Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition DVD Review

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Sep 28, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

In 1937 Disney made his first feature-length animated film: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. The movie opened the door for thousands of other animated films. Without Snow White we may not have movies like Monsters Vs. Aliens, Cars and Wall-E today.

***Special Update! For a limited time you can buy Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs in a really cool pack that comes with the Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack AND seven plush dwarfs! That’s right, you get to play with and cuddle Sleepy, Happy, Grumpy, Dopey, Bashful, Sneezy and Doc while you watch the movie!


Way back in 1937 Walt Disney made his first feature-length animated film: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. This is the movie that opened the door for thousands and thousands of other well-known and loved animated films. Without Snow White, her friendly troupe of seven hard-working, diamond-mining dwarfs and her evil stepmother, we may not have movies like Monsters Vs. Aliens, Cars and Wall-E to enjoy today.

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall …

In case you need a refresher, the quick and dirty version of the classic tale, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, goes something like this: Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who had to run away from her jealous (and very evil!) stepmother and found shelter with a group of seven friendly dwarfs deep in the woods.

… Who’s The Fairest Of Them All?

What few people know is that since 1937 the movie has been reissued a grand total of eight times; every reissue included developments in the animation and in giving each of the seven dwarfs their own unique personality and character (this was totally absent in the original Grimm fairytale). The fairytale was also toned down quite a bit to make it more family-friendly – in 1937 people thought the transformation of the evil stepmother into the wicked witch was too much for little kids, In England the movie was even banned to kids under 16 for a while!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
