How to Kiss

All have tutorial but we didn't expect about this Look this tutorial about how to kiss it from the website called wikihow

  1. Close your eyes as your lips make contact. In some Western societies, kissing someone with your eyes open is an indication of dishonesty and detachment. Play it safe by closing your eyes.
  2. 2
    Know the mechanics of a kiss. As far as your mouth is concerned, there are three variables you can turn up or down when you kiss someone. Here's what to do:
    • Lips: For a romantic kiss, your lips should remain soft and relaxed, and not tightly puckered. Focus on keeping them slightly parted, and they should be perfect. Try to avoid making obvious or loud smacking noises - if you find yourself doing this, try moving your lips more slowly and kissing your partner more softly. Once you're more comfortable, you can use your lips to lightly suck on your partner's lower lip.
    • Tongue: Using your tongue during a kiss is, in Western culture, referred to as a French kiss. To get started, lightly and briefly run your tongue over your partner's lower lip. If he or she seems to respond well to that, gradually move your tongue in closer. Whatever you do, keep it in motion - letting it sit limply in your partner's mouth isn't appealing.
    • Teeth: Using your teeth on a first kiss should probably be avoided, but you can try using them a bit in later kisses. Lightly take your partner's lower lip between your teeth, and let them graze over it as you pull back slightly. Don't use so much pressure that it becomes a bite. Be warned that not everyone likes teeth in their kissing - if your partner doesn't seem to enjoy it, back off.
  3. 3
    Lock lips. Instead of trying to kiss your partner's mouth straight-on, aim to take the bottom or upper lip between yours. Alternate between these and see what feels more comfortable. Apply a bit of pressure closing your lips as you pull away.
    • You can practice this on the length of your finger to get an idea for how much pressure to apply. You can also gently pinch one of your lips between your index finger and thumb to see how it feels to have someone kiss you in this way.
  4. 4
    Take a break and make eye contact. Open your eyes. Once your gaze meets theirs, smile a little and decide whether or not to go for another kiss. If things are going well, keep going. Or if one or both of you think that's enough for today, pull away, smile, and shift your gaze elsewhere.
  5. 5
    Adjust the tempo. Mix up your kissing by going slowly or quickly. Slow is nice for taking the time to discover what your partner likes; fast can impart a sense of excitement and urgency.
  6. 6
    Know where to put your hands.
    Know where to put your hands.
    Know where to put your hands. Don't just let your hands hang in the air in front of you as you kiss someone - make them help you! Place your hands lightly on your partner's shoulders, or around his or her waist. (In Western culture, girls generally put their hands on a boys shoulders, while he puts his hands around her waist.)
    • If you want to take the intimacy up a notch, use your hands to pull your partner in closer - put both around the back of your partner's head and tangle them in his or her hair, put them on the sides of his or her face, using your thumb to sweep across the cheekbone, or put one hand under his or her chin and tilt it upward.
  7. 7
    Remember to come up for air. Being a bit breathless is part of the fun of kissing, but it's OK to take a break if you start feeling too lightheaded. If you want to maintain closeness while you breathe for a second, detach your lips and simultaneously lean in so that your forehead is resting against your

'MIB 3' Leads Again, 'Prometheus' Opens Strong


MIB 3 held well in a few of its major markets and wound up in first place once again at the overseas box office. Meanwhile, Snow White and the Huntsman did solid business in its debut, while Prometheus put up some strong numbers a week ahead of its U.S. opening.

MIB 3 added $78.6 million to bring its foreign total to $275.1 million through less than two weeks in theaters. The movie eased 29 percent to $15.4 million in China, and held about even in Germany $5.34 million) and the U.K. ($4.88 million) following soft debuts in both of those markets. The movie also added $7 million in Russia, $5.3 million in Japan, $3.8 million in South Korea, $3.7 million in Mexico, $3.7 million in Australia, $3.2 million in France, and $3 million in Brazil. It's already passed Men in Black II's $251.4 million foreign total, and it should eclipse the first Men in Black's $338.7 million sometime next weekend.

