Ravenna imprisons Snow White on the Northern Tower of the castle while William, his father The Duke and a few survivors escape from the castle. has a RELATIONSHIP with you, and presumably has some idea of whether or not you would mind if they kissed you. If your beloved is, for some reason, unable to make a choice (because they’re asleep/unconscious/dead) well, that’s unfortunate. A few minutes later, Snow White wakes up – presumably resurrected by the Huntsman’s kiss – and proceeds to defeat the Evil Queen. I enjoy ranting about things. It belonged to the Evil Queen, who gives it to the Huntsman to put Snow White's heart in after he kills her. Because even though I know my brother is smart, and respectful, and he cares about consent and about people’s boundaries…. And then I watched the movie, and knew I had to write a review. Because it’s CREEPY, and it’s DIFFERENT, and most people would not think that was okay. What a load of nonsense. I definitely recommend it. Then they die going “aww, shit, if I’d known earlier”… “Lips red as blood, hair black as night, bring me your heart, my dear, dear Snow White.” Sleep is good]. No idea who it is, though. A point that is buttressed by the moment two scenes later when the Ruggedly Handsome Huntsman approaches the Fetching in Mail SW, and SW is so flustered from her recent orgasm that she is struck speechless. 1: The Faust Act, Book Review: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice Manga. PEOPLE ACTUALLY ACT THIS WAY. We’re also obviously meant to fear that he will assault or rape Snow White. Second, Snow White seemed to be Christian at the start of the movie. Also, I will FIGHT YOU for Charlize Theron’s clothes. Ravenna demands Snow White be brought before her but Snow White manages to escape. I agree with you about the Huntsman. Anyways. Book reviews! I mean, this comment was… okay… but it was straight out of derailing for dummies. Pro-tip #6: Just because you are conventionally attractive and/or Young and/or Not Evil, does not mean you are unable to sexually assault someone. In the context of the movie, it’s the most consensual kiss, in that both women are consenting to kiss someone… but that’s not saying much. No. Moving right along! There is a pattern of abuse in this movie, I am pointing it out. On the other hand, I’ve never had a problem considering what guys want. The character seems to borrow much from Joan of Arc to the point that one might wonder if she wondered into the wrong film. A week after I saw the movie, however, I was reading Batwoman: Elegy (which HOLY SHIT IS INCREDIBLE) when I sat bolt-upright in my bed and exclaimed: “Whoa! If I was dead or dying, someone who is grief-stricken kissing me is so unoffensive as to be laughable. I’m not saying YOU should mind. There are plenty of feminists who are working on “important” issues like poverty, rape and equal wages. Based on the popular fairytale ''Snow White'' comes the originally titled ''Snow White....and The Huntsman'' ,an epic fantasy film starring teen favourites Kristen Stewart (of Twilight fame) and Chris Hemsworth (of Thor/Avengers fame). And that, dear reader, is when I got angry enough to write a blog post. She takes over the Kingdom, draining the land until there’s barely anything left, and locks Snow White away. Queen Ravenna brings a Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) that misses his wife and she promises to bring her back to life provided he catches Snow White to her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman who was dispatched to kill her. I mean, it sort of does, in that the Queen clearly represents corruption and sexual decadence (and she’s also been raped), and the princess is virginal and pure, so there’s a whole idea of passivity = goodness (where Snow never argues over the non-consensual kisses, the Queen is all “you raped me? Because that’s just the way things are. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. Just sayin. Thank God for her beauty. Why spare her?? Calling it “non-consensual” or, as the person above me phrased it, “sexual assault” is equally ridiculous. First, she apparently heals the land. Why can’t you look at the bigger picture instead of finding one thing and blowing it out of proportion. I don’t know, maybe I’m just an idiot. If she can be an actress, so can my refrigerator. by the Brothers Grimm. Don’t kiss people you’re interested in. I’m not necessarily opposed, but… that was creepy. And that is categorically not what I am talking about in this post. If you look closely, he`s actually kissing the ring, and not her, which makes it even better. So it’s totally okay! DISHONOR ON MY COW? Seriously? This scene is, in almost every way, a mirror to William and the Huntsman kissing Snow White. And that, of course, brings us to Snow White. You shall not have them! Frankly, the movie would have been a lot better if, when Raveena and Snow White kissed (in a consensual manner), the two of them realized they were secretly attracted to each other. Too many feminists get all pissed off when women don’t behave exactly the way you think they should behave. Metacritic Reviews. pain! Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. No matter how much you long/love/lust for them. She takes over the Kingdom, draining the land until there’s barely anything left, and locks Snow White away. I do hope your prediction of the zombie apocalypse with girl-on-girl-fur-burger-throw-down comes true. If it wasn’t the norm, more reviewers would have remarked on it. Pro-tip #5: If you assume that being conventionally attractive/young/not evil means that everyone automatically WANTS to kiss you, and so therefore they have obviously consented, and so therefore it is okay for you to kiss them when they are unconscious/dead, you are doing it wrong. Neither William nor the Huntsman have any idea of whether Snow White has romantic (or sexual) feelings towards them. I never called it misogynistic. Because every girl wants to hear “you’re exactly like my dead wife! ( Log Out / the Huntsman is ruggedly handsome! The only hint of real strength comes with Snow White's battle speech which would've been fantastic except for the utter lack of build up to this newfound strength of character. I would have kept going until Z, but then I remembered that there were roses to smell, and pointless feminist rants to write, so I stopped]. If both people approve this action without coercion it is consensual. Random Guy (or Girl) 101 does not. It’s a post about consent issues and female desire. So I suppose my question is: Why are you so angry? Then they would hash out their differences over a marriage contract; we’d get a kingdom ruled by two badass queens in a lesbian relationship, and William and the Huntsman could go… take a hike. Sorry if any of it is a repeat. Forged by the fierce fire that I know is in your hearts! There’s also basically no chemistry between anybody, so even if you set aside the creepy wife bit, the kiss just feels hollow. Really. I mean, Raveena has power, but she’s evil (and why is she evil? The accent was a bit strange but the rest was convincing. You don’t have to read it. It moves the viewer. I do not speak for feminism. ONWARDS! The scene where he shows emotion and has tears in his eyes was a surprise. Kitten pictures. I dislike labeling myself as feminist in particular because of crap like this. OH MY GOD I GET IT, You’re a CONCERN TROLL! I enjoyed the how well Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron portrayed their roles and drew me into the story. I didn’t say I was angry about this… ARE YOU A MIND READER? The huntsman’s kiss couldn’t have been done without – it’s part of the original fairy tale (well its meant to be the prince but someone has to kiss her while she’s asleep) and had it been missing there would have been complaints (I would have hated the film had it left something so important out).
