The Hunchback Of Notre Dame [DVD] [1996]
The Hunchback Of Notre Dame [DVD] [1996]
"Disney's bravest effort. This film is Dark (capital intended), deals with complex themes and deep characters and finishes of one of disney's most exhilarating final acts ever. Masterpiece."
Tarzan [DVD] [1999]

"Awesome animation, great action, a genuinely close adaptation of the edgar rice burrows novel (minus the racism and zoological mistakes) and Brian Blessed (Legend) as the bad guy."
The Fox and the Hound [DVD]
The Fox and the Hound [DVD]
"A film about the trials and tribulations facing the friendship of those who should be enemies. Plus for the first time ever Disney does a slightly less than happy ending."
The Rescuers Down Under [DVD] [1991]
The Rescuers Down Under [DVD] [1991]
"One of the best sequels ever made. Hillairious and heartwarming with lots of knowing nods to the original 1977 classic."

"Parents complained that this film was too scary. Kids love scary stuff just look at Grimm Fairy Tales, that's just the way it is. This is a lost 80's fantasy jem."

"A brilliant homage to Sir Conan Doyle's detective who shall not be named (in the film or here)."
The Emperor's New Groove [DVD] [2001]
The Emperor's New Groove [DVD] [2001]
"I'm glad Disney decided to scap the original 'Kingdom of the Sun' idea and instead went with this smaller more character driven story. It also is one of Disneys funniest films and a great buddy movie."
Atlantis - The Lost Empire [DVD] [2001]
Atlantis - The Lost Empire [DVD] [2001]
"An enjoyable action romp that borrows from Jules Verne and Arthur Conan Doyle. The most un-disney disney film the art style was actually inspired by Mike Mignola(creator of Hellboy)."
Treasure Planet [DVD] [2003]
Treasure Planet [DVD] [2003]
"This came out of the blue for me. I was really expecting this to be aweful but it's seriously an overlooked movie probably the most overlooked on the list. I'm gonna write a review to fully explain."
Meet The Robinsons [DVD]

"Another extremely overlooked disney movie. On the suface it ca seem a bit frenetic but this is a small yet emotive film about self affirmation."
Lilo and Stitch (Special Edition) [DVD] (2002)
Lilo and Stitch (Special Edition) [DVD] (2002)
"This film is simply wonderful. Disney seemed to shy away from the big musical affairs around the turn of the milleniem focusing on smaller, character driven stories and this is the best of them."
Hercules [DVD] [1997]
Hercules [DVD] [1997]
"The mix of Greek myth with Motown and Gospel music was simply inspired. This is funny and toe-tappingly addictive."

"Shia LaBeouf completely steals this film and thats a testiment to his skill because he is up against Sigourney Weaver and Jon Voight. fantastic story, twisting plot, great acting WATCH IT!"
Hocus Pocus [DVD] [1993]
Hocus Pocus [DVD] [1993]
"Great halloween fun. Brillianty grusome and cacklingly witty, with some great effects for an early ninties film it's Bette Midler who steals the show though."

The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata (Special 2-Disc Set) [DVD] [2004]
"An ingenious little idea. A retelling of the first film shot completely from Timon and Pumba's perspective. Not as epic in scope or as awe inspiring as the afformentioned movie but still entertaining."
Popeye [DVD]
Popeye [DVD]
"If you watch some of the old Popeye cartoons and then watch this you'll see what a loving and memorable tribute to them it really is. Robin Williams was the only choice to be Popeye."
