o/t: The Animation Top 100

Time Out has created an online compilation that I think will prove of lasting value: the top 100 animated movies (listed and reviewed), as voted on by a battalion of animators, journalists, moviemakers and even humble scribes such as moi. Obviously I disagree with some of the choices, and there are, in my opinion, some regrettable omissions, but that’s inevitable with an exercise of this sort. Good to see Miyazaki taking two of the top three slots!

There are even a few noirish items in there, such as PERFECT BLUE (1997).

Overall, an essential reference source for anyone even remotely interested in animated movies, is what I’d say.

  1. Wow, this is absolutely fantastic John!!! And I must extend enthusiastic congratulations to you for your actual participation in this project!!! Your own volumes on animation speak for themselves and for your special embrace and knowledge of this genre! I’d say this is a very fair result, combining as it does Hollywood classics like PINOCHHIO and SNOW WHITE, the Miyazakis and Pixars and several other independents. Definitely a must for animation and cinema fans, and an eternal reference point!