Snow White and the Huntsman debuted to an estimated $39.3 million in 45 markets. It had fine starts in the U.K. ($5.5 million), Mexico ($4.4 million), Germany ($4 million), Spain ($3.8 million), South Korea ($3 million) and Brazil ($2.5 million), though none were standouts. Among major markets, it has yet to open in Australia, France, Italy, Japan and Russia.

Prometheus took first place in 14 of its 15 markets and earned $34.8 million this weekend. In Russia, its $11.1 million is the third-highest opening for a Fox movie behind Avatar and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, and its $10.1 million debut in the U.K. is the best ever for a Ridley Scott movie. 3D was a big part of that U.K. result, as the premium-priced format accounted for 73 percent of sales. Finally, Prometheus's $6.7 million start in France is the third-best debut this year for an English-language movie behind The Avengers and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Along with its U.S. opening, Prometheus expands in to 35 markets including Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan next weekend.

International sensation The Avengers added $12.4 million in 54 markets, and on Sunday it became just the fifth movie ever to earn more than $800 million overseas. Also of note: on Friday, the Marvel flick passed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2's $1.33 billion worldwide total to move in to third place on the all-time chart. So far, The Avengers has earned $1.36 billion worldwide, and it should pass $1.4 billion long before its August opening in Japan.

Hugo debuted to a weak $2.67 million at 6,000 locations in China this weekend. The Martin Scorsese movie, which was nominated for 11 Academy Awards (and won five), has now earned at least $111 million overseas.

Next weekend should be a busy one on the international circuit: aside from the Prometheus expansion, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted opens in 28 markets including Brazil, China, France, Mexico, Russia and South Korea.

Around-the-World: 'Madagascar 3' Skips Europe, Wins Overseas Anyway

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Due to competition from the Euro Cup, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted largely avoided opening in Europe, though it still took the top spot at the foreign box office this weekend with a strong $75.5 million haul.

Out of its 28 countries, its strongest was Russia with $16.4 million. That's one of the Top 10 openings ever there, and is about on par with Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. It was also a monster in Brazil, where its $11 million debut was the best in that market since last July's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Other notable debuts occurred in China ($10.4 million), Mexico ($6.6 million), South Korea ($4.3 million) and Argentina ($3.6 million). It took the top spot in all of these markets with the exception of South Korea.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted out-grossed Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in all of the above markets; ironically, the only major territory where it fell short of its predecessor was in France ($7.6 million), which was the movie's only major European debut. That could be a result of the Euro Cup, though the French team doesn't play until Monday.

Based on these strong openings, it's likely that Madagascar 3 at least comes close to eclipsing Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa's $423.9 million total. The animated sequel expands in to 15 more markets next weekend, though none of them are significant.

Prometheus added $39.2 million from 50 markets for a new total of $91.5 million. It opened to an impressive $6.8 million in Australia, and was also strong in South Korea ($4.3 million). In its second weekend in the U.K., the movie held first place with $5.2 million, and has so far amassed $25 million in director Ridley Scott's native country. Next weekend, Prometheus expands in to 14 additional markets including Mexico and Brazil, and it still has Spain, Germany, Japan and Italy on the horizon.

After two weekends on top, MIB 3 took third place with an estimated $38.3 million (off 45 percent from last week). It's top market so far is China, where it added $7 million for a total of $63.4 million. Overall, MIB 3 reached $352.1 million overseas, which is the highest foreign gross for the franchise ahead of Men in Black's $338.7 million.

In its second outing, Snow White and the Huntsman grossed $24.6 million for an early total of $83.5 million. It added $3.6 million in the U.K., $2.7 million in Mexico, and $2.6 million in both Brazil and Germany. Next weekend, the revisionist fairy tale epic expands in to France, Russia and Japan, among other smaller markets.

