I am a huge fan of the movies Twilight and Thor, so when I had the opportunity to review this movie I jumped at the chance. From start to finish this movie was filled with jam packed action, it never stopped and that's something I loved. I also loved how they still kept all the classic plots from the movie we all love, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs and how they added in making Snow White a warrior fighting to save her kingdom, which was great, I love movies with strong strong leading lady. This is a great tale with lots of twists and one that I'm sure my family and I will be watching over and over again. The blu-ray's high definition picture quality along with our surround sound system made it feel like we were actually at the movies. I love how the disc comes with a DVD and you can also get Ultraviolet as well.

Thanks to characters like William (Sam Claflin) in Snow White and the Huntsman (premiering on Blu-ray Sept. 11), Hawkeye in The Avengers and Katniss The Hunger Games, archery has been increasing in popularity. Take a look at these recent cinematic archers that join William in his love of the bow and arrow.
Hawkeye, The Avengers
Clint Barton, AKA “Hawkeye,” has no superhuman powers like his Avengers teammate, Captain America or superior technology like Ironman, but he is unbeatable in combat and a master archer to boot. And his arrows aren’t just ordinary arrows. Among them are tricksters with flares, explosives, electrical discharge, suction cups, smoke bombs, boomerangs and more.
Legolas, Lord of the Rings
Legolas, an elf of the Woodland Realm and one of nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring, might be the quickest and fastest archer the big screen has ever seen. Of course, while his keen eyes, ears and fighting skills are of immense use to the Fellowship, his friendship and loyalty make him even more important.
Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games
Katniss hails from District 12, a coal-mining district that is the poorest district in the dystopian fictional nation of Panem. Outside the district’s borders, Katniss and her best friend, Gale, hone their hunting skills to keep their families fed. Her top-notch skill and determination are ultimately what gets her through the Hunger Games as a victor.
As the daughter of Eytukan, the leader of the Omaticaya, it is not surprising that Neytiri knows how to use a bow and arrow. She begrudgingly takes on educating Jake Sully after her mother, a spiritual leader, deems him worthy. And even though she at first thinks him a fool, she eventually falls for him and together, they save Pandora from a human threat.
William, son of Duke Hammond, is traumatized as a child when he is unable to rescue Snow White from the evil queen and her maniacal brother. But as an adult – now an expert bowman – he is able to infiltrate a group of henchmen trying to find Snow White, who’s escaped, so he can successfully rescue her and help her reclaim the throne that is rightfully hers.
