Rescuers down under isn’t the first to use computer animation. Little Mermaid, Great Mouse Detective and Black Cauldron all used it in different ways before.
Well Brother Bear the main character was human for something like the 15 first minutes …
Bambi on 12? That´s like saying the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is “nice”…
Like Beauty&Beast, I’ve never heard anyone defend Lion King with arguments other than “It’s FAMOUS!” “It’s POPULAR!” “It should have gotten an OSCAR, just like B&B!” or the old favorite, “It came out during the 90’s RENAISSANCE!”
How about something in the ballpark of “It’s good”?–And if we can’t manage that, would that really be a good excuse for putting Lady & the Tramp third?
(For similar reasons, I’ve never heard anyone who first saw Rescuers Down Under in theaters as an -adult- have good things to say about it…)
Home on the Range wasn’t that bad, and seems to have inherited all the historical fan-hatred against it for coming out right after Treasure Planet, around the time we were hoping that Chris Sanders would be rewarded for Lilo & Stitch by kicking out Eisner.
Nowadays, fans just know they have to hate it with a murderous passion, and can’t remember why.
