~ Review: Mad As A Hatter ~

Once upon a time…

Jefferson is playing hide and seek with his daughter, Grace. They head back to their cottage, when they noticed Regina’s carriage. Grace asks her father if he knows her, and Jefferson says no. He tells Grace to hide in the woods until he comes and finds her. Jefferson goes in and clearly he and Regina know each other. Regina needs his help, but Jefferson says he doesn’t do that kind of work anymore. Regina tries to get him to do it by promising him and his daughter a lifetime of luxury and comfort. But Jefferson still says no. Regina tells him she needs his special skills to get her somewhere, somewhere he has been before. She hands him a paper, and Jefferson asks what she possible could want from that certain place; something was taken from her and she wants it back. However Jefferson still says no and Regina understands. Yeah right. 

Mirror, Mirror How Do You Like My New Nose?
The next day, Jefferson and Grace are at the village market. Grace sees the toy cart and finds a rabbit. She asks her father if she could have it so he can join them for tea, and Jefferson couldn’t resist saying no. However he doesn’t have enough money to pay for it, and the old lady says she can’t sell the rabbit for any less. Grace says it’s OK, but Jefferson will not take no for an answer. Grace insists she doesn’t need it and they both leave. After they leave, the old lady goes to the back where a mirror is. The Magic Mirror appears and tells the old lady that Grace still should have had the toy, but the old lady replied that would have been no fun, and reveals herself to be Regina in disguise. That is cruel. I have to admit I’m a tiny bit disappointed that we saw the EQ in her infamous disguise already. I was hoping that could have been saved for when she tries to get Snow to eat the poison apple. It would have at least had that element of surprise. Oh well...

Back at their house, Jefferson makes a rabbit for Grace and apologizes for it not being the same one she wanted, but Grace loves it. Love the expression Jefferson had when Grace said that. They sit down to have their tea party. But Jefferson has decided to help Regina one more time and tells Grace she needs to go to their neighbor’s house for the rest of the day.  Grace wants to come, but Jefferson tells her he is not going to work in the woods. Grace then pleads her father not to do whatever is Regina wants him to do. But Jefferson tells her he wants to give her everything she wants, but Grace says all she wants is her father. However Jefferson’s mind is made up and Grace makes him promise that he returns in time for their tea party. Jefferson promises. Sweet, but sad scene. After Grace leaves, Jefferson opens up a trunk and takes out a hat shaped box.

~ Review: Darth Snow White ~

Once upon a time…

Its nighttime in King’s George’s kingdom, and James and Red are still on the run from the king’s knights. Red tells James to find Snow and she will take care of them. Red takes off her red coat just as the full moon appears and attacks the knights in her wolf form. James rides off through the night, with Red howling behind him. I assume Red told James of her secret identity.
What Do You Mean You Won't Whistle While You Work?
It’s daytime now and Snow (sporting the iconic Disney Snow White hair with a red ribbon) hymns the song, “A Smile and a Song.” She places a bluebird on the table, and then tries to kill it with her broom. I loved this scene! Disney’s Snow White for adults! As Evil Snow tries to kill “the vermin,” Grumpy comes in and convinces her to have dinner. The other 6 dwarves are at the table talking, but stop when Snow and Grumpy come in. Snow comments about the lack of dinner, and then Jiminy Cricket appears. The dwarves have planned for an intervention and asked Jiminy to help them. It’s pretty cute how each dwarf says something about how they feel about Snow’s new personality. Even Happy has got a little anger in him. The Jiminy Cricket Show anyone? Grumpy blames the potion for what’s happened to Snow, but Snow states the potion was “the solution, not the problem.” Snow bitterly goes on about how, thanks to Regina, she is living in a house with dwarfs when she should be living with her father at the summer palace. Jiminy tells her that it’s OK to be angry, but not OK to take it out on her friends. This gives Snow the idea that she needs to kill Regina, but Jiminy and Grumpy tell her that is not the best idea. But she ignores them and leaves.

Snow comes across one of the Regina’s knights, and through physical interrogation, the knight tells Snow that Regina will be heading to the summer palace in the morning. Snow knocks him out, stating that the summer palace was built for her mother. As she steals stills his clothes, Grumpy shows up. He is going to help Snow by taking her to Rumple so he can help bring back her memories. He says he is the most powerful man in the word and can do anything, and this intrigues Snow.

The next morning, James comes across the knight who is now completely naked, except his “manhood” which he has covered up with his helmet. Good thing Snow didn’t take that otherwise that would have been an awkward moment. James hands him a blanket and asks him who did this to him. The knight replied it was Snow who is going to kill Regina, although James doesn’t believe Snow is capable of doing something like.

At Rumple’s estate, Grumpy asks Rumple to help Snow, but Rumple says he can’t. No potion can bring back memories of true love. Stating that anyone who can make a true love potion, can do anything. Snow asks Rumple’s help to kill Regina and Rumple is pleased. He gives her a bow and arrow, which Snow mistakes as a weapon to get inside the castle. But Rumple tells her that’s impossible; instead she has to do it when Regina is on her way to the summer palace. Rumple shows her a map of exactly where she can kill her. Grumpy has had enough. He tells Snow that if she does this, she’ll have to do it alone, and Snow states that has always been her plan. Grumpy leaves, while Snow takes the bow and arrow from Rumple, who is very excited. I’m beginning to think that this whole thing with Regina and Rumple is a game to them; to see who can outwit the other.
