^Yes. This, so much!
All my friends like it, luckily. It's criminally underrated.

Atlantis is the only Disney movie I started watching and I never finished.

Edit: Pocahantas is another Disney movie I've never finished. These are the only two.

Muppets From Space gets a lot of hate, especially from the more die hard Muppet fans. But I love it, in spite of all the flaws that it has.

I know! Every time someone says they don't remember it or it's boring, I want to cry. 8D

Treasure Planet is my big one. It's one of my top 5 Disney films, yet everybody seems to hate it. Shame... :cry:

I find that most people haven't even heard of it. Sadly.

I really like the first two Shrek films, but I find a lot of Pixar fans dislike it. I know that J Katz isn't admirable in my opinion, but they are still two darn good films in my opinion.

I thought Treasure Planet had a wonderful premise (Stevenson's swashbuckling adventure in space!). Although, I felt Jim Hawkins wasn't a really strong protagonist - there was a 'How To Write An Animated Film Script' book, of which I forgot the title, where the author says that Jim gave up too easily during that scene on the deck with Silver (the one where he cries into the pirate's shoulder). And I felt the same way too with a lot of the other characters like his mum and the sexy cat captain. Dr Doppler was my favourite, though, I just love his Freudian slips!

I loved Home On The Range when I first saw it a few years ago on a library DVD when I was a young uni student (it was also around the same time I watched Treasure Planet). I mean, the trio of spunky cows (voiced by Judi Dench, Roseanne Barr and Jeniffer Tilly) were funny, and that scene where they act all sad in the rain really got to me for some reason (along with one of the breaking the fourth wall wondering why "it always rains when it's sad"). And the cattle rustler was one of the more hilarious baddies of Disney's canon (he serenades the cows with his yodeling), although you could never really take him seriously. A lot of film critics and movie books I've read panned it as one of Disney's weaker efforts, but to me, it had a lot more soul and wit than, say, Chicken Little.

Also Cuba Gooding Jr. voices a horse and Steve Buscemi, a one-legged rabbit!

TDIT: It's interesting that you mention Home on the Range! Because just a few minutes ago I mentioned it on another thread. I actually kind of like this movie. The soundtrack is great and I really like the character design. and you mentioned the cast. I think it has one of the best casts of any Disney animated film.

The story may not be fantastic, I admit that. But I think it gets more hate than it deserves.

I genuinely loved Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life. I know a lot of critics lauded it as one of the best films ever made, but an even larger proportion of them and the general public hated it. I can see how the experimental/nonlinear style might not be for some people, but I've heard stories about people walking out of the theater when it was still showing and that makes me upset. :(

Ah, the Least Favourite Disney Movie thread?

Along with the points you mentioned, I think it's the little moments of absurdist humour (like the little fly apologising at 1:26 of the trailer, that always gets me for some reason :lol: ) that were also seen in another favourite of mine (and which a lot more Disney fans loved), The Emperor's New Groove. In fact, they would make a great double feature because of their 'revisionist history' parodies and postmodern references.

Ding: Even though I don't trust most film critics (despite being one myself), I'm very curious to see Tree of Life if only because they couldn't reach a consensus on it. It is these kind of indie films which interest me, instead of the overhyped or overpraised ones like Slumdog Sweep-All-The-Gongs (it's a wonderful movie, don't get me wrong, but I didn't buy the praise poured on it) or what-on-earth-was-the-ending-about No Country For Old Men, or There Will Be Blood, which I fell asleep halfway through.

Another recent movie that divided critics, Cloud Atlas, is premiering here next week, and I'm very eager to see it.

My Father absolutely loves it, but I found it boring and a bit pretentious (if I'm honest).

Oh, you're going to love Cloud Atlas! I've only seen a few films that can match its raw ambition. I thought it was the best movie of the year, and was really upset to hear that it didn't get any Academy Award nominations.
