A twist in The Tale


As I am child less, I did what I usually do when a 12A movie comes out that I want to see. I borrowed one. I find this way works best for me. We sit and stuff ourselves with sugary snacks and drinks, watch & laugh at the movie, then I get to take said child home.
I had read a review of this and it wasn't very favourable, but I decided I wanted to go and see for myself.

We loved it! Lily Collins (daughter of Phil) was a beautiful Snow White, & Julia Roberts a very Wicked Queen. There were several modern twists to the tale, which I don't think were a bad thing.


Aileen (who will be 10 in July) & I laughed a lot, Ate all the popcorn, (sweet...not salted) and had a little dance at he end scene.

There is apparently a second movie out based on the Fairy Tale. Snow White and The Huntsman, I guess this will be darker, has anyone seen that?

The rain is continuous. It hasn't stopped since they announced the hose pipe ban. Good thing we're not made of sugar.

  1. I quite liked the look of this as well but just haven't had the time to see it. It's been raining here, ever since we got a dog to walk!!!

  3. I've been begging my daughters to come with me to see this, so far all I'm getting is "NOOOOO!" Might have to go by myself...

  4. I loved this movie too. I thought Julia was hilarious. And I didn't realize that "Snow" was Phil Collins' daughter.

  6. I've heard mixed reviews about this. But it looks quite cute. The Snow White and the Huntsman isn't out yet (I don't think) but it will be darker.

  7. I do think it is curious there are two Snow White films releasing so close together, although they do seem quite different. I saw the movie but had no idea that was Phil Collin's daughter. I can't remember if she had an English or American accent :) Your newest follower, Laura

  8. PS - in the last scene, I thought she looked a lot like Audrey Hepburn. Coincidence?

  13. I'd like to see this, too. Love a good fairy tale!

    I think you're clever to borrow a kid, fill her up with sugary snacks and then drop her off at home again. I have to bring the kids back to the house with me, and it's not always a pretty picture, believe me!

  15. I haven't seen this movie yet, but it looks really good! Snow White and the Huntsman looks to be a lot darker, but also interesting!
