Mirror Mirror

After watching the drama „Snow White and the Huntsman”, I wanted to see the funny version called „Mirror Mirror” too. I didn’t regret it, because I didn’t get bored a second and this because of the cast: Julia Roberts (Valentine’s Day, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Eleven and Friends), Lily Collins (Abduction and 90210) and beautiful Armie Hammer (J. Edgar, The Social Network and Gossip Girl) who played the prince. I loved two scenes: the fight between Snow White and the prince and the one with the kiss (unusual because Snow White’s kiss healed the prince and not the opposite). I think everybody should watch this film, because it’s very nice!

With the support of her new friends, she roars into action to reclaim her birthright and win back her Prince in this magical adventure comedy that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over.

North & South (2004)

I’ve always loved BBC films. Be it movies, miniseries or serials, they are always beautiful, deep and sensitive. Pride and Prejudice (1995) with Colin Firth was the first miniseries with the same title as a novel which I loved. I’ve watched it three times. Then I watched Robin Hood (2006) where I’ve „met” Richard Armitage. He played there the villain, sir Guy of Gisborne, but believe me: he can play magnificently a romantic man as well. You can check this by watching „North & South”, a story very similar to Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It takes four hours, has an amazing soundtrack and makes you cry for sure. Margaret Hale moves with her family in Milton and meets John Thornton. Though she thinks very poor of him, Thornton falls in love with Margaret, because she’s different from the other women around him. When he proposes to her, she refuses him, as finally to realize that, despite all, she cares for him too.

storyline via imdb: This series operates on many levels. At the heart of the series is the tempestuous relationship between Margaret Hale, a young woman from a southern middle class family who finds herself uprooted to the north, and John Thornton, a formerly poverty-stricken cotton mill owner terrified of losing the viability of his business. Around them are class struggles between the workers and mill owners and ideological struggles between the industrial North and the agrarian South. After moving North, Margaret’s father befriends his student Mr. Thornton. Margaret has already formed her opinion of Mr. Thornton independently after seeing him treat his workers harshly. As the series progresses, she and we the audience begin to learn that his strict treatment is due to an overarching concern for his mill and by extension, his employees. John Thornton, on the other hand, is attracted to Margaret’s independence and position in society as a well-educated Southerner…
