You've probably seen it 15 times by now, so why not make it 16?

...the animation itself is top-notch, and in a number of darker sequences (Snow White's terrified entry into the forest, for example), Disney's adoption of Expressionist visual devices makes for genuinely powerful drama.

Most remarkable in Snow White's romps through the forest with her pack of animal pals, Disney's brilliant cell animation has rarely been equaled.

While I see the film's importance from a technical aspect and laud it for its sense of mood, it's not at the top of my list of animated classics.

Songs like 'Heigh-Ho'and 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' are timeless; people who haven't seen this in years still recall every word.

It is a classic, as important cinematically as The Birth of a Nation or the birth of Mickey Mouse.

Walt Disney's greatest achievement, the sensation of the motion picture industry... Unbelievably beautiful... Unutterably charming... The beloved fairy tale comes to vivid life.

To one degree or another, every animated feature made since owes it something.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs may not be the 'fairest of them all,' but being the very first of them all is reason enough to admire the effort.

...the very definition of a classic....and the newly restored, THX-mastered DVD transfer is breathtaking.

More than the grandfather of full-length animated films, it is a genuine classic in its own right.

The first time was the charm with the queen, probably still the most effective, scariest, and coolest villain Disney has yet created.

Like many of the Disney films, from Pinocchio to Fantasia, this film is a cinematic rite of passage -- for children and adults.
