Well, neither of them were very good, but out of the two, I'd say that Mirror Mirror was the LEAST awful of the two. At least in Mirror Mirror, I felt a LITTLE bit entertained.
But Snow White and the Huntsman? One of the most mediocre films I've seen in quite a while. I knew it wasn't going to be good, but at the very least, I thought I would be ENTERTAINED. But I WASN'T, in fact I was BORED which is the biggest crime a film can commit. Yes, even with the hotness that is Thor, I was BORED by Snow White and the Huntsman. (And just an FYI, I saw Snow White and the Huntsman first in theaters and I later saw Mirror Mirror on DVD).
Definitely not the only one. I didn't like Snow White and the Huntsman - should've just been called The Huntsman or hell just about Ms. Evil Queen. :/ I get they wanted Snow White to be bland - but crap man they got what they wanted and more. Loved Mirror Mirror though~! <3 That was a good one
I really thought I would like Mirror more, but I don't know what happened with that movie... at one point it lost its mood, it stopped being funny and it definitely wasn't scarry or thrilling. Something is missing in that one....... On the other hand 'Snowhite and the Huntsman' did what we expected from it - it was epic, beautiful, with great effects and actually pretty good performances. Also I think the plot was quite good for that kind of movie ;] And btw I agree with =Tianithen, 'Snow White a Tale of Terror' is really solid adaptation of the story... very dark and it has Sigourney Weaver, which can't be bad :]
Can't really compare the two, I feel.. I've seen both. I suppose Snow White and the Huntsman is more mature, better graphics, has a further sense of depth (perhaps?) but.. yeah, they're produced to two different markets, no?
I liked both pretty much equally. They both had their merits and flaws.
I actually didn't see the Huntsman and didn't really care to either. But I did see Mirror, Mirror, and although it has some flaws, I really enjoyed it a lot. I thought it was cute, Lily Collins was splendid, and some of the elements were really cool, like the other side of the mirror and the marionettes. Also, the outfits were beautiful.
