Hello all! Well, when I saw Matt, Heather, Taylor, and ~Toonfreak do this meme, I knew Id have to do it as well, cuz .well .its fun! So nyeh!
As far as this meme goes, if I havent seen it all the way through, I probably have it on my checklist of movies to see. If I have seen it and didnt like/love it (or just have something positive to say on a whim), Ill type it out. And if I havent seen any of it, I either plan on seeing it or havent heard of it (if not, Ill type it out).
Oh, and now the massive number of stamps I've amassed (I know I should be ashamed....and I kinda am) are only on my ShoutBoard, because my journal can apparently only hold so much.
x - Seen
o - Partially seen
CLASSIC DISNEY Lord, its been a while since Ive seen some of these. I should get on that sometime! Anywho
[x] 101 Dalmatians (1961)
[x] Alice in Wonderland (1951)
[x] Bambi (1942)
[x] Cinderella (1950)
[x] Dumbo (1941) Like Matt, I think that calling the crow characters racist is being way too sensitive; especially considering how clever and helpful they are in the movie. Sure, the leader is named Jim Crow, and was voiced by a white guy, but come on
[x] Fantasia (1940) This one especially needs revisiting!
[x] Lady and the Tramp (1955)
[x] Mary Poppins (1964)
[x] Peter Pan (1953)
[x] Pinocchio (1940)
[x] Sleeping Beauty (1959)
[x] Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
[ ] Song of the South (1946) I havent seen it, but I stand with Matt on this issue too. Racism? Pah!
DISNEY'S DARK AGE This list is chock full of underrated classics, in my honest opinion, and I recommend all of em!.....Though, since Ive yet to see Petes Dragon, you may want to step lightly with that recommendation.
[x] The Aristocats (1970)
[x ] The Black Cauldron (1985) I love Don Bluth, but despite the disparaging things hes said about this movie, I think its a great addition to anyones movie library
.though I wont lie, it is pretty odd.
[x] The Fox and the Hound (1981) Man, ya wanna talk about your downer endings
.though, I dont feel as bad about it since I just read the last few strips of the webcomic Anders <3 Maria. Not entirely without hope/happiness, but its still a pretty sad ending
.er, sorry for the out-of-nowhere reference. Its just really fresh on my mind.
[x] The Great Mouse Detective (1986) Magnificentsimply magnificent.
[x] The Jungle Book (1967) Sure, its far gone from Kiplings original work, which I like as well, but considering this was more inspired by the written work rather than fully based on it (much like quite a few of Disneys other works), I find this entirely forgivable, since it has such characters as Bagheera, King Louie, Baloo, Shere Kahn, and the like. I mean, Tailspin wouldnt have come to be were it not for this movie!
[x] The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)
[x] Oliver and Company (1986) Yknow, out of all of these dark age movies, Im pretty sure this one has had the least amount of coverage since its release onto VHS, which is a shame, because I really think it deserves some good attention. It was one of my childhood favorites!
[ ] Pete's Dragon (1977)
[x] The Rescuers (1977) Despite the fact that, like the Nostalgia Critic, I prefer the sequel, this is still a worthwhile watch.
[x] Robin Hood (1973)
[x] The Sword In The Stone (1963) My friend Travis (yeah, one of my best friends is also named Travis. Weird, aint it?) favorite animated Disney movie, and while it may not hold that status with me, its still one I love.
THE DISNEY RENAISSANCE
[x] Aladdin (1992) Besides the Lion King, this is the only Disney animated movie that I enjoy both of the sequels and spin-off show of unanimously, as well as the original film itself.
[x] Beauty and the Beast (1991)
[x] A Goofy Movie (1995) To quote Matt, Goofy and Max. For an hour and a half. Whats not to love?
[x] Hercules (1997) I may not necessarily like the idea of portraying Hades as antagonistic/evil, but damn it, James Woods makes it work. Another classic.
[x] The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)
[x] The Lion King (1994) A big rip-off Kimba the White Lion? Quite possibly. Still a great movie with a direct-to-video sequel and midquel (as well as a spin-off series) that are good as well? Most definitely. I even got to see the stage production of this in London with my brother and grandparents in 02!
[x] The Little Mermaid (1989)
[x] Mulan (1998) I actually got to see this when it was in theaters, at Disney World. Awesome then, awesome now.
[x] Pocahontas (1995) - *shrugs* Not very big on this one (for various reasons, only some of which pertain to Pocahontas and John Smiths characterizations), but hey, the musics nice, and I found Wiggins (Ratcliffes dopey servant) amusing.
[x] The Rescuers Down Under (1990)
[x] Tarzan (1999)
DISNEY'S MODERN AGE With the exception of Dinosaur, if I havent seen or finished something in this group, I really want to
.though only somewhat for Chicken Little, Brother Bear, and Home on the Range.
[o] Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) I plan on finishing this one soon, cuz I definitely loved the parts I have seen.

