Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Reviews
Let's just say that times have changed and the comments made by Grumpy about women were a bit uncalled for to be honest. This, I feel, goes hand in hand with the dwarfs expecting Snow White to do all the housework and cooking. Women shouldn't have to do it all themselves. Men are required to help out too. But I understand that the movie was written this way because of the time period and that's how a lot of people did things and how many men thought things should be.
I also disliked the mannerisms of the queen/witch. She was very abusive and harsh. But again, I understand that that's the character.
I've also realized that due to the time period, Walt Disney didn't hire many women to work on his films and I wish he did because they are genius.
Overall, I'd give this film about a four stars. With all things considered, it was a pretty great film.
As a whole the movie has a pleasant soundtrack with some great songs like "Hi-Ho" and "Someday my Prince Will Come" but no songs you would find Taylor singing in the shower. Characters are great though Snow White is a little too stereotypically feminine (flailing her arms around like wet noodles, cooking, cleaning) but she is still enchanting. The Evil Queen is fittingly devious and the seven dwarfs are all entertaining, each with their own moment to shine. Overall, Snow White is a classic and sets the bar high for Disney films to come.
- Not my favourite Disney film, but I must say the animation is amazing, especially considering it's over 80 yrs old and the story is entertainingly told. Recommended!
