Just art.  Gets my vote for greatest animated film.

It looks amazing, but it doesn't work for me as a film.

It works as a piece of art at the most basic level for me.  The most transcendent thing to ever come out of that mega corporation.

I've always preferred Donald Duck to bland...bland Mickey!

In terms of animated shorts, I agree.  Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies was better than the Disney shorts.

Yes!

First half is pure magic and absolutely amazing, however, once they age it seems to lose all of that.  Never really cared much for that later half.  Certainly a great film overall, though.

Is it Tarkovsky's Empire Of The Sun?

 

Pretty much. Spielberg seemed to take a great deal of influence from this particular film, but I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.

For me it's the other way around, the first half is too sugary but the second is really really engaging, except for that love part... Ugh...

You guys are having a discussion about cartoons and didn't invite me? :(

And c'mon, we all know who the best Disney character really is.

Why not?

 

Admittedly, I've only seen it once. But after having had an audio cassette version as a child that terrified me so much that I kept skipping the beginning side B (where the mother is shot), when I finally watched the film a few years ago I found it lacking in story and poorly paced. There's a brief exciting sequence in the finale, but it's over before it really gets going. It didn't help that I found the songs too much on the cheesy side.

 

As a display of animation, it's of course gorgeous.

Wild Tales:

6 short stories about revenge and all of them were instantly immersive. Quite an achievement. I could easily watch another six. The one about the two drivers was probably the best one. Must check out what other movies this director has under his belt. 7/10

A lot of fun. That first scene on the airplane is hilarious!

You're not exactly alone. Donald Duck was always more popular back in the day because of his "hot-tempered personality".

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

 

I haven't seen most of the Harry Potter films in many years, but I always have had a faint memory that the earlier films have a warmer and more lighthearted tone than the later ones. I think I prefer the lighter tone, but we'll see when I watch the rest of them.

Everything is better when it's dark, moody and oppressive. It panders my desire to want to feel like a grown up.

 Harry Potter grows up and so do the movies. Some viewers can't relate to that.

 

Mostly the ones that haven't grown up themselves.

That Daffy Duck as Dick Tracy cartoon is one of my favorites ever.

Well, I thought you guys were only interested in CGI movies. Talking about CGI.  Now we finally can talk about the explosion. Remember that? That was the most impressive explosion I've ever seen. Not the explosion itself, of course, but the effect it has on people much further away. In fact, from a visual storytelling point of view, the whole direction was quite incredible.
