I was so excited to see Mirror, Mirror when it came out at the theatres. I love fantasy movies and the recent push to re-interpret my childhood fairytales both on the small and big screen have really suited me as a viewer. I was interested to see how Julia Roberts would handle the bad-guy role. But most of all, I knew this was going to be a treat for my eyes. All the trailers revealed a movie rich in colour and high quality cinematography. I was not disappointed.

All of the costumes are over the top, but gorgeous and fitting of the fairytale world. The heroine, Snow, is played by Lily Collins (apparently Phil Collins had something to do with her existence). She was excellent in the role. I found her Snow to be soft, friendly, but also gutsy with moxy and intelligence. All those things that a princess ought to be, especially as a role model to young girls today. Julia Roberts was not up to the role of baddie. Far too many years playing the nice and dependable sweetheart of America/girl next door. I just couldn't get behind her evil queen. She delivered the lines, but I didn't see the evil in her eyes. Not like Charlize Theron managed when she played a similar role in Snow White and The Huntsman.

I loved the interpretation of the dwarfs in this film. It has comedy and romance. It has some scary parts too. My 5 year old was bored to tears though. It was not the movie for her and she made me wish I had left her at home! I would recommend that ages 7+ would be more thrilled by the movie and better able to sit still.
