Secret of Nihm
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

My list would have all the usual suspects (Monsters Inc., Aladdin, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Chicken Run, Spirited Away)...

But the one bizarre wild-card would be the 1974 version of "Jack and the Beanstalk," written by Peter J. Solmo and directed by Gisaburo Sugii. If you saw it as a kid, it probably stayed with you. It's an acid-trip of a musical, in which Jack and his dog head up the beanstalk and deal with a witch and a giant, a royal family that's been turned into mice and a princess who's been put under a spell.

Freaky, fun stuff.

Are you talking about this or this?

I have the former and its companions on DVD, and I've always loved them.  They've diminished in appeal over the years though, as they're slow paced and the special effects leave a lot to be desired.  So if I ever become a successful filmmaker, I'd like to remake all seven of them as a sort of miniseries.  Kind of give them the LotR treatment.

But holy fleurking schnit, this just in:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363771/

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, scheduled for 2004.  Looks like someone beat me to the idea.

And me, if I had to list seven favorites, I'd say:
[list=1]
  • Waking Life
  • Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown!  (And don't come back!)
  • Robin Hood
  • Finding Nemo
  • Monsters, Inc.
  • Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown!
  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit[/list:o]

Seven picks is kinda tough....kinda arbitrary, eh? So after throwing that number away....

I love Pinnochio, Monsters Inc, The Little Mermaid, Robin Hood, Beauty And The Beast (as far as Disney goes), The Iron Giant, Princess Mononoke, Grave Of The Fireflies, Waking Life, Alice In Wonderland (I need to see more Svenkmeyer), The Secret Adventures Of Tom Thumb, and many more that I can't think of at the moment. Animated movies are so wide-reaching that they're hard to categorize together. I'm glad the Academy started the Best Animated feature category...now hopefully, last year's award is the beginning of a trend, and they'll actually continue to give the award to the BEST film, rather than the one that makes the most money. The fact that Waking Life wasn't even nominated in 2001 was infuriating. Jimmy Neutron? Please.
