The Top TenXW

1The Lion King

Disneys finest masterpiece Good characters, good music, good story and a good morality tale, the lion king is still good!

A unique flick. Will always be loved and praised forever.

The Lion King is one of the greatest movies of all time. I cry at least 5 time throughout the movie. They could have ended after the circle of life scene and I would have been happy. That's how amazing it is.

Masterpiece in the lines of Toy Story

2Toy Story

This movie is probably my favorite movie of all time! The story is so great about Buzz and Woody's friendship. Their is also some adult humor too this movie is great for all ages and deserves to be number one!

As Pixar were making this. Some people were unsure about it. After all, computer animated were only used for short films back during the 80s and early 90s. Some even said that people can't watch over a hour of computer animation. Everyone's minds changed soon after the first set of audiences watched it. Soon after, everyone started watching it and almost every other animated movie were made on the computer. The movie itself is also amazing. This is movie changed how people looked on computer animated and a classic that everyone should watch.

Probably my favorite movie when I was growing up -

This is a dumb movie, it's just about toys that come to life.

3Shrek

I watched this recently and I had forgotten how much I love it! - JasperB

I don't see why people ADORE How To Train Your Dragon so much! Sure, it's okay but Shrek has such a better story, characters, humour, actors etc. It's brilliant and never ages! Absolute classic!

Shrek is love, Shrek is life and it's #1

My childhood, not kidding, this is my best childhood movie ever.

4Wall-E

I love all the top three...I. E loin king toy story 1 3.. But wall E is definitely THE BEST it is simple yet is effective in its story telling... There is the cutest robo or machine ever manufactured... And its love for earth... How can anyone resist WALL E... It doent get boring even you watch it multiple times.. Simply superb

The best animated film ever. I can't possibly feel you how amazing this is, for I wish not to provoke anybody.P.S. Has anyone ever heard someone say that if it's disney it definitely good, because I once heard someone say it. They deserve a nice roundhouse kick to the face. They are probably one of those " if it's disney I like it just because it's disney and I love anything and everything disney" people. And in case you wanna know my favorite animated show is SpongeBob. How can you not like Patrick. And the disney stereotype would probably hate SpongeBob.

This film is beautiful and thought provoking. The first half has very little dialogue and it is still amazing. This is the first movie I knew I had to only watch in high definition.

Best animated film ever

5Finding Nemo

Best movie ever should definitely be in the top ten. Its so sad and heart-breaking at some points and then absolutely beautiful in some parts. The beginning when marlin rescues nemo's egg and goes its okay daddy's here is so perfect. Hopefully finding dory will be just as good, have so much expectation for it

I heard that when Ellen went to Sydney
She tried to find wallaby way which was the street from memo and she got annoyed that she found out that it didn't exist

They go to sydney Australia, what is not awesome about that

Hilariously funny and memorable.

6Up

A squirrel walked up to a tree and said "i forgot to store acorns for winter and now I am dead". It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.

I loved this movie so much; after it came out, I watched it every day and said the best parts over and over. Most new movies are terrible, but this is more than just a new movie...it's a classic.

It tells a more touching story in the first few minutes than the other movies do in all their time combined..truly exceptional stuff

This has been, and will always be, one of my favorite movies of all time. Very few movies can hit you with an opening montage that brings you to tears in the first five minutes, and then proceed to make you laugh your head off. Up is an absolute masterpiece.

7The Simpsons Movie

The big screen adaptation of probably the greatest animated sitcom there has ever been. Thank you Matt Groening!

This is ONE of the movies that never gets olD... Complete humour from the beginning till end + an amazing story... After seeing the climax when homer saves springfield in a bike some people with sick mind might end it in one word 'STUPID', but others like me will end it in two words 'CLASSIC HOMER'

Springfield's finest in their first big screen outing. Spiderpig / Harry Plopper is such a scene stealer.

Most annoying movie ever! Deserves to be banned for kids.

8Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is the greatest testament to Animation, Story, Connection and subconscious understanding The world has ever witnessed. It pulls out all the stops and challenges your inner child, and some of the most powerful scenes I have ever witnessed in my years of film viewing, it speaks from the heart and tells you a story that will not only Entertain, Excite, Humour, Frighten and Possess you, but will make you remember how much your non talking childhood friends meant to you. Also everything else that requires a film to be a masterpiece is right there. - Drewstar

Toy Story 3 is by far the best animated movie ever made. We understand that lion king is a classic but older movies are meant to be bettered. And this is the best that Hollywood has produced

I don't even get it... Haven't you seen spirited away... It is the best animated movie I have ever seen... If you haven't seen it I really hope that you do

Why Toy Story 3? Because it gave a new meaning to my life. And Buzz & Jessie's paso doble is one of the most amazing things I've seen in my life.

This is what a sequel should be times 2

9Spirited Away

Come on guys, Spirited Away is masterpiece when talking about animated movies. Pixar Studios already told they've learned a lot from the Spirited Away 's director Myazaki and have lots of influence on him. It's so sad this film didn't actually had a good marketing, its got a perfect plot, beautiful messages and can take you to an amazing fantasy ride. I just couldn't believe it's so low in this list.

