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…
Need I say more? Had Snow White had never been made, the animation genre would probably not have existed. The animation is very colorful and detailed, mixing the cartoonish style with a natural setting, the characters are memorable, the songs are great, the heroine is likeable, and the villain is purely creepy. Great emotional ending, funny seven dwarfs, and beware of that dang poisoned apple, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is perfect entertainment for every family. Walt Disney's first animated feature is still... timeless.
"Magic Mirror on the all, who is the fairest one of all?"
Cast and characters: 9/10
Production values: 10/10
Upon rewatching this classic, I was awarded much more appreciation for the achievement in cinema this film truly is. Nicknamed "Disney's folly" during production, everyone in the 30s believed a feature length animated feature would never work, and it would bankrupt Disney's studio that he poured his heart in soul into. The documentary on Disney that I logged previous to this film really gave me a correct appreciation for how much work and effort went into this animated film. Each frame went through multiple stages of drawing, coloring, highlighting etc. It was so dizzying to begin to imagine. And the result is this magical adventure into the world of jealous/evil witches, cooperative animals, and dwarfs with distinct personalities. This time…
A true classic from a different age. I won't compare this film to modern standards (in story telling) as it was made so long ago. For the time in which it was made the animation was superb and honestly it has aged well. This is a piece of animation art and has always held a very fond place in my heart. A true classic.
A wonderful loving tale of Snow White and her friends the seven dwarfs.
Dated and twee. Yes, historically it's off the scale in terms of importance and ambition but it terms of evolution it's the first step on a long journey with a lot of work to be done.
Watching all of Walt Disney Animated Studios films starting today, so I can watch even those I haven't seen yet, and properly see which ones are my favorite ones. As for Snow White, I really like it! Coming from Walt Disney himself, how could I not like it? Even so, the first minutes after she escapes are kind of dull for me, but mostly because I would rather watch the Dwarfs being the funny people they are.
In some ways, the Disney people have never topped this movie.
"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" seems like a storybook come to life. The images of the opening half-hour of the film, with the evil queen, the lovely Snow White, the dwarfs marching, they are etched into the brains of every American who has lived from 1937 on.
What struck me on my latest viewing of this movie is how balanced it is. Snow White is the title character, and her conflict with the Queen is the main plot of the film. But the dwarfs are the male element of the film, more so than the Prince (who is basically just wish-fulfillment for Snow White.) They provide slapstick comedy and roughhouse humor, so the film is balanced between a "princess" plot and "boy" humor.
A real accomplishment.
I had a random urge to see every film from Disney animation, so I thought I would start with the one that started it all.
One of the most influential movies in cinematic history also happens to still be one of the best animated movies of all time. This is the first time I have watched this in about 15 years, but man this thing still holds up almost 80 years later. It defines the term "timeless classic".
All of the characters and their designs are amazing (The Queen's Design Post-Transformation is still one of the best from Disney), the humor still holds up, it is one of the darkest from Disney, and the animation still looks great.
The movie is very simple, but it's hard to not appreciate all of the detail that went into Walt Disney's first feature length animation.
I usually dislike Disney princess movies with the exceptions being "Cinderella" (the one from 2015) and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." I really like this movie for three reasons: 1) I love the classic Disney feeling it emits just as the parks do, 2) I love the animation, 3) the story is really interesting. As this was the first animated feature film ever made, the animation is surprisingly good. Not to mention, the story isn't super cheesy and it doesn't have a problem with its dark ending. The movie is just under an hour and half and keeps me enthralled the whole time. Surprisingly, there is a large amount of filler that feels natural. Honestly, this is my second favorite animated movie after "Pinnochio" and shouldn't be dismissed by any film fan.
