Pirates and Pixar new ones are good, but you can't be beat classics.

Aladdin is good.

I'm actually not a huge fan of the Lion King, but it's not bad either.

I am only a fan of old Disney movies... but not all of them. I like Mulan. I like Lion King.

Most of the new ones I dislike. They're all too happy for no reason. It's like their moral is "if you just exist, good things will happen."

No, I'm more of a fan of Musa:The Warrior, Hero, and The Banquet. They keep in theme with the fantastical (at least, the last two do), but their morals are far more pressing.

My girlfriend, who loves Disney movies, was interested in Musa because I told her it had a good ending. When the ending came, she looked over at me with shock in her face saying, "You lied to me."

I didn't lie. It does have a good ending, just not a happy ending.

And why the hell do chicks always love Disney and Hello Kitty, it's frightening?


I'm not trying to be funny or negatively stereotypical here, but Disney seems to be huge in the gay community as well. The main reason I say this is that I actually have a gay older brother who is absolutely fanatical about everything Disney, his friends are as well. He even has original animation cells from The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid which are actually pretty cool. Personally I have a lot of respect for the creators of the movies, although I am not a fan of musicals and such, I respect the talent that was necessary for them to be created.

Disney isn't as innocent as you would think them to be. They once made a movie called Songs of the South, were you see black slaves in the American South singing along happily while picking cotton. Talk about misrepresentation. The movie was made in the 1940's. It's famous claim to fame is the song "Zip a dee doo dah! Zip a dee day! My oh My What a Wonderful Day!

All horribly rascist movies aside my favorite Disney film is Toy Story and Alice in Wonderland. Alice was the queen of purple haze. You get what I mean.

Ranbir and I are in total agreeance assuming a lack of sarcasm.

I have watched the Lion King over 60 times.

I am not fond of many other Disney animations, to be truthful. I can't understand why some people are so obsessive over Disney.
