    Not sure if this is already a thread, but the question at hand is in the title.

    I consider 'Disney movies' its own category within the film library of Disney Studios. For me, 'Disney movies' are films produced by Walt Disney (like Pinocchio, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Old Yeller, and The Jungle Book) or films made after his lifetime that have the adventure / classic / fantasy spirit of those movies (like The Little Mermaid, Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen, and the 2016 Jungle Book).

    I tend to include in the 'Disney Studios' category (for examples) Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zootopia - too modern / parodying for me to really compare to the animated classics mentioned above. Certainly entertaining movies... Just have their own style.

    Anyway, as far as what my favorites are, here's my top ten in chronological order - will have to watch some others, specifically live-action...

    One Hundred and One Dalmatians
    The Aristocats
    (never seen it until I recently got Disney+... now LOVE this movie)
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Aladdin
    The Lion King
    Mulan
    Tarzan
    Lilo & Stitch
    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
    The Jungle Book
    (2016)

    *Fergin' love Zootopia as well

    By the way, I don't care what you consider a Disney movie. I'm not expecting anyone to answer using my criteria.

    I grew up with Disney renaissance so any of those, but if I had to narrow it down to just one it would be a toss up between Aladdin or Lion King.

    I'm torn on both Lone Ranger and John Carter, they got a lot right, but so much wrong.

    I was torn on John Carter - it suffers from structural issues, but not enough to make it a bad or mediocre movie. It's a good, albeit flawed, movie.

    Line Ranger on the other side I have no issues with. It's what the Pirates sequels wish they were and it's pretty much on par with Curse of the Black Pearl for me. A fun, ingenious adventure blockbuster with plenty of personality.

    It gets harder to meaningfully distinguish Disney films as they make acquisitions, but I guess it should be the Walt Disney Productions / Walt Disney Pictures films, minus Pixar. I'm pretty behind on my viewing, so I can't account for Zootopia, Moana, Frozen 2...

    1. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    2. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
    3. Bridge to Terabithia
    4. Enchanted
    5. Tangled
    6. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
    7. The Lion King
    8. The Little Mermaid
    9. Winnie the Pooh
    10. Big Hero 6
    11. The Adventures of Huck Finn
    12. The Princess and the Frog
    13. Frozen
    14. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    15. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    16. Maleficent
    17. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
    18. Peter Pan
    19. Oz the Great and Powerful
    20. Alice in Wonderland (animated)

    I'd say:
    Animated - Lion King
    Pixar - Toy Story 2
    Other - Pirates of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl, Muppets Christmas Carol

    Far too many to chose from but these are the ones I go back to time and again.

    I would say the POTC trilogy is my favorite thing Disney has done BY FAR. Stranger Tides and Tell No Tales don't have any relation to the original three for me at least.

    animated wise I would say:
    Zootopia
    Beauty and the Beast
    Wreck it Ralph?
    Tarzan

    In terms of animated films, I have basically a #1 and a #1A. Bambi and Fantasia. Both are the pinnacle of hand-drawn animation. Completely gorgeous works of art. Fantasia is one I never get tired of. Easily re-watchable. But it has no real story or anything. Bambi doesn't have a complex one either as it is just a journey about going through life, but there is far more of an emotional punch there whereas Fantasia has none. Forced to choose, I'd probably say Bambi is the better film, but they are really close. Far closer than the gap between #2 and #3 for my personal pleasure.

    Yeah, I felt they were both worth listing, cause like I said I do like them, they got allot right. And I am a fan of both properties. They just could have been so much better.
    Agree with you on John Carter.
    Lone Ranger, clearly they were going for recapturing the the Pirates feel and "magic" , same producer Bruckheimer/ Verbinski writers Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and of course showcasing Johnny Depp.
    Although in the end they ended up just clowning both main characters.
    Not sure it was the right for this property.
    The Dark and some ttrriippyy (supernatural?) elements were completley anachronistic, but ok, I rolled with those, seemed like a legit new take.
    Things like dragging Lone Range's head through Horse ****, mentally (yeah he just came off stupid) and literally. And Depp wearing a fake "Native American" nose, with a wacky fantasy-bird on his head, after going on how it's so respectful to the culture, just seemed laughable, not in a good way.
    The pay off, when they finally come together as heroes, and the over the top train sequence (actually many elements swiped from Legend of Zorro of all places) yet taken up to 100! With the William Tell Overture in full swing, was pure joy.
    Just getting there felt like a slog through way to much horse ****. :funny:

    Are you two talking about the same movie..., or?
