Found this on the internet holy land,

“If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.” English Pronunciation

Although it’s not really related to film adaptation, this is an English class, so I thought I’d just leave this here.
Kind of sad that this is all it takes to land in the 90th percentile though.

Directed by: Michael Cohn
Running time: 101 minutes (YouTube video 96 minutes w/o end credits)

Not the film adaptation version I am focusing on, but still relevant as this version is exceptionally violent and filled with adult themes.

A made-for-TV movie, it originally aired on Showtime.

Give it up for the YouTube age, as the movie can be viewed for free. The only cost is tremendous bandwidth usage.

The one major similarity I found with “Snow White and the Huntsman” comes at around 1:13:00, when Snow White bites into the poisoned apple. The character placement is almost identical to the 2012 version, with Snow White on the right and the witch on the left. The worst part however, is when the witch actually asks Snow White, “What’s the matter dear? Cat got your tongue?” Oh god, we didn’t need that.

It is also of note that Gramercy Pictures, the distributor of the film, is partly owned by Universal Pictures, the same studio responsible for “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

I know this isn’t my film adaptation, but it’s definitely one of my favorites.
It’s a bit of a crude excerpt from a great movie, but oddly it’s a very deep moment in the movie with a very salient point.

Part of my final thesis argues that adult themes are a part of a modern person’s education. I hope this will serve as a small appetizer.
Just thought I’d prove that movies are more than just entertainment: it’s education at its best.
