These kind of artikel are kinda passeé, but there's never anything wrong to do them once in a while. I'm excited for Moana, the songs, the characters sound so charming, and it feels like a genuine classic disney film of the 90s, very similar to Aladdin, which would make me happy.
So without further ado, here are my favorites.
10- Alice in Wonderland- It's so original, and I feel it's the only Alice in Wonderland adaptation that isn't a borefest. I think the captured of the book well, and it really helps how they showed the story in a lebih "visual" sense, while the book obviously relied lebih on language to describe the "wonder" of it all.
9- Hercules- I cinta it! Probably my favorit of the post Lion King films. I cinta all the winks and nods they make to the original greek myths, and the characters are really likable- Hades is charming, Hercules and Meg is my favorit disney girl bar none. I just cinta how an secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan simple woman had a lot of power and drove the story along, comparing she struggled against a cast of gods and demigods. The musik is also really catchy.
8- Fantasia / Fantasia 2000- Very beautiful, and the one thing that I feel disney was truly "original" on. The combination of classical musik with art is really creative and fitting, and I think modern film need a new Fantasia nowadays, since they're just way too play-safe and commercial for my liking. It's just gorgeous and easy to get immersed on.
7- The Little Mermaid- The one that started it all! Most people say every disney takes cues from Snow White, and while that is true, I think modern disney takes almost most of their elements out of this film- from the humor, to the characters, to the themes of "wanting" and the moving action/third act structure...But TLM does it good, the characters all play well the parts the story needs. I can still watch it nowadays and not get tired of it.
6- The Nightmare Before Christmas- I feel this is one of the most "fairy-tallish" movie they've got, considering the timeless aspect the film has and the lack of budaya pop references and the like. The two main leads are very likable and it's easy to see why they became iconic (and their romance is natural and doesn't have unhealthy/abusive/creepy undertone, so I'm okay with people tagging them as "relationship goals").
I have to be in the right mood to watch this one, because otherwise it gets me very emotional, but secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan i think it's one of Walt's best. The animasi is absolutely fantastic and the musik really gels well with the movie without being a "musical" strictly speaking. It's a simple story, yeah, but sometimes a movie doesn't need to follow a big epic story to be good.
Of course, as a kid i was lebih into it but I still enjoy it. The animation, the music, the characters (well, not all, but Genie, Jafar, and Iago easily steal the show). it can be a little dated, but it's still super enjoyable.
3- Sleeping Beauty-
Beautiful. Easily the most stylized disney film ever, and i just can't get enough of its setting, ever since i was a kid i wanted to get lost in those woods and eerie castle. The climax is exciting and the musik is super enjoyable.
2- The jungle Book-
Yeah, not a film many would put on their puncak, atas 10s, but this is my daftar and I can do whatever I want with it, public perception be damned. :3
This one gets to me purely because of the characters. I just cinta them and how natural their interactions are. The jungle is also very nicely animated (for once the sketchy style fits the look of the movie) and the musik is very catchy. The remake was also pretty good, but I kinda wish the two films fused together into one complete version, since i felt what one lacked the other had it in spades.
1- Beauty and the Beast
Honestly it's perfect. The older i get the lebih I like it. From the memorable characters to the score and the layout of the castle, it's just wonderful to me.
Pinocchio- It's a very cute movie. The characters are all memorable and I like the scary atmosphere the film carries around itself. I feel modern audiences would enjoy it as much as when it came out in the 40s.
The Three Caballeros- It's probably not a very good movie in terms of plot, but the three main leads are adorable and some of my favorit ever. Jose and Panchito are just so adorable and enjoyable. I also think the musik is great and it's nice to see genuine latin american culture in a disney film, even if it's small. The film quickly shows how Brazilian and Mexican cultures are different, which is something most non-latinos don't get; they think all our cultures are the same just because we share the language and a little bit of history
The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh/Winnie the Pooh 2011-
I cinta these! The characters are all so adorable and memorable and I just cinta how calm and inviting the world they live in is, like I could live among these characters and just have a fine time.
