I, for one, believe it’s time for Madea to ethier retire or drop dead. How much more of the same can this character possibly go through? I understand why Tyler Perry released another Madea film after the box office disappointment that was “Good Deeds,” but give it a rest! Come up with something original! This is better than his last Madea film, but worse all at the same time. This film didn’t have all the extra black stereotypes and overused archetypes he uses, but it’s like he didn’t even try with this one. This one had white people in it, and it was the black vs. white culture shock that is so overdone. It’s not funny anymore. As a matter of fact, this film isn’t funny at all, unless you find second jokes and a hood-talking Denise Richards hilarious.
HAPPY 16th BIRTHDAY, ANNA MARGARET!
I don’t feel like make going this long and drawn out, so I’ll just get to the point. This wasn’t good. I don’t understand all the people who say this was so amazing. Did we watch the same movie? Once upon a time Kristen Stewart was a good actress. She knew how to show emotion on her face, but then she took on the role of Bella Swan and she got stupid. I don’t understand the casting at all, or how we’re supposed to believe that Kristen Stewart is fairer than Charlize Theron, but anybody but KStew would have made this film an ounce better. I understand it’s what the evil queen thinks and she thinks Snow White is fairer than her, but come on now! The script was blotchy and confused and the acting was either over the top (Charlize Theron) or just not there at all (Kristen Stewart).
Kristen Stewart’s Snow White was “The One” and very pretty, but that was about it. There was nothing more to her than being destined to kill the queen. There was no character development or arc with her, and that’s not all her fault. Her character wasn’t written to have any depth, but if she were I doubt Stewart would have been able to pull it off. She’s a less than mediocre actress and this film showcases how much she’s lacking. There was also a lack of conflict. It’s Snow White vs. The Queen and we know the battle is at the end, but did we need to see Harry Potter and Voldemort together to feel that tension? Speaking of lack of conflict, Snow White has two love interests and there’s no conflict or competition between the two men. The so-called Prince doesn’t even break the spell, so why is he even in the story? He could have been left on the cutting room floor and the story wouldn’t have missed a beat, the same with the dwarfs. There were a lot of characters and scenes introduced but they did nothing to further the plot.
In its attempt to be an epic, this film was too short to reach that standard but too long for what it really was and too crowded. No character development, terrible acting (except by Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman, who was annoyingly perfect), and terribly written. The two things it had going for it was the set design and the costume design. Other than that, it was bland. I’m sorry, but I wasn’t impressed.
She’s not down for the count and she’s still my favorite! Anna’s currently in Alabama filming her new movie “Finding Harmony” where she plays the lead and will also have songs in the film.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELLE FANNING!!!
