    Post IGN: "The Top 25 Animated Movies of All-Time"

    Found this in another forum (thanks theocsummer ). It's a bit old, September 2005. From IGN:

    The Top 25 Animated Movies of All-Time
    We pick the best.
    by IGN FilmForce

    September 30, 2005 - Here at IGN FilmForce, we like to argue; not about who tracked mud through the kitchen, or which of the editors used all of the toilet paper in the men's room. We like to argue about movies… which is better than which and why. Unfortunately, after the umpteenth shouting match, the higher-ups decided it would be a whole lot cooler to put all of this arguing to some kind of positive use.

    Therefore, we came up with an exhaustive plan: we will rate the Top 25 movies for 13 genres in 13 weeks. Starting today, we will roll out a new genre each Friday until we have covered the most important categories of movies, beginning with Animation!

    The following editors took part in the endeavor, and their write-ups are indicated by the corresponding initials:

    - Brian Linder- Senior Editor, IGN FilmForce: BL
    - Brian Zoromski- Editor-in-Chief, IGN FilmForce: BZ
    - Chris Carle- Entertainment Editorial Manager: CC
    - Jeff Otto- Editor, IGN FilmForce: JO
    - Steven Horn- Publisher, IGN Entertainment: SH
    - Todd Gilchrist- Editor-in-Chief, IGN DVD: TG
    I will put here the complete list but by now you have to go to the link and discover it by yourselves.

    He doesn't seem to be coming back so here is the list:

    25. Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
    24. Pinocchio
    23. Bambi
    22. Princess Mononoke
    21. Fantasia
    20. Monsters, Inc.
    19. Metropolis
    18. Charlotte's Web
    17. Transformers: The Movie
    16. Grave of the Fireflies
    15. Dumbo
    14. Shrek
    13. The Lion King
    12. Toy Story
    11. The Little Mermaid
    10. Beauty and the Beast
    9. Aladdin
    8. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    7. The Incredibles
    6. Spirited Away
    5. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    4. Finding Nemo
    3. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut
    2. Iron Giant
    1. Toy Story 2

    Not sure I agree with a lot of this. I love South Park but how does it rank above The Lion King, a movie who's quality alone should have it in the top 5.

    I am not at all surprised to see Disney dominate the list. I am a little surprised though to not see movies like Akira or Ghost in the Shell. Heavy Metal might even qualify.
    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.

    I take it they weren't fans of films like

    Akira
    The Prince of Egypt
    Ghost in the Shell 1&2
    Steam Boy
    Howl's Moving Castle
    Ninja Scroll
    Mulan
    Perfect Blue



    The Nightmare Before Christmas and Lion king should be higher up the list as well.

    Also how did stuff like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Iron Giant make the list

    I totally agree. I love the movie to death but it does not deserve to be in the top 25 or maybe even the top 50.
