I like Atlantis. I'ma big fan of the Atlantis myth, and their own version of it was pretty cool. But I pretty much like any Disney movie.

I'm not really a Disney fan, but I do like their version of Robin Hood.

The Lion King, without a doubt. It has been since I first saw it.

Probably 'Treasure Planet'. The music was great, and the sci-fi aspect gave an interesting angle on the old story.

I like Fantasia 2000 and Pirates of The Carribean.

The Lion King and The Fox and the Hound (love your icon, Lyrian Aryns :)). Robin Hood was really good, too. My brother taped over my version for a Friends episode. :rolleyes:

Atlantis wasn't bad either.

You mean animated Disney movie right? Aladdin

This is a trickey one, it would have to be a tie between Oliver & Company, The Lion King I and II, Brother Bear, Pirates of the Carribean, Fox and the Hound, and Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure.

Aladdin. It's funny, it's well animated, it's got good characters, it's got an interesting story, and the music is good, too. The only problem is that Genie's references are extremely dated.

Really how so, I thought the whole movie was rather good. Especially since they got Robin Williams to play Genie.

All the recent disney movies have been horrible. I think the best one is The Lion King. That was a classic.

Come now; Brother Bear was a really good one. Home on the Range however...*shudders* monstrosity. It seems Disney knew it was going to be their last 2D so they just didn't care how they made it. Or perhaps it was strategic in they wanted people to see how bad it was so they wouldn't miss the 2D style...they were fools anyway to do what they did. Or should I say Eisner was a fool. 2006 isn't soon enough for him to get the sack...

Favorites: Robin Hood's probably the best Disney animated comedy and the funnest, but its not the best (though its one of my all time favorites, as is Sword in the Stone). The best one is probably either Lion King or Aladdin. The question is what is my favorite so those three (not counting the one/s in the paraphesis) fit the bill. So I'm done. Disney had a lot of good animated movies, hopefully after Eisner's gone they can pick up the pieces of their 2D stuff and get some good screenplays and whatnot and make quality stuff again. I hope that Chicken Little is terrible and flops...that'll show 'em.*

I liked Tarzan, Lilo and Stitch, and the other ones. I just feel that Disney is relying too much on computers nowadays. Way too much. I don't think Disney animators are capable of making anything up to the standard 'Bambi' anymore.

The animated Disney movie era has past. I noticed it a few years ago. It makes me sad. Very sad. :(

P.S. I also thought that Balto was a good one.

Oh good I'm not the only one here who hates Eisner. I will be so glad to see him leave in 2006 and I hope that when he leaves 2d will return to its formal glory because I've seen pictures of the new 3d movies and they make me want to gag. Also enough with the cheapquels. I've been told that they're making Bambi 2, what else is there to talk about any way in that movie. Disney is not as great as it once was I can tell you that.

What else is nifty is that Pixar and Disney are done. Theyre last movies together are the Incredibles, and Cars!.

My favourite is Treasure Planet, I like the whole concept and the ships are awesome. What makes it my favourite though is Jim's board- I want one!!

I loved The Jungle Book as well. I haven't seen the sequel(s?), and I don't think I want to.

I'm not too fond of digital animation, it looks pretentious to me, like it's trying to be as realistic as possible but not quite making it...sort of a mongrel species of moviemaking halfway between cartoon and live action. What they did on Treasure planet was excellent though (IMHO) how they melded the two techniques together. I haven't seen Atlantis but it looks incredible.

The end.

I love their computer animated stuff. Finding Nemo was great, as was Toy Story. I can't remember if Shrek is Disney.

I also want to see Brother Bear. I missed it in theaters.

Sandstripe the Wild
October 11th, 2004, 12:14 PM
I heard somewhere that they're making Fox and the Hound II: Friends Forever (or something like that), it's suppose to come out to theaters in 2006 and Trace Adkins is going to do some of the music for it.

PiarasJ
October 11th, 2004, 04:14 PM
Finding Nemo is an exception, I thought it was great. I can't watch cartoons anymore because my family will yell at me if I get them out at Blockbuster. :rolleyes: But they don't seem to mind things like Finding Nemo and Shrek...

