I've not seen Lovecraft Country, but I read the first few pages of the book on the bus today, and it gripped me from line one.

In hindsight, I think humanity peaked when this work of genius was put up in 2013.

And Snow White's done. It has its charm, but drags horribly in the middle. Still, it sparked everything that is to come. One down, 57 to go!

Letting birds bake the pie is terribly unsanitary, Snow White.

Okay, the Queen in her evil lair is actually an interesting section, especially after watching dwarfs wash for fifteen minutes.

Grumpy has every reason to live up to his name, to be honest.

All that to say that Snow White is ... not that interesting a film, really.

I guess it is the lot of anything revolutionary that it will eventually become trite as its innovations are adopted and developed by later works.

On the one hand, I don't remember much of this film. On the other, the story is so well known, and the film so iconic, it's hard to be surprised by anything.

Look, if a bunch of woodland creatures did half the work, I could keep my flat tidy, too.

How old is Snow White supposed to be? She assumes the dwarfs' house is made for children, but acts very child-like herself.

So far this film is very straightforward and to the point, with a pretty passive main character. Still better than "Snow White and the Huntsman".

Prince Charming does not look like he could have that voice.

I've also never seen the original, only the Norwegian dub. It's surprisingly weird to hear the evil queen speaking English.

This one I have seen before, of course, and clips and highlights many times more. Been a long while since I watched the whole thing, though.

So, since Disney+ has launched here now, and there are several eras of the Disney canon I have never seen, I think I'll do what I'm sure plenty others have done, and go through them all in order. It's a ! First up, Snow White.

Okay, so Disney+ Norway doesn't have Ducktales. Or Darkwing Duck. Or Talespin. But it does have Kim Possible!
