Gimme 5: Your 5 Favorite Animated Flicks!

I chose the theme for this week’s Gimme 5! feature in honor of the release of Despicable Me,which stars the voices of Steve Carell, Jason Segal, Miranda Cosgrove and Kristin Wiig. The film opens nationwide today and as a fan of animated features, I remain very excited to see it.

The Pixar animated film Toy Story 3 was released on June 18th and has already made an astronomical $313 million at the box-office and is still steadily rising. In recent years, animated features have proven that they aren’t just for children anymore — with many showing more originality, intelligence and humor than most of the dreck that comes  out of Hollywood.

So for this week’s Gimme 5!….

5. Monsters, Inc. (2001)
4. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)
3. Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Now It’s Your Turn….

    I haven’t seen the old Disney classics in so long I’m not sure where I’d rate them. I have Pixar and Dreamworks on the brain right now. I’d have to list some modern flicks I think:

    5. Antz
    4. Animal Farm
    3. Ratatouille
    2. A Bug’s Life
    1. Finding Nemo

    • You should see some classic Disney, especially Fantasia, Dumbo and Snow White. Loved Ratatouille. Which AF – the older one or the newer, computer one? Love that story so much.
