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…

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…
Evil stepmoms. They're a stereotype for a reason.
I need to have a stern talking to my mother. Why did she think this was appropriate viewing for a small female child?
The idea is to run away when things get rough, pine annoyingly for the hot guy who you have literally never exchanged a word with, impose yourself on a bunch of quite frankly strange homosexual gentlemen and then when they give you one piece of advice - don't talk to strangers - you do the opposite and eat their mutated fruit.
AND THEN. When your loving harem of gay men have stood vigil by your bitchin' coffin for several seasons you ride off on your Princes' horse (who you STILL haven't spoken to by the way. He…
If Walt Disney's “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” had been primarily about Snow White, it might have been forgotten soon after its 1937 premiere, and treasured today only for historical reasons, as the first full-length animated feature in color. Snow White is, truth to tell, a bit of a bore, not a character who acts but one whose mere existence inspires others to act. The mistake of most of Disney's countless imitators over the years has been to confuse the titles of his movies with their subjects. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is not so much about Snow White or Prince Charming as about the Seven Dwarfs and the evil Queen--and the countless creatures of the forest and…
I don't like the restored Blu-Ray-ified versions of these movies. It really takes away the vintage feel, call me a nostalgia nut if you please but I love it. Still a great film.
Beeeaaaautiful in every regard, although I was reminded of how brutal the fairy tales are the earlier Disney films were based on.
While not the strongest of Disney's animated films, this one obviously stands out because of its place as the first animated feature film. I haven't read the original source material in a long time so can't remember how faithful they are, but this certainly is a film that could've done with a bit more character development. Okay, a lot more character development. There's not a whole lot to Snow, the Evil Queen, and especially Prince Charming. The dwarfs are vastly entertaining but again, don't develop over the course of the story.
The other issue is how dated it is now. Every time I see it, I feel that every cleaning company must've been using Snow's reaction to the dust to…
Who said today's kids - films was brutal?!
Unreal stuff. Is still great and plays like a horror movie for me these days.
Oh my God, this movie is beautiful.

The OG princess.
But kind of a weird movie.
We’ve come a long way.

My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando this summer so we are watching 90 some Disney films and 40 some Universal films. So sorry in advance my feed will be filled with some animation films for awhile.
I haven't visited "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" for at least five years or so, I remember the plot of the story but I completely forgot how dull Snow White herself is. Even the animation that goes with her is so lifeless. All seven of the dwarfs have such…
