Disney movies view

I find over the years, Disney movies have really gone downhill. It seems that because of new technologies more and more movies have been put together with computers taking away a lot of that Disney magic and turning them more into cartoons.
Maybe it's just me but has anyone else also found this? There is a new Disney movie coming out called "Bolt" which looks like every other recent Disney moosh. Following that there is another one called "Tinkerbell" which looks like it might be more like the older Disney drawing productions? If its the case it might be really good.

For the most part I love anything that Disney and Pixar throws out. The animation is stunning. :)

As for Disney's oldie animated movies, my favorites are The Aristocats, The Fox And The Hound, Oliver And Company, and The Lady And The Tramp.

I personally think that Mary Poppins is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life and will never get tired of watching it. Both the movie and the books are amazing.

I think the live action and the animation currently (from 2000 and on) coming from Disney are so-so. You kind of have to pick and choose. There are original storylines along with lame ones, and great acting along with iffy acting.

BTW, I think Bolt looks like video game quality and would probably make for a nice video game. It looks cheesy. That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing it because it looks like it'll have a lot of humor. The hamster in a ball is kyoot. =P

I didn't like cars that much... But... I think Bolt is going to be very, very cute. I kind of miss the old Disney dog and people and horse and people movies too... remember? The boy and his dog movies? The girl and her hose movies... I miss those too...

Yes I totally agree, that's the way it has seemed for the last few movies. I am hoping Tinkerbell will turn out a bit better:

Def. Worse! It seems that either the stories are just dumb or they are just a play of off old movies.

well, they're running out of the original stories that Walt Disney wrote...they have to come up with their own now (bummer). I think that there are a lot of good Disney movies out there - I prefer the older cartoons, but some of the new ones aren't bad. I don't think Disney has much of a gift doing "non-animated" movies though.. JMO

I agree, worse! Eh, I don't even watch them anymore. The older, classic ones are better IMO. New ones, not so much.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

As long as Disney sticks to its target audience (children) they are ok. I enjoy the old stuff when you knew that thousands of man hours went into the animation rather then a few strokes at the keyboard.
I've always loved the way water looked in the oldies. The flood in Fantasia's Sorcerers Apprentice and the bubbles in Cinderella's Sweet Nightingale scene. I'm sure computer animation could have made it more correct and life like but not more beautiful and amazing.

I hated the pink elephants and the dancing hippos. I just love happily ever afters.......

I just read in the paper about a couple, the wife died like a week shy of their 75th anniversary, he died just a few weeks later. Can you imaging? That had to be some kind of love....
