Favorite Disney movie?
 
Strange question, but what Disney movie is your favorite, and why?

I must say that my favorite is absolutly The Little Mermaid. Just because it's soooo cute, and on the Danish version Ariels voice is so nice..

:D :rolleyes: :p

Disney movies make my teeth hurt.

Metallus 11-04-2003 06:06 PM

I think Rescuers Down Under was my favorite as a child. The lack of singing and dancing blew my mind!

I have the right to remain silent.

VampireNaomi 11-05-2003 07:48 AM

Alice in the Wonderworld, or whatever it is called in English. The insanity suits me so well!

JofaGuht 11-05-2003 10:32 PM

despite the fact disney put their name on them for complete sell-out uses having nothing to do with the productions whatsoever, give or take some merchandising (earning 51% of the earnings). I'm gonna have to go with every pixar movie ever made. Pixar is so hardcore!

............................................

Anyway, taking away all film money rants and going with pictures Disney did stuff with is, hands down, Fantasia.

Orca Wail 11-06-2003 02:19 PM

Disney keeps other people from making cartoon movies, hench forth, when a movie is labled "Animated", its seen as "Oh, God, another one!"

Fantasia? Come here! *gives Jofa a high five*:rolleyes: :D
And Lilo and Stitch, but only because I have a long list of personal jokes related to it that noone here would ever get and BLAH...

also, i think Lilo and Stitch is Disney's mockery of Iron Giant. Goddam they copy everyone...>:(

Ck 11-06-2003 05:38 PM

Aristo Cats Kicks Butt! lol

Jazhara7 11-06-2003 06:06 PM

Okay.

1. Lion King (I love this movie. I also went to the Muscial in Hamburg on my Birthday...It was GREAT!) and Pirates of the Carribean

2. ATLANTIS (Mea Culpa. I am an Atlantis freak) & That movie with the Inka King Cuzco that is turned into a Llama (Can somebody tell me the name in English? I only know that the translation of the title into german was completely wrong)

3. Monsters Inc.




Not necessarily in that order, but the Movies on Place one stay there.

POC! how could I forget! *Fantastic*

I think It was called the Emporer's New Groove, or something like that!

God, I sound like a right disney groupie

Dawidos 11-06-2003 08:18 PM

Lion King. The best Disney movie I have ever seen.

Thanks for the title. I think you are right. Sounds familiar anyway.

LoL, that's two Disney groupie now...

Just kidding...

JofaGuht 11-07-2003 08:48 PM

I did like Lilo and Stitch, mainly because of the voodoo kit...."they're just my friends.....they need to be punished." that and Lilo's all hardcore beatin everybody up. But I guess I just don't like elvis that much.

And let's not forget that Finding nemo has come out on DVD. Pixar is awesome.

I did like Road to Eldorado, I'm gonna have to say that that was the disney movie with the best dialogue. But, of course, they needed to sing.

The Kid I would have liked a lot, if it weren't for the mindf*cking paradoxes and giant plot holes.

Wide Awake was also pretty cool. But i think that was Shyamalan's flick.

Buti'm stickin' with Fantasia (But Snow White was very influencial in animating. One of the first flicks that used rotoscoping.)

scabb 11-08-2003 06:45 PM

Regardless of how evil a corporation is, or how much they butcher up stories and legends, the movies are always pretty cool.

Aladdin gets my vote, because the singing and dancing is all good. I also like Toy Story and The Nighmare Before Christmas, although the latter is technically Touchstone.

Hades from Hercules is cool. James Woods is a cool guy. I guess that legend was completely and utterly beaten into cute, but who says the original was definitive? There are usually several different versions of all the classic tales, and the most boring one is usually the most accurate. So let Disney have their fun.

JofaGuht 11-09-2003 01:02 AM

Well, Toy Story was technically Pixar.

I don't really mind when disney butchers fairy tales because, let's face it, so did the Grimm Brothers. But "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" was just a step too far. Bastardization of a brilliant tragedy.

I can't wait for Disney's Macbeth.

Orca Wail 11-09-2003 02:42 AM

Macbeth?

Hmm...
"Lets go staab Duncan! Lets go staab Ducan! Lets go staab Ducan, and get crowned as the king! Wheee!"

I read that the Lion King is really a bastardized version of Hamlet.

That makes me sick.

I wanna see Disney's "Frankenstien". heehee...

JofaGuht 11-09-2003 03:14 AM

Are you serious? Now that I think about it the stories are similar in a disney bastardization sort of way. Where did you read this? I gotta read. That is funny.

Orca Wail 11-10-2003 01:41 AM

Hamlet cliffnotes. It said something like "draws its base from Hamlet" and "it illuminates the orginal". I love Hamlet, so this fact both thrilled and enraged me.

Disney's Hunchback makes me phyicialy sick.
I don't like the orginal that much, but that was simply too much bastardness. Yuk.

Thank God in heaven they never did "Phantom of the Opera". If Disney ever got its rat(yes, rat. Mice are too nice)claws on my Erik...Erik....I...I...:hang1:

Well, perhaps not...;)

I like rats...

