Two Snow Whites, Y’all
Okay, so I'm a fan of all things snow. I've already started my snow watch here, consulted some farmers, popped open some persimmons, and am anxiously awaiting an on-air shoutout (BY NAME) from my favorite weather guy on the first snow fall, thanks to my friend Snow Loving Holly. (Seriously, guys, this is going to happen. Can someone loan me their inhaler for the event?)
So keeping with the theme, I am anxiously awaiting the two Snow White movies. I had zero faith in either of them, but now I'm intrigued.
There is the serious one, which stars Bella Swan and Charlize Theron. At least I think it's about Snow White. Judging from a few scenes, it looks like K-Stew is channeling Joan of Arc.
So that one is called Snow White and the Huntsman and Thor.
Then there's the one starring Julia Roberts, Phil Collins' daughter, and Lily Collins' eyebrows. This one is either called Mirror, Mirror or Julia Roberts' Disappearing Accent. I forget which.
I had no idea that was going to be a comedy. That changes everything. And I had no idea Nathan Lane was going to be in it. That's a ticket-buy for me.
Another instant buy is anything with Stanley Tucci in it. So now I have to see Hunger Games. Because I always support the Tooch.
Other movies I'm excited to see are The War Horse. (Though I think we know that can't end well. I'll probably be on anti-depressants before the credits roll.) And of course, Hugo.
What about you? What movies are on your list this winter?
Jenny…I really hope you would see The Hunger Games even if Stanley Tucci was not in it, but I’m with you on supporting the Tooch. When I first heard about the Snow Whites, I balked. It’s bad enough that Hollywood is all about the remakes these days, but do to do TWO of the same story back-to-back….ugh. That being sad, I’m looking forward to seeing Lily Collins’ eyebrows and hearing Julia Roberts’ disappearing accent. I might have to see the other one too just because Charlize Theron seems to have the wicked queen down pretty good….As for other movies…New Year’s Eve (I figure if it’s bad..at least it has Jon Bon Jovi in it) the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie (It’s ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS!!!) Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (Hoping there will be more of a mystery this time) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (although I’m skeptical about this one…I don’t think it’ll be as good as the original Swedish one).
Also, I REALLY want to see the movie Like Crazy, but right now it’s only in limited release…so I’m still waiting on that one.
