Dark Shadows (2012) - 8/10
Really fun. I've never seen the show it was based on, so I can't comment on how well it was adapted, but I love Tim Burton's style and I always enjoy his films.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) - 6.5/10
Entertaining. Well directed and (mostly) well acted, but the dialogue felt quite awkward in places. I really liked Charlize Theron's Evil Queen.

Gave Kristen Stewart a fair chance as I've only seen her as Bella (who is such an awfully written character), but I wasn't overly impressed. She was still quite bland, although she did better as "Action" Snow White than "Innocent" Snow White. Once again, I'm not sure if it was the one-dimensional writing that let her down, or if she's just not a great actress.

Shame about the affair, because if there is a sequel they've lost a pretty good director and kept an actress who's passable at best, IMO.