The Great mouse Detective- Basil is a jerk, yeah, but anda gotta admire how smart and organized he is. There's just something that anda end up liking about him. And Vincent Price as the villain = WIN.
The Rescuers Down Under-
A worthy sequel that improves an underwhelming first film. Bernard and Bianca are big disney OTP of mine and Bianca's a great female character, smart and active and intelligent, and still mature and allowed to be feminine without being portrayed as a bimbo. The flying scenes are neat and the Australian landscape is beautiful.
Pocahontas- I feel conflicted about liking this movie, since I think it kinda stereotypes the native american community and it's kinda...awkward for disney to make a simple story out of a blood event in history. And besides that the dialogue is often simplistic at times. But besides that, the atmospheric elements are really good, the tense moments are very well paced, and the animasi is breathtaking. And almost all the songs are great! Usually when it comes to disney films with me they have one atau two I like but the rest are really blah. In here i think they work perfectly.
Tarzan- I need to watch it again, since my cinta for it has kinda lowered, being replaced oleh my new appreciation of Hercules, but it has its charm. The jungle is animated really beautifully and the musik is fantastic. I also like a lot Tarzan's relationship with his mother and Jane, where's an element of sweetness and genuine realness in both of them.
The Emperor's New Groove- It's so funny i can't help but cinta it. Kronk is great, and I like how, once again, we have lebih latin american culture, but for once they tampil a non-white culture without it being "stereotypical" like in other films (honorable chinese in Mulan, natural native americans in Poca...But otoh in Asia honor is highly valued so dunno here if disney was being stereotypical atau just paying respected attention to the culture...). i think anda could make this movie in another setting and it wouldn't change a thing.
Wreck It Ralph- My favorit of the New Era films, which i don't like it that much, since i feel they try too hard to mimic pixar instead of being lebih "Disney-ish", but WIR was good. It was clever, funny, and very original and creative. It's the one film i never get tired of rewatching of the revival, which isn't the same thing that happens with the other films (I've only seen PATF like...2 atau 3 times...Same as Frozen. And usually I have this OCD-ish attitude of rewatching disney films and usually not getting tired of them, so I might have problems with the Revival Era...). But WIR was good, yeah, really fun.
Toy Story 1 and 2- The first two are great since they're very creative, the jokes are funny and neither too childish atau raunchy, and the characters are memorable. I didn't like TS3 much since I felt it was just repetitive of the detik film and it manipulated the audiences' emotions into liking it. But the first two are gems.
The Incredibles- Really good, i wished it focused lebih on the family than Syndrome and Mr. Incredible but it's okay, the character interactions are really good and it left me wanting more. I'd like to see lebih ungu and Frozone in the sequel.
Brave- I don't get the hate for this movie. It might have flaws, but the lebih I watch it, the lebih I enjoy it. I like Merida a lot, her character growth and her design, and i cinta that for once a mother is diberikan an important role in a disney film instead of being dead atau passive. The animasi is also beautiful, especially the landscapes, and i'm down with the film tampilkan scottish culture like with the mythology and the musik (i just want culture in disney films. I'm tired of their films occurring in ambiguous settings barely tampilkan the culture, when it can be so fascinating to see- I really want a Japanese Princess movie, tbh. And set in ancient authentic Japan, and not the weird modern scifi/USA mix they got us in BH6)
I haven't seen many...Because they usually don't hold my attention, but i do like some of them.
Pirates of the Caribbean- The first one at least. it's a fun adventure, and i like how casual it is. I might be biased, since I like a lot the original ride, but there's just something about an old sea adventure that one can't resist.
Mary Poppins- This one is so charming! The musik is very timeless, and the message is very relevant to everyone regardless of the time (because bad parenting will always be a thing). And Mary is a great female character, smart and persuasive, stern but also having a soft side (her relationship with Bert, and also the whole reason she took of the kids in the first place)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?- anda just have to like this film. Funny, creative, mysterious, and it's just so nostalgic, anda can't help but be charmed oleh it.