[ ] The Princess and the Frog (2009)
[ ] Treasure Planet (2002)
[x] A Bug's Life (1998)
[o] Cars (2006) Not Pixars best work, but the parts Ive seen are goodand Im surprised at how non-obnoxious Mayter is, given who hes voiced by.
[x] Finding Nemo (2003)
[x] The Incredibles (2004)
[x] Monsters Inc. (2001)
[x] Ratatouille (2007)
[x] Toy Story (1995)

[x] All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)
[x] An American Tail (1986)
[x] An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991)
[ ] Anastasia (1997) Ive heard both good and bad things about this movie, but from what Ive seen, it captures my interest.
[ ] Bartok the Magnificent (1999) This interests me as well, given its the only sequel to a Don Bluth film that Don Bluth himself actually worked on.
[x] The Land Before Time (1988)
[x] The Pebble and the Penguin (1995) Sure, its cheesy and silly, but I loved it as a kid, and while I have yet to revisit it in full, there are a number of songs from it I have on my iPod.
[x] Rock-a-Doodle (1991)
[x] The Secret of NIMH (1982)
[x] Thumbelina (1994) Probably wouldnt hold up quite as well if I see it again, but if I ever do, I can at least rely on the charm of Gilbert Godfreid.
[ ] Titan AE (2000)
[ ] A Troll in Central Park (1994)
[o] The Adventures of Mark Twain (1986) Man, that bit with Satan still sends chills down my spine.
[x] Chicken Run (2000)
[x] Coraline (2009)
[o] Corpse Bride (2005) Dunno why I never finished this one. Ill get on that soon.
[x] James and the Giant Peach (1996)
[x] The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
[ ] The Puppetoon Movie (1987)
[ ] Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
CGI Updated with some more of Dreamworks stuff, with some other extras.
[x] Antz (1998) My advice? See A Bugs Life instead.
[ ] Bee Movie (2007)
[x] Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009) Saw this with my mom in theaters. Definitely a fun/amusing watch; way more so than the trailers would have you believe.
[x] Happy Feet (2006)
[x] Kung Fu Panda (2008)
[x] Madagascar (2005)
[o] Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa (2008) I know some people hate these movies and the spin-off show, but I actually like all three, and sooner or later I will get around to finishing this one.
[x] Monster House (2006)
[ ] Over the Hedge (2006) Probably not gonna watch this one.
[x] The Polar Express (2004)
[ ] Shark Tale (2004) Same as Over the Hedge.
[x] Shrek (2001)
[ ] Shrek 2 (2004) This sequel, I plan on seeing.
[ ] Shrek The Third (2007) This sequel? Not so much.
[ ] Star Wars: Clone Wars (2008) Not really wanting to see this one, but I do love the TV series that came after it.
[ ] Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)
[ ] Arabian Knight (aka The Thief and the Cobbler) (1995)
[ ] Back to Gaya (aka The Snurks) (2004)
[ ] The Last Unicorn (1982) This one intrigues me, especially considering it was animated in the same style as The Hobbit, which I love immensely.
[ ] Light Years (1988)
[x] The Triplets of Belleville (2003) A weird, wild ride of a film. I love it!
[ ] Persepolis (2007)
[ ] Planet 51 (2009)
[ ] Waltz With Bashir (2008)
[ ] Watership Down (1978)
[ ] When the Wind Blows (1988)
[ ] Yellow Submarine (1968)
STUDIO GHIBLI/MIYAZAKI Theres not one film on this list that I didnt love when I saw it, and if I havent seen it, you can bet I plan on seeing it
.except for Pom Poko. Giant tanuki testicles
[x] The Cat Returns (2002) A somewhat brief but ultimately fun fantasy romp, that is amplified a good bit if youre a cat lover like me.
[ ] Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
[x] Howl's Moving Castle (2004)
[x] Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)
[x] Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986)

