    Once Upon a Time "We Are Both" Review: The Un-Evil Queen

    This week's episode was kind of like the cookie segment of an Oreo: It was not the frosting, but it had substance, provided necessary structure, and was pretty great in and of itself.

    • A Fantastic Fairy Tale!

      What began as a Cynical Young Woman and her greedy father's journey to find a way home from a mystical and beautiful world evolved into one of the most unique and fullfiling events ever to be aired on television.

      The 10th Kingdom was a Magical fairy tale come true, set in the world of Fairy Tales. A hybrid of Fantasy, Drama, Romance, Action and Comedy is wraped in a form of a Coming of Age tale of a trouble girl. Meet Virgina, a pretty yet lonley waitress from the bustling 10th Kingdom, that runs across a strange dog which later gets her and her father, Tony, involved in an adventure beyond her wildest dreams. One in which she must learn to conquer her demons and save Nine Mythical Kingdoms, that she thought were only make believe. Along the way she grows to trust, love and ultimatley believe that thier is still good in the world, with help from the many new friends she meets, and conquer one surprisingly evil enemy.

      Told with a flair for the dramatic, yet always down to earth, with strange yey familiar characters that are believable and yet still unreal, and an all star cast of truly talented people, if you ever loved the stories of the Brothers' Grimm search the 10th Kingdom out, you won't be dissapointed.moreless
    • This 10-hour comic-epic event is meant for adults, as is the Arabian Nights, which has been politically corrected a tad for contemporary American audiences.

      Only watched the first DVD. A level of intellgience for maybe a 12 year old with adult themes for at least a 16 year old, particularly violence. And none of this in a way an adult who enjoys young adult fiction might enjoy. I say pass. Nonetheless, I settled in to enjoy it from a kid's perspective, thinking I could vet it for my sister to see if my nephews could watch it. Ugh. A lot of the humor is just plain ugly. Wait a minute I wouldnt let my kids watch this. If I were rating this I would give it a PG 16.moreless
    • One fantastic fairy tale with a strong characters and a captivating story.

      I do believe that most of us enjoyed fairy tales in childhood. The best thing about "The 10th Kingdom" is that it successfully manages to bring back that fascination over fantastic stories even to grown-ups.

      Summarizing the story told in this magical fairy tale is about Virginia's, who is a modern world strong and kind of cynical woman, and her greedy father's travels through the fairy tale land aka the 9th Kingdom trying to find their way back home to modern day New York. Their journey is filled with lots of magical adventures and some major obstacles they have to overcome. Just like in any other fairy tale where the good has to overcome the bad ;)

      On the other hand it is a powerful story of love, coming of age and a girls struggle to find her heart.

      Recommended to anyone who loves a good fantasy story + a good dose of romance. Haven't met the Wolf yet? Indulge yourself and join the Wolf lovers club ;)moreless
    • Great

      This is one of the best miniseries I have ever seen and a must see for lovers of fairy tales. Fairy tales rarely work on TV, but for some reason they really got it right with this one. The characters were all well done and the action sustained for the whole series. I particularly loved Wolf who may be one of my all time favorite "heroes" (I use that term loosely). The acting was superb as was the special effects. I highly recommend finding it and giving it a watch if you missed it. I've re-watched it and still love it.moreless
    • Absolutely Fantastic! To anyone who likes their fairytales with a touch of

      This is one of my favourite movies! My mom rented it for my brother and I when I was younger and we watched the movie almost the whole way through! (by the way this is 6.5 hours). and yes its long but it is most definitely worth the time. I have taken more than one sick day in order to watch this in one day. The story is funny, charming and just a delight. I have made many people watch it and though reluctant at first, they end up loving the twisted fairytale and of course Wolf. Yes the movie is kind of cheesy but give it a break it was done on a mini-series budget. Also, who doesn't like a little cheese? Especially when it comes with such an awesome movie!moreless
