nothing to see here

I just realised how long it's been since I posted here; honestly, I forget this exists sometimes.

I saw Snow White and the Huntsman tonight, and I think it's the most I've enjoyed a film this year, and so far, this has been a banner year for movies, right?

This will seem silly, but good as it was, the thing I'll probably remember about it is the Irish dwarf, because it is so rare to have an Irish character speak in the vernacular without becoming a caricature.

It isn't perfect--the stuff in the secret garden place was verging on too twee, and the last scene was very badly done. Its gender politics were too traditional for the film that had come before, and it was very oddly and badly directed. Waste of an ending.

But mostly it swept me along like I was a kid seeing Beauty and the Beast for the first time.
