In this thread, discuss animated Disney films.

Do you like 'em? Hate 'em?
Which is your favorite? Which ones don't you like?

I loved the "invasion" trailers for Lilo &amp Stitch.

Thinking about it, I've not seen very many -- Sword in the Stone, Fantasia, Song of the South (half-counts), Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, the Aristocats, Beauty &amp the Beast, Mulan, Aladdin, Atlantis I can remember. A lot of the standards I know I've never seen.

While Fantasia was a virtuoso technical display, I would put Atlantis as most favourited for not being at all Disney-like.

Gotta love classic Disney, haven't you.

In terms of animation, "The Sword in the Stone" is a personal favourite; containing one of cinemas funniest duels: Merlin vs Madam Mim
“Snow White” and "Beauty and the Beast" are fine examples of simple, yet engaging storytelling. Love B+tB’s soundtrack, though the special edition's additional song "Human Again" was very unnecessary.

"Alice in Wonderland" stands among one of the worst in Disney's library, you can tell the animators weren't happy with what they were working with.
"Fantasia 2000"'s celebrity cameos were pretty infuriating, especially Bette Midler.
Salvador Dali = "Limp-watches guy". RAEG, anyone?

"Bambi"... everyone says that they cry when you-know-what happens, well I don't. The ending however, when the great prince steps down... now that's moving.

I have to say that I do not like most animated Disney films, though some of them are very good and others are even underrated

now I hate to admit it, but I do think that Sleeping Beauty is perhaps the best of the "classic" Disney films in all its implausible fairy tale glory, Maleficent is perhaps the most bad-arse villain Disney ever dared to create, the production values are the best of its era (even beating out Fantasia IMO), the songs and score are really good and never annoy me like most Disney scores, and I have yet to see the classic "Disney princess"-type story told any better or more convincingly before or since

most of the animated Disney films I like are the ones that are overlooked, like The Rescuers Down Under, Oliver and Company, The Sword and The Stone, 101 Dalmatians, The Fox and the Hound, etc., the ones that seemed to try to go beyond the typical Disney princess formula at least, even Beauty and the Beast and Mulan get a little kudos from yours truly

others are just "meh" (i.e. Fantasia, it's like Avatar circa 1940) or are rubbish IMO

and, oh yeah, screw all the PC bastards who have kept Song of the South for not getting a full U.S. home release

if I ever get control of Disney, one of the first things I do is re-release that movie in theaters to lead up to a DVD/Bluray release, damn the consequences and the Al Sharpton-esque busybodies of the world

you could seriously get hardcore porn or other smut far easier than you can get Song of the South, it's totally pathetic

The "Pink Elephants on Parade" sequence from Dumbo makes me want to permanently destroy all computer animation and make everyone do hand-drawn animation forever.

I need to catch up on my Disney. Granted, I don't think I've seen as much of their works as some, but I grew up with a pretty fair collection of VHS. My favourites [In order] would be:

Lion King [Kimba the white lion rip-off aside]
Aladdin
Hercules

And by this point I can't really say. I STILL have not seen Frog Princess, which is weird considering I was pretty hyped about them going back to traditional animation, I'd love for them to do more like that again instead of 3D and just leave that to Pixar [I do admit that Intangled looks pretty lovely at the moment though.]

None, all, none, all. I grew out of movies like that when I was like 14 and haven't looked back since (yes this includes Pixar). Come to think of it I barely remember most of them.

Noooooooo, Pixar is only thing that Disney, Inc. has done right since Walt Disney himself died!! (only slightly exaggerating there)

anyway, I still find it mildly retarded that Disney felt so compelled to return to traditional animation, with the patented Disney Princess® formula no less in the Princess and Frog politically correct business (it felt more like Beauty and the Beast meets Live and Let Die, Danjaq/EON Productions should have looked into suing over certain elements IMO)

yeah, yeah, yeah, the legacy, blah, blah, blah, but as the Star Wars prequels and James Cameron's Avatar have taught us, no amount of whiz-bang CGI-3D (or sleepy cel/drawn 2D) gloriousness is a substitute for a really good story

It's highly disturbing that no one has mentioned Pinocchio yet. It's by far Disney's finest cartoon.

Aladdin
Mulan

I don't mind them as long they are good, and I always did enjoy the pre-90's Disney movies in my opinon.

Finally somebody mentions it. That's the only animated Disney film that really sticks with me, so I'd have to put it as my favorite. As for all of the really old Disney classics, I haven't seen them since a very small boy. I'd have to re-watch them all in order to list a favorite among them.