But I don't like Mickey Mouse (well, at the beginning he was funny, but now...).


I prefer reading Duck Comics. Especially by Don Rosa. He is great. He draws those tiny little details, and the stories are always greatly researched.
He would never draw a Mickey Mouse Comic.

Nightmare Before Christmas has only been published by Disney, I think it would be wrong to call it a "disney movie".

Mine would be: The sword in the stone(especially the dutch version, the voices are hilarious!)
Or The Lion King (of which I think the english version is better, which is mostly in any english movie)

Why would you post this question on a Grim Fandango Forum though?

scabb 11-12-2003 03:05 PM

The Lion King wasn't really based on Hamlet, although when they were drawing up the basic story they decided it was quite similar, and then made Scar into the Uncle as opposed to him being "some random lion".

I watched The Lion King yesterday and learned some things!
-> You must do exactly what your father does, anything else would be deviance!
-> You can't ever change, ever.
-> It's okay for lions to kill and eat things, but not hyenas.
-> Lions fight like girls
-> Rowan Atkinson has a beautiful singing voice.

Lagomorph01 11-12-2003 03:16 PM

Lion King based on hamlet, I didn't know about that...
I did know that they made it the brother because it would be better for the story, at least that's what they said in the making of... They didn't say anything about hamlet though.. And the Lion King went down in moviehistory as the first Disney movie that wasn't based on an allready existing story

Really? Here I am thinking I'm smart...oh, well...:rolleyes:

And...

>:( God i hate that double standard. I love hyenas. They made them gross scavengers in Lion King, but in reality, lions often steal the kills from hyenas!:confused:

The dinosaur fight in Fantasia is another example of this injustice...
...ANIMAL PREJUDICE! Lets go march...;)

Sallim 11-15-2003 06:00 PM

Jazhara7 11-15-2003 06:40 PM

I heard some mother talk to somebody on the phone, and she told when she showed the movie to her daughter when the daugther was younger. She said she had skipped the part where the Witch Ursula is killed, because she thought it might be too scary.

But then the daughter was scared, because she hadn't seen how Ursula had died. She thought the evil witch was still alive. She was scared of Ursula.


- :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Sallim 11-15-2003 08:57 PM

I just hate Ursula...maybe I was scared of her too.
I couldt remember that name for so long..
cant we talk about somethin else?^_^

Because this is Calavera Cafe - here we can talk about everything which is not related with Grim Fandango. I think that question about favourite movies would be better, but I'm not author of this topic :). I also want to say something. Disney has lost his glory, bacause his actual productions are schematic and boring. How long can we watch this same story ? Love, two persons (he and she,but different words) and of course happy end. Lion King had happy end too, but there was something special in it.

When I was in elementary school once, it was raining so we couldn't play outside. They made us watch "The Nightmare Before Christmas"(NBX), but the fat lady running the video had issuse with it. She skipped over every "offensive" scene (kidnapped Sandy claws, OgieBogie's song, Jack getting shot down,Sally sail out window,ect,ect,ect).

We only saw about 20 minutes of the movie.:lol:

PS NBX isn't a real Disney movie...when I visited the magical world at the age of nine (a fan even back then) I was angery--there was a ride and a booth for every damm movie disney ever made, but all they had for NBX was a small frame in MGM of twevle of Jack's puppet faces.:mad:
The dinosaur ride sucked too...
...good thing the place had roller coasters...;)

The Lion King too ? Have you seen this movie ?

Jazhara7 11-19-2003 06:03 PM

I remembered another favourite.

"MULAN"

...gosh, I LOVE the scene where she climbs the pole and shoots the arrow...

I nearly cry there. It is so great...


- :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Sallim 11-20-2003 04:21 AM

Even Lion King I dont like..its just to scary ! ;)

Jazhara7 11-21-2003 08:13 AM

Where do you think it is scary?


- :rolleyes: :eek: :rolleyes: :eek: :rolleyes: :eek: :rolleyes:

Susan 12-02-2003 05:09 AM

Beauty and the Beast
The Little Mermaid

Sanspoof 12-04-2003 07:25 PM

Favourite? Uh... when I was a kid I liked the Lion King. Actually, I bloody LOVED the Lion King. Especially the talking parrot bird thing (Can't remember his name...)!

Also, is the Nightmare Before Christmas (Tim Burton + Danny Elfman thankyouverymuch) a Disney film? I liked that too.

Jazhara7 12-06-2003 09:20 AM

I think his name was "Zazoo" I am not sure about the spelling, though...

Not technically, although Disney did publish it blah etc. But you should always always post about it as if it's a Disney film, just like all the Pixar flicks. Because they are.

Have you seen The Lion King II : Simba's Pride ? If yes, what do you think about it ? Better or worse than first part ?

Darth Eggplant 12-23-2003 12:45 PM

recent and live action would be

POTC (Pirates of the Carabbean)


touchstone (a division I think)
short Tim Burton animated movie

Vincent


recent animated would be

Finding nemo


older movies

not all of them, but most of them


oh and yes

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
