Mirror Mirror

(PG)★★★☆☆

This mashup retelling of the Snow White fairy tale zings along on the comic timing of its cast. Julia Roberts makes a fantastically wicked queen, and Lily Collins plays a convincing Snow White foil, albeit a Snow who wins fencing duels and receives martial-arts training from the dwarfs. With magical production design and splendid costumes, this mostly conventional princess story gets its fair share of romantic froth and more than a little moxie.

Total GWAR

By Jarret Keene

Costumed, comedy shock rockers GWAR, from Richmond, Va., have been slinging fake gore at audiences and performing absurd songs such as “You Are My Meat” for more than 20 years. Vegas Seven called the band’s frontman, Dave Brockie, a.k.a. Oderus Urungus (an intergalactic, horned humanoid barbarian), who refused to break character. Indeed, Brockie insisted on conversing as if he’s really the chief “chaos warrior intent on eradicating all life on Earth—even the tiny, helpless creatures.” GWAR’s most recent album is 2010’s Bloody Pit of Horror.
