1. An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991)
A Fairly good film in my mind at least, and certainly better than other sequels to Bluth films. I loved the main Villainous cat, I loved the desert imagery, and I will never get that rolin',rolin' rolin' rawhide! out of my head.

2. Tokyo Godfathers (2003)
It is rare for an anime to be a christnas movie, and even rarer for a Satoshi Kon film to have such a straightforward, nonsurreal story. All of his films are very good, this one included. It has characters there stand far apart from usual anime stereotypes, and are in fact, original by any stadards.

The animation is some of the best in japan, with far fewer keyframes and stills than is typical in an anime film. Good work, Mr. Kon. You will be sorely missed.

3. Perfect Blue (1997)
There is little to be said of this. a masterpiece is by nature hard to describe or define. This story requires some hard thinking to really understand, and because of that is not for everyone. A truely mindbending work, and possibly the magnum opus of one of my favourite directors.

4. Aladdin: The Return of Jafar (1994)
The animation quality is a little down since te original, but I find Jafar's return, the introduction of Abis Mahl, and the characterization of iago make up for that. Great film, though notto the same level as its predesessor.

5. Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1996)
Plenty of developement for aladin, a good deal of closure for the franchise as a whole, and we finally get to see the big wedding! Great movie, and great end to the story of a street rat who proved to be a daimond in the rough.

6. Aladdin (1992)
Possibly my favourite disney movie. Aladdin is likeable, Genie is hilarious, Jaffar is frightening,and the story just weaves these wonderful characters together beautifully.

7. The Secret of NIMH (1982)
An underrated classic if ever there was one. I only recently saw this movie, as a young adult, and had no real nostagliac feeling for it to influence me. Nonetheless it blew me away. Its a fantastically dark film without being too much for young children. Highly reccomended.

8. An American Tail (1986)
The tale of a little mouse who gets separated from his family when they immigate from Russia to America. The film makes a point to get as close to reunion as it can several times to tease the audience. Very emotional film, and a good example of how Don Bluth is actually capable of making good novies, contrary to overwhelming evidence against him.

9. Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004)
This one requres some backgroud, and is best viewed after the movie and the first series, at least. It deals with the major's partner, continuing police work after her supposed death. Section 9, taking on a daunting myustery, all the good stuff here. Just don't let it be your intro to ghost in the shell, unless you want to melt your brain.

10. Ghost in the Shell (1995)
The movie that launched a thousand mindfucks, folks. Deals deeply with the concepts of being, and asks you just where is the line between artificial intelligence and consciousness. The first time this incredable story hit the screen, and still among the best.

11. The Swan Princess (1994)
A really sweet romance, a princess, a prince, a curse, and some really pretty art. Always good.

Beautifully blends reatily with fantasy to create a moving story. Keep your wits about you, and you will have a grand time.

13. The Tigger Movie (2000)
Winnie the pooh is a great kids franchise, and tigger is my favourite character. He's funny, sweet, not too bright, but you c an't help but smile, watching him bounce around all hyper-like. Just like this movie.

14. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)
Its pooh. Pooh is always cutesy fun, and should be a stple for any child's collection.

15. Astro Boy (2009)
A great reimagining of the anime classic, bringing the question of "what is humna?" asked by Ghost in the shell down to a more child friendly level. Beautiful animation brings out the iconic art style of Ozamu Tezuka.

16. 5 Centimeters per Second (2007)
In Japan, Makoto Shinkai is the leader in creating beautiful, heartwrending romantic anime. This is no exception. A beautiful and crushing portrayal of young people trying to stay close as the passage of time rips them from one another inexorably. Have a tissue box and a signifigant other close at hand.

17. Osmosis Jones (2001)
Learning about anatomy and health is fun, especially when it involes one of the creepiestvillains ever animated, and a talking pill that remind me of buzz lighjtyear. Tells a story in both live action and animation, but keeps the two too separate from eachother.

18. Pokémon: The Movie 2000 (1999)
Pokemon is a phenomenon, and one of the largest reasons anime grew so popular in America. This,combined with the beautiful creature modles, and chosen one sort of plot, make this a great one to watch for pure entertaiment without thinking unduely much.

19. Steamboy (2004)
From the director of Akira and Metropolis comes this under rated little gem, featuring a young engineer who is chased for an item his grandfather discovered. I like how the credits really allude to a whole big story, and how this is really more expansive than it looks.

20. The Rugrats Movie (1998)
The rugrats are funny. They just are. They act a lot like real kids can. Troublesome, annoying, distructive, and worst of all impossible to hate or stay mad at.

21. Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003)
Adventure on the high sees, playing mix and match with old legends, almost none of which actually have a damn thing to do with sinbad's voyage. A blast to watch, nonetheless, with some impressive fight scenes throughout.

As a lover of animation in all forms, I feeling it wise to start on this list. If an animated film is close to my heart, and I feel it is great, this is where I'll put it. Items on this list range from children's films, to content most suited for adults. Notes will be added to entries periodically as I find time.
