The Great Animated Movie List

Oh whim, what hath you wrought upon me?

Over at  The Kawaii Menace I found a little meme dealing with what animated movies I had or had not seen.  As this was coupled with an arbitrary judgment of said films, I thought to myself “Cha-ching!  Easy blog post!”

Ha.

I cut-and-pasted the list I found over there, and should have left it at that, changing the answers to suit my opinions.  But nooooo I couldn’t do that.  As I’ve always found unnecessary work oh so delicious, I decided to split the whole thing up into pages.  And then I merged some of the categories together.  And then I made the lists into tables (taking care to delete most of the dates and a wee bit extra.   And then I alphabatized the movies.

Because I like to alphabetize.

By the time I started noticing little errors and missing movies in the list (The Princess and the Toad wasn’t with the Disney cartoons, for instance), I was tired of the project.  But as I did so much work on it already, I couldn’t quit.

So, after the more tag, we have the Great List of Animated Movies and whether I’ve seen them and liked them.  Halfassed and underthought.

A typical Welltun Cares Presents blog post, in other words…

The Princess and the Toad really should be up there, but as I haven’t seen it, it didn’t seem worth the effort of putting in there.  (Hey, I did the same with Avatar later…)

  1. Wow. Our tastes are so different it’s scary

    By the way, I like Graveyard of the Fireflies the way I like Schindler’s List – it’s a great movie, butI never care to see it again. Depressing.

      1. Fair enough. I kinda think I would, too, but you can’t deny that it is well made and well executed, no matter how utterly hopeless it it.

        On a completely different note, I think you should check out “Surf’s Up” – that’s the movie about the surfing penguins. The movie is done as a documentary, has clever writing, a few really great characters, and an amazing soundtrack. It kind of reminds me of “Endless Summer”. I really enjoyed it, and I think you might, too.
