what's up with snow white?

i mean in the same year we have a tv show (once upon a time) and two movies (Mirror-mirron and snow white and the hunter) to be world wide broadcasted.






may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: what's up with snow white?

Lack of imagination is what happened. Holywood has overused every idea and now they are stuck to never-ending sequels or remakes.

It's so predictable, after milking up kids Tv series (Transformers, Gi Joe) they started making films out of fairytales with a dark twist (Red Riding Hood, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White). Cinderella is next

Snow White has even gone into the porn remake realm with Snow White's Cherry and its Seven Bumps.

Re: what's up with snow white?

The one with Charlize Theron looks great, I just hope the bitch from Twilight doesn't screw it.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: what's up with snow white?

I wouldnt say its lack of imagination. There are creative writers out there. It's ego and not wanting to use the talent. Which means Laziness and quick cash. Thats Hollywood for yah!

I'm waiting on Wonder Woman to come out. And she better be a good one!!!

Wonder Woman? How could anyone be taken seriously with that costume? It would be an even bigger shitfest than Halle Berry's Catwoman

Re: what's up with snow white?

Its just money again, different networks fighting with each other. You can see they are making similar movies in every year, this is just looks too blatant. Producers just thinking "hey, they are making a movie about two friends having sex! We should totally make our versions too!", and etc...

Also these Snow White adaptations look very different, so i dont think it hurts anybody.

Re: what's up with snow white?

And there is another version to be released this year:
A black and white silent Spanish movie.
With Maribel Verdú as the evil Queen.

Re: what's up with snow white?

There are several reasons in my Opinion.

- The biggest of course is that the movie industry is in a slow decline. As their quality has declined so has their inventiveness. Also as sales decline it becomes riskier to try new things instead of rehashing older but lower risk movies.

- A more indirect reason is due to the target audiences changing. Movies like Harry Potter and Twilight show that there is a very large market for teenage movie viewers. As less and less adults go out to watch movies the industry increasingly starts to cater to the audience that still goes to watch... kids and teenagers.

- Another reason is because of the increasing competition the movie industry faces from piracy and also competing forms of entertainment. 50 years ago there was radio, phone, tv, and movies. Now there are cellphones, computers, the internet, ridiculous amounts of TV channels, video game consoles, etc which dilutes the Movie industries power.

I loved Catwoman, I never saw what was wrong with it.

Re: what's up with snow white?

Helen..ewe..I hated that movie. Halle Berry is no catwoman. It was a badly written movie. Just a piece of crap imho. Wonder Woman could be a great superheroine film if they do it right. Bat Man,Spider Man..why not WONDER WOMAN???The great Amazon with her invisible jet. They did all the underoos but the bestt one..:_(

Re: what's up with snow white?

You can't beat Disney's. My favourite film when I was a kid - and no, not at the time of its original release! I was scared witless when I saw the evil witch!
