the queen, ladies and gentlemen
Regina Spektor’s Ballad of a Politician from her latest album What We Saw From The Cheap Seats is (at least in my head) about the absurdity of acquiring power. The suggestive lines, “shake it, shake it baby” may refer to many things—like shaking hands, or shaking up the system—and its ambiguity is what makes it satiric. “Shake it, shake it baby” makes us think of gyrating bodies (often found in clubs) and other titillating images—but the use of this line in Spektor’s song, backgrounded by eerie piano music, makes us think twice of what Spektor wants it to mean. I guess what I really want to say is… I think it’s cool that Spektor’s sense of humor is dark and apt for her strangely cool music.
Also, this reminds me of Alanis Morissette’s strange version of My Humps. Strange, but the music really gets stuck in your head.
yeah because your faith in God is measured by the amount of alcohol and cigarettes you don’t consume
I’m not a devout Catholic myself but to assume that people who drink and smoke and raise their middle fingers do not believe in God is wrongly judging them
I am not, in any way, defending these people but this kind of hypocrisy goes a long way and it’s the most disgusting
that you don’t drink or smoke or go to parties does not mean you’re automatically a better person than people who do so STOP THINKING THAT WAY
happy Sunday, y’all
this is literally the best video on the internet
omfg I remember when I went through my Jonas Brothers phase omg
exit the womb they said
life would be great they said
Hmmm…I think Stewart was pretty okay. Her lips weren’t as red as blood, though. I remember a friend telling me this movie is “unnecessarily long”, which kind of goes against this article. I think that it cannot be any shorter than that, and if the screen time was longer wouldn’t it be a pain to see K Stew with her “beefcakes” longer than the 1 hour and 57 minutes screentime?
Theron was perfect for me. Sometimes, “half-baked” back stories are intentionally half-baked because the reception of experiences differ from one person to another. What one considers as just an unfortunate accident may drive another mad. Theron’s portrayal of Queen Ravena justifies her evil deeds (well, for me) because apart from her “tragic” childhood experiences, Theron portrays the Queen as mad and obsessed and thirsty.
I do agree with Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin’s performances, though. They were just there for..being the beefcakes that they are. Hemsworth’s performance in this movie is like a toned down version of himself as Thor. It was a pain watching him try to romantically connect with Snow White because with K Stew looks like his daughter….or something. The kiss was expected, which was disappointing because apart from the predictability, it was down right awkward.
Anyway guys. Don’t always blame Kirsten for a bad movie. She’s not the highest paid actress for looking like a dead person on the silver screen. She’s actually trying. I think it was the production in general—from the make-up artists (who failed to emphasize the red lips of Snow White) to the casting directors to the writers—who composed the team that made Snow White and the Huntsman fall short of its potential.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
D: Rupert Sanders
S: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin
Hate her as much as you want, but Kristen Stewart is actually a pretty lady. Is she prettier than Charlize Theron? I say no, but that can be debated. In the world of Rupert Sanders’s Snow White and the Huntsman, Theron’s beauty pales in comparison to Stewart’s, thus making it more obvious that it’s a world of make-believe, a world where everything is possible, and a world where a series of deus ex machina devices can be haphazardly put together and passed off as a great and magical adventure. It isn’t.
Watching Stewart as Snow White tests the limits of one’s patience and concentration. In the movie, Snow White is described as a pure and strong-willed fair lady with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony. Stewart barely embodies any of those traits. Her Snow White looks anemic and is prone to frequent hair touching. Her eyes are almost always blank. They get even blanker in moments of intense emotion that are punctuated by a variation of gasps. Stewart is channeling Bella Swan, this time in a Colleen Atwood gown.
Having a dud playing Snow White, one could still hope for a good adventure. Sadly, that, too, leads to disappointment. Snow White and the Huntsman is too complex for its own good. It has several elements that could have turned it into a great epic, but hurried storytelling eventually causes the movie’s demise. If Sanders or any of the film’s three writers had taken time to let the viewers get accustomed to the characters Snow White meets and all the locations she goes to, then they could have had something memorable. The production values and bit players, though terrific, are easily forgotten.
And then we have Theron. She overplays the evil queen with a tragic backstory that is also half-baked. Though the writers give her a reason to be wicked and powerful, the reason for her unquenchable hate isn’t fully justified. This makes me believe that the queen is mad. And madness does play a big part in Theron’s acting. She embodies it while carrying Stewart’s slack.
As for the love story, not much can be said about it. Stewart has no chemistry whatsoever with her two leading men. Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman and Sam Claflin as her now grown-up childhood friend William only serve as walking beefcakes accompanying Snow White in her quest. Stewart has more chemistry with the movie’s bridge troll than with both of those guys combined.
All in all, though Mirror Mirror had its faults, it ends up becoming the fairer Snow White flick this year.
