The MoFo Top 100 Animated Films - The Countdown

The Wrong Trousers is too low, a masterpiece in animation in my eyes. Everything about it is perfect, great use of tricks and effects with stop motion, lighting, sounds etc. Great heist movie with awesome action sequences too.
I agree, it's too low but not through want of trying on my part, I had The Wrong Trousers at my number 1. It's perfect, it's fun and it was made a short walk from my house

I've always loved stop motion since seeing Ray Harryhausen's work when I was a kid. Claymation uses such a simple material, but seeing things like peoples fingerprints in a finished sequence is really endearing . Claymation films are deceptively simple but very clever. There's a very English homespun quality to Aardman Animations works that makes them a charming watch

I had Coraline as my number 23 , an effective creepy little film.



"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



Alice in Wonderland was on my list at NUMBER 12 , but if I were able to redo my list I think I would put it around 6 or so, maybe even challenging for a top 5 spot. It's definitely my favorite classic Disney movie of all time.

What I like about it most is the rich vibrant colors and everything that is brought life. It is on par with a film like Wizard of Oz and Spirited Away as far as the imagination of a film goes. Another thing, I seem to be a sucker for adventure films and this is a deep dark adventure indeed. Lewis Carrolls book is brought to the screen in the most imaginable way possible. I've read the book before, but the film is much trippy-ish, in my opinion.

As SC stated, the film has very interesting characters. First of, you have Alice herself, who is very interesting surely, but nearly every minor character is in some way fascinating to me. It's interesting that SC hated Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, because actually the Walrus and the Carpenter is one of my favorite parts of the film.


And in fact, that would be my favorite part of the film if I wasn't such a huge film of the Cheshire Cat. His parts are a hoot and a half. My favorite part is the following:
Cheshire Cat: Oh by the way, if you'd really like to know, he went that way.
Alice: who did?
Cheshire Cat: The White Rabbit
Alice: He did?
Cheshire Cat: He did what?
Alice: Went that way.
Cheshire: Who did?
Alice: the white rabbit
Cheshire: what rabbit?
Alice: but didn't you just say. I mean, oh dear.
Cheshire Cat: Can you stand on your head?



There's so much that I could truly say, I mean I love croquet too, I love the Mad Hatter and March Hare, but I'd be here all day talking about it. I love, "well! there goes Bill". I love the Monraths. Simply put, I thought this film really should have made the top 25. I doubt my low billing affected it that much, but hopefully it wasn't to close to a few of these next ones that are coming up. I'd like to see this one do well on the fifties list and well.



Master of My Domain
Rango was my 22nd.

I wish there were more animated films like Rango. It isn't afraid of adult fun such as massive gunfights and dark violence and is a perfect homage to many classic Westerns. The fast pace and hilarious, dynamic script kept me entertained from start to finish. When I first when to see this movie of course I didn't picture my description... and I loved that it didn't and totally caught me off guard in the best way possible.

Sadly it had lukewarm results at the box office (sort of obvious why...) so I don't think there will be a sequel which is disappointing.



Another childhood favorite I have not seen in years. I had Alice at 19.

1. Frozen
3. The Little Mermaid
4. Sleeping Beauty
5. Heavy Metal
11. Fantastic Planet
13. Bevis and Butthead Do America
19. Alice in Wonderland (1951)
21. Bambi
23. The Lady and the Tramp



Chappie doesn't like the real world
Woooo, I love you guys. Great to see this quite high up and especially good to see that a few of those votes seem to have come from my own constant mentioning of the film..
I had already seen it when I first read how much you liked it but I remember thinking anyone that likes Rango that much is alright in my book.

Reading Sexy and Raul's post about Alice makes me wish I hadn't cut it from my list. It was so difficult in deciding what to leave off and this is one of my regrets.

Snow White was my #13...


Saw The LEGO Movie with my Niece and Nephew and didn't think much of it. Was funny and I kinda enjoyed it, but was nowhere near the magnificent masterpiece it was made out to be. Held 100% on RT for ages and still sits at 96% and 4/5 on IMDb. I'd rate it around 85% myself (
in MoFo Popcorns).

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the 3rd of 4 childhood favorites to make the list, with the other sure to come. I had it at #13.

I liked The Lego Movie, but not nearly enough to consider for my list.

My list-

3. Rango
7. Animal Farm
11. The Plague Dogs
13. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
16. The Wind Rises
18. Charlotte's Web
19. Kung Fu Panda
20. A Town Called Panic
21. Fantastic Planet
24. The Adventures of Prince Achmed (Near miss)
25. How the Grinch Stole Christmas



Does this mean Akira broke the top 30!?! I certainly dont hope that it didnt make the list
It certainly will, if an abomination like Ghost in the Shell made it



Snow White is such an enduring favourite, in my family over four generations. My dad had to be carried out of the cinema back in 1940 cos he was scared of the witch, but still wanted to go back in. I've loved it, my kids have and now we gave the dvd to my 3 year old niece for Christmas and we watched it together.
I had it at number 12.



I gave Snow White 2 points and The Wrong Trousers 21. I don't see that there's anything special about The Lego Movie. I enjoy it enough to give it
but that's it. Rango, Coraline, Alice In Wonderland and Kiki are better but not so much better as to make my list.



Just like Alice, another classic from my childhood. Snow White was my 18.

1. Frozen
3. The Little Mermaid
4. Sleeping Beauty
5. Heavy Metal
11. Fantastic Planet
13. Bevis and Butthead Do America
18. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
19. Alice in Wonderland (1951)
21. Bambi
23. The Lady and the Tramp

Wait, what? You rate it 4.5 but "didn't think much of it"?

I was thinking the same thing. I gave it a 4/5, it made my list and will probably be in my top 10 of the year when I finalize it.
