I would say Star Wars Empire strikes back with A New Hope being a close second.

Animated Film???

My damn troll attempt failed horribly...this is why you don't speed read at the gym ladies and gents...

 

Honest answer though...Bambi

I'm probably going to get crucified for this, but Akira. I think it's well made, and the animation is gorgeous. But the characters are paper thin, and the story completely falls apart. So, basically, I didn't care about anything that happened in the film.



Spirited away. Like many other anime stand alone movies, has the problem of too many random elements showing up without proper explanation and the whole movie ends up a mess.



Frozen, definitely. And a lot of people might hate me for this, but I found Wall-E to be overrated too.



Most movies mentioned in this thread are still better than most modern live action movies.

My pick: The Lion King.

The Lion King

Get out of here! The Lion King is the best animated movie of all time. All it's production value is still felt today more than 20years later. Phenomenal soundtrack and voice acting. Makes you both laugh and cry. Had a insanely poweful opening and ending. That movie is just perfect.

I don't know, I think it did well wrapping up the trilogy. 

 

Kung Fu Panda 3 seriously messed up when it tried to keep going on. If it went Toy Story's route and put a good end to it, it could've done much better.

Toy Story 4 is releasing in 2018.

You've got to be kidding me.

Spirited away a mess? Random elements? I guess it's the movies fault for not explaining the Japanese folklore it is based on in a 2 hour documentary before the movie starts :) Not that that's needed.

For me Wall-E is very overrated. It's a slow and rather boring movie to watch again, very simple and drawn out. Heck I like frozen better than Wall-E. It's one of my 4 year old's favorites.

It makes more sense for people in the east. Think of it like Yokai-Watch. All of the "random" elements are so strange to us. It's to the point where it ruins the movie for westerners. 

 

All of the spirits and myths that we've never heard of throw us off track
