Disney dvds - Are they really great or just hyped well

I've never watched a Disney film, I've seen snippets and could probably tell you what most are about as they have entered the popular mainstream psyche, But I tend to avoid films that YOU MUST SEE.

So are Disney films really all that or is it just hype?

And if its not hype, what makes them so good, surely they are just kids films and undeserving of such mainstream adulation.

They're fab. The Toy Story films are my personal favourites. My kids love them too :) You're missing out!

Some are classics, but I agree very over priced compared to some Dreamworks films.

The newer pixar type films are good though.

How did you get through childhood with out seeing a Disney film? A lot of their films are classics and are worth watching if your a child or a adult. THe reason why a lot of them get adult adulation is do to the story telling.

No one makes animation films as well as Diney / Pixar these days, they seem to be light years ahead if you ask me.

Have you ever seen better animation than Finding Nemo?

I've seen all the Pixar films (Except UP) and they are aimed at both adults and kids and are fantastic I agree, But Disney seem squarely aimed at kids to me

Well I never watched them as a kid, because I was watching things like Alien and V and The Fly, I was always a weird kid but I loved horror and sci-fi and had no time for kids programs, But now after many years of being a movie buff, I wonder whether I misjudged Disney in particular :?

It's mainstream adulation because they love them from when they were kids, they haven't only got into them as adults.

so when you were 2 or 3 years old, your parents let you watch 18 films? Nice! :-D

A lot of Disney films are great for both children and adults. However, some are more, lets say, childish and not really entertaining enough for parents. However the Classic Disney Films - Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio, Dumbo, etc. Are absolutely amazing films and being as they were made 50 odd years ago were way ahead of their time and still manage to tug at the heartstrings of both adults and children alike.
I too am a great lover of films, but until you've seen at least 5 Disney films, you cannot judge Disney.
They are amazing storytellers and, dare i say it, still produce some of the best films every year.

Lets remember Pixar more or less saved Disney animation from going under.
Disney were very much on their own for many years. They had a massive monopoly and were pretty much able to do what they wanted. In the end they settled for a ready made formula of old fairy tales reproduced with a few modern updates.
However as the cost of animation dropped through the floor they became vulnerable and as the tiredness of the cooperation shone through everything and innovation was at zero other players emerged.
The only good thing they did at this point was team up with pixar and then build on the deal with them. However although pixar make great films, you can see the pressure being excited as time goes on.
Shrek also gave them one big kick up the .....
Now they have jumped on Ghibli. A studio that has produced an amazing set of animation films that show what the form can really do.

No Disney, no Studio Ghibli though, Hayao Miyazaki even acknowledges that. I think Disney always showed what the form can do. Ghibli is evolution, not revolution (and I'm a huge Ghibli fan). Pixar were far more revolutionary.

I watched Princess and the Frog at weekend and loved it.

My dad was a great believer in its only a film/television and that it was better to watch the unreality of it and know it is all fake, Worked well too, I never worried about monsters under the bed or hiding in the closet.......course I was terrified they would come out of the TV, but that's another story :p

LOOOOVE Ghibli, got all of them except the newest one, will have to wait a while there, and I have to agree again PIXAR were the revolutionaries who outDisneyed Disney, Ghibli were more of an evolution of style and storytelling that Disney would or could not move too

No disagreement that Walt Disney broke original ground and attracted to his organisation the greatest talent around.
However I think part of Ghibli strength is the cultural divide that I think meant that Disney films did not truly meet the audiences needs in that part of the world. This I believe gave Ghibli the space and resources to grow to what it is today. I think the revolution part comes in the turmoil and upheaval that it's influence has caused at Disney both direct and indirectly, meaning that the old order has had to give up much power to outside/newer talents.
I look forward to seeing the Princess and the Frog.
