Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Happiest, Dopiest, Grumpiest, Sneeziest movie of the year.
A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, the wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be known as "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own.
Sorry, but the Queen is definitely hotter than Snow White. That slave in the mirror is a lying bastard.
Dear Disney people,
Thank you. I laughed so hard at the dwarfs, I fell off the couch.
Hugs and kisses,
(My daddy is Dirk and he made me watch this)

Starting now, I will try to watch/re-watch every single Disney animated film in order from when they came out. I know it's going to take a long while and for all I know I could just be getting halfway through come a year from now. In any case, I just wanted to see if the films that had a huge effect on me as a kid will still have that effect on me now. Why? Because I love Disney and for most of us, we've loved Disney since we were kids. It's a cultural phenomenon that we've all been introduced to at least once in our lives and why not see how well they hold up…
The first animated feature film ever is also one of the best animated experiences of all time. David Hand was named crazy, but his unique masterwork has transcended 70 years later and now is referenced as an inspirational source for creative and inventive storytelling. The Toy Story of the 30's (as for influence and landmark filmmaking goes).
"Don't eat the fuckin' apple"!
Film #1 on my mission to lighten up as I hit my 30th year.
The first Disney animated movie which also boasts the first soundtrack in American film history.
If I had one gripe, it'd be the pacing. It rushes the premise and we spend and incredible amount of time prating about with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs before anything dramatic happens. Then after she ***SPOILER*** bites the poisoned apple, the whole thing wraps up in just over 4 minutes.
That slight niggle can be forgiven when taking into account the sheer technical feat endured to achieve what I've just witnessed. The animation is outstanding. This was 1937!!! Mental.
Also, I'm well…
First time since, god, 10? 8? The last time I saw this all the way through may have been during a revival in the '80s, which means I've seen it on 35mm. (This was a Blu-ray, in class.) It's pretty insane how even the most iconic characters have almost no screentime. Prince Charming (hilariously devoid of personality beyond a lovely tenor) swings by in the beginning then a second time to kiss a corpse. The Queen has three scenes, and disappears for the entire middle, then quickly turns into a horrid hag. (Maybe she should have made a potion to make her hotter?) Also of note: like Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, this is a film with no (or almost no)…
ive seen most of the disney cartoon movies but i dont remember most of them, just small fragments that play in my head when im high or sleep deprived.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
As something to do and because I have copies of most of them now, I'm watching all (or as many as I happen to have) of the Disney animated theatrical movies in chronological order. It would be a way to watch the ones I haven't watched as much like the earlier ones like this one and "Pinocchio" and to incentivize watching the ones I haven't seen like the Latin America inspired ones ("Saludos Amigos" and "The Three Caballeros")
I actually haven't watched "Snow White" in a long time. It was not one of the Disney movies we had a VHS copy of and I may have only seen it a handful of times. Rewatching it, I was struck by how…
The film is charming as hell, and has a magical quality. The flaws are hard to ignore though.
This is a landmark achievement in the medium both technologically and narratively, much like Citizen Kane was for live-action cinema. And while I think it has been outclassed many times over since it was released, its historical importance precludes whatever rating I may give it.
One of my top Disney movies, it has definitely grown on me since childhood. Frightening imagery, real scares, and a hilarious ensemble cast of dwarves that has now been transferred into The Hobbit. Definitely made a fair case for the invention of full-length animated movies.
A bit dated in style but still very enjoyable and some great animation.
My niece had never seen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and while I've never been a big fan of it, it seemed like a movie-watching deficiency that should be rectified so we watched it. I've always found the story and characterization kind of thin, and I've never liked Snow White's singing voice, but what struck me this time through is just how amazing the animation is. Just look at the owl faces carved into the end of each step on the dwarfs's staircase! This was always a three-star movie for me, but I was so impressed by the animation this time through that I've bumped it up to four.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Was Re-Ranked on My Flickchart to #723/1594
Sin Blancanieves y los siete enanitos el cine tal cual hoy lo conocemos no existiría. Creo que Walt Disney es el genio más grande que dio el siglo XX.