Around-the-World Roundup: ‘The Avengers’ Assemble $185.1 Million Overseas Debut

A week ahead of its U.S. debut, Marvel's The Avengers opened in 39 foreign territories and scored a truly heroic $185.1 million. The movie took first place in all of its markets, and set new opening weekend records in a dozen of them as well.

The Avengers had its top start in the United Kingdom ($24.7 million), though that only ranks 16th all-time there. In Australia, the movie's $19.7 million is the second-highest five-day opening ever, while its $15.9 million debut in Mexico is a new record. It also set records in Brazil ($11.3 million), Taiwan ($7.7 million), the Philippines ($6.5 million), Hong Kong ($4.6 million) and seven other smaller markets.

While not quite reaching all-time levels, the movie also had very strong starts in South Korea ($12.9 million), France ($12.7 million), Italy ($10.4 million), and Spain ($7.3 million). Oddly, it only opened to $6.7 million in Germany, though looking at past Avengers movie grosses it doesn't appear the Germans are as fond of the team as the rest of the world.

Across the 12 markets where estimates are available, The Avengers opened over twice as high, on average, as Iron Man 2, which currently holds the team's overseas record with $311.5 million (a number The Avengers is going to annihilate within the next few weeks).

The $185.1 million debut ranks ninth on the all-time foreign openings chart, which on the surface might not look all that astounding. However, it reached that level in only 70 percent of its potential theaters, and it has yet to debut in major markets China, Russia, and Japan. Chinese and Russian audiences get the movie with the U.S. this coming weekend, while the Japanese need to wait until August.

Based off this opening, The Avengers could reasonably finish with nearly $600 million overseas, and it could even wind up higher than that.

Thanks to The Avengers debut, Battleship plummeted 61 percent to an estimated $23.5 million this weekend. It added $8 million in China and held first place in Russia with $3.2 million (as previously noted, both of these markets didn't have The Avengers). The movie has now made $170.9 million overseas, and should be able to push past the $200 million mark with this batch of territories. The board game adaptation opens in Latin America on May 10, and in the U.S. on May 18.

Titanic 3D continued its remarkable run in China by adding an estimated $15.2 million for the five-day weekend. That brings its Chinese total to $126.1 million, which is a little less than half of its $257.6 million overseas total. Thanks to the re-release, Titanic's overall foreign gross has now passed $1.5 billion.

American Reunion added an estimated $15.2 million from 41 markets this weekend. In Germany, the movie opened to an outstanding $6.6 million, which ranks second right behind The Avengers. The comedy sequel has so far earned $75.9 million overseas.
In its sixth weekend in release, The Hunger Games earned $7.5 million overseas. That brings its foreign total to $229.5 million, and its worldwide (domestic plus foreign) total past the $600 million mark.

'Avengers' Joins $1 Billion Club After 19 Days UPDATED

'The Avengers'
Disney’s “The Avengers” boasted the biggest second weekend in box office history with a stunning $103.2 million, down a mild 50% from its debut and bringing the 10 day cume for the Marvel Studios film to an unprecedented $373.2 million domestic and $628.9 million internationally. (See top ten weekend chart below.) The Marvel film will pass the $1 billion worldwide mark May 13, its 19th day in release, the first Marvel and fifth Disney film (along with "Pirates the Caribbean" franchise titles "Dead Man's Chest" and "On Stranger Tides," "Alice in Wonderland," and "Toy Story 3") to pass that global box office mark. It's the fastest film to reach $200 million (three days) and $300 million (nine days).

The only film opening in wide release this weekend was Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated “Dark Shadows,” the latest and eighth collaboration between director Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp.  “Dark Shadows” debuted with an estimated $28.8 million from 3,755 locations to place second, which was on the low side of expectations as many observers thought the film would open between $30 million and $35 million. “Shadows” did receive a nice 12% bump from Friday to Saturday.
Thanks to the stellar hold of “Avengers” and the solid opening by “Dark Shadows,” the box office in North America overall was up a robust 54% from the comparable period a year ago. The total for all films this weekend is estimated to be around $172 million.

