It was just a joyless waste of time and energy. Nothing in it that was even remotely compelling or engaging.

Boring, flat and uninteresting.

I thought it was okay. It got better as it went on, but the first act of the film was so mundane and boring. It really felt like a step back to Disney princess films from way back, but without the charm and heart that made those films successful in their days. Thankfully the film does improve a lot on the way, but it does never manage to capture the Disney magic we've come to love.

A huge issue for me is that the songs, for the most part, fails to engage me and when such a huge part of the characters journey is told through the songs, I'm struggling to emotionally connect with the characters. The film is visually pleasant to look at and it does a few fun things with its mythology and giant sea creatures, but this is all on spectacle level and not on an emotional. So I will say that this is a film that probably someone else, and certainly young girls, will get more out of, but I just found it to be okay.

It's a wonderfully animated and delightful film with a lot of charm and humorous moments. It's a rather entertaining film, despite it using every familiar story beat that we've seen before.

But Big Hereo 6 is a film that relies a lot on Baymax. This is a character that delivers basically everything that's note-worthy in this film, and without him it would have been very average. Instead it's been elevated to good.

Mulan is another one of those diversified Disney princesses that Disney have a tendency to do now and then, and despite it playing on slightly more daring topics than some of the other Disney films, Mulan is at its core very formulaic. Not that there's anything wrong with that when it's done as well as Mulan is.

The story of this film is very simple, and it may lack the depth and level of ambition that one usually expects from Disney. Yet in its simplicity, Disney have managed to craft a really funny film that is carried by amusing characters hilariously interacting with each other and clever gags.

It's a plethora of fun, color and clever ideas. While it's overall message is a bit too hammered in for my taste, this was a film that continuously kept surprising me with one humorous scene after the other. It's fast-paced, well-told and structured and have enough memorable characters in it, for us to care and get emotionally invested. Quite simply a very entertaining piece of animation and a fine achievement by Disney.

Brother Bear should be at the very bottom, it didn't get much acclaim and considered to be Disney's weakest.
Posted: 7 years, 3 months ago at Jan 28 20:02
Even if people consider it to be Disney's weakest it doesn't mean I have to put it on the bottom of my list. This list is based on my opinion of the movies. Not what other people think.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Jun 28 18:35
Cool. I'd have Beauty and the Beast at the very top of my list, but the number 2 slot is acceptable ;)
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Jun 28 23:24
Good list.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Jun 29 8:20
Ah, you made me remember how much I loved 'The Great Mouse Detective' when I was younger!
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Jun 2 17:36
I need to see/resee some of these movies...

Great list!

Tarzan & Tangled were the best ones, animation-wise.
Posted: 4 years, 12 months ago at May 27 20:33
Personally, I think Beauty and the Beast was their best work. There was a time where I LOVED Lilo and Stitch, but after a while, it all petered out, but it's still high on my list.

@l8t3r: Compared to The Black Cauldron, Home On The Range, and Chicken Little, 3 of the truly reviled Disney films, I think Brother Bear might be more of a middle-tier Disney film, with the other 3 I mentioned in the bottom tier.

So let me get this straight; this is a list of Disney animated movies, am I right?
And this is a list of all the ones you watched/remember watching, am I right?
So if they're animated, that rules out Mary Poppins, Bedknobs & Broomsticks, Song Of The South and Fantasia.
Speaking of Fantasia, yeah I know, it's considered animated, though not many people are aware of the fact that it ain't just animated, hence the orchestra - well at least a fifth of Fantasia is live-action. Still, if you consider it animated, I'd recommend Fantasia.
I agree with you on Pocahontas (although it's liberal, I never really enjoyed it)

that picture of Clopin and Frollo is hilarious!
