So, I just finished watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
, because I plan in rewatching all Дисней Princess Фильмы in order. I'll also write a review for each after I watch it - except Frozen, maybe, since I already did, but I may write a comparision about what changed in my opinions.
I'll also try giving each part (plot, music, etc.) a score, but I warn Ты I can't
be too harsh.
Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, the fairest one of all: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs The Plot
I see almost no problems with the plot. in addition to being concise, it's charming and captures the viewer's attention. It's just like a fairytale coming alive in the screen. Of course, I сказал(-а) "I see almost
no problems with the plot".
There are filler scenes. But they aren't bad. I thought I would be bored and annoyed when the dwarfs enter the house, but it kept my attention in the screen - it's very funny. I also like the washing scene, except the thing with Dopey swallowing the soap - but gladly that was short. But the fact I like then don't stop it from making them what they are: filler scenes.
I also wished they had kept link
scene. Sorry, but it would teach some people еще about Snow White's nature, since she is obviously (and delightfully) manipulative in this scene - and it's obvious that's the reason Walt cut it, just like he cut the scene with Золушка laughing of her sisters. He prefered to keep their, ah, "imperfections"
to only the most open-minded ones.
I also wish, to a lesser extent, he would've kept the link
scene. It's cute and I like Snow White's attitude in this scene. And, really, if I could travel back to that time, I would have told Walt to make a short film of that deleted scene where the Dwarfs build a постель, кровати for Snow White. I can't find it in good quality in Youtube, so I'm not passing a link, but Ты can easily find it.
Also, this has some of the "best" Дисней scenes, in my opinion: Best Cleaning Scene ("Whistle While Ты Work"), Best Baking Scene ("Someday My Prince Will Come (reprise)") and one of the best Disney's Happy Endings. So, for the captivating fairytale-like story and the entertaining filler scenes, I give the plot a score of 9,1
. The Characters
: Snow White
: I know some people see Snow White as bland and stupid and passive, but I cannot see it, really. She's so interesting and an over-layered character, with many different traits - she can be cheerful, childlike, wise, motherly, bossy, sassy, flirty and even manipulative. I Любовь how unrealistic she is, the perfect example of a fairy-tale princess, and I watch Дисней Фильмы to flee from my somewhat depressing reality (not that I don't Любовь my life).
She is sooo cute and I Любовь how she knows she has everyone wrapped around her little finger - the searching Prince, the house-cleaning animals, the welcoming dwarfs - and is still so truly joyful and sweet. I also don't think she is a stereotypical housewife или any of that, well, crap (pardon my language). She was smart to offer her domestic help, или the dwarfs wouldn't let her stay. And her life DOESN'T revolves arround the Prince. I was observing that today - she's the only princess whose life doesn't revolves arround something. She is in the dwarfs' cottage, thinking she's безопасно, сейф and living her life like another ordinary day.
And to be honest, I think she dealt with the old lady the right way. Really, she was obviously reluctant to give information to the woman, but when she saw the Животные attacking her and the woman having a heart-attack, she acted the role of the good samaritan and let her inside. Also, she was right in accepting the яблоко - old people are REALLY difficult to deal with. I should know.
Sorry for the rant, but I think that was needed. Moving on! The Seven Dwarfs
: They're some of Disney's best sidekicks. Like Snow White, they're multi-layered, because they seem gruff and rough man at first, but they're really sweethearts at heart. They're also really funny. My избранное are Doc, Bashful and Grumpy. I Любовь how much of a bumbling leader Doc is and Bashful is the cutest, with his platonic Любовь for Snow White. And Grumpy... well, need I explain? One of the best Дисней grumpy characters, right there with Donald Duck.
Actually, I think all dwarfs have some degree of platonic Любовь for Snow White, but the thing is - not even them know it is love, because they're so clueless. The Evil Queen
: Evil Ruler passing throught! That woman is just pure wickedness. She's so vain and bloodlusting. I Любовь her cold, regal behavior and I find her really funny as the Hag. Of course, I only think that now. As a child, I was scared to death of her! When she popped up in that window - Oh My Gosh! That never failed to scare me!
In short, one of the best Дисней villains. The Prince
Yes, the Prince is underdeveloped, but I think he is not bland. For a character with his amount of screentime, he sure shows how much of a romantic, sensible, dedicated guy he is. One of my Избранное Дисней Princes. Forest Animals
I looooooooove the Forest Animals! They're SO cute! And so useful - cleaning the whole cottage and bringing the dwarfs to the rescue! Their cutest moment is helping Snow White bake the gooseberry pie for Grumpy. ^^ AND THAT TURTLE, OH MY GOD, I Любовь THAT TURTLE! BEST Дисней CAMEO ANIMAL EVER! The Huntsman
Well, I think it was really kind and human of him to let Snow go, but there isn't a lot else to say. But I still like you, Huntsman. So, for some multi-layered characters, entertaining characters and some underdeveloped ones, I give the characters a score of 8,7
. The Music
The Музыка of this movie is really charming and memorable. It's also catchy, in a good way. I'm Wishing
is a really sweet and dreamy song and One Love
is one of Disney's best Любовь songs. With a Smile and a Song
is a bright and inspiring song, that fills your сердце with sunshine when Ты hear it. Whistle While Ты Work
is probably my Избранное of the soundtrack and the best Disney's house-cleaning song. Heigh-Ho
is a classic and catchy tune and The Washing Song
is simply fun. I may say The Silly Song
is Disney's best nonsensical song. The princess' theme song, Someday My Prince Will Come
is not the best "I Want" song, but it's still great and charming and dreamy. The Finale
, which is a reprise of One Song
, is full of joy and has the great power to leave everyone full of happiness inside.
So, the songs I really love
are: I'm Wishing, One Song, With a Smile and a Song, Whistle While Ты Work, The Silly Song and the Finale.
And the songs I love/like
are: Heigh-Ho, The Washing Song and Someday My Prince Will Come.
That's right! There's not a single
song I dislike in this movie! So, for its memorable and charming songs, I give the Музыка a score of 9,8
. The Score
The score is simply great! It's one of the most memorable ones and does anyone else feels like it can tell a story in its own? So, for its memorability and uniqueness, I give the score a score of 10 The Animation
So, this section wasn't in the original article, because I was sleepy and forgot to add.
As the first full feature-lenght made by Walt and his team, it's obvious that they were still learning. But I don't think the Анимация is as bad as some people like to say. The backgrounds and the coloring are beautiful and the characters' movements seem realistic to me.
The only complain I have is that I don't like how Snow White looks from far (for an example, when she is picking Цветы - her beautiful lips look ugly and messed up) или how she looks in some sequences - when she tells the Dwarfs they have to wash and when she sings Someday My Prince Will Come
- her forehead seems disproportionately big in these scenes.
However, I want to say I Любовь how she looks in the other scenes, in particular when she enter the dwarfs' house for the first time and clean it. So, for the generally good animation, but for some inconsistencies in the main character's animation, I give the Анимация a score of
b]8,0[/b]. Overview Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
is just like a fairytale - timeless and an essential part of every kid's happy childhood. It's one of my Избранное Фильмы ever and it keeps my full attention. I give it a general score of 9,7
So, I thank Ты for taking the time to read this quite long review and I hope that, even if Ты don't agree with me, Ты have enjoyed hearing my opinion.
Bye bye and 'till Далее time!
