Favourite animated films

Recommended Posts

Algonquin Assassin

Hey guys.

 

Even though I'm in my late 20s I still like watching animated films so what are some of your favourites?

 

Today I picked up the 70th anniversary edition of Dumbo. I remember watching it all the time as a kid and it had been about 20 years since the last time I watched it. Watching it brought back so many childhood memories and even after all that time It felt like it hadn't been 20 years since the last time I saw it. Definitely one of my favourite childhood animated films. The Lion King is another I would love to try and find.

 

As for modern I quite like the Toy Story series, Wreck It Ralph, Hotel Transylvania, Cars 1/2, Monsters Inc/University etc.

 

Please share some of yours.:)

Well, I'm also in my late 20s, but I still watch animated movies once in a while.

 

Some of my favourite childhood movies are Aladdin, The Lion King, and later, The Prince of Egypt (it was epic). One thing I've always hated about these animated movies, is when they start singing. Don't know why they always have to sing. Anyway, I've watched every Pixar movie, and most of them are good like the Toy Story trilogy, Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E and Up (Hated Cars btw, it was stupid).

 

I also love the Shrek series, Kung Fu Panda, Ice Age, Rango and Spielberg's Tintin.

 

And of course I have to mention The Simpsons- as well as the four Futurama movies.

 

Can't think of anything else at the moment.

I can't believe I'm the first to mention Akira. I think it's the best animated film ever made.

If you count the lego movie, then that, it is kinda cartoony with live action thrown in.

 

If you're gonna be picky then basically amny things by Pixar, the shrek series and many things by old school Disney. Like Dumbo and Aladdin.

I did really enjoy Toy Story and Ice Age as a kid, though.

 

Not really into animated films now.

Just to bump this thread up again because it's been a couple of years since it was made, but I have some more to add that have since been released.

 

I really enjoyed Inside Out, The Secret Life Of Pets and I've just seen Trolls..

 

Trolls spoiler.

 

 

The scene with Poppy and Branch singing "True Colors" was one of the most touching scenes I've seen in an animated film since the ending of Toy Story 3. Such a beautiful song.

Damn I must be so jaded, I can't even remember any animated movie I really enjoyed. It doesn't help that most are made for kids and that always limits the contents and presentation.

 

So maybe I could mention something from the other front: Animal Farm (1954 version, I think). You know, based on Orwell's novel. Not a kids movie. I also remember watching Little Prince some two decades ago, tho I'm not sure what format it was (i.e. movie, short movie or series). I did love it at the time however, just like the book.

 

I suppose Madoka Magica could count too - while I like the TV show variant more, the movies are amazing as well.

 

I need to watch Watership Down one day.

you should make it a point to go out of your way and watch animated films.

the medium of animation has gotten a crude reputation as being something that caters to children but there's plenty of great animated movies that were made with mature storylines and adult viewers in mind. just do a quick search.

 

start shallow.

have you heard of Akira or Ghost in the Shell? Hollywood is about to remake Ghost in the Shell with a live-action cast and an American spin... but the original is a landmark, groundbreaking masterpiece of storytelling and effects with intensely philosophical themes. the same can be said of Akira albeit it's less philosophical and more apocalyptic.

Well, thanks for reminding me that one of these days I really have to finally see Inside Out.

 

My favorites though? Apart from the obvious answers other people in this thread have already mentioned, I could bring up the Asterix films. The first five movies or so are absolute classics.

It's not that I don't watch them, I do, sometimes. But the American production really is mostly for kids even though they try to mix it up somewhat (like the Pixar stuff) and thus I usually find it shallow. I mean, say, Wall-E had a really great premise but the movie itself just didn't fulfill its potential IMO.

 

And anime isn't generally my thing, at least not the movies. I understand why Ghost in the Shell or Akira are so legendary (at least GitS; seen Akira twice but can't remember any of it) but I still don't think they are half as good as Dark City for example. Maybe it they weren't condensed into movies I'd like them more since I think anime is at its best as 10+ hour series. Madoka Magica is among my favorite TV/movie works and I like the series more than the movie version. And there are other anime series I really like too, generally the more serious and less wacky ones.

