Fairy Tale Cinema

Wow, so after day on of Fairy Tale Week the overwhelming majority is going with Beauty and the Beast as their favorite Fairy Tale!

I always liked B&B because I also loved to read, but I think that I'd have to go with Snow White as my favorite traditional Fairy Tale. I'm sure part of it is because when I was in, like, 2nd grade I played snow White in a school play and I had the biggest crush on the guy who was the "prince". Of course we were young so instead of kissing me he kicked my foot to make me cough up the apple.

Anyway, these days there are so many awesome twists on Fairy Tales! My favorite FT inspired movie is probably Sydney White. I loved Amanda Bynes. Granted, these days she's making poor choices instead of movies, but what can you do?

I didn't love Mirror, Mirror that came out last year, and I still want to see Snow White and the Huntsman. I haven't heard much about it. (Any opinions?)

Second favorite FT movie was definitely A Cinderella Story. I don't care if it's cheesy. I always liked Hilary Duff, and Chad Michael McMurray is hot. I was all over that movie.

Also, does anyone else remember the made for TV movie with Jennifer Grey an Rob Lowe? It was a Cinderella story set in the 90s fashion world, If the Shoe Fits. I just remembered it today. It was definitely cheesy, horrible effects, but I probably watched it a dozen times when I was a kid.

Maybe it wasn't made for TV, I don't know. It seems like it would have been, but who knows.

Then there was Red Riding Hood. I really liked it. Not a lot of plot, a little creepy, but for some reason I loved it!

As for TV Shows Once Upon a Time is by far the best series I've ever watched. I love the back and forth between the way things were and how they are now. I simply can't wait for the second season!

Best Show Ever!
I haven't gotten into Grimm too much. I liked the few shows I saw ok, I just haven't kept up with it. How about you all?

For some reason I can't think of any other TV Series right now, even though I know there must me more. I would love to hear your favorites! Wanna Join the Fun? Grab the button and link your post!

Okay, how did I forget about Sydney White? I love that movie! I actually liked Mirror Mirror, but I am a Julia Roberts fan/ and I haven't seen Red Riding Hood yet. I am having so much fun with this week so far! Can't wait to see what everyone else picks!

Have you seen the cartoon Hoodwinked? It's the story of LittleRedRidingHood in a way you're never seen and it's HILARIOUS! the first one, not the follow up. Must see it. ;)

I really wanted to like Mirror, Mirror but, I just didn't. I didn't even want to finish watching it but I did!
