It is Snow White's afterbirth that merits both canonization and destruction.

The film is as charming as it is novel in conception and execution and it is so bound to appeal as strongly to grown-ups as to youngsters.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs may not be the best example of a Disney classic, thanks mainly to its lightly-plotted story, but with great animation, memorable characters, and beautiful music, it still remains one of their most endearing films.

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

In addition to its historical value as the first animated feature, it is still a delight, with memorable songs and characters.

There are only a tiny number of films that have come anywhere close to equaling its achievement.

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

It luxuriates in the art of animation, watching the various animals race through the woods, or watching Snow White running scared from an array of imaginary horrors.

So perfect is the illusion, so tender the romance and fantasy, so emotional are certain portions when the acting of the characters strikes a depth comparable to the sincerity of human players, that the film approaches real greatness.

...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.

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

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

Great movie, great treatment, but if you're particular about your collection, know that the combo pack is available in both DVD and Blu-ray packaging.

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