Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Cast: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett-Smith, David Schwimmer
Director: Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath, Conrad Vernon

It’s messy, it’s crazy, it’s fun. It’s the perfect movie to wrap up the trilogy. Let’s just hope a fourth one isn’t on the works. While the first two movies were all set in Africa, this one travels to Europe and adds a circus to the mix. While it’s not my favorite in the trilogy, I like it the right amount to not watch it again for a very long time. 

Snow White and the Huntsman

Cast: Kirsten Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin
Director: Rupert Sanders

Snow White and the Huntsman is a darker take on the familiar Disney adaptation that we all know. It rivaled fellow fantasy adaptation Mirror Mirror, which was released earlier this year. Because I like Kirsten Stewart more than Lily Collins, and prefer Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, I decided to go see this one before seeing the former. Based on the pilot, trailer, advertising and the cast, I assumed that this would be the better movie. Unfortunately, I should have gone to this without much expectation as I ended up disappointed. Oh, to be fooled by advertising.
