A Down and Dirty Hero
It’s raining here in the Pac NW – like crazy. So, besides writing, we’ve taken in a few movies lately. I just went to Snow White and the Huntsman, and I enjoyed it. Okay, I really enjoyed watching Chris Hemsworth in down and dirty warrior mode. And Charlize Theron was amazing as the villain. There’s nothing I love more than a good villain—well, except for a down and dirty hero. 🙂
But I did get to thinking…how has this story survived for so long? The original Snow White was a German fairy tale from the early 1800s! And yet, it’s on the silver screen yet again. Is it the symbolism? The red of blood and the white purity of snow? Or is it the everlasting theme of good vs. evil? Or is it the hero/heroine’s quest?
Maybe it’s all of the above. You have large themes, horrible consequences if things go wrong…and hope. And, good wins over evil.
I mean, really. What more could we want?
