Robin Hood was a good movie, yes. :3
Oh, I forgot to List the National Treasure movies! Those also take the top spot in my list along with Inspector Gadget. They were TOTALLY AWESOME! And Nicholas Cage rocks. Riley was the best character though. He's so funny!
"Why couldn't a girl see me do that?"
Let's see the Mulan where she wants to be a warrior in the beg.
Oh god Disney.... where do I begin? I was lucky enough to grow up in the Disney Renaissance so I was granted these incredible movies that stand the test of time. I haven't seen that much outside of that, apart from some of the older classics like Snow White and Cinderella as well as newer ones.
My top five would have to be.....
1. The Little Mermaid (yes, I am male.)
4. The Lion King
5. Probably a tie between Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and the Frog.
I just saw a little bit of Tarzan(kind of near the end until the channel was turned) yesterday, and I thought it was actually pretty good. As a kid I didn't watch that much of it because I got bored and then watched The Lion King. But, being older, I like it a lot better. I also love the songs in it.... Especially "You'll be in my Heart".
Case open, Case shut
I liked George of the Jungle way better than Tarzan...
Loved every single Disney animated films I had ever seen. I can't list them all, but my fav were definitely the Toy Story series along with other Pixar co-producted films.
Also, I liked all the Princess series. I have all the videos at home except for The Princess and the Frog and Tangled.
Though, if I have to say the one that left the strongest impression was The Great Mouse Detective. Seriously, that last battle inside Big Ben was excellently portrayed.
Of course, Lion King is pure awesomeness XDD
All you need is M-E-G-A-N-E
There are two National Treasure movies, you know. :P
I also agree that Atlantis was really good.
By the way, I looked up Inspector Gadget on the net, and now I can see why the movie got some bad reviews. But I still loved it. I did notice that it's darker than the cartoon, but hey, it's live action, so I expected that. I thought Dr. Claw killing a couple people (John Brown DID technically die in that car explosion) and playfully electrocuting Sykes made him more badass. I also loved the Gadgetmobile.
I think what fans failed to see is that the movie still has the charms that the cartoon has, like a clumsy Gadget, Penny and Brain actually doing a lot of the work (though alongside the Gadgetmobile this time), and Dr. Claw's famous lines like "I'll get you next time, Gadget! Next time!" It's what made me love it so much and why I thought Matthew Broderick fit the role of Gadget perfectly. He does humorous characters so awesomely (like the Genie in Aladdin).

I'm pretty much a fan of every Disney movie, though not as much for the live-action or CGI flicks (yes, that means Pixar) produced by Disney and their affliated partners. I have a soft spot for the more underrated/under-appreciated films, particularly the sequels. I am a big fan of their music as well (though, to be fair, I am a fan of most movie soundtracks). Most of my favorite movies are those from the 90's. My top films are, in no particular order:
The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea
The Lion King
The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
Cinderella III: A Twist In Time
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Princess and the Frog
Beauty and the Beast
The Black Cauldron
While I know Disney does now own Marvel, I don't consider the Marvel characters as Disney characters; therefore, I don't consider their movies actual Disney movies. When The Princess and the Frog came out, I was hoping that more animated movies like that would follow. But, instead, we keep getting Pixar movies and Tangled-esque CGI films (I do love the film; I just wish there was more old-school animated films instead). If they would come out with more films like these, I would be ecstatic.
I am, by no means, hating on Disney (don't bite the hand that feeds you and all that), but I really do wish they would get back to their roots and produce more old-school animated movies. It's all about CGI and live-action these days (Disney is not the only culprit in this, I know) and I am missing the style from the more "classic" films. I also miss the "old-school" music seen in the classics (compare the musical styles of movies like Tangled and The Lion King to the Pixar films). When the characters sing, rather than having the songs as background music for a montage-y scene, yes, it is less realistic, but it is also a part of the fantasy world that is supposed to be created by the movie.
All in all, I am very fond of both Disney movies and their music.
That is all.
This. So much. I remembered watching it as a kid and enjoying it. I recently found an old VHS tape of it when cleaning the house. I popped it in, seeing as I had some free time...
After an hour of trying to fix the tape after the VHS ate it, I gave up and found it on Youtube. My god, it was fantastic. I appreciate the film so much more now that I'm older. Why wasn't this movie more popular than it is?
Others that I like are Aladdin, The Lion King, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, and Bambi (there are opossums in it :D).
For songs, oh my. Too many to count.
I love opossums. They shall rule the world. Oh, and I should be more active now.
I remember watching Lion King when I was little, but was disappointed because it did not have the original Elton John music which I liked. I also had a lot of Disney specials like Halloween special and Fun and Fancy Free and some black-and-white cartoons, which I watched. I still got some of them on VHS. I've found a tape with Robin Hood, but it easily gets stuck in my vcr, so I have to be careful with it :)
Captain Lincoln Stern, you stand here accused of...
12 counts of murder in the first degree
14 counts of armed theft of Federation property
22 counts of piracy in high space
18 counts of fraud
37 counts of rape
and 1 moving violation....how do you plead?
Oh, I just remembered I never saw Bambi II. I always wanted to though.
I also realized that the Air Buddies movies are Disney. I think those are so cute. The puppies are ADORABLE! They even have cute names: B-Dawg, Buddha, Budderball, Rosebud, and Mudbud. I've seen Air Buddies, Snow Buddies, and Space Buddies, but I still need to see Spooky Buddies. They were all so CUTE though!
