    I saw this during its theatrical release and really enjoyed it, despite knowing, even at ~13, that it wasn't particularly good.

    I saw it again somewhere around halftime between then and now, and remembered it being actively bad.

    But that's so short of doing this justice.

    Utterly mindless, this is one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. Scene by scene, you can see how the action is driven by whatever special effect they wanted to show. Very nearly unwatchable.

    Another classic on that short list of the best animated film ever contenders. The magic of the opening scene, the heart-wrenching beauty of the closing sequence. They should have ended it here.

    ★★★

    Being early 80s baby with a late 80s sister, this was in high rotation at Casa de Hill. Given that, what a disappointment. It's hard to over state how lousy this animation looks for the time. Aladdin is, what, 30 months away??

    Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible or anything, but it's just not what we've come to expect from Disney during the Golden Age.

    ★★★★½

    I'm not saying this is the greatest film ever made.

    BUT.

    If you say it?

    ... I'm not on here to pick fights with strangers.
