The Huntsman: Winter’s War Blu-ray Review

The Huntsman: Winter's War Blu-ray

Snow White and the Huntsman (giveaway) isn’t just a prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. It’s also a sequel. Odd, but true. Winter’s War starts off with a story about Ravenna and her sister, Freya. Then the story jumps forward seven years to a time after the Snow White movie. Some of the characters in Snow White are in Winter’s War. But this time around, there seems to be less sorcery. There is plenty of action in the story, but the movie is more of an adventure story about The Huntsman and the love of his life. The Huntsman: Winter’s War is available now on Digital HD and will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 23rd.

Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman – Charlize Theron is the fairest one of all

Snow White and the Huntsman ~ Universal Pictures

I saw a movie screening of Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal Pictures) earlier in the week. The film is another take on the Snow White fairy tale. This version of Snow White is darker and slower than the Snow White movie released earlier in the year (Mirror Mirror). At times, the film reminded me of Lord of the Rings. BTW, the special effects in this movie are amazing. Snow White and the Huntsman [Facebook | Twitter] opens in theaters today. Below is a quick summary of the film. Continue reading for the full movie review of Snow White and the Huntsman.