[x] Porco Rosso (1992)
[x] Princess Mononoke (1999)
[x] Spirited Away (2002)
[x] Whisper of the Heart (1995) A bit slow-moving when compared to the other stuff on Ghiblis list, sure, but this film struck a special chord with me as someone who worries if my dream of being a writer will come to fruition and if my writer's block will be able to stop being such a hindrance.
[ ] Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea (2009)
[ ] Millennium Actress (2001)
[ ] Paprika (2006)
[ ] Perfect Blue (1999) Im kinda apprehensive about this one, but maybe on a day when I feel like seeing a psychological/sexual thriller, Ill rent it.
[x] Tokyo Godfathers (2003) This one, however, has my full backing. A comedic, touching masterpiece!
[ ] Memories (1995)
[ ] She and Her Cat (1999)
[ ] Voices of a Distant Star (2001)
[ ] The Place Promised in Our Early Days (2004)
[ ] 5 Centimeters per Second (2007)
OTHER ANIME FILMS

[ ] Appleseed: Ex Machina (2007)
[ ] Arcadia of My Youth (U.S. Title - Vengeance of the Space Pirate) (1982)
[o] Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2003) Love the series, but I never got around to finishing this. Someday
[ ] The Dagger of Kamui (U.S. Title - Revenge of the Ninja Warrior) (1985)
[ ] Dirty Pair: Project Eden (1987)
[o] End of Evangelion (1997) Same as Cowboy Bebop, though to a somewhat smaller extent.
[x] Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (1998) A nice finish to a great branch of the Gundam series.
[ ] Fist of the North Star (1986) You are already dead.
[ ] Galaxy Express 999 (1979)
[o] Ghost in the Shell (1996)
[ ] The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006)
[ ] Lensman (1984)
[ ] Macross: Do You Remember Love (U.S. Title - Clash of the Bionoids) (1984)
[o] Metropolis (2001) Definitely liked what I saw here. Kind of a mix between old style anime with newer artistic sensibilities.
[ ] Neo-Tokyo (1986)
[ ] Ninja Scroll (1993)
[ ] Origin: Spirits Of The Past (2006)
[ ] Patlabor the Movie (1989)

[ ] Sword of the Stranger (2007)
[ ] Unico and the Island of Magic (1983)
[ ] Urotsukidoji: The Movie (1987)
[x] Vampire Hunter D (1985) The novels/manga are better, but this is still a cool, fun anime trip through the post-apocalyptic/horror genre.
[ ] Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust (2000)
[ ] Wings of Honneamise: Royal Space Force (1987)
CARTOONS FOR GROWN-UPS
[ ] American Pop (1981)
[ ] The Animatrix (2003)
[ ] Beavis & Butthead Do America (1996)
[ ] Cool World (1992) I dont plan on seeing it, either, since I saw Marzgurl and Linkaras review of it. And for the record, Bakshis original premise for the film was thrown completely out the window in favor of a bad Who Framed Roger Rabbit knock-off plot, and the level of meddling/stupidity in the creation of this movie made Bakshi just say screw it, and instead focus entirely on helping with the animation instead.
[x] Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) Zzzzzzzz
[x] Final Fantasy: Advent Children (2005) Meh, sokay fer what it is. Couldve been much, much better though.
[x] Fire & Ice (1983)
[ ] Fritz the Cat (1972)
[x] Heavy Metal (1981) My opinion from the artists comments of this deviation still stands: [link]

[ ] Hey Good Lookin' (1982)
[ ] Lady Death (2004)

[ ] Street Fight (Coonskin) (1975)
[ ] Waking Life (2001)
OTHER ANIMATED MOVIES Like Matt, I think the categorization of this is a little screwy, but while Im doing this, Ill go ahead and add a few animated movies mself.
[ ] Animal Farm (1954)
[ ] Animalympics (1980)
[x] Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon The Movie (2007) Ordinarily Im against the whole random=funny idea some people like to support, but some of Adult Swims random and/or weird stuff still appeals to me, and this show and its movie are prime among them, alongside Squidbillies and Superjail.
[o] Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000) Im with Matt. Mark Hamills Joker for the win!
[x] The Brave Little Toaster (1988)
[ ] Bravestarr: The Movie (1988)
[x] Cats Don't Dance (1997) Cest fantastique!
[x] Care Bears: The Movie (1985)
[x] Charlotte's Web (1973)
[x] Fern Gully (1992) Preachy?.... yeah. Misguided?....somewhat. Still enjoy it, though.