"Avengers' Shatters North American Box Office Records with $200-Million Haul UPDATED

The summer of 2012 is off to a sizzling best start ever as Disney’s “The Avengers” shattered North American box office records by a wide margin this weekend.  Distributor estimates have the Marvel Studios production racking up a heart pounding $200.3 million in its first three days of release – marking the biggest opening in box office history by far. With the film debuting in 4,349 locations, the per-theater average was a staggering $46,063.
Joss Whedon's “Avengers” topped the previous holder of that distinctive title, Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II,” which opened with $169.2 million in July of last summer, by close to $30 million. The opening marks the first time a film has ever topped the $200 million mark in three days or on its debut weekend.
“Avengers” began its international release 12 days ago and has so far generated an estimated $441.5 million through the weekend, giving the superhero movie a worldwide total of a jaw-dropping $641.8 million.
The overall weekend in North America was up a staunch 49% compared with the comparable session last year, generating an estimated $248 million and giving the summer a great start. During the same weekend last year, “Thor” opened with $65.7 million and the weekend total was $166.5 million.
Indications of the blowout frame began brewing when Fandango reported that more than 1,000 show times were sold out in advance of Friday’s opening and that ticket sales were outperforming all previous Marvel titles, including “Spiderman” and all “Avengers”-related films, as well as last summer’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”  In polling done in April, “Avengers” was the most anticipated film of the summer.
The superhero team-up grossed $80.5 million on Friday, marking the second biggest single day ever, behind “Deathly Hallows Part II” with $91.1 million.  On Saturday “Avengers” pulled in a huge $69.7 million, which now stands as the biggest Saturday of all time. In addition, the opening weekend for “Avengers” has surpassed the total domestic cumes of “Captain America” and “Thor.”
The PG-13 rated “Avengers” brings together in one film the iconic Marvel figures of Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Nick Fury.  It also assembles a starry line-up: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd, and Samuel L. Jackson.  The film is based on the Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” which was first published in 1963.
The opening has provided an amazing start indeed to the relationship between Disney and Marvel as the first Marvel title ever distributed by Disney.  The action sci-fi adventure is clearly a four-quadrant film, pulling in everyone from every demographic across the board.  With a reported production budget of $220 million, “Avengers” is already in the black – a rare event in the world of high cost tentpole pictures.
“The Avengers” was given the thumbs-up by both audiences and critics, with moviegoers giving the picture a rare A+ CinemaScore, which all but guarantees excellent word of mouth, and 94% of critics gave the film a positive nod, according to (Metacritic is a more reserved 69%.)
Midnight previews for “Avengers” grossed $18.7 million, which was the eighth-highest ever for midnight screenings, but was obviously not an indicator of the audience’s true interest in the film as demonstrated by performance of the film over the course of the whole weekend.

Pixar's 'Brave' Will Be One of the Summer's Top Performers

Pixar's "Brave"
Why isn't "Brave" showing at Cannes? Because the Scotland-set film will open the Edinburgh Film Festival just after its June 22 stateside release. I saw half an hour of Pixar's 13th film and first fairy tale, which will prove to be yet another top box office performer by summer's end. That's partly because in a summer of sequels and familar brand names, "Brave" will pop as one of the few originals. It's written by Irene Mecchi ("The Lion King") and co-director Brenda Chapman ("The Prince of Egypt"). "John Carter" writer Mark Andrews also co-directs. Another thing: have you noticed how many archers are in movies these days, from Katniss Everdeen to Hawkeye? And Legolas will be back in "The Hobbit," and, eventually, Neytiri in "Avatar 2."

