What with the Disney film Frozen becoming the biggest grossing animated film of all time, i want to know what your favourite animated films are. Triditional hand drawn, CGI and/or Stop motion. Any country, any decade, family friendly or adults only, doesn't matter :)

Some of my favourites

The lion king
Toy story
Watership down
Kiki's delivery service
The fox and the hound
The nightmare before christmas
Wall E

Dumbo !!! Love that film so much. Black Cauldron & Alice in Wonderland prob next favourite Disney. Though add to that pretty much any other disney film :) I really REALLY cannot understand why Frozen gets raved about so much, I got so bored of it I turned it off after about 20 minutes. I tried to give it a chance, but the songs were bloody horrible and 3 plays of "Do you want to build a snowmaaaaan" in that first part and that was it. Off.
Pixar and Dreamworks, like nearly every animated thing they've each done.

Throw in a variety of anime & most of Studio Ghibli's works.

For (slightly) more grown-up animation, then Futurama's "Bender's Game" which I love as much as Dumbo. And quite liked the Family Guy take on Star Wars when I first saw them, but has been a while.
Resident Evil Degeneration and Damnation can get throw in too cos I am still a sucker for the Ressie films :D Final Fantasy VII Advent Children (attack of the game fandom again), which I prefer 100x over FF Spirits Within. And while on films of games, I will also add Dante's Inferno and the two Dead Space movies, Downfall (which I liked better) & Aftermath, to that.

There are no doubt a lot more.

I see your tastes in animated films is the opposite of your taste in horror films.

It's old before new in regards to animation but new before old in regards to horror.

I think a lot of my animated films are quite new =P
And animated movies don't age as badly as live action ones imo - they're timeless. Though I guess to people who are proper cartoon buffs, they can probably watch an old animation and be like "Fnah that's so 1940s" lol

I've really enjoyed every Ghibli film I've seen but Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Monoke are at the top.

Akira and Ghost in the Shell are two of my all time favourite films (anime or otherwise.) Would throw in Streetfighter 2: The Animated Movie. It's not deep but certainly the best game to film adaption I've ever seen. Metropolis is also well worth checking out.

advent children was a WTF film for me, i was onboard with it upto a point but when during the end sequence when all the characters started flying around the place swinging weapons that they would never be able to carry i just sighed.

why didnt they just do that during the beginning then it would ve been fine...

still need to open Resi Damnation, been sittting on my shelf for months now

I do have a soft spot for Spirited Away, I've got a perpetual calender (which they used to sell on here, but no more) that I found at a carboot for a quid when I lived in England. Was proper amazed to see it there, guy selling it had no idea what it was from :D

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Jul 2014, 13:14:42 BST
Might be a little leg pulling going on there Kev,I'm sure Chief knows full well who Barry Norman is,"and why not?"

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Jul 2014, 13:14:58 BST
Oh a film critic. Don't think I've ever read a review by a critic, don't tend to read reviews anyway as it's all just opinion at the end of the day. Never really seen the point in critics anyway, what's the deal "my opinion is better than anyone elses".

Posted on 9 Jul 2014, 13:20:39 BST
See Martin, she really didn't know who Barry norman is and i don't believe her, when she says she has never read a critics review =P

Ah well,you win some,you lose some,still hard to believe though,I was never much on critics either but Barry was something of a minor icon back then,he even had his own Spitting Image puppet back then as well as various other TV appearances,Morecambe and Wise "Nothin' Like A Dame" sketch involving several BBC presenters at the time for one.Also with only three or four TV channels to choose from,it would have been fairly difficult to not see him if only on trailer or preview adverts unless you were a hermit or a monk.

I used to stay up late during the school holidays just so i could catch Film(add the year) with Barry norman on a late monday night. Thats how sad a kid i was :)
