I've been thinking of doing this for ages and now that I've finished my 500 films list I figured I might. It's not secret that I'm quite the fan of animation so here's a thread dedicated to all things cartoony.

Itís one of those lists that gets updated sporadically. Itís not a collection simply of new films Iím seeing for the first time, or just old favourites, but every animated film I see this year, short or long, Iíll just watch and review them as they arrive. With each new addition Iíll place them in an ordered list. I tried this with WWII films a few years back and that lasted for a total of 4 films. Hopefully this will be better

And as it's christmas, have a picture.




1. Toy Story
2. The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of the Unicorn
3. Monsters University
4. The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
5. Wreck-It Ralph
6. Brave
7. The Jungle Book
8. Fear(s) Of The Dark
9. The Secret Of Kells
10. Frankenweenie

11. Arthur Christmas
12. Rise Of The Guardians
13. ParaNorman
14. Akira
15. A Cat In Paris
16. Paprika
17. Hotel Transylvania
18. Whisper Of The Heart
19. Rio
20 Ice Age 4: Continental Drift

21. The Lorax
22. Planet 51
23. Jackboots On Whitehall


1. Quiet Please!
2. For The Birds
3. So You Want To be A Pirate!
4. Partysaurus Rex
5.Get A Horse!
6. Small Fry
7. Cueball Cat
8. Blitz Wolf
9. Paperman
10. Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century
11. Tangled Ever After

12. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
13. The Blue Umbrella
14. La Luna
15. Alma
16. Gertie The Dinosaur
17. Dimanche
18. Wild Life
19. A Morning Stroll
20. Malice In Wonderland




Planet 51
The Blue Umbrella
TMNT
Watership Down
Plague Dogs
The legend Of Sleep Hollow
Mary and Max
Waltz With Bashir
Wall-E
Belleville Rendvous
King Size Canary
Burn-E
Frozen

Excellent! The last couple of years, I've become a big fan of animation too, so will be checking this thread with great interest.

I'd be interested to see how many NON Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks/Studio Ghibli efforts make the list...

Hopefully there'll be plenty that aren't the usual suspects, including a few from your list. The first one might well be a Ghibli film though. I can hardly contain my excitement (insert sarcastic smilie here)

The only things that are definite in this life are death, taxes and the fact that Gimli's opinions on Ghibli will be wrong.

I've become more of a fan of animation over the past few years. Looking forward to the list, and as always I'm sure you'll have some surprises in store for us.

I did say it's an ongoing thing. I haven't seen any animation since I started the thread.

The Pixar thread is going to get done, I promise.

1. Tangled Ever After


I'm sure the many, many haters of Tangled on here will be overjoyed to know that there's now a little bit more for them to moan about. I didn't even know that this short existed until it popped up as I was video-hopping on Youtube.

As a big fan of Tangled, it was almost guaranteed that I'd like this, and like it I did. It's the day of Rapunzel and Flynn's wedding but the focus is on the best characters from the film, Maximus and Pascal, as they race to retrieve the weddings rings that they manage to lose. It's a frenetic and fast-paced short, and one that may well appeal to those who disliked the main feature.

Is the whole thing on YouTube and do you have a link? I can't seem to find anything more than a few clips and dodgy camera phone vids.

The only one on YT now seems to be a shaky camera one but it's watchable enough if you want to have a look.

I doubt I'll bother with this. I thought Tangled was one of the most disappointing Disney animated features ever; soulless, dull and not even very funny. I haven't even got it on DVD yet, and I own all the others!

Just my opinion though, you'll have to put up with it.

There seems to be a very for and against tendency with Tangled. I was very much with you on how laboured it was.

I'm in the hate camp for Tangled as well. I think it's one of the worst animated features Disney have ever made. It's certainly the worst I've seen in a while, I can't even think of a comparably bad effort off the top of my head.

Lion King.

Princess and the Frog

All the sequels (Bambi, Little Mermaid, Jungle Book etc) and the Tinker Bells - Disney proper have come across like a busted flush for a very long time. No wonder they needed Pixar. If The Wild is Disney proper, then Nigel the Koala is the best thing they've done in nearly 2 decades + IMO.

It's times like this I need Swords as backup

Nigel the Koala was the only good thing about The Wild though. That film was such a huge disappointment.

Agreed about Princess and the Frog but Lion King? IMO that's the best thing they've ever done.

I think it's dreadful although, sadly, I seem to be in a minority on here.

I wouldn't say I hate the Lion King, but revisiting it as an adult did make me more aware of its short comings. I'd say the non Pixar Disney highlights of the past 20 odd years for me are Aladdin, Beauty and the Beat and Lilo and Stitch.

The first two I'd have outwith my timing as I do like them too. I'd forgotten about Lilo and Stich though - I'm fond of that. I liked some of the music in Hunchback too.

I saw Lion King as an adult. After enjoying the couple before it my only thought, really, was 'what is this shit'?

I've never been a huge fan of the Lion King, I think it's overrated. I wouldn't say it's 'dreadful' though.

I love The Lion King, but I do think Beauty And The Beast, while still quite good, is rather overrated.  It seems to be widely regarded as Disney's greatest achievement and just can't see why, for me it doesn't hold a candle to earlier fairytale efforts like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty!

There appears to be something up with the 's' key on my laptop, it's keeps sticking or missing stuff. Using all my detective skills I have deduced that it is down to crumbs in the key board.

Beauty and the Beat has songs written by Alan Ginsberg.
