The Beauty of Sanctuary (Snow White and the Huntsman)

If you haven’t seen Snow White and the Huntsman yet, and you’re into fantasy, put down whatever device you’re reading this on, and scoot on out right now to find a showing. I saw it over the weekend, and I’m still thinking about it.

This movie is full of wonder. The portrayals of the Dark Forest, and later its antithesis Sanctuary, are stunning. In general, the effects make me glad to live in this day and age, when fantasies really can be brought to life for viewers. It also gives me great appreciation for the visual arts, movies in particular, and all of the work that goes in to developing the details that make a movie like this really sing.

In case I haven’t sold you, check out this preview…
