Your favourite animated movie

Just saw "Up". My new favourite. The first 10 minutes is pretty intense for kids. Great story for an animiation.

What's your favourite?

I was blown away by Wall-E. What a kickass movie. I liked Up, too, but not as much as Wall-E. I've seen a buttload of animated movies over the past year and a half, ex boyfriend is an animation student. I have Wall-E on blu-ray, alas I does not has blu-ray player.

A part of me still really likes Fantasia (the original one, not the re-released 2000...thing.) I saw it when I was very young, and it was just so different from everything else.

I also like The Last Unicorn.

Latest one was Wall-E and it was very good.

My all time favorite is Watership Down. It's pretty much the Odyssey with rabbits. Beautifully done.

I also have a tape of the Plague Dogs. It's a dark depressing animation about Laboratory animals who escape.

I haven't seen the animated Watership Down because I loved the book so much. Maybe I'll have to check it out.

How can real life situations be to intense for kids?

watership down gave me nightmares.

and while flcl is made of awesome and a good sound track, it isn't a movie.
Akira is great, but if you read the manga first, it ruins it.

I really like the incredibles, there are a lot of small adult jokes you hopefully wouldnt pick up are a kid.

Me too!

and a +1 to the original Fantasia and Watership Down.

And my Christmas favorite, the 1966 animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Oh, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Hoe The Grinch Stole Christmas rates way up there for me as does Bakshi's Wizards and Heavy Metal.

Wall-E's awesome, i want to live in the back of a giant truck too.
I can watch it over and over and still find new little details and still be amazed
that it's computer generated and not live film.

Anyone see A Scanner Darkly? Any "Dickheads" here?
