CRAPPILY EVER AFTER | After an enticing promotional campaign that showcased its gorgeously gloomy fairy-tale milieu and Charlize Theron’s deliciously witchy performance as a vampy villainess, SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN turns out to be the kind of film that only a really wicked stepmother could love. On a crushingly Grimm episode of Scorncast, Jasper and co-host Ghostface Millah examine just about everything that’s wrong with this botched hybrid of mucky adventure and ethereal fantasy: unfortunate hairstyles, speechless heroines, puckering produce, and the dickish prescience of magic mirrors. Plus: Ghostface issues a formal apology to Lily Collins, and Jasper explains how to triumph over cursed fruit in just one clumsy step. (Literally.) Click the Scorncast banner below to listen!