 

Then again, Animatrix was the best of all things Matrix, but again, it felt like it had unfulfilled potential that could have been explored in longer series.

 

But I'm gonna check out Perfect Blue that was mentioned here.

 

The European stuff I've seen is too weird for me and the Russian ones... Yea, I'm too young to be that depressed, thanks.

never heard of any of those.

I guess you win the Ultimate Hipster challenge.

 

speaking of animated films for adults, has anyone ever seen Wizards?

 

 

this sh/t was released in the 70s.

and it's done in the style of Western animation (as opposed to the distinctive Japanime). it combines live-action footage and cinematography with the animated narrative. it's a very cool and very original concept in what was otherwise kind of a sea of conformity at the time.

My favorite animated movie would be End Of Evangelion. Obviously you wouldn't understand it if you haven't watched Eva, but if you did, then you would enjoy it.
Also, i really need to watch Akira...

If you guys don't know this guy, then I pity you:

Almost nobody mentioned Studio Ghibli and their amazing titles such as "Spirited Away", "Castle in the Sky" and "Princess Mononeko". Go watch these movies. They are a must watch before you die.

 

Well keeping aside Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki, we have another personality who just rocked box office last year with his movie "Your Name": Makoto Shinkai

 

He made few of my favorite anime movie such as "5 Centimeters Per Second" and "The Garden of Words". They are all Slice of Life and heartwarming. I won't say his movies are as complex as Ghost in Shell, etc but the beautiful animations themself are a treat to the eyes.

 

I personally like more Japanese Anime movies than Western Animations. They feel mature and at the same time give me tons of entertaining moments. But I still have some favourites such as "Toy Story", "Chicken Little" and "Ratatouille". You could even say Pixar is the Studio Ghibli of Hollywood for me.

I've heard of all of them - at least I think so, not sure which 'Winds of Change' you mean since there were tons of films with that name, I know of an old one from the 40's or so. Although I've never seen any of them.

 

Watership Down is pretty well known I think. This is one which I've planned to watch for the last decade or so but never have the nerve somehow. I know it's pretty upsetting so I don't know if I shall watch it when I'm depressed, or joly, or when I feel like watching something deep or something else. (I mentioned it in my first post so I'm not making it up :p)

 

Almost nobody mentioned Studio Ghibli and their amazing titles such as "Spirited Away", "Castle in the Sky" and "Princess Mononeko". Go watch these movies. They are a must watch before you die.
Those are some special movies. Spirited Away was my first ever DVD I bought with my own money (and it wasn't easy hunting it down at the time). Buuuut as special as it is, honestly I have to admit I don't like it all that much at the end. Something similar is going on with Mononoke. When I first saw it, I thought it's the best thing ever but I can't enjoy it all that much anymore. Not sure why that is. Tho I haven't seen it in a while, maybe I should take a look again.
As a side note, I watched The Wind Rises not long ago. That was quite nice though didn't make a lasting impression on me. In fact I was mistaking the plot with The Eternal Zero. Yea I'm stupid. It would be interesting how a combination of those 2 would pan out.

 

Your post made me remind one thing :

 

I HAVE TO FINISH MADOKA MAGICAAAAAAA

How can someone start watching Madoka Magica and not finish it?

I love animated films (and cartoons in general) too! Here are my faves

 

* So many Disney films... my standouts are Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan, Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen (as overplayed and over-saturated as it has become). I even have a huge soft spot for Pocahontas (gets shot), yeah it bent history over a table and had its way with it, but it looks and sounds amazing.

* Practically any Pixar film except the Cars ones, Brave and The Good Dinosaur (I can't speak on the latter two because I haven't seen them yet)

* The Iron Giant

* The Land Before Time

* The Prince of Egypt

* The Road to El Dorado

* Watership Down

* Shrek 1 and 2 and Puss in Boots

* Hotel Transylvania 1 and 2

* Chicken Run

* The Simpsons Movie

* The Secret Life of Pets (god does NYC look gorgeous in this movie, it made me want to fire up GTA IV, haha)

* Coraline

 

And of course, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Even after the Nolan trilogy (which I love love love), if this isn't the best Batman movie ever made, it's a worthy contender for the title.
