Aaron’s word this week was Mirror.
Yesterday, I was having a bit of a lazy afternoon, not being able to do any of the things I had planned, and trying to get out of a bad mood, so I turned on Netflix and watched Mirror Mirror. It wasn’t planned based on this topic but it fit the theme and I didn’t have any other ideas on what to post so here we go!
I have seen a few Snow White remakes, some that tried to keep to the original story and some that just took the idea and made it fit loosely.
And I have to admit, I did not really enjoy this movie. Have you seen it? If you haven’t, I suggest that you don’t read any further ahead because there are some spoilers.
First of all, who let Lilly Collins do this movie with those eyebrows?! Who does she think she is? Peter Gallagher?
And then the whole “puppy love” thing. I have seen this movie before and I knew that reference in my mind, I just didn’t know that it was linked to this movie. What a ridiculous concept! Who came up with that?!
This clip doesn’t even show the actor licking Julia Robert’s face! That poor actor….
And then there was the wedding at the end and the DRESS. UGH THE DRESS!!
And of course, to cap it all off, this Bollywood sounding song at the very end which really had like no place at all?
Overall this was a bleh movie. And now I remember why I didn’t like it the first time I watched it haha.
