So are folks looking forward to The Princess and the Frog - Disney's return to traditional animation?

 

The movie already opened in exclusive engagements in NYC and LA and will be opening nationwide on Dec. 11th.

You won't be after working for them-especially if in animation.

Wow, this is tough.  OK, from the GOLDEN AGE, I would have to say PINOCCHIO.... I've always thought it was the best animated film of all time.  THe others (snow white, bambi) are all excellent and FANTASIA even deserves 'extra credit', but pinocchio.... WOW, that is the best.

 

PACKAGE FILMS, i would pick Melody Time.  I love the ONCE UPON A WINTERTIME segment.

 

form the 1950s, CINDERELLA.  Never liked Peter Pan in any variety.  Sleeping Beauty is nice... I like they way they incorporated the music from the ballet but the animation is flat..  CINDERELLA is really nice... .

 

1960s.... there's only one choice:  101 Dalmations (how could you not love a movie about cute little dogs!)

 

1970s.  no choice.  haven't seen these.

 

Pre-Renaissance: tough here.  bad period for disney.  GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE was "o.K."

 

Renaissance:  BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.. "Be my guest" knocked me out of my seat!

 

post renaissance: no choice.

 

LIVE ACTION WITH ANIMATION: Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  What a movie.  I saw it at the Ziegfeld in Manhattan when it opened.  Mr. Spielberg was standing at the exit door listening to comments as movie-goers were leaving.  a wonderful film from beginning to end.

 

no votes on the other categories.  they dont deserve to be called DISNEY films

Golden Age:
Not crazy about any of these, except maybe Pinnochio. 

50's:
Alice In Wonderland (1951)I liked the book and I think the Disney version of the movie is a pretty good interpretation. I will always love the "UnBirthday Song."
Peter Pan (1953) I like that they left Tinkerbell the murderous, jealous-hearted character she was in the book. So much personality! I hate that she's been made merely "mischevious" in the new cartoons. Bleah. And of course...the life of a pirate for me! Yaho! Yaho!
Sleeping Beauty (1959)This was the first movie I ever saw--I saw it in re-release in the early 70's and loved it. I was about 6 and it was my first exposure to a Disney princess. (As an adult, I find Maleficent a much more compelling character). I crack up at the drunken kings planning their children's future (in a children's movie!!?)and I appreciate the srtwork--very medieval tapestry-like--and the soundtrack is lovely.

60's:
The Jungle Book (1967) I love just about everything about this movie, but especially the music! Crazy, man!

70's:
The Aristocats (1970)Again with the soundtrack...

Pre-Renaissance:
The Black Cauldron (1985) I like this one becasue I liked the book.

Renaissance:
Beauty and the Beast (1991) Belle is smart and brave and -gasp!- she reads! Jerry Orbach and Angela Lansbury were wonderful.
Aladdin (1992) Non-stop laughs and fun. Maybe not entirely PC, but oh well.
The Lion King (1994) Hamlet on the Savannah, complete with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. What's not to like?

Live-action Films With Animation:
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)Weird and wonderful twist on film noir. Loved it!

Pixar:
Toy Story (1995) Another movie I love pretty much everything about. Good story, quoteable dialogue and scary villain (Sid!!!)
Monsters, Inc. (2001) Funny and fun. Adorable kid + big furry monsters (who are scared of her lol)=winning
The Incredibles (2004) I just loved the concept of this one--what happens to superheroes when they retire and try to settle down? Great soundtrack too.

Others:
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) Another weird and wonderful movie.
