Best animation Movies Ever #19 Sleeping Beauty

Tej Kohli animation movies list brings the next contender - Sleeping Beauty. Read its review as written by Tej Kohli.

Sleeping beauty was last of the classic animated fairy tales produced by Walt Disney himself. Released in 1959, the film initially bombed at the box office, but over time came to be known as one of the finest and most beloved film of the Disney's golden era. This is the studio's most iconic work with jaunty creatures, a beautiful princess, an evil sorcerers and a handsome prince on a white steed.

Full of vibrant colours, contemporary designs, and music based on the Tchaikovsky ballet, this film has nothing common in looks and sounds than any of the films that came earlier. The clean hand painted cells, which seems inspired by the medieval art offer a stylized look and a vibrant palette filled with bizarre combination of violet, green, ochre, indigo and fuchsia. The final climactic battle between Prince Phillip and Maleficent in the form of a gigantic dragon remains one of the most beautiful and thrilling sequences ever animated.

Best animation Movies Ever #20 My Neighbor Totoro

Here is another movie in our top 25 list!

Tej Kohli list of best animation movies ever shares another interesting movie which should be part of every animation lovers' library. In this post Tej Kohli talks about the 20th best animation movie My Neighbor Totoro!

My Neighbor Totoro is one of the earlier animation films by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli and even 22 years later is still considered one of their best creations.

The movie narrates the story of two sisters who move to the countryside in the post war Japan. There they come across a forest full of imaginative critters, and a large protective spirit named Totoro. As with most Miyazaki's movies, the film shows the journey of clash of childhood innocence and the beginning of adulthood and other other harsh realities associated to it.

Totoro does justice to both these aspects with its bright, vibrant visuals and its denial to submit to the old storytelling methods that derail so many Hollywood animations. If you are a fan of Miyazaki's films or even animation in general, you cannot afford to give this movie a miss.