For me it's kind of a three way tie between Fox and The Hound, The Lion King, and Mulan. But i steer clear of all disney sequels! God, they're so horrible..and all of them seem the same to. Take the daughter/son of the main character in the first one and then make them have the exact opposite movtives. *grumble*

I liked both of the Aladdin sequels

I hate how in the sequels they change the animation. I think Stich 2 woulda been great but it looked diffrent than #1 making it lose value. And I never noticed any1 mention The Aristocats...thats a good one. What is an Aristocat, anyway?

Genie turning into Jack Nicholson entirely at random just to call Aladdin "Sparky" doesn't strike you at all as a dated reference?

Not really, to strike me as a dated reference I would've had to understand what that fraze ment. Sorry I tend to be a bit slow sometimes.

The original term is aristocrat, which is a member of the upper class in a society. Disney made a play on words, since the cats were the upper class of the cat society in Britain.

Those are the only sequels that actually worked, imo...Disney pushed its luck afterwards. I never saw Lion King 2...heard mixed things.
1 1/2 was really bad though. It seemed to just make a joke of the first one.

Being a collector of Disney memorabilia it very difficult to choose a favorite movie. They all have their good points and their bad points. If I was to go by what I have collected most as a indication which would be the best movie. The Lion King would be first followed by Robin Hood, 101 Dalmatians and Lilo and Stitch.

Does anyone remember The Great Mouse Detective? I absolutely LOVED it. For those who don't know, it was a spoof of Sherlock Holmes. My favorite characters in it where the toymaker's daughter Olivia and Basil's dog Toby.

I also loved Lion King and Robin Hood. Now those were the classics! Other great classics include Dumbo and Pocahontas.

Oh Yea! I loved that one. It was great! Abso-flippin'- lutely fantastic. Infact, it was so good, that if I had the DVD of VHS, I'd watch it right now.

The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King was a nice run of quality Disney had in the late-'80's, early-'90's. More recently Mulan, Tarzan, and Lilo & Stitch have been pretty good. Virtually all of Disney's backlog of animated films are masterpieces, though, so it's tough to choose.

It is a shame to see them abandoning 2D animation. Eisner made a mess of things.


Genie turning into Jack Nicholson entirely at random just to call Aladdin "Sparky" doesn't strike you at all as a dated reference?

Not as dated as others. I think the Arsenio Hall fist-pumping ("Whoowhoowhoo!") is a better example. ;)

Yep.I have all the classics back home on VHS.

My favourites are DEFINATELY the Lion King and it's first sequel, (the Lion King 3 is just a joke!) Alladin, Mulan and all the Disney-Pixar ones. Bambi was also sweet. They better not make a Bambi 2!

Many of the recent ones are rubbish. And almost all the sequels are bad. I mean, most of the endings are "and they all lived happily ever ever" so how can you possibly make a worth-while sequel. If they're all happy and nothing goes wrong, how can you possibly make a sequel?
And how most of the villains somehow return in them, even when they've already been defeated... it just makes me want to be sick!

Of Disney's animated movies, my favorites are Beauty & the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Mulan and Alice in Wonderland. (I'm probably forgetting a few :) )

I also like a lot of Disney's older, live-action movies... Pollyanna, The Parent Trap, Summer Magic, The Absent Minded Professor... etc... :)

The Shaggy Dog was a Disney movie. I didn't know they were remaking it again. I remember they remade it as a tv movie (Magical/Wonderful World of Disney) several years ago.

Animation, in no particular order:

Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Dumbo, Jungle Book, Aristocats, 101 Dalmatians, Robin Hood and Fantasia.

Live action: most of the wildlife stuff from the 50's/60's (although when I heard the truth about the 'lemming suicide', I was deeply shocked), The Herbie movies - especially The Love Bug.

But for pure Disney-esque schmaltz value, give me 'Old Yeller' anyday... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mulan was pretty good... Eddie Murphy did a good job playing Mushu. He and Crik-Kee made that movie, my family didn't even consider watching it until we saw Mushu introduced in the previews.

Oliver and Company is still my all time favorite movie though, I love Dodger and Tito. :D

I had almost forgotten about Oliver and Company. Yeah, that was a great movie. I even got the soundtrack for it when I was a little kid. :cool:
