Watching a fairy tale … duh … and in the end it was something as “The Lord of the Rings” with 7 funny, combative dwarfs. I thought it was a beautifully executed fantasy story, with a rather Gothic kind of atmosphere and with fun action scenes.
A funny quote I’ve read on IMDB : “Kristen Stewart is like my refrigerator, no matter what I put in it (milk, soda, eggs, vegetables, meat), it is and it will always be a refrigerator. And so is she.” And yes that’s true: she shows almost no emotion and I’m convinced she dips her face in starch before walking onto the set.
Second disappointment : I need to see this movie once again but then with subtitles because of these dwarfs with their damn Irish / Scottish accent. It was so difficult to understand.Anyway, I wasn’t bored while watching this entertaining tale.
And I’m looking forward to the sequel!
