What about the other Disney-movies?

It's impossible to include all Disney movies in my top-45, because the full-length features
would need their own chart. Many other Disney movies - especially The Aristocats* (1970),
Peter Pan* (1953), Cinderella* (1950), Sleeping Beauty* (1959), Robin Hood* (1973),
The Rescuers* (1977) and The Rescuers Down Under* (1991) - are thumbs-up worthy.

All Pixar movies are masterpieces and can be considered "safe blind buys". Cut Cars 2* (2011)
some slack. Yes, it's a dud by Pixar's standards, but it's not a bad movie.

I haven't seen Hercules* (1997), Mulan (1998) or Tarzan (1999).

Rather disappointing - but, don't get me wrong, they do have good parts - Pocahontas* (1995),
Dinosaur (2000) and all lame straight-to-video sequels. Best example : The Return Of Jafar*
(good story, sloppy execution).
