#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Based somewhat more authentically on the Grimm Brothers’ story of a young woman who is unliked by her stepmother, the film includes the talking mirror, a poisoned apple, and some ruffian gold (not diamond) miners (and they aren’t dwarfs or cute). It takes place at the time of the Crusades, and depicts the attitudes of the wealthy and the peasant classes toward one another.
Plot: When young Lili’s mother dies in childbirth, her father remarries Lady Claudia, a woman ruled by an evil mirror with the power to make her queen of all living things. After escaping an attempt on her life, Lili finds herself lost in a dark forest, where living happily ever after seems unlikely.

Flawed, but still excellent
When I picked this up, I wasn’t sure I wanted to see it. I thought it looked kind of interesting, and I guess for five bucks in Wal-Mart, why not? I tend to like bad B movies, so what’s the harm?
And despite my initial misgivings, I thought it was excellent.
The story wavered from the Grimm’s version, but that’s part of what makes it original. The portrayal of the era wasn’t perfect, but then that didn’t hurt the story much either. I thought the acting was done pretty well, especially Sigourney Weaver. She worked well with a character that was pretty weirdly written. I loved her as the old woman in the forest and in the final scene. Very eerie. Very cool.
The scenes with Lilliana and the dwarfs were a bit choppy in parts–first Will threatened her, then he saved her, then he yelled at her, then…yadda yadda yadda–but Monica Keena played the sheltered damsel well and Gil Bellows was good at the whole “tortured but sincere” act. I was definitely left imagining what the screenwriters should have put in the holes, but all in all I thought that storyline was sweet.
Definitely not a movie for children, but then the title and rating suggest so. Again, some of the story needed to be filled out and explained more, but in total, I loved it. Creepy and cool and fun.
A not-so-snowy and not-so-white version of the classic “unfair”-y tale.
This was a well done performance of the Grimm story, with Sigourney Weaver cast perfectly as the “Evil Witch Queen” character — she makes the movie. The story flows well and doesn’t lose you in faces, places and details. Nor does it ever get cutesy or sweet…there’s no Disney-esque here! This *is* what happened to “Snow White” (and, there *was* one dwarf in the seven men she met; so that’s O.K.!).
