  • I love Incredibles and Shrek .

  • awsome list! I didn’t really like the incredibles as much but still a good movie!

  • Lion King and The Incredibles are my favorite :D

  • The Incredables was a great movie – but what about Akira?

  • Lion King is my favorite too. I listed the animated movies according to their worldwide box office earning, so I had to put Shrek 2 in the first place.

    @Saman: Well, I never heard of Akira. I read aboutit on imDB, and I think I should give it a watch. Anyways, thanks for telling.

  • Wow, you’ve never seen it?!

    It’s a great Anime – just remember that it was made in 1988, so the animation isn’t anything like you’re used to now, but the story is killer!

    Akira probably the most famous anime!

  • Well, I guess then it’s a must watch :D . I’ll watch it after my exams get over. :(

  • Nice post bro !! … i love Shrek n Incredibles :D !!

  • if you consider japanese anime as cartoons too, you missed inserting miyazaki’s work here. :D

  • Shrek > Shrek 2. Donkey was really hilarious in the first instalment. By the time Shrek 2 came around, he was becoming a tad irritating.

  • I love the incredible one. They are my fav after Shrek. :D

  • Mike

    Ice Age 2, really? I wouldn’t put either of the Ice Age movies in my top 5, though they’re pretty funny (especially the first one).

    Incredibles was excellent, but I think easily Ratatouille beats out some of the others, it would be in my top 3. Someone else mentioned Miyazaki’s work, which I’d strongly recommend you check into — Princess Mononoke would probably be the flagship movie of his, though his works are so numerous (and so spread out over the last ~20 years) it’s hard to pin it down to just one to use on a top-5 list.

    You can't beat a bit of CGI Animation.

    Anybody could do hand drawn animation as all you need is a camera, some paper and some pens/pencils to draw with.

    Anybody could do stop motion as all you need is a camera, and some 3d props

    I'm surprised that you didn't include any of Hayao Miyazaki' s films. “My Neighbor Totoro” or “Kiki's Delivery Service” are two of at least half a dozen of his films that could rightly belong on that list.

    We are in an era where there is a plethora of wonderful animation being produced. Making a top 5 list is impossible to do justly. There are just so many that are deserving. Still, Miyazaki is special.
