Snow White and the Huntsman: under-rated high fantasy ★★★★☆ 

Snow White and the Huntsman is an under-rated high fantasy interpretation of the fairy tale. It’s certainly not a perfect movie, but just as certainly it is better than most of its ratings and reviews. It’s extremely creative, and worthwhile for any fantasy fan. Despite the success of Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, high fantasy remains a generally neglected genre, difficult to do and often polluted with cuteness and silliness (even Jackson did it, particularly in Return of the King). Of course, Game of Thrones has been very satisfying in this regard — probably the most serious high fantasy yet produced.
