SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN
“Mirror Mirror On The Wall”
Rupert Sanders debut movie follows
Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen Ravenna and
her plans to conquer the entire continent.

“Fairest of Them All”
Ravenna learns from the Mirror that only the
Heart of Snow White (Stewart) will keep her from
growing old and give her ever lasting life, so she
sends a Huntsman (Hemsworth) to do her bidding
and bring Snow White before her.

Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) was
originally in talks to star as the Huntsman
but negotiations fell through

A tale based on the
Brothers Grimm’s “Snow White”

This is not your ordinary Fairy Tale, it’s woven
with dark material, haunting locations and the
Evilest Queen in all the land.

OVERALL
From Theron’s Dark Evil Queen, the beauty of
Stewart’s Snow White, the Brawn of Hemsworth’s
Huntsman & the lighter moments of the Seven
Dwarfs this movie was everything & more I hoped
it would be – pure cinematic endulgence!

Moonrise Kingdom “Mini-Review”

DIRECTOR
Wes Anderson
CAST
Bruce Willis, Bill Murray
Edward Norton, Frances McDormand
Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman,
Jason Schwartzman, Harvey Keitel

MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story
of two young troubled kids who have fallen
in love and decide to run away together, but
that’s only the spine of the story – this is
Wes Anderson we are talking about, the
guy responsible for the brilliant Rushmore,
The Darjeeling Limited 
and The Royal
Tenenbaums
 so you’ve been warned!

There is something exciting about a new
Wes Anderson movie – the stories he weaves
into a movie picture are fascinating, his fun,
colorful characters mostly weird are so
engaging to the viewer and his terrific camera
work, sometimes almost Kubrick in style
enhances the Anderson Experience.

OVERALL
With the distinct direction of Anderson
Moonrise Kingdom was an enthralling
watch, one of my favorite movies of 2012.

 Written by Wes Anderson & Roman Coppola
this movie has many great attributes – no more
than the two young actors making their screen
debuts – Gilman (Sam) and Hayward (Suzy)
who were both delightful – their first kiss and
their dance on the beach was pure magic.

There won’t be many movies that are better
than Moonrise Kingdom this year so take
yourself to the cinema and enjoy!

Men In Black III “Mini-Review”

DIRECTOR
Barry Sonnenfeld
CAST
Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones
Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson,
Alice Eve, Jemaine Clement

MEN IN BLACK III is the 3rd & possibly the
final movie (yea right) in this sci-fi franchise
featuring Agents J (Smith) and K (Jones).

J (Smith) has to time travel to the year
1969 and stop intergalactic criminal
Boris the Animal from changing his fate
and in the process re-writing history.

Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men In Black II
was released 10 years ago in 2002.

Along with the 3 Men In Black movies
Sonnenfeld has also directed Smith in
Wild Wild West back in 1999.

OVERALL
I had lots of fun with this movie, the
injection of new characters, the time
travel aspect of the film and watching
the movie on IMAX 3D all contributed
to a fun cinematic experience.

Men in Black III has some fantastic
movie moments – the Chrysler Building
scene was knee trembling, the introduction
of W‘s Josh Brolin was fine casting and
the smaller roles of Bill Hader as Warhol
and The Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger
turn as Boris The Animal’s sexy cake
bearing Lily Poison was lots of fun.

Men in Black III deserves to be seen on the
big screen – Will Smith’s first film in over
three years is a triumphant return!
