Movie Review: Mirror Mirror
Snow White and the Huntsman was just released on DVD. In addition to this movie focusing on Snow White, another movie was released earlier in the year: Mirror Mirror. I finally had the opportunity to watch this movie and was pleasantly surprised. It definitely has an innocent feel to the movie, but that doesn't detract from the movie. Julia Roberts is phenomenal in this movie! There are many hilarious parts to this movie! In addition, I love the colors, designs and costumes used in the movie. If you haven't already, give this movie a viewing!
Snow White's mother died in child birth. Her father, the King (Sean Bean), then raised Snow White so that she could rule the kingdom one day. His new wife is the Queen (Julia Roberts), the most beautiful woman in the land. One day, the king leaves to fight a great evil that has invaded the land, giving Snow White a golden dagger. He rides off into the forest and never comes back. The Queen rules in his place. Jealous and threatened by Snow White and the people's devotion to her, the Queen decides that "Snow White must do what snow does best, fall."
