Shrek was original, funny.
A twist in the Fairy Tale lore and was a fun ride.


Shrek 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and the half million Christmas Specials and Sing-A-Longs are just a series of seeing how far they could milk it.
Shrek 2 is the better of the sequels etc, but not a patch on the first.

The Iron Giant was my number 18. I haven't seen it fully in a while, but I saw a bit of it recently and it reminded me of how great it is and why I loved it so much growing up. I remember I used to watch it repeatedly, and then draw images from the film, mainly the iron giant itself.

Shrek is okay. I thought it was decent when it came out, an interesting take on the fairy tale world. But I wouldn't really want to watch it again now.



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
The Iron Giant was my #9. It's a wonderful homage to '50s sci-fi and E.T. I loved it from the first minute I saw it the first time in the theatre. Some memories include "Strange Invaders!"; the raccoon and the zipper; the giant's eyes blinking above the trees; the "Duck and Cover" and "Brain from Planet Arous" tributes; the power station; the first time you see the hand; the hand in the bathroom; the car horn won't shut off; the cannonball - I'm going to stop before I blab about Bambi, tanks, nukes... Oops!

Shrek was fun but got axed before my list was finalized.

My prediction for the top 20

1. Princess Mononoke
2. Spirited Away
3. Toy Story
4. Toy Story 3
5. Toy Story 2
6. Up
7. Wall-E
8. Ratatouille
9. Beauty and the Beast
10. Lion King
11. Finding Nemo
12. Grave of the Fireflies
13. The Incredibles
14. Aladdin
15. My Neighbor Totoro
16. How to Train Your Dragon
17. Fantasia
18. Monsters Inc.
19. Nightmare Before Christmas
20. Fantastic Mr. Fox



I reckon that because of the large amount of users submitting a list, an American production will win, one of Toy Story, Up or WALL-E. I'm pretty sure that Spirited Away will be the highest foreign film.

Pleased to see The Iron Giant in there. I figured it would be showing up soon. I love Shrek but wasn't sure if it would make the Top 20 and alas it did not. Very eager to see what makes the final stretch.

I thought The Iron Giant made the bottom part of my list, but I just checked my notes and apparently it was cut in the last round of cuts. I loved the movie, and I'm thrilled to see that it made it this high on the list without my help.

I liked Shrek when I first saw it, but it didn't stand the test of time for me. I still like it, but not enough to make my list.





20. Fantasia - Voting Stats

Total Points: 339
Part of a Numeric Tie? No.
25 Votes: 1st Place (25 pts.), 2nd Place (24 pts.), Two 5th Place (21 pts. each), 6th Place (20 pts.), Three 8th Place (18 pts. each), Two 10th Place (16 pts. each), Two 11th Place (15 pts. each), Three 13th Place (13 pts. each), 14th Place (12 pts.), Three 16th Place (10 pts. each), 17th Place (9 pts.), 20th Place (6 pts.), Two 21st Place (5 pts. each), 22nd Place (4 pts.), 24th Place (2 pts.)



Since I love classical music, I should love Fantasia but I never did. I think's it's a good movie but it never wowed me for some reason. The Sorcerer's Apprentice segment is wroth a
but the others I thought were only a
or
.

I'll give Fantasia a
overall.



It was either that or be really late as I'm about to go out for like four or five hours.

Anyway, I enjoyed Fantasia a lot when I was a child, but I've not seen it in many years and it didn't get my vote. A little surprised it only made #20 though.
