The Huntsman: Winter’s War

BeFunky Collage

When I first saw the trailer for this film, I was skeptic about there being a sequel/ prequel for Snow White and the Huntsman. That film was good on its own but isn’t it just trying to make more money in a franchise now. The more I saw the trailer and learned (as much as you can from a trailer) the premise of the story, the more I got interested in what they were going to tell.

Bastille Day

I only learned about this film because ever since it was announced to play in Belgian theatres, a friend of mine asked if we could go see it. It took us some time to finally find a moment that we both had time to see it. A few weeks after the release it was only playing as the last film on Saturdays and some other days during the week. So we thought up the plan to see a double feature. First, finally go see Huntsman: Winter’s war and because we were already at the cinema at that moment just see it then.

The wait began… I was hoping that they would show it soon after the celebration of 400 years Shakespeare but still one month of waiting had to be done.

Alice: Through the looking glass

Ever since I was little and saw Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, I have been intrigued by the word of Wonder in which she lands.  After having read both books by Lewis Caroll, seen many adaptations of them, heard the Jabberwocky read by Benedict Cumberbatch, when Tim Burton announced he was going to make an Alice in Wonderland film I was delighted. Tim Burton is the only director that I would trust with a trippy scene as is the story of Alice.

When later, and more recently, it was announced that there was going to be a second film, I was wondering what they were going to put in the story since the first film already covered most of both books.
