To me, Zootopia is a flawless animated film from the company that used to have a monopoly on the animation film industry. From the amazing chemistry and witty dialogue between Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde to the heavy underlying themes about prejudice, discrimination, and labeling others, whatever Zootopia sets out to achieve it does. The computer animation here is gorgeous with sprawling ecosystems, incredible animal designs (the fur on Hopps and Wilde look impressive on a 4K screen), and clever set designs for an urban area made for many different types and sizes of creatures. On surface level, without thinking too much about the themes, it also works as a crime/mystery film about Officer Hopps discovering why some animals seem to be going back to their "biological tendencies" whilst teaming up with an unlikely partner. Additionally, the moments where Hopps and Wilde's friendship gets hurt and repaired hit those Disney emotional beats that are sure to make you teary eyed then so heartwarming. Easily my favorite computer animated Disney feature and would rather watch than plenty of movies from the Renaissance era of animation - a must watch for sure!
The final animated feature that Walt Disney worked on before his passing makes this such a bitter-sweet film. It remains my favorite in the entire Disney animated collection of all time and for good reason. My favorite character in Disney history may just be Baloo the Bear with additional side characters being (once again) personal favorites. The songs here are very memorable for me with the bear necessities song being the stand out. To me this is a PERFECT animated film and it remains one of the oldest Disney classics I find myself rewatching more than others from the time period.
One of my personal favorites from the silver era and the Disney catalog as a whole, Alice in Wonderland has stunning twisted and weird visuals mixed with crazed characters that remain some of my all time supporting characters. The songs aren't as memorable as others which is my only main complaint but this is my kind of messy plot that put Alice through a curious journey to find out what this white rabbit is doing and then finds herself just wanting to go home. Along her journey she meets the Mad Hatter, March Hare, Caterpillar, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Red Queen, and the Cheshire Cat. As said before some of these are my favorite supporting Disney characters with the mischievous and twisted Cheshire Cat being the stand out. This animated classic is one of the many examples of an animated film not needing a live-action remake.
The Two Towers is largely the Fellowship of the Ring in terms of quality and due to the trilogy being created all at once it's very consistent in every facet imaginable. My issues come from the separation of the fellowship which creates multiple plot lines, it was executed well but you can't help but pick which characters you prefer to follow as some drag on more than others. Still there isn't much to add: this is one of the three essential films for any fantasy fan and it still keeps the high level of overall quality that was established in the previous film.
