I’ve just stumbled upon a complete ranking of all the Disney Classic/Disney Masterpiece animated features on Rotten Tomatoes, the film rating aggregator website. Supposedly they use some formula based on ratings from the site, box office performance, and I don’t know what else. Of course it goes without saying that a slew of people have left comments disagreeing with the ranking.
50 movies are included. Everything from the first full-length Disney feature, Snow White (1937), to the second-most recent, Tangled (2010). Not included are sequels (Aladdin: Return of Jafar), Pixar flicks (Toy Story), or any other Disney property that isn’t marketed through the Disney Masterpiece Collection label (or the Disney Classics Collection label until the mid-90s).
Anyway, no point in arguing about it. However, we happen to have been doing a fair bit of Disney viewing hereabouts of late. Thus, I will provide my own top-ten list, as follows:
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Princess and the Frog
- The Lion King
- The Little Mermaid
- Lady and the Tramp
- Alice in Wonderland
If you don’t like it, feel free to make your own list.
