- Classic Snow White. Making the Huntsman do ALL the work.
Snow White finally figures out how to escape her prison cell after a pair of magical birds show her this nail. This almost-woman requires the assistance of magical birds to escape. And trust me, this isn’t the last time in the movie that she needs avian assistance. After she escapes into the dark forest, she requires help from the huntsman who was sent into the dark forest to track her down and capture her for Raveena. Oh, did I mention Raveena kicks ass at delegating?!
This supposed hero can’t even get through the dark forest on her own. When the Huntsman finally gets her out of there alive, she requires the assistance of dwarves on the next leg of her journey. While the movie keeps telling us over and over that Snow White’s the great white hope to save the kingdom, I struggled to believe it.
Is it not the Huntsman who just saved her life TWICE? Is it not the dwarves who help her escape into the enchanted forest? If the girl can’t even find her way to an enchanted fairy forest without help, how does anyone except her to defeat a magical enemy. But still, they all ooo and aww over the girl and act like she’s their savior.
Here’s a hint men of re-imagined fairy tales: if your savior gets tricked by the evil witch the second you take a nap, she’s not a savior. She’s a moron. These 10 men can’t even get some shut-eye without her causing unnecesary drama.
In the last ten minutes she finally wakes up from her imprisonment stupor and gets really into getting revenge on Raveena. Not for herself of course, but for her murdered father. HELLO SNOW WHITE! How about avenging your own imprisonment and slave-like treatment. Dad’s dead. He died quite some time ago and he died because he married an evil enchantress one day after meeting her. That’s what he gets for being horny.
Snow’s imprisoned for no reason and she should be fighting Raveena for that. Not for her horndog dead dad. By the time she kills Raveena, it’s so disappointing. She doesn’t even deliver a fuck you to the woman who ruined her entire life. And then for her barely heroic deeds (and getting tons of soldiers killed alongside her in battle), she’s crowned queen.
Moral of the story: make men around you do your bidding and you get a crown.
Let’s remake this movie for the third time this year and make sure Raveena survives. We need more strong women in power. Women who know what they want and do whatever it takes to get it.