This movie is truly one of the best movies I've ever seen in my entire life. It so different from normal animated movies and has such a strange plot, yet still amazes me of the originality and ideas put into this. Its truly amazing, the animation, the story, the music, I can't even describe how well made it is. When I was 10 years old I saw it for the first time and was amazed. Now I'm 20 years old and I still love this movie.

The absolute most charming, heart warming movie ever made. I go as far as declaring it as one of the greatest movies ever made.

Honestly the best animated film of all time. When I first saw this movie, I had no idea what to expect, I was blown away. It's one of those films where there is just nothing wrong with it. It's so unique in so many different ways. The animation, the music, the story, the characters, the setting, the voice acting, everything. The movie is also very moving with good messages and it is very symbolic.

10How to Train Your Dragon

So one of the best movies ever made... IS NUMBER 50?! How is this not in the top ten? This is by far the best animated movie ever made, and Toothless is my favorite fictional character ever.

This movie is awesome, most people are fooled by the name. This is my favorite animated movie of all time and I love toothless. It also has its own video game and T.V. series. Great visuals, action, and comedy. Also heart warming

My #2 animated movie it is perfect, Great visuals, great comdy, thrilling action, heart warming and great plot and story line

Great progression of story, not too fast, not too slow.

?Doug's 1st Movie

The most boring movie I've ever seen the book is too babyish.

The Contenders

11Wreck-It Ralph

Did you know there were fourteen Sonic the Hedgehog cameos in this movie? Truth be told, I probably wouldn't have known that without the power of YouTube... But it's the best movie ever for gamers!

The best animated movie of 2012. It is fun, sad, cool, and epic. You can see most of video game characters in there. My favorite line is:
Vanellope: "what if they won't like me? "
Ralph: who doesn't like a little brat with dirty hair? "
It is a must see

Better than frozen, I absolutely love this film.

This is my favorite movie - Jefin

Awesome movie. Should be higher. - arpanvinayak

Definitely should be in the top ten without a doubt - PenderK

The incredibles has everything a good movie needs. Action, comedy, a good plot, a crisis, emotion... I could go on for ever. - TheGrammarPolice

So far, this is the only good Fantastic 4 movie we have

15Inside Out

Pixar's great comeback! Inside out is really really a great movie! Watch it now and vote it! Because It's really GREAT!

Why is this so low? It was awesome. Should be number one. Bing Bong was my favorite part.

It's a beautiful movie. Haven't seen it yet? HURRY UP AND WATCH IT! - AnonymousChick

It's scary how good this movie is. - phillysports

16Ice Age

Such a funny film. The other Ice Age films are equally funny but wouldn't have existed without this masterpiece.

The original Ice Age film. Without this, we wouldn't have had all those sequels that came after Ice Age

The Ice Age trilogy is the definition of Sub-Zero. Obviously this is the most Sub-Zero of the series so far. Ice Age rules.

It's a funny film but wont like it

17The Nightmare Before Christmas

This movie was absolutely wonderful. It was very dark like a Tim Burton movie but also very cheerful and emotional at the same time. Jack's struggle to fill a longing for happiness and change made the movie very emotional and Sally's struggle to be normal and see the outside world. The songs in the movie either were very funny and cheerful such as the Oogie Boogie Song and This is Halloween. Then, there's the case about songs such as Jack's Lament and Sally's Song. I thought the emotion of a Tim Burton film combined with the comical Disney moments made this movie excellent. The stopmotion was excellent and I loved the animation. The music also fit the film perfectly.

I love this movie so much. It's a great Halloween movie but, I also enjoy watching it around Christmas, too. You know what? I could watch it all the time. I love it that much.

Zero and jack are as awesome as... Steve and the wolf in Minecraft

Oh my god. This movie is amazing. I love Tim Burton and his dark fantasy movies. Please get it to 1!

19Despicable Me

One of the funniest animated movies of all time! That painted pyramid in the background of Vector's house is just genius! This should be much higher!

Gives an amazing view of how children can change us. Children don't think like we do, they don't understand what we do and that makes them superior to us, because they have the ability of believe when they have no reason to, to hope even when we would know its impossible and to try even when its absurd or foolish. For children every thing is impossible, cause that's just how their mind believes the world works.

Similar in tone to Megamind this is the story of an evil mastermind who attempts to steal the moon. But unfortunately for him there are 3 orphans in his way. - jezza0

No. Minions suck.

20The Lego Movie

This film was a blast to watch at the theaters, the story was a breath of fresh air, the animation is the BEST I've ever seen, and the characters unforgettable. If it's still in theaters, go see it NOW.

I went through 40 movies to find this one. It's just that good. Morgan freeman as a blind wizard! Lego batman building baby carriages, green lantern is still a loser (unless you read the comics, then you know the real reason), and will ferrel! I dreamed of this movie, it is the god of animated movies!

The Lego Movie was the best movie ever made. Many superheroes returned in Lego forms and it was plain hilarious. The song was good and anyone who played with Lego would find this movie a complete masterpiece. Everything was actually made of Lego (Apart from relics) unlike other cartoons which only have Lego charectors. The song "Everything is awesome" was awesome too.

Honestly I can't stand this movie. Every time I turn around I heard some idiotic seven year old singing "Everything is awesome" stop. Just stop.
