All 56 Disney Animation Studios movies in order of my personal preference

A little more than three months ago, I started a massive blog marathon. The goal was to watch every Disney Animation Studios feature film ever in order of release and write a blog post about each and every one. Going into the project, I had previously seen 32 of the 56 movies, so a bit less than two thirds of them. Not only has the studio released more animated movies than any other animation studio, but Disney generally tries to have a higher standard. They generally try to make their movies timeless and not just for kids, but for all ages. With only a few exceptions here and there, you can tell that they at least tried. More often than not, they succeeded.

Here are all the Disney Animation Studios movies organized from my least favourite to my favourite. If it’s in the bottom 10, it gets a 5 word explanation as to why. No more, and no less. The rest of the bottom half gets one sentence. The majority of the top half gets two sentences. The top 10 each get a paragraph, and the top 3 get two paragraphs. With the exception of the bottom two, I can understand why someone would like all of these movies. Most of them have at least some sort of merit. Let’s get started.

Super Sons 7 review

In the previous issue of Super Sons, Superboy and Robin went out on a night of superheroing, only for Robin to ditch him later in the evening to head out with the Teen Titans. As much as Jon wanted to help out, he’s not a teenager yet, and Damien considers that reason enough that he can’t join the team. But then the Titans ran into a villain they really weren’t prepared for. Some clock dressed villain with time powers somehow turned Robin into an old man, which was kind of a hilarious way to end the previous issue.

X-Men Blue 9 review

As much as I’m not a fan of the way that Emma Frost went evil again, and as much as I really don’t care about the Secret Empire event, this current story arc keeps getting better and better with each issue. That’s not to say it’s great, but this comic could have been a lot worse.

Generations: Wolverine and All-New Wolverine review

Of all the Generations comics, this was the one I was looking forward to the most. For one, Laura and Logan never really spent enough time together in the comics. They were on an X-Force team together sure, but she never once appeared in any of his solo books, and he only made scattered appearances in hers. And now that Laura’s grown up and is starting to reach her potential, seeing the two of them work together just sounds awesome. It doesn’t hurt that Laura is my favourite X-men character.

Like the other Generations comics I’ve read so far, Laura’s somehow been transported back in time, to well before she and Logan ever met. The story entirely takes place in Japan, not long after Akiko, Logan’s adoptive daughter, was kidnapped. The comic starts off with Logan being overwhelmed by a large number of ninjas, being dragged toward the water (which could drown him). When things start to seem hopeless, Laura shows up and cuts him free. The two of them team up to take on the rest of the ninjas, and then start searching for Akiko together.

And I know that Amiko is what most people know her by, but Akiko was the original name, and that’s what she’s being called in this comic. Hence, I’ll call her Akiko.

Comics of August 16, 2017

I picked up 10 comics this week, 2 of them being extra-long. None of them are particularly special issues, so let’s skip the intro and get straight to them. Thankfully all of them were at least good, and half of them were great.

The comics I picked up this week include Generations: Wolverine and All-New Wolverine, Generation X 5, X-Men Blue 9, Star Wars Poe Dameron 18, The Mighty Thor 22, Star Wars 34, The Ultimates 2 100, Super Sons 7, I Hate Fairyland 15 and Superman 29. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Best Disney Villains

When you have an animation studio that’s been around since the 1930’s, and has released 56 feature films, you’re bound to have at least a few good villains. Whether it’s classic style Fairytale villains or the more modern, complex villain, Disney has quite the legacy. You’ve got several master manipulators. You’ve got schemers committing acts of treason. You’ve got powerful magical users that are meant to represent all that’s evil. And you’ve even got some very complex villains used to explore surprisingly dark themes for a family film. Unfortunately Disney hasn’t given us too many good villains in the last decade. Instead, they’ve given us a bunch of last minute plot twist villains, most of which are underdeveloped. Although two early Disney Revival villains did make this list.

Although I’m titling this post as the best Disney Villains, this is more in personal taste. And like my Favourite Disney Songs list, there will be some honorable mentions first. So let’s get started.

My Favourite Disney songs

Unlike my previous Disney post, Best Disney Princesses, this one is all about my personal taste. That’s why I’m calling it my favourite Disney songs, and not the greatest. With that said, most of these are strong contenders for the best Disney songs in history. Also some of my Disney posts have been a bit long, so let’s try to keep this post relatively short.

My main rule is there can only be one song per movie. Otherwise this list would be completely dominated by the 90’s. In fact it’s kind of dominated by the 90’s as it is. This rule includes both the honorable mentions and the dishonorable mentions. You’re not going to see both Frozen’s “Let It Go” on the top 10 list and “Fixer Upper” on my dishonorable mentions list, as tempted as I am to mention both.