Weekend Box Office: "Men in Black 3" Dethrones 'Avengers," Scores Soft $70 Million, Top Ten Chart

After a 10 year wait since the last installment of the venerable “Men in Black” franchise, Sony’s “Men in Black 3” debuted in the top spot during the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend as the Will Smith-starrer took in an estimated $70 million, which was on the lower side of expectations. Observers had projected that the pricey $250-million picture would open with $70-$80 million domestically. The opening marks the fifth film this year to debut in the top spot for the distributor. (See Top Ten Box Office Chart below.)
“MIB3” debuted in 106 markets internationally and reported an estimated $133.2 million, taking its worldwide total for the weekend to $203.2 million.
But the heavily-promoted Barry Sonnenfeld sci-fi comedy-actioner did something no other film has been able to do in the last four weeks: knock Disney’s “The Avengers” out of the top spot.  The Marvel boxoffice juggernaut was in the second spot with an estimated four-day gross of $46.9 million, advancing its North American cume to a stunning $523.6 million. "Avengers" passed $500 million domestically on Saturday on day 23, beating record-holder "Avatar," which made that milestone in 32 days.
On the worldwide stage “Avengers” has amassed an impressive $1.3 billion so far, marking the fourth highest -grossing film in box office history, behind only “Avatar,” “Titanic,” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.”
Even with the one-two punch from “MIB3” and “The Avengers,” overall, the Memorial Day weekend was down some 31% from the holiday frame last year, with an estimated total for all films of $190 million.  Two sequels had a bigger punch during the four-day Memorial Day holiday in 2011, when “The Hangover Part II” and "Kung Fu Panda 2" racked up $103.4 million and $60.9 million, respectively.
But even with this lower-performing Memorial Day weekend, the year to date total is still running 11% or so ahead of last year at this time. The biggest opening ever during the four-day Memorial Day weekend was recorded in 2007, when "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" pulled in $140 million.

The PG-13 rated “MIB3” was produced by Sony and Hemisphere Media Capital and costars Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin as the younger Tommy Lee.  Smith’s last two big-budget wide releases were “Hancock” in 2008, and “I Am Legend” in 2007, which opened with $62.6 million and $77.2 million, respectively.  “Seven Pounds” was also released in 2008, but that film was a drama with a much lower budget.
“MIB3” was reportedly a troubled production and was shut down for several months for re-writes, although some upbeat critics thought they were worth it.  This time around Agent J goes back in time to the 1960s and the early years of MIB to thwart an assassination attempt on his friend and fellow agent Agent K, which if successful would change history.

Snow White and the Huntsman—movie review

Alex Bailey - Universal Pictures
Sometimes, while I’m watching a bad movie, one burning question arises: “What were they thinking?” That’s what I asked myself while suffering through Snow White and the Huntsman, a putrid, and seemingly endless, retelling of the famous fairy tale. Grim and gruesome, it’s a soul-sucking two-hour-plus endurance test that parents should avoid taking their kids to see except as an extreme form of punishment. I can’t imagine who the filmmakers envisioned as their target audience. Is it a date movie? I don’t think so. It’s really not for children, either, unless they happen to be members of the Addams Family. Why? Early in the story (spoiler alert!) we actually see the evil Queen plunge an enormous dagger into Snow White’s father’s chest. That’s mild compared to the dark doings that follow, from closeups of icky insects and dead birds to a village of women and children cruelly set ablaze.
Charlize Theron plays the ravenous, narcissistic queen without an iota of shading or nuance. It is certainly her loudest performance, but the constant shouting grows tiresome. Kristen Stewart does her best as the pure, innocent Snow White, and Chris Hemsworth is beefy and likable as the huntsman who becomes her protector. If you don’t walk out of the movie (as I was sorely tempted to do) you’ll eventually get to meet the seven dwarfs, who are played, in a bit of movie magic, by such familiar full-sized British actors as Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, and Eddie Marsan. This touch of whimsy is welcome but comes too late to rescue the dark-hearted movie.
The screenplay is credited to three separate writers, which is usually the sign of a long or troubled production. Given the ponderous nature of this film, and its refusal to come to a conclusion, it may simply be that the producers used all of their material. The director, Rupert Sanders, is known for his TV commercials, which should have taught him something about brevity.
Universal Pictures
Incidentally, if you’re wondering why we’re being punished with a parade of revisionist fairy tales, the apparent reason is that Hollywood sensed a hit in the making when Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland went into production, and wound up making a huge pile of money two years ago. That got various producers thinking that the world was eager to see new renderings of Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, and a string of other public-domain fairy tales and fables…but it’s cockeyed logic. I suspect most people went to see Alice because it looked appealing and featured Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. The only positive thought I can muster is that this movie will never eclipse Walt Disney’s animated classic, which has brought joy to millions of viewers for the past 75 years. Disney was brilliant in his juxtaposition of light and dark story elements, but he never let the dark side overtake his films. That’s why we feel a surge of happiness when goodness triumphs at the end. Snow White and the Huntsman simply stops, and I felt nothing except relief.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Not too surprised but another pair of photos have made their way online for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. These photos, in hindsight, should be somewhat expected considering the pubilc knowledge that the Lizard is in this film but it hadn’t dawned on me that they’ll get a shot of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ climbing out of a manhole and Emma ‘Gwen Stacy’ Jones staring wonderfully off camera. For the heck of it I’ll include the synopsis for anyone unaware.

Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Review: Snow White & The Huntsman

Synopsis: Kristen Stewart (the Twilight saga, On the Road) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil Queen Ravenna (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron of Prometheus, Hancock) who is out to destroy her.  But what the wicked ruler never imagined was that the young woman who has escaped her clutches and now threatens her reign has been training in the art of war with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth of Thor, The Avengers) who was dispatched to capture her.

In the opening scene we see a young Snow White along side her father, ruler of the kingdom. During a battle with a foreign invader the army captures an alluring and gorgeous prisoner who marries the king and on their wedding night she kills the king and ascends the throne. A few years later Kristen Stewart is anointed the fairest one of all by “The Mirror” and enrages the evil queen, (perfectly played by an evil Charlize Theron), who wants to destroy her. Snow White escapes from her prison and spends most of the film running from the royal knights who are in pursuit. She trains for battle while a huntsman, (Chris Hemsworth), sets out to find her to kill her. Along the way they encounter the animals of the magical forest as well as a few dwarfs.

  Review: The story of Snow White has been done before. From the Disney cartoon with the dwarfs named Sleepy, Bashful, and Doc to“Mirror, Mirror”  which was the recent adaptation by Tarsem Singh but was a Dopey children’s version seemingly made to make critics Grumpy. We have seen it all. This film, however, which stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hensworth, and Charlize Theron has the feel of an epic war movie and should be quite the big-tent crowd pleaser for both young and old, as well as both men and women.

The weight of ‘Huntsman’ relies on Greig Fraser’s lavish and stunning cinematography and Colleen Atwood’s fanciful and stark costume design. A great example of the cinematography is found during a shot of Ms. Theron hunched over, with her frail boney back facing the camera which happened to be perfectly framed. Rarely can I say that every captured angle from a film engrosses, if not overwhelms, the viewers. Overall the ambitious and ravishing production completely satisfied my expectations. Overindulgence slightly goes into what is effectively ‘overdrive’ with some of the shots and can be compared to ingesting too much sugar. The trailers only shows a fraction of the impressive look to ‘Huntsman’. As Theron ages through the film the makeup work for her face is very realistic and is the complete opposite of Armie Hammers’ laughably bad facial effects in “J Edgar” but this detail is found everywhere including “The Dark Forest” which was effectively eerie

‘Huntsman’ achieves the epic scale on a grandiose level that ‘Mirror, Mirror’ never wanted to be. Every shot is calculated and planned out by use of artistic filmmaking. Story aside ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ reminded me of both ‘Lord of the Rings’, without the ring or Frodo, and ‘Game of Thrones’ without the brutality and the boobs. The acting was better then I anticipated and Chris Hemsworth was perfect for the role and seems to be adjusting as a “man’s man” actor effectively. Charlize Theron encompassed pure evil as a demonic queen who thirsts for power and Kristen Stewart doesn’t ruin the experience. Let me declare that disdain for Ms. Stewart is no excuse for writing off this gloriously entertaining summer film and she actually showed 2 and a half emotions in the role too.
