If it's animated, it's here. While Disney will surely end up dominating the list with its excellent work in the 80s and 90s, the list is not exclusive to them and features the work of artists from all over the world.

A mermaid princess makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land.

"Darling, it's better down where it's wetter."

This masterpiece is Disney's crowning achievement. It's the film that skyrocketed the company back to the top of the animated movie mountain and kept it there to this day. While it differs quite heavily from the source material, the story is excellent. I'm a fan of all things aquatic, so I was hooked from the start. The songs are outstanding and the best in all of Disney's catalogue.

Votes: 93,757 | Gross: $32.06M

"This will be my greatest performance."

For me, there is no animated movie more exciting than Disney's Robin Hood. It's pretty true to the original legend but puts a fun spin on it by delegating the roles to various animals that seem to match the personalities of their legendary counterparts, Robin being a fox because he's able to outwit everyone. The movie is hilarious and entertaining, especially the many battle scenes. The songs are infectious - there's even a part where the Sheriff is singing a song making a mockery of his ally simply because it's catchy. A favorite of mine since childhood, it's never gotten old.

This is a pretty terrific fantasy story but has a few moments that just don't make much sense plot-wise. Still, it's one of Disney's best and provides one really great song and a couple of funny ones. Robin Williams pretty much steals the show with his comical performance as the Genie.

These are some of the greatest scenes I could ever imagine set to some beautiful scores. Its only drawback is that there is no dialogue or central story line.

Votes: 10,673

As a kid, this freaked me out a little bit and even haunted me some nights. It's actually pretty well done as far as staying close to the original story. The animation falls apart in some places but is mostly consistent. The real catch here is the songs, which are terrific but too short or else played in the background where we can't hear them all too well. This was the film's strongest suit, and it needed to be played up better.

"Once upon a dream."

This is probably the most underrated Disney movie. It is one of the most beautifully drawn and has a climax that any guy would love, complete with a prince fighting goblins and a dragon. It's also quite funny, especially the parts featuring the fairies and Philip's father.

Don Bluth's best movie is a fantastic children's story, but the kid in me still loves it. The only thing this one is really missing is songs, but that's kind of an important thing to leave out considering just about every other movie on this list is chock full of them.

Votes: 2,993

Not quite on par with its predecessor (The Hobbit), this one is much darker and even pretty twisted at times. To be sure, it creeped me out as a child, though I did love the music and still do. It's a good interpretation of the book to be sure but feels a little off when presented as a direct sequel to The Hobbit. The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers are combined into one movie that comes between them but features animation so different that it is difficult to consider the three a trilogy.

I like the Transformers television series, but this movie seems to have too much that meets the eye. It seems like a battle is breaking out every 30 seconds, and tons of classic characters are killed off with a wave of the hand. Still, Optimus Prime vs. Megatron is awesome, as well as the shark world.

I stopped reading comics before Ultimate made its debut, so I missed out on some big story lines. From what I hear, Planet Hulk and its sequel were a few of the can't-miss moments. As far as I can tell, this movie did a pretty good job of bringing that story to life. Even though I'm not a fan of stories that have only a limited number of appearances by well-established characters, this one entertained me. It's just Gladiator with Hulk on an alien planet, but that kind of thing works.

This movie had both a good and a bad effect on the Hollywood version of Iron Man. It's clear the first Iron Man movie borrowed a lot from this movie, which turned out extremely well. Unfortunately, this movie also suggested it was fine to twist The Mandarin's origins around and probably had an impact on what happened in Iron Man 3. As a standalone, this one is pretty good until the last five minutes.

I'm a big fan of Greek mythology, and I feel like Disney did the Hercules story as much justice as possible while keeping it appealing to children. The songs weren't really up to Disney standards, but the action was about the best I've seen in one of their films, especially Hercules taking on my favorite mythical beast of all time, the hydra. This was fun but not groundbreaking.

"Which way did he go? Which way did he go?"

I love movies about dogs, but this one had some parts that were hard to watch. Still, the good scenes outweigh the bad, especially watching a couple go through pregnancy and the birth of a child from a dog's point of view.

Well, I guess this is the movie we have to thank for all the screw ups that have been made in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nick Fury is not black. End of story. And the Chitauri are just crap. Go with Skrulls, Kree or the Brood but not these clowns. You can see the effect this one had on the way all the mainstream movies have been produced thus far. Tons of scenes were pulled directly from this movie, including Captain America and Nick Fury in Times Square, Fury surprising Tony in his office and more.

This movie is basically a song and a snowman. Both of them are pretty good, but I don't really get what the fuss is about. This is not some masterpiece and clearly behind Disney's best offerings. Still, it looks fantastic, and that's all that matters to people nowadays.

Well, this is easily going to be the most adult-themed movie on this list. I mean, there is nudity, cursing and excessive violence. But, strangely, I'm not crazy about it. It comes off as more acid-induced than creative. People talk about the music, but you can barely hear it. Or maybe I just barely noticed it due to what was on the screen.

Far inferior to the other two Dragon Ball Z movies I've seen, this one just seemed to rip off one of the show's best story lines by having Saiyans come to Earth.

This was my introduction to Darkseid, and I have to say I came away disappointed. He's very much like Thanos only far too calm to come off as a huge threat. Otherwise, the Supergirl story line wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I liked the climactic battle at the farm, but everything that came before it just seemed to be a waste of time.

There's really nothing to miss by not seeing this one. It's clearly designed as a prequel to the Thor live action movie, but it doesn't even fit into that continuity correctly given what we know about the Frost Giants and Loki. It's not bad really, but they screwed up Algrim's character. Of course, even that doesn't make sense given the 2013 sequel to Thor. This movie is pretty pointless.

Aside from seeing how the graphic novel inspired Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, I don't really see much value in this film. Its primary focus is Jim Gordon and thus is boring to me before it even gets going. I don't really know why there was this need to rewrite Gordon as a badass because it comes off just as awkward as you might expect and completely unbelievable.
