Animated films

Another list. Joe Carter selects "The 15 Best Animated Films." I've seen all but the last one [I own DVDs of eight of the fifteen - which I have bolded], and it's a good selection, although I might make a substitution or two - the original One Hundred One Dalmatians, for instance, instead of Mary Poppins, and I found The Lion King a bit too PC for my taste. Carter's "15 Best":
The fifteen, listed in order of release, are:
  1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
  2. Pinocchio (1940)
  3. Bambi (1942)
  4. Alice in Wonderland (1951)
  5. Peter Pan (1953)
  6. Mary Poppins (1964)
  7. The Jungle Book (1967)
  8. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
  9. The Lion King (1994)
  10. Toy Story (1995)
  11. Toy Story 2 (1999)
  12. Monsters Inc. (2001)
  13. Finding Nemo (2003)
  14. The Incredibles (2004)
  15. Cars (2006)
Honorable Mention: Wall-E (2008) / Up (2009)

Not surprisingly, all of the selections are from Disney and Pixar—the unrivaled masters of cinematic animation. .... [more]
Carter goes on to list just about every animated feature film made, indicating which ones he has seen. He has seen far more of them than I have, but, as a conservative, I would recommend to a conservative that he really ought to seek out the 1954 version of Animal Farm.