[ ] Gobots: Battle of the Rock Lords (1986)
[ ] He-Man & She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword (1985)
[x] The Hobbit (1977) One of Rankin-Bass best, and still one of my favorite movies.
[x] The Iron Giant (1999)
[ ] Justice League: The New Frontier (2008)
[x] Lord of the Rings (1978) Cant say that I really like it, but I dont necessarily dislike it either.
[x] Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland (1992)
[ ] My Little Pony: The Movie (1986)
[x] Pink Floyd's The Wall (1982) My all-time favorite rock opera! Whoo!
[x] The Prince of Egypt (1998)
[o] Powerpuff Girls: The Movie (2002)
[o] Quest For Camelot (1999) Kinda neutral on this one. Moving on
[ ] Ringing Bell (1978)
[x] The Road to El Dorado (2000) A great, sadly underappreciated gem.
[x] Rock & Rule (1983) See Heavy Metal description.
[x] Space Jam (1996) I liked it when I was a kid, but Im pretty sure it wont hold up nearly as well if I watched it again.
[ ] Starchaser: The Legend of Orin (1985)
[ ] Superman: Doomsday (2007)
[x] The Swan Princess (1994) Pretty darn good, if memory serves.
[ ] Transformers: The Movie (1986)
[x] Wizards (1977)
[x] Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) - Aw, c'mon. What can I say that hasn't already been said about it? Just go see it if ya haven't already!
[ ] Wonder Woman (2009)
[x] Balto (1995) See The Road to El Dorado description.

[ ] Revolutionary Girl Utena (1999) Not in this lifetime, bucko.
[ ] Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie (2002)
[ ] Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003)
[x] The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) Bald! Bald! Bald! Bald!
[x] The Simpsons Movie (2007)
[x] Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
[x] The Incredible Mr. Limpet (1964) Havent seen this one in a long time, but while it may sound like a crazy premise (and it is), I will have to admit that Don Knotts (God rest his soul) does have sort of a
.fish-y look about him.
[ ] Flushed Away (2006)
[x] Were Back! A Dinosaurs Story (1993)
[x] Labyrinth of Flames (2000) A raunchy, goofy, fanservice-filled OVA classic (though thats just my opinion).
[x] Felidae (1995) A murder mystery (and a graphic one at that) with cats, that stands to date as Germanys most expensive animated feature. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but I enjoyed it, and was surprised at the competency in the English dubbing. If you get the chance to watch it, its up in separate parts on YouTube.
[ ] Turtles Forever (2009)
[ ] Joseph: King of Dreams (2000) One of the movies I couldnt care less about seeing.
[o] Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) Im not sure about my feelings on this one, but if I ever get the chance, Ill still finish it.
[x] Dexters Laboratory: Ego Trip (1999)

