Well, I have decided to write an article featuring my current top twenty classic movies. I have unusual tastes in some regards, so please don't flame me for those. My tastes in particular tend to be toward the early films made by Disney himself. I just want to write this article so I could talk about my all-time favorite classics!
#20- The Fox and the Hound
A really sad and bittersweet movie that has morals about society and also how friendship can survive in the toughest conditions. Still, I don't watch it that much because it is a real tearjerker...
I like this film in general because it empowers girls to do anything that boys can do. Mulan really stuns me about what she could do sometimes, and she is the type of character that can excite you. This film is great!
#18- The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Probably the darkest of all Disney films, the Hunchback of Notre Dame has plenty of morals about injustice and has one of the most complex villains of all. It also contains the kind-hearted but deformed Quasimodo and the principled gypsy Esmeralda. A good film to watch, but avoid it if you don't want to get depressed or moved.
#17- The Rescuers
Once again, another real tearjerker of a movie. The scenes of Penny at the orphanage are really touching. I don't watch this one too much either because it is also so sad...
#16- Oliver and Company
A nice film that if you ask me is quite underrated. This movie has both happy, upbeat elements (Dodger), but also features serious elements (Sykes). The animation isn't as nice here as in some of the other movies, but it is a fun movie.
#15- The Jungle Book
An upbeat, jolly film with a very bitersweet ending. This is an example of a film where the sidekicks do a lot of work to enhance the movie. This movie is very fun in general, but Shere Khan makes it scary in his parts.
This film is generally a really nice film. Robin Williams sure does his job of the Genie well and really enhances it, and I love all the Genie scenes. Aladdin is a very nice change from the usual Prince Charmings, as he is much more than a waltzer dancing for love.
#13- Peter Pan
Peter Pan is the type of film that you want to watch when you are nostalgic. The film is fun to watch, and is good at stretching your imagination. Very good to watch when you feel upset about anything, as your emotions can fly after you watch it.
#12- The Aristocats
This film is enjoyable in the same way that Oliver and Company is, and if you ask me, this is the most underrated Disney movie of all. The Aristocats is not one of the best classics out there if you ask me, but it is enjoyable and fun.
Pinocchio is a real coming of age story and it is interesting how Pinocchio turns from a immature little boy to saving his father and sacrificing his life for it. The film is very sad, but it is very beautiful too.
