The Recobbled Cut, most obviously.

This film is a great example of executive meddling gone horribly wrong. Changing it from a supposed masterpiece by the great animator that brought you Who Framed Roger Rabbit to a shameful Disney knockoff is such an inexcusable disgrace.

It definitely deserves a proper restoration treatment. Hopefully, it will in the future, as it's better late than never.

It has gotten more recognition in the recent years. But it's still overlooked by the mass audience.

This is Don Bluth's magnum opus. In the 80's, he was the animator that was making money and not Disney, which he used to work for.

ParaNorman (2012)
Really, what's wrong with these people at IMDb that gave the movie a lower rating? This is a great movie that both entertains and challenges children. And it's also a delight for the adults.

This movie has tons of laughs and heart. It is also a love to letter to the Batman TV show with Adam West.

Shrek 2 (2004)
It was a box office hit. But it is better than the rating at IMDb is making it out to be.

Its rating at IMDb is a bit too low. It's good because it stayed true to the spirit of Charles Schulz rather than modernize it for today's audience. This would go down as Blue Sky's best work to date.

Finding Dory (2016)
Yeah, Finding Nemo was better. But I felt the IMDb rating for this movie is a bit too low. And unlike Cars 2 and Monsters University, it is at least a welcomed sequel.

It's better than a lot people give credit for. What makes it as good as the first movie were the better villain (voiced by Gary Oldman) and a surprisingly heartbreaking scene that had me shed some tears.

It is the weakest of the three, though. But it still delivers solid entertainment and decent conclusion of a trilogy, if that's really the final installment, which it should.

It was widely ignored when it was first released, but gathered a cult following in the early 90's, which led to two direct-to-video sequels being released in 1997 and 98. The film does feature some good music numbers like "City of Lights" and "Worthless". Some of the voice talents in the movie include the scene-stealing Jon Lovitz as Radio, original Tony the Tiger of Frosted Flakes voice actor Thurl Ravenscroft as Kirby the vacuum cleaner, and Phil Hartman in two roles.

This is easily DreamWorks' best 2D animated film. It's simply a much shorter and more concise version of The Ten Commandments. The movie also has more of focus on the brother relationship between Moses and Rameses, which is surprisingly touching.

It is the last movie to be released in the Packaged Era, where films have multiple segments due to the cut down production costs and World War II at the time. The film has The Wind in the Willows narrated by Basil Rathbone and the even better The Legend of Sleepy Hollow narrated by Bing Crosby.

The latter does have one of the scariest moments in a family film, which is scene with the Headless Horseman. It's a real shame that not many of them today would take that risk. Having a frightening moment or two in a children's movie is a good way to challenge them and would make them more courageous.

This is one of the very few good animated Disney movies released during the Bronze Era along with The Rescuers. It's also made by the same directing duo that later did The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog, and Moana. The film features both a likable hero and villain. Basil of Baker Street is basically the mouse version of Sherlock Holmes, and he even lives under his house. And of course, you have the great Vincent Price as Rattigan.

Even though it was released in the Disney Renaissance, it's not that much talked about and underperformed at the box office, mostly because of Home Alone. This is one of those rare Disney sequels (including Pixar) that is better than the original. It has more exciting action and a more menacing villain (voiced by George C. Scott).
