Netflixin': Snow White: A Tale of Terror

M. and I watched this flick the other night. It definitely leans closer to the original fairy tale as opposed to the Disney version; M. pointed out a lot of details there for me. However, as a movie, it's kind of bland. Like Sam Neill bland. Sigourney Weaver does an excellent job, actually, bringing a lot more to the wicked stepmother role than I expected. But the film never really delivers on the 'tale of terror' part of the title, and doesn't give her performance the right stage. Its made-for-TV roots shine through in a couple places. It's funny how you never notice lighting in a movie until you hit on an example where it's not quite done well. Anyways. Amusing fare for mature fairy tale fans, but don't expect much.
