Animated Films

by Jonathan 7 Comments

I got this from Shaun Duke’s blog The World in the Satin Bag. His is a thoughtful blog about all kinds of stuff SF&F and beyond. Check it out.

I should preface this that I’m your average watcher of animated movies. That’s changing some as I have a soon-to-be 5-year-old and she’s starting to really get into full length animated movies.

Here goes.

All the animated movies in the world, sort of:

– X what you saw
– O what you haven’t finished/seen or saw sizable portions
– Bold what you loved
– Italicize what you disliked/hated
– Leave unchanged if neutral
