I just realized I haven’t posted a proper list in ages, so today I want to share my favourite non-Disney animated movies. Here we go!
(I won’t contain any Anime films in this list as there are just too many great ones. Subject of another post!)
Some people hate these little fellas with all their heart, but I simply adore the minions. Ever since watching Despicable Me I’ve been charmed by them. You can guess how excited I was so see their very own movie! Minions is absolutely hilarious and simply super cute!
#4 Corpse Bride:
It’s no secret that I love Tim Burton films but this one is definitely among my favourites. Corpse Bride was made with so much love for details. Together with the rather somber atmosphere it’s unlike any other movie.
#3 The Curse of the Were-Rabbit:
You may know the TV show Wallace and Gromit or one of the short movies that derived from the show. The first full-length film featuring not only our two favourite characters, but also a dangerous were-rabbit! Another super cute production you can’t help but love!
#2 Mary and Max:
This movie is nothing like what you would expect. Mary is a weird little girl who begins an unlike pen-palship with an 44-year old man. The best way to describe this one is simply as heart-warming. Numerous times throughout the film you’ll want to hug your screen. Still all clichés are avoided and we get a wonderful and smart movie.
Really impressive. Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi. It follows the evolution of a young girl against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. I still can’t believe that this masterpiece never won the Academy Award (Ratatouille won that year). If you haven’t seen it already, go check it out right now, you won’t be disappointed!
