Snow White and the Huntsman (Blu-ray release 2012-9-11), as a dark version of the classic Snow White fairytale, is much better than the disastrous Mirror Mirror (2012).  Although the story is not without flaws – the (lack of) romantic aspect seems inconsistent with the climax, the fantasy world and the battles are well done.  One scene of the story looks like a straight copy of もののけ姫 (Princess Mononoke) (1997).
