3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately entertaining., April 10, 2012
This review is from: Mirror Mirror (DVD)
A re-telling of the classic Disney tale of Snow White receives a modern-day make over. The cast of characters is still largely the same, but this time Snow White is a little more independent and able to fend for herself against the evil god-mother. A valiant attempt at updating this tale works well at times, not so well at others. The film certainly looks terrific, with costumes and colorful sets that really bring a magical feel to the film. The humor in it sometimes falls flat as the attempt to be hip does not always work. The best movie's best asset is Lily Collins, who is absolutely delightful as Snow White. I would say that this is a movie that the kids will certainly enjoy and the adults who take them will find it entertaining enough.

What I semi-hate about Disney, is the way Disney gradually assumes ownership of other people's stories - Felix Salton - go ahead and try to find "Bambi" in its original form, rather than "Disney's" Bambi - it's not impossible, but most people haven't heard of any other Bambi; J M Barrie, author of Peter Pan; and see? The Brothers' Grimm's retelling of this old European fairy tale is now the 'classic DISNEY tale of Snow White!' It's not that Disney's tamer, gentler versions of great books and stories are without value, one just wishes the Disney corporation were more generous to the geniuses that produced the creative work that has made Disney so very very rich. Just remember, the "Disney Version" of any great tale is like a great sculpture reworked in bubble gum pink plastic.

I did not realize that this was not an original story of Disney.

Why would you? Disney rarely acknowledges the origins of his stories, it seems, and the books generally have only Disney's name on them. The Brothers Grimm, of course, seem less like people than some tradition - but they were collectors and preservers of Europe's 'fairy tales' - and that is a great thing - altho' Grimm tales are, in fact, very very grim - so maybe the Disney version is better for younger children. Lots of people think Disney created Bambi, even - a book actually written by Felix salton in French, which, when translated became a children's classic in English as well as French. THAT wouldn't be quite so bad, but Disney ruthlessly pursues anyone who in any way, however small, violates their copyright. They even forced a public school to get rid of a Disney-themed mural. Yet the Lion King VERRRRRY closely resembles an anime series from the late 60s- early 70, involving a lion cub called Kimba (?). Some people thought the creators of that anime series should sue, but they didn't.

Just remember, if it weren't for Walt Disney, many of these works would have been long forgotten. Not to speak of the vast amounts of joy and happiness, through his maginative efforts, they brought, and via his company still bring (for the most part) to so, so many...
Walt Disney created a national treasure for America, and on to the entire world. Would we only have more like him....
God bless him.
