MY TOP…20 Animated Movies

Animated movies are something that largely remind me of when I was younger and times were much simpler. My whole life was ahead of me and I could spend my days watching cartoons, playing in the park and playing with toys, what a time to be alive. As a kid I used to love the old Disney movies like The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Robin Hood and Sword in the Stone amongst others and during the 90’s there were vast improvements to animation and effects that not only featured in live action movies but animated movies also reaped the benefits of newer, modern technology. During my teenage years I did turn away from watching animated movies a little as I thought I was too old for them but as I entered my twenties I began watching some of the ones I missed and since being with my wife I’ve watched a great deal more as she’s a big fan of Disney and most things animated. In the last few years because of this I’ve found a new appreciation for this genre of film and I shall continue to try and watch more and more when the opportunity arises, except The Incredibles 2, I really didn’t like the first one and don’t understand the hype that surrounds the movie.

Anyway, here is a quick little list of my top 20 animated movies from over the years. There were a lot that could’ve easily found a place in there but just missed out. A lot of them are quite common choices I’d imagine and are many people’s favourites too but if you have a favourite animated movie that hasn’t made my list then please let me know and if I haven’t seen it I’ll try track it down and check it out.
