So after hearing the requests, I have finally decided to rank the Disney Pixar movies from worst to best. Ultimately, this list is going to be fun. Unlike Disney Animation Studios, Pixar tends to take a few more risks and as a result you have some timeless classics… And a few… Well not timeless classics. No matter what though, all of them have a wave of nostalgia attached to them that is undeniable. So with that being said, this is the Disney Pixar Movies, ranked from worst to best.
Keep in mind that the criteria for this list comes from the overall quality of the movie, the artistic merit, its longevity in culture, and some of my own personal beliefs as well. Continue reading →
So… I got some rather stimulating comments last week about my list of the Disney Princesses ranked from worst to best. I got several comments on this front, but one of the main ones was some misconceptions of how I ranked the system. My ranking was based on the 11 Disney Princesses + Frozen because I felt Frozen was eventually going to become part of this group. Your opinion on whether or not it should be included on this list has been noted and as such… It will be included on this list. Life sucks, sometimes you don’t get what you want.
BUT, in order to understand that my last list was graded on a mix of the Disney Princess character, the film quality, AND the impact this character has had, I want to now create a new list to illustrate how a change in the dimensions of the list can alter its ranking. So with that being said, this time I will be ranking the 11 Disney Princess movies + Frozen in order of their film’s overall quality. With that being said, let’s start at number 12.

When it comes to movies and characters, you will be hard pressed to find a set of characters as iconic and trans-generational as The Disney Princesses. Starting from their first movies in 1937 with Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs and continuing down the line to the most recent addition, 2013’s Frozen, there are very few characters that represent the majesty and wonder that the Disney Corporation strives to be. The Disney Princesses are a collection of some of the timeless classic movies in American Cinematic History and I guarantee that each and every person who reads this list has at least one of these movies that is near and dear to your heart. So I decided that it was high time to take each of these 12 movies and list them from the Worst at number 12 all the way down to the Best Disney Princess movie out there.
I am going to stress HARD that this was not an easy list to make. There are so many factors that go into this list and so many ways that I could list them. SO FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE READY TO JUDGE ME, here is how I am going to create this list. If I were to make a list solely on how good or bad the movie is or how these movies had an impact on the culture at large, this would be a VERY different list. So, what I decided was to limit my list to a certain criteria.
First off, I will only be including the eleven movies that are currently representing the Disney Princesses AND one movie that, I personally feel, is soon going to be included in this list; so much so that I feel that there inclusion is absolutely needed. So movies like The Hunchback of Notre Dame with Esmerelda, The Lion King with Nala, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire with Kida are out. So sorry, them’s the breaks kids. Take it up with Disney, not me. Also, I will be looking at each of these movies for their critical strengths, the impact that these movies have had on our culture, and of the character of the princess’s themselves. Ultimately, some movies may be ‘better’ than others, but due to the role of the princess in the movie, they may be brought down a peg or two. I will attempt to make my points clear with each group. Also, please keep in mind that just because a movie is low on my list does not mean that I think the movie is bad. On the contrary, even the lowest movie on my list would receive a 2.5/5 from me. So that tells you the kind of competition that we have. With that being said, let’s get started. Continue reading →
Thanks again to my wonderful girlfriend Kitty who is the proud owner of an X-Box One to allow me to play some of the games that she has bought over the year. My last trek has left me with a strong impression of today’s subject, Disney Infinity: Marvel Superheroes. An action and adventure sandbox game, this interesting look into the future of gaming includes little figurines that you place on a port to play as the given character or use a certain level. After giving the game a little go, I have to say that it was quite a rewarding experience and one I had a great deal of fun playing.
Disney Infinity: Marvel Superheroes doesn’t have a lot of a plot per say as much as it has an open sandbox world with several quests along the way to give a try. You get to play as some of your favorite Marvel and Disney characters dependent upon which of the figurines you have at your disposal. You adventure around the city and enjoy life as a superhero, saving lives, or just fucking with people. The choice is really up to you. Continue reading →
