The Secret of NIMH a classic childhood classic of mine; yes I owned and watched this movie often as a child through my VHS tape. However, my nostalgic value aside and my professional opinion towards movies today is The Secret of NIMH a good film or a great film? Well to point out the number one plus about this movie is that it was created by Don BLuth one of the greatest animation Directors of all... read more

This movie is possibly one of the best pieces of western animation, and also fairly under rated considering its quality. Directed by Don Bluth, a man who has a talent for making a great movie for every bomb he directs.

This movie scared me so much as a child and to this day it's still capable of that. But, I still love it no matter what and cry everytime I watch it. Usually, if it is on tv I will avoid it at all costs, it's just that emotional :/

Description: A fieldmouse named Mrs. Brisby must move her family to a safe location before the farmer plows the field where they live, but her invalid son Timmy cannot go outside due to his pneumonia. She enlists the aid of some highly intelligent, escaped lab rats that have built a subterranean society inside a rose bush near the farmer's garden. The rats, led by the wise Nicodemus, decide to help her physically move her house to repay a debt of gratitude to her late husband, who made possible the rats' escape from the laboratory.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: The great animation. Mrs. Brisby, and the Rats of NIMH. Music by Jerry Goldsmith and Paul Williams The overall environmental and others messages, all way before Ferngully, and other films. The fact, that the film can be decidedly dark and mature, even for a kids film. The voice acting. Con: The Secret of NIMH, might be too dark for younger audiences."

Why It’s Rated (604 movies items)

"Rated: G Why it’s rated: White it’s a film, for a younger audience the film can at times be intense. There is mouse child endangerment, frightening scenes, and some characters get killed off, and the film doesn’t shy away from it. That being said, The Secret of NIMH can be dark at times. "

Don Bluth's Masterpiece!

“I will confess I saw this for the first time today on YouTube, and I loved it. I always said that Anastasia and American Tail were the best of Bluth's movies, but I now think that this beats them both.The story is very dark and mysterious but magical all the same. The animation is just stunning, with beautiful backgrounds and excellent character animation. Brutus is a little frightening though, or his animation is, so is the scene with the great owl, which is inredibly haunting. The music by the wonderful late Jerry Goldsmith is phenomenal, very reminiscent of his score for the Eurpean version for Legend (the Ridley Scott film). The song I think it's called Flying Dreams is heart-rending, and just shows the talent the man had, and I am grateful that there weren't too many songs to interrup” read more

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"The great thing, about this film is doesn't go for the creeps, half way. No, it goes the full way, straight from the beginning. Characters are put in peril, the blood and deaths, even for a animated movie, are very much realistic, the bad guys are as menacing as all get, the baby mouse is near death, and as a kid, I wasn't ready for just how dark, and gritty, the film could get. The sequel? Now, that's a very different nightmare all together, one that may never recover from, after seeing the m"
