little improvement, it was still fun to get together with the girls for a movie night. Even a bad movie could be turned into a cool night with the girls when you add in Yellowtail!
