- Up. The first 10 minutes of this film are as good as any movie ever made.
- Beauty and the Beast. Everything animation can be.
- Toy Story 1&2. Woody, Buzz and a new type of animation
- Sleeping Beauty. My favorite of the classic Disney movies. I still have nightmares about the queen turning into a dragon
- Incredibles. Superheros growing older, out of shape, with teenage kids who are, well, teenagers.
- Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. This classic created a new art form.
- Shrek 1 & 2. Ogres and and ass have never been so entertaining.
- Finding Nemo. Simply delightful
- Pinnochio. This classic story still remains fresh and vivid decades after its release
- Lion King. Majestic.

- Aladdin. Once we heard Robin Williams, we were no longer left with the image of Barbara Eden as the ultimate genie.
- Iron Giant. The animation is not breathtaking, but the story is classic.
- Wall-E. An unusual, risky movie that delights and amazes
- Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton's vision, and Santy Clause will never be the same.
- Ratatouille. A rat as a hero?
- Coraline. Fascinating, creepy, dark and entertaining
- How to Train Your Dragon. Exciting and just fun
- Lady and the Tramp. Maybe the sweetest Disney film, with one of the best villains in all of cinema
