I would rate most of the first list higher than most from the second list. I believe what you are talking about is the homogenization of Disney movies into formulaic crappy musicals featuring saccharine, horrible plots and grandiose Elton John pop songs. Most of the egregious offenders are on the second list. Maybe you prefer that. I don't. I'd rather watch The Black Cauldron, The Rescuers, The Great Mouse Detective, The Sword in the Stone, The Aristocats, or Robin Hood than anything on that second list. +1 Didn't the post-'89 Disney films also signify the advent of wholly computer-animated work? It all began to look far too sleek and stylised for my liking. As I said in an earlier post, I'd take the scratchy hand-drawn animation of any the earlier films over the later ones (the CGI Pixar stuff is great though). I'm curious to see if this new Disney film (signifying a return to hand-drawn animation) looks different at more recent stuff.
