Dwarf (Level 2): Read/watch any combination of original tales, modern tales, or films, resulting in a total of 6 selections.
Movie - Snow White and the Huntsman. I don't know what other people are saying about this movie but I did not enjoy it in the least. It was extremely slow moving. There wasn't much of a plot. Visually, it was stunning. However, going to the movies these days is expensive and I regret the money spent on this. My suggestion is this, if you are on the fence about going just wait for the DVD.
