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)
I've honestly never seen Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs before! Only "The Silly Song" sequence which airs each year here in Norway as part of the Disney Christmas special "From all of us to all of you" which has been one of the main Christmas traditions in our country for over 3 decades. And what else can I say then this was a real treat for someone who loves cartoons!
American's first feature length animation movie came at the end of 1937, a year where there was so little noticeable innovation in the movie industry. Honestly there was a sense of stagnation within the studios and ideas that year. Highly helped by the strict moral Hays Code preventing…
Evil stepmoms. They're a stereotype for a reason.
How could anyone give this film a negative review? I’m not saying that it is impossible to view this animation classic and have a less than stellar impression of it. I’m saying that this film is so beloved and so ingrained in the popular culture that writing a review that could be perceived as “bad” could illicit vitriol from anyone who reads it. That being said….
I’m joking a little bit. I did not dislike this film, but I feel that the seemingly universal praise of this movie is more than a bit hyperbolic.
The movie is an important historical and culture milestone. It was the first feature length animated movie to be released across the country. It made an…
Review In A Nutshell:
Feature Animation films have come a long way, starting all the way back in 1937 with Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves; a film that proved what was considered the impossible. I grew up with Disney, it was practically my third parent; my mother would put it on as a way to occupy our afternoon and nights, teaching us lessons that would shape our perspectives of our surroundings, while also providing entertainment that would allow us to escape into its unique worlds, opening our imaginations and stimulating our sense of creativity. Eventually one would grow older, beginning to grasp the rules of reality, asking the real questions that would dampen the film’s power, and developing…
First? Yes. Best? Eh, not really.
One of the greatest of all time
Snow White stands on its historical distinction alone as the first of the Disney animated features, and as one of the most faithful (if sanitized, obviously) fairy tales ever put to film. Modern audiences might decry it for its bland characters and somewhat hoakey nature, but for what it is it still holds up to some degree.
The sad truth is that Snow White herself is an incredibly bland character, with almost no defining traits outside of her kindness and her beauty. Admittedly that fills the stereotypes for the time, but to a modern audience the character is incredibly dated, far more so than the Disney princesses of the Renaissance era and beyond. And her singing voice is, to be…
A landmark in animation and a very important film. Admittedly, the character of Snow White is pretty bland, but the dwarves more than make up for it with their personalities.
Vital animated film.
Truly a masterpiece of 20th century animation; this first Disney animated film is one that stands out in the minds of not only Disney aficionados, but those who appreciate film as well. It marks a change in film making, with its multi plane cameras, that unfortunately are visible in some of the opening scenes. This film has transcended the tests of time, although there are pieces that stand out as distinctly 1930s in beauty aesthetics. The music is absolutely beautiful, distinctive of the time, but beautiful nonetheless. This must be the third or fourth time watching this consciously, though the first time that I'm reviewing it. As an avid Disney fan, and historian this is a crucial piece to the Disney puzzle that has been perfectly enjoyable to watch once more.
4.5 out of 5 (A-)
Another classic Disney movie. Timeless
A beautiful maid must take refuge in the forest when her evil stepmother the Queen demands her heart. I haven't seen this in, maybe, 15 years. Having developed an intense passion for film since, I've gone through many lists. Every time there's a list about animated films, this one seems to always be at the top, and, because of this, I always wrote its placement off as more of a historical marker - it was only placed there because it was Disney's first animated feature. Whoop-de-do.
And then I rewatch it today, and I realize that was a very ignorant thing of me to think. I was very much taken aback by the animation, particularly the transitions - a blue…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
