If you’ve ever found yourself in the mood to watch a bad movie, then you know how I felt on the evening I rented Snow White and the Huntsman.  Still, I underestimated the severity of the terribleness I was about to consume.  Watching Snow White and the Huntsman is kind of like watching plastic surgery being performed.  It’s uncomfortable, ugly, painful… just completely cringe-worthy.

I will say this, I had expected to be most bothered with Charlize Theron’s overacting, and she doesn’t disappoint in that respect.  If bigger is better, then this is her best performance.  I won’t say she does a good job, but I will say that her over-performance somehow works within the context of this film and the back story they’ve constructed for the evil queen.  Charlize Theron became almost the balm that made the film watchable.  Her scenes are a welcome break from the unbearable blandness of Kristen Stewart’s performance and the film’s near complete lack of dialogue.

Seriously.  How “KStew” continues to get work is completely beyond me.  Nonetheless, even with my fervent belief that she is a talentless hack who can’t act her way out of a paper bag, even I can see that the filmmakers didn’t give her much to do or say.  So, what’s a girl to do?  Well if you’re Kristen Stewart, you look frightened and teary-eyed and hope for the best.  Then again, maybe she had more to do but the filmmaker’s cut it all out after they saw the hack job she did with her supposedly rousing call-to-arms speech.  I don’t think it’s possible to be less inspiring.

Overall, Snow White and the Huntsman wasn’t worth the Dollar I paid to rent it.  So unless you’re looking to waste 2 hours and 10 minutes of your life just to marvel at the bad-ness, skip this one.  D-
