Final Score: 111/195

I suppose I really shouldn't count "Song of the South," simply because all I HAVE seen of it are the animated portions - I've only seen brief clips of the live action stuff. It's not an easy movie to find... And of all the mediocre movies here I've seen, I note the only one I really HATED was "The Black Cauldron." So much it's the only Disney movie I don't own.


On Wednesday I realized that I am, indeed, nearly 45 years old. We had an Easter egg scavenger hunt/race in our department, which required running all over two buildings to all our units, and my team consisted of two 21-year-olds, a 23-year-old, and me. I hurt my hip. My massage therapist took care of it today. I'm glad I keep myself in shape!

Yay for Dark Quest interest!

I'm surprised you didn't bold Anastasia.

There's an animated movie out for Persepolis? That should be fascinating.

I still want to see Steamboy, and we need to watch Grave of the Fireflies. How long ago did I buy you that?

THANKS!

To be honest, I love so many animated movies I probably forgot to bold more than a few...

It's supposed to be excellent; it won the Oscar for animated foreign film a few years back. I heard about it on NPR, but never have gotten around to seeing it (it may even be on the endless NetFlix list, I'm not sure).

At least three years, I think. I almost commented on that. "I own it, but we still haven't WATCHED it..."

I'll be keeping fingers and toes crossed for you :)

And what does that mean "Disney's Dark Age"? Because I love The Sword in the Stone, The Fox and the Hound and Robin Hood.

Thanks!

Yeah, I wondered about that; I don't know who came up with that quiz in the first place. I guess a lot of people look at those movies as the "dark age" simply because the animation is not nearly as superior as earlier and later Disney (I do remember a great deal of fuss when "Little Mermaid" came out, because it was a return to Classic Disney standards). Nonetheless, I, too, love a lot of movies from that "dark age."

Wheeee! I know, I know, hopes up and all that. But me visualizing it can't hurt!

Thanks! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but even the nibble makes me more confident for the NEXT submission! :-)

Squeee indeed! *makes Hiro concentration face to send you good vibes*

Cool animation quiz! From a quick scan I guess my score would be similar to yours. I haven't seen practically any anime series, though. Maybe I should rectify that someday...

Thanks!!!

I haven't seen that many entire series; since "Macross" only "Full Metal Alchemist" and "Trigun" have I seen in their entirety; we've seen a lot of "Inuyashi," but that's apparently endless, so... *g*
