  Critics are panning it as boring, but with costumes like this..

 I'd go to see it in a minute.

I'm hoping to bring my 6 year old out to see this!  More for me as an excuse to see it, but she'll love it just because it's Snow White.  =)

I seldom trust the critics.  I have laughed my tush off at movies they hated.

  I thought Burton's Alice in Wonderland was seriously boring, but I liked the imagery.  I'll be seeing this too.

I want to see it mainly for the costumes
hence I will wait for the dvd.
The more previews I see the less interesting it seems to be.

Snow White and the Huntsman on the other hand looks fantastic in every aspect

I won't depend to much on my opinion.  I have childish and bad taste in literature.  My wife and I sum up the classic grail of fantasy, the Lord of the Rings, as -

They came
They sang
He tripped
They won

Well just got home.

The fashions were varied and many.  From Louis XVI court to Ren Pirate Wench.

The movie was great.  Very sarcastic and not Disney.  This Snow White did not run/run/run/pose here.  Lot of topless shots in this movie, of the guys.

AuntieGiggles and I went yesterday with my eldest daughter (6 1/2 years old) and we all enjoyed it.  I loved the vast array of costume styles.  I LOVED that this was a VERY different "Snow White" story.  The movie was cute.  I'll buy it when it comes out on DVD but it isn't a movie I'll rave about to my friends.  My daughter loved it, of course.  =)

I saw this today. It is a visually fantastic film, and not just the costumes. I expected nothing less from Tarsem Singh, who also directed Immortals, The Cell, and The Fall, all great looking and interesting movies.
But for all of Singh's visual skills, sometimes he seems to have some problems with storytelling, and there's a little of that going on in Mirror Mirror, it sort of hunts for focus between the Queen and Snow a little, and sometimes the visuals overwhelm the actors. But overall I found it to be a pretty funny and original take on the Snow White tale.

My wife & I saw this last weekend.  It was good!  It had just enough swordplay, dwarves (not the typical ones from a Snow White story) & magic to keep me entertained.  Snow White is played by none other than Phil Collins' daughter.  You can see the resemblance around her eyes.
