    Thumbs up Walt's best movies and Disney's best movies.

    What I mean with the title is to distinguish between movies produced by Walt and movies made after he died. Here we go:

    Walt's best feature-length movies:

    Animated: Pinocchio
    Live-Action: 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Sea
    Hybrid: Mary Poppins
    Nature: The Vanishing Prairie

    Disney's best feture-length movies:
    Animated The Lion King
    Live-Action Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
    Hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
    Nature Don't Know.

    What are your suggestions?

    I may not be the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, but I do shine.

    Texan by birth, Californian by choice.

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    Re: Walt's best movies and Disney's best movies.

    Howdy Not My Real Name,

    Well, now gosh, this question of yours is just plumb too hard for me...

    I love so many of those movies back when Walt was still around,

    SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS was packed with emotion...enchanting...unforgetable.
    PINOCCHIO...when Jiminy sang WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR...oh my Heavens...
    BAMBI..."Look...the water's stiff!"
    DUMBO..."The very thing that held you down is gonna carry you up, up, up!"
    the list just goes on and on...I love 'em all...PETER PAN..."All it takes is faith and trust...oh, and something I forgot...just a little bit of....well...you know.
    THE SWORD IN THE STONE..."You know boy, that love business is a pretty powerful thing..."
    CINDERELLA..."A Dream is a Wish your heart makes..."
    SLEEPING BEAUTY..."I just love Happy Endings."
    THE JUNGLE BOOK..."Look for the Bare Necessities
    and so many others...

    Live action?
    Those DAVY CROCKETT TV SHOWS...ZORRO...POLYANNA...SO DEAR TO MY HEART...RASCAL...SUMMER MAGIC...TOBY TYLER, FLUBBER...20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA...TREASURE ISLAND...OLD YELLER...WESTWARD HO THE WAGONS...I love'em all.

    Mixed Animation and Live action? SONG OF THE SOUTH, THE THREE CABAELLEROS, MARY POPPINS...

    And, to my way of thinkin' there have been some wonderful films after Walt...

    THE LITTLE MERMAID, THE LION KING, THE RESCUERS, ROBIN HOOD, THE FOX AND THE HOUND, THE ARISTOCATS, OLIVER AND COMPANY, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, POCAHONTAS, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, HERCULES, MULAN, TARZAN, ALADDIN, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, TANGLED...NOT TO MENTION ALL THOSE WONDERFUL PIXAR ONES...

    Nope. This one is way too tough for me. Sure brought back a lotta happy memories though...

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
    Nature Don't Know.

    What are your suggestions?
    my suggestions? definitely not Burton's Alice in Wonderland, lol. i thought it was terribly executive, the characters were awful, and the entire film was boring. i was waiting for it to end. but that's just my opinion ; )


    Walt's best feature-length movies:

    Animated: Pinocchio (i agree, beautiful achievement, but not my favorite)
    Live-Action: Swiss Family Robinson? i haven't seen many of Walt's live actions, but i remember enjoying SFR
    Hybrid: Mary Poppins (of course)
    Nature: don't remember which i've seen.

    Disney's best feture-length movies:
    Animated The Lion King (not my favorite, but their best achievement)
    Live-Action Honey, I Shrunk The Kids (too much fun, i enjoy it more than the Pirate films)
    Hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit
    Nature Oceans (The only one i've seen, lol)

    but if we're gonna go broader and more... adult, Disney, i'd say their best action film is Pulp Fiction. but my favorite is Kill Bill Vol. 1 (i guess it sort of counts as a hybrid? haha). what can i say? i love Tarantino : P
