Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

Well, this was boring. Not just boring, but incredibly dull. I mean why is it so dull?

There are a lot of problems with Snow White and the Huntsman. I was tempted to make a pros and cons list, but then I realized it would really just be a cons list. Oh, what the heck. Here it is:

Pros:
(1) Good cinematography
(2) Charlize Theron is gorgeous
(3) Somewhat good costumes (Well, Ravenna's were quite pretty, weren't they?)

Cons:
(1) It is so, so boring. Not in the least bit captivating.
(2) Kristen Stewart

(4) No chemistry amongst the actors
(5) The dwarves seemed to be there simply because they had to be
(6) Bad script
(7) Borrowed too much from movies that are far better
(8) Lacks feeling
(9) You shouldn't prefer Ravenna to Snow White...
(10) Bad dialogue
(11) Cheesy
(12) Takes itself too seriously

Anyhoo, basic plot: Laura Pickler decides to compete in a butter carving contest after her butter carving champion husband, Bob Pickler, is told he can no longer compete. Laura is furious about this since butter is apparently all she has, and butter has made her what she is today. Hmm. Funnily enough, she has the talent to pull it off...except that an even more talented competitor arrives in the form of a ten year-old girl named Destiny. She must not be allowed to win!

It's not particularly funny or original, aside from the butter carving. It…
