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…
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…
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…
Evil stepmoms. They're a stereotype for a reason.
How it is that I never added this movie to the site?
You know how Avatar and Titanic and any movie that makes a huge leap forward technologically inevitably has a stupid story so simple it's like a child is telling it to you with a stupid blank face? I think they all got the idea from Snow White.
But Snow White is FUCKING GOOD. Like, it's so simple a child COULD tell it to you. But the child, in this case, is like a genius, amazing storyteller. There's like this insane simplicity and thoughtfulness to this movie. It's not like the movie is bare and they had to fill it with shit. It's almost the opposite. Snow White is attempting to pack as much information and humor and excitement into the…
I'm actually surprised that I didn't remember how dark some of this was. The vultures eagerly taking flight after someone falls to their death, the dwarfs (dwarves?) nearly bludgeoning the princess with mining tools as she slumbers, etc. It's a good first entry for the long line of animated Disney features, however I found it a bit aggravating that Snow White is so outlandishly perfect and the final conflict was resolved so quickly.
(Original review outdated, re-evaluation required at later date)
Good gracious will someone shut her up? Snow white is lucky the dwarfs had no neighbors or else this movie would have ended much sooner. 2 1/2 stars. 1 for the epic sweep of the Queens cape, 1 for Dopey who is a delight and 1/2 for the turtle who is definitely a fairly useless spy for a corporation intent on usurping both the Queen and Snow White.
Applause for being Disney's first feature, and it's pretty impressive that they got the formula down on the first try. The Dwarves are endearing as expected.
But I still don't really like musicals (of which Snow White's voice is ear-piercing), the Queen's plot for 'revenge' isn't at all logical, nothing really happens the whole film, the 'true love kiss' is bullshit, and Snow White is so damn dainty it hurts my heart. And she just seems constantly high. Open your damn eyes.
two or three more torture scenes than i expected
It's strange how an 88 minute film can waste so much time. All conflict happens at the beginning and the very end, just about everything in between is a vignette showing a few pointless fillers (a 5 minute washing your face song followed by a 5 minute dance sequence followed by another 4 minutes of them trying to sleep). But this is forgivable, Disney was right at the peak end of the Silly Symphonies era. The Queen makes it fun, but this is still a few years before Disney realized that the villains were always more interesting than the heroes.
There's a lot eyelash fluttering for some reason, save for Snow because her eyes are closed for most of the…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
