Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #38: The Owner of the Toys

Well, we’ve left the glorious age of the Disney Renaissance

It's ok! You may cry!

and are now in what I like to call, “The…Post-Disney Renaissance/Modern Age”. During this era, the animated Disney features would stop being nigh unanimous critical and commercial hits and would be like they were in the ’70s-’80s, i.e. some would be hits and others wouldn’t.

And today’s film not only showcases its post-Disney Renaissance quality, but also brings us back to the format of package films! Continue reading “Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #38: The Owner of the Toys”

My Top 13 Animated Movies That I Don’t Like, But Everyone Else Does

like_dislike

It’s that time again: “Top 13 Lists” time!

I really enjoy making these, although they take forever to make; but the best things in life require the most effort!

The other three sides are "Luck", "Gifts", and "Inheritance"!
The other three sides are “Luck”, “Gifts”, and “Inheritance”!

What’s the topic of today’s list? Well, you know how we all have that one movie or movies that everyone seems to love, like, or at least enjoy; but we just don’t like? Well, that’s the topic of this list!

Inspired by Doug Walker of “The Nostalgia Critic” fame,

A great film reviewer, although his character is a bit foulmouthed

this is “My Top 13 Animated Movies That I Don’t Like, But Everyone Else Does”!

I find it an interesting subject and should lead to a fun list! But, a few cautions before we proceed:

1) I find myself switching back and forth between opinions as much as one changes clothes. So this is my list as of late February 2013. I’m sure I’ll look back at this list in a few months and wonder why my #8 wasn’t #4 or my #2 wasn’t #10 or something like that! So just keep that in mind!

2) What do I mean when I say that everyone else loves these movies? Am I referring to what critics think of the films? Or am I referring to what the average moviegoer thinks of the film? Well, I kinda take both into consideration. These are all films that critics have generally given positive reviews for and the vast majority of audiences have displayed their liking for.

and 3) Are these listed by how much I hate them? Not really! I don’t think I really HATE any of these movies, but many of them I do feel a certain level of dislike for! But, the main factor in ranking these movies is the question, “How soon would I re-watch this film?”. So basically movies near the bottom of the list I would more soon re-watch as opposed to movies near the top of the list.

With that out of the way, I hope you enjoy this “Top 13” list! Why top 13? Because I’m not superstitious!

Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #3: All the Characters of “The Pastoral Symphony” Sequence

Ok, continuing on in my project, we arrive at Disney’s 1940 experiment and experience, “Fantasia!” Now, let me be clear about something: This is one of the Disney films that I did not grow up watching. I’ve only watched this film once and that was like last year when I was trying to watch all the films in the canon that I haven’t seen. And to be honest, I didn’t like this movie!
