    What did you think of Snow White? I was excited to see Kristen Stewart outside of the Twilight franchise but the movie as a whole was disappointing. It was…I don’t know. Shallow?

      Agreed, Kayla. It was beautiful to look at – a real triumph of cinematography and production design – but the script was weak and I thought Stewart made a bland action heroine. In terms of acting chops, Charlize Theron blew her off the screen, which made me want to root for the wicked queen!

      I’m really looking forward to seeing Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis.
