Your opinion matters! (Not as much as mine, but still!)

Hey guys.

So as you all know the Frozen review has just gone up, meaning that this two year long journey is very nearly at an end until a few months from now when Big Hero Six comes out, because I’ll be doing this until the day I die, let’s face it. Anyway, I’ll be posting up a big stonking rankings list where you can see exactly how each movie fared. This is how we have fun in the future, because the internet has turned us all mildly autistic. Anyway, for the big wrap up I want to hear from you. What is YOUR favourite Disney canon movie? Clicky doos below…

Also, you can vote for your favourite Unshaved Mouse review HERE (the poll is too big to fit in a blog post, sorry).


      1. Sleeping Beauty…not that it is not liked, but I think few people would give it the number one spot. But I really dig the animation. And Maleficent. And the use of the music. But above all, it is a true “one of a kind” movie. There is nothing like it, nor will there ever be.

  1. Awesome! Btw, what are your thoughts about Big Hero Six? I mean, I DID travelled back in time, but I didn’t go to the future yet, I’m guessing everything will be more expensive and I don’t have that much money.

    1. I know! Asking me to finally choose my very favorite Disney movie (instead of “these are my five favorites in no particular order) is haaaaaaard!

      #First World Problems. 🙂

    2. If it’s a question of villain awesome, Hades trumps Shere KHANNNNNNNN! by a fraction. If we’re going by minor characters, Jungle Book wins. By mains, I’d go with Jungle Book… so I guess JB would win.

  2. It may sound a bit cliche, but the Lion King will always be my favorite Disney film, and one of my favorite films of all time. There’s just something beautiful about this film that always makes me come back, is it the well-developed, likable protagonist? Is it the memorable, diabolical villain? Is it the animation? Is it the songs? Is it the fantastic supporting cast? The answer: All of the above, this movie rocks and will always be a beautiful piece of cinematic art for me. 🙂

    1. And yet the Black Cauldron and Three Cabileros buttons remained unscathed. And they both have the Devil! (not the good Fantasia one)

  3. Voted! Favorite canon film: BATB. Can’t help it. Love the characters, music, story, storytelling, theme, animation, the whole enchilada!
    However, I can’t help but take offense to your autism joke, since I know some people who are autistic.

  4. Gotta go with Beauty and the Beast. By the way, fun story regarding it that I don’t believe I’ve shared before. So my high school theater director was Belle in the National tour of Beauty and the Beast, and her husband was Gaston at the same time. Well one of my earliest memories is of seeing Beauty and the Beast when I was like 2 and it played at the Pantages Theater in LA. And as far as I can tell, my future theater director and her husband were Belle and Gaston in the production that we saw. Pretty awesome coincidence, right?

    1. That is really cool. What I find weird is that the Frozen/Tangled debate is playing out a lot like the Little Mermaid/Beauty and the Beast debate instead that this time I’m on a different side.

      1. You and I swapped sides I guess. That is really funny, now that I think about it, I do sort of feel about Frozen how you feel about Beauty and the Beast. And you seem to feel about Frozen how I feel about BATB. Weird

      2. I would actually compare Frozen much more to Lion King – both movies have gorgeous animation, great soundtracks, but are honestly lacking in the plot/characters department.

    1. @werothegreat, I don’t see that, how is Lion King lacking in the story department? No, it’s not the most complex of stories, but it’s very well told and there’s little to no gaping plot holes and as characters go, the supporting cast do fine and Simba is one of the canon’s most sympathetic and well developed leads, he starts off arrogant and rash and wanting to be a king, but then later, doesn’t want to be king and is running away from his past, but finally he steps up and faces Scar and the hyenas head on, he goes through a compelling arc in my eyes, but to each his own, I guess.

  5. Despite my user name, I didn’t try to vote for Dinosaur. i made my opinion of that film pretty clear on my own blog (plug). It was hard, I truly love a good third of these movies and enjoy another third. But in the end, I picked Tarzan. Can’t go wrong with that animation.

  6. Long-term silent reader here. I’m sad the Disney reviews are over, but I just wanted to chime in to say that my favorite Disney film has always been The Little Mermaid. The music, the characters, the story, voice acting, iconic scenes–just everything about that film works for me on every level.
    It -is- odd how Tangled and Frozen feel like TLM and B&tB, except switched sides. I’ve always preferred TLM to B&tB and now Frozen to Tangled. I enjoy B&tB a lot more than Tangled though.

  7. Oh, man! So hard to choose just one, but I guess I’ll go with The Jungle Book. It really is my all-time favorite. I guess it’s a matter of personal taste, but I just can’t believe anyone would choose Hades over Shere Khan. Shere Khan is just striped, menacing, feline awesomeness! And I just love George Sanders’ voice!

  8. My six-year-old has had the same thing going on with The Lion King’s Be Prepared for a couple of months now. It’s getting to where I might want to actually arrange an intervention for him.

  9. Gooo Aladdin!

    When it came to the Unshaved Mouse reviews though, I was incredibly torn between The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. The Mermaid review will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first Mouse review I ever read. And it is a pretty cool way to be introduced to Mouse’s blog and writing. I just loved how long the review was and how you made no bones about your affection for Ariel and her film. (Most guys do).

    But at the end, the Aladdin review got my vote. Simply for this:

    “If anything, the fact that it’s so entertaining while breaking serious new ground in the field of animation makes it an even better film in my eyes. Look at it this way:
    Chocolate is great.
    Broccoli is good for you.
    But broccoli that tastes like chocolate CHANGES THE WORLD.”

    Touche. Perfectly sums up my thoughts about that wonderful, wonderful movie!

  10. It was a close call between Beauty and the Beast and Hunchback for me, but I chose Hunchback. I was also tempted to vote Sleeping Beauty. I seem to have a bias regarding Disney movies taking place in France…

    BTW Mouse, are you excited for The Book of Life?
