Yeah, I'm with Dazzler.  I think I need to go for my fourth viewing of Avengers.

This is sad, too, because, aside from Stewart's presence, I had high hopes for this film.

Rob, can you give a little insight into how appropriate this might be for an 8-year old girl?  My daughter saw the trailer in the theater a while back and has seen the TV spots and really wants to see this.  I'm concerned that there might be too much of the scary in this for her (aside from Stewart's complete lack of acting ability).  I'd appreciate any insight you or my fellow Maniacs who may have seen this can share.

Kristen Stewart can't act? Shocking.  Hell, her thespian abilities rank right up with Kirsten Dunst.. . .  

IceKnight: you are wrong about polishing a turd though; Mythbusters proved you can (although Kristen Stewart may debunk the debunking ot that myth).

 The movie was doomed the minute it tried to assert that Stewart was fairer than Theron.

What's with all the fairytale material lately?  Both Once Upon a Time and Grim did well enough to be renewed (and I would have given you loooong odds on that before they premiered).  We have two Snow White movies and a Jack and the Beanstalk film later this summer.  What's up with this?

Speaking of Once Upon A Time, it did interesting things with Snow White as a major character.  We're seeing a lot of reintrepretations of this particurlar tale.

This sounds like exactly what I expected out of this movie.  Did they do anything other take the Tim Burton Alice & Wonderland story and popullate it with Snow White characters?  It sure doesn't seem that way.

I'm with fengibbon.  I really could not buy into the idea that Kristen Stewart is fairer (or will become fairer) than Charlize Theron.  The latter one of the most beautiful people in the world.  The former is Kristen Stewart.  It just doesn't work.  

Fortunately, Once Upon a Time satisfied my fairy tale needs for the year so I can safely pass on this.

This is sad because I was really hoping this would be a sleeper hit. It looked really good and the stuff I've been reading about it made it sound appealing. Before the director got ahold of it the screenplay for this was listed as one of the best unproduced screenplays of 2010.

Unfortunately this will be universals second big flop of the year next to battleship. If Bourne Legacy (which I'm really excited about) doesn't do some steller numbers they are going to be hurting. Not a good way to celebrate their 100 year anniversary as a movie studio.

Man that sucks, going to see this Saturday. Wife is wanting to see so I will endure.

This was a great premise and if they had used the dwarves concept from Mirror Mirror more it would have been better. You know I have heard rumors this was originally written as a erotic fairy tale. I mean what would you expect a beautiful female to be doing in the words with 7 midgets. :)

I saw all the Twihards heading into the theater last night as I was leaving Chernobyl Diaries (which was pretty lame).  There were a lot of them, but not as many as for the midnight showing of The Avengers.  I suppose most of them had school this morning, even if it is the last day before summer vacation.

oh no... i remember now my wife and her friends mentioned they really wanted to see this when it came out. I hope they forgot!!

 Just shocking.  From the brief scene of bad acting from Kristen falling down in the woods (who can't act falling down?) I had a feeling this would be a stinker.  Seems the majority of reviewers agree with Rob on this film.  Glad it wasn't on my personal radar.
