I finally saw Snow White and the Huntsman (going to the movies is tricky when one has a toddler) and I loved it!

It was dark and epic and inventive and made me feel all the intensity fairy tales made me feel when I was a child. Also, the older I get, the more I like women-centric heroic narratives and this was that rare beast - a mythic adventure tale with a heroine and a villainess at the center. So good.

You know me, I am the ultimate shipper. Yet I shocked myself by being happy Snow (btw, I love KS in this - Twilight is forgiven) ended up with neither William nor the Huntsman - she needs to experience the world and normal life and not just jail and hair-raising survival adventure before she embarks on a relationship. The Huntsman (mmmm, Chris Hemsworth makes me weak at the knees) is still mourning his wife and seeing her in Snow, and William (whom I shocked myself by adoring) hasn't had the chance to get to know her yet - his feelings are childhood attachment and guilt. Sp yes, breathing space for everyone.

Please tell me there will be a sequel? And a director's cut?

And now I crave a movie about Joan of Arc.

Mr. Mousie and I went to see In Time yesterday and both enjoyed it (I thought it would be an awesome pilot for a cool scifi show a la Dark Angel. *sigh*)

But this is not the post about that. This is the post about one of the movie trailers in front of it - The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. First off, Channing Tatum does ridiculous things to my hormones - I like my guys slightly beefy/jocky-looking and mmmm. More importantly, it's as if someone decided that John Abraham/Vidya Balan subplot in Salaam-e-Ishq deserved its own movie.

!!!!!!!

If you are not a Bollywooder, basically the plot is that Channing and Rachel are newly-weds, they get into a car accident and she forgets him entirely and he has to get her to fall in love with him again. It looks beyond swoony:



Speaking of men who make me non-verbal, Thor's Chris Hemsworth is very high on the list. So I will check out Snow White and the Huntsman just for him. Or for him and a medieval setting as I am a sucker for the same. Sadly, Kristin Stewart cannot act to save her life and am a little dubious as to how many Snow White stories do we need anyway - Once Upon a Time is currently filling my quota.



Now, too bad the huntsman and Snow White are unlikely to hook up :P

Trailer does look gorgeous though - I have never been able to refuse a medieval setting - too few movies are set then.