[x] Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown (1977)
[x] Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!!) (1980)
[x] Hey Arnold!: The Movie (2002)
[x] Party Wagon (2004) Loved this one. It sucks that this never got turned into a series. And whats more, they havent even released this on DVD! Whatta load.
And still, the Kingdom Hearts: Ending Credits jokes are below this entry. Sooner or later, I'll actually put them up as deviations again, only then I'll actually make the illustrations, so the DA admin. squad won't be on my case. 'Til then, enjoy! Or perhaps don't enjoy! And any pokes made at yaoi fangirls are purely aimed at the unreasonable blacksheep of said followings.
Sora: After the events in Kingdom Hearts, Sora went to Disney World. He was reported in saying, "Eh, I've seen it all before."
Riku: Riku was later committed into an insane asylum when he couldn't tell who was the real Riku between himself and his clone. (His condition is more commonly referred to as Peter Parker Syndrome.)
Kairi: Kairi and Sora's wedding was crashed by the Nobodies. However, they were driven out by the horrid music at the reception. (The hors duvres were pretty rank, too.)
Mickey: King Mickey and Queen Minnie were eventually overthrown by the Bougerousie and the Walking Brooms. (However, the Brooms were overthrown by Axel, who used the power of fire to his advantage.)
Goofy: Goofy eventually scored........Yeah, we won't get into that........(Said woman was never seen in public, EVER AGAIN.)
Donald: Nowadays, Donald plays as Hitler in historical reenactments of World War II. (Daisy usually plays as Eva Braun.)
Faux-Ansem: The fake Ansem was later revealed to be Maximillian Pegasus wearing spray-on tan.
Pete and Maleficent: Pete and Maleficent were eventually wed. Their children are as ugly as sin.
Xemnas: Xemnas later held George Lucas for ransom in exchange for another Star Wars movie. (In case you don't get it, this is a reference to his lightsaber-esque weapons.)
Xigbar: Xigbar went on to become president of the U.S.A., and became legendary for his gun safety laws. (After all, it's so much easier for him to shoot them if they can't shoot back.)
Xaldin: Xaldin's sideburns would one day conquer the Southern Hemisphere. (But hey, it's not like there are any important countries down there. Except Australia and New Zealand.)
Vexen: Vexen, being a mad scientist with nothing to do, made a game out of stirring up conflict between global warming believers and global warming deniers by putting out false scientific facts on both sides under two separate quack personas. (Support the environment, kids; but dont be afraid to do some research for yourself.)
Lexaeus: Lexaeus would be recorded as the first and last person to match power with Chuck Norris. (This title might've been taken by Mr. T, Super Mario, or Mr. Rogers, but all three were away at the time, doing a triple buddy comedy.)
Zexion: Zexion was later able to obtain a Death Note. You may be next. (So watch your step, punk! And don't even think of calling him emo!)
Saix: Saix was finally able to get a heart. Shortly afterwards, he died of cardiac arrest. (After all, that berserk mode can't be good for his blood pressure.)
Axel: Axel burned Axel/Roxas fangirls. He burned them to the friggin' ground. ("They're corpses stank of evil," he was quoted in saying.)
Demyx: Demyx went on to release his debut album, 'I have a heart. Really!'. It went platinum within hours. (His many musical fans find his mullet to be quite retro.)
Luxord: Luxord is currently hiding out in Guam in order to avoid massive gambling debts. (His current debts put even Tsunade to shame!)
Marluxia: Marluxia and Larxene got married, and currently have three kids. Those who believed him to be gay are still in denial. (If anybody dares call him a nancyboy, Larxene'll kick their ass to next Sunday!)
Larxene: Larxene later came to terms with her sadomasochism, making things very interesting for her and Marluxia. (After their honeymoon, she and Marluxia were on crutches for a month!)
Roxas: Roxas would go on to confront the public with the message, "I am not emo!" And, of course, no one believed him. (Another emo joke. Can't ya just smell the creativity?)
Squall: Squall later found his way back home. However, upon said arrival, he was beaten senseless by Zell, Quistis, and Irvine, who demanded to know why they didn't get cameos in Kingdom Hearts, too. (Rinoa, of course, just went into a pouting fit and refused to speak to Squall. However, thanks to Zell's clever planning, they managed to patch things up.)
Tifa and Aeris: Tifa and Aeris would have a match to the death to decide which of them would get Cloud. Once again, Aeris died a horrific death. (It was later revealed that Aeris had been dead the whole time, and was being controlled by Merlin's necromantic powers.)
Yuffie: Yuffie went on to have many undead ninja babies with Vincent Valentine. (She has a habit of flaunting them around Cid/Vincent fangirls, and then siccing them on them.)
Cloud: Cloud and his busty barmaid wife, Tifa, went on to settle down for a peaceful life in Midgar. But not before Tifa made him amputate that weird wing. ("I just wish it hadn't been Sephiroth who did the surgery," Cloud stated, wincing at the memory.)
Cid: Cid spends most of his time nowadays defending his wife Shera from angry hoardes of Cid/Vincent fangirls. ("Buncha f%#$in' idiots just don't get it," Cid said, wiping blood from his spear.)
And there you have it. Hope you enjoy!
