AmandaRose, if you like Cinderella, go watch Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time, it has no right being as good as it is.
Also, the first 15 minutes of Up, oh. my. god.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders (2016): Fun sequel to the Batman 60's series that has Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their roles.
Coco (2017): Really if I was being honest this whole list would be Pixar movies, but I didn't want to just say "This is just a brutal gut punch of a movie" four times. Seriously though, Coco is Pixar's best and one of the few movies that's gotten me to tear up.
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999): I'm a fan of musicals, and this is a genuinely great one. The songs all carry emotion and never waste a second of your time. I'm also a sucker for things that are lowbrow and vulgar while making an intelligent point. The anti-censorship message here isn't super original or interesting, and it isn't married to the vulgarity as well as I'd like, but it gives the movie enough of a thematic drive to carry it forward.
Zootopia (2016): The most impressive thing to me about this movie is how lived-in the world feels, and how much that helps the message resonate. It's got a strong anti-discrimination message, which should feel trite and played out (especially in kid's movies), but the world is portrayed realistically enough that the prejudices aren't arbitrary and making them specific to this world means that the underprivileged classes of animal aren't just representations of real-world social classes, which helps the message feel fresher and less preachy. It's also just super funny and well-acted.



@Stealphie What didn't you like about Ralph Breaks the Internet? I remember it not being as funny or clever as the original, but I dug the story about Ralph becoming unhealthily attached to his friend and how it tackled his low self-esteem and lack of real identity outside of her. It was a nice antidote to the stories about friendship you usually see in kid's movies.

@relauby that's the good part about Ralph Breaks the Internet.
The problem is everything else. The internet part (aka the main part of the movie) sucks. The princess scene is cool tho.

@Stealphie Yeah, that's fair. I don't remember disliking the internet/Disney stuff, but it didn't make enough of an impression for me to remember it at all, really. Sounds like we basically agree on what was good and what was bad, but at different enough degrees that I ended up liking it and you ended up hating it.

Tie between any of the cartoons that disturb kids next. Watership down, The Plague Dogs, Felidae, The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat, Fritz the Cat (though the cat films mentioned here are probably more out and out adult cartoons than the others), possibly when the wind blows but I would sooner take The Snowman if it is a choice between the two big Raymond Briggs works. That said rather than any of those I would rather have Animals of Farthing wood which was TV.

Surprisingly there are no anime films that come close here. TV shows or something akin to it would see several feature but going through the token handful of top 100 or more anime films just to see if anything jogs my memory then nothing I would particularly say I would miss out on if I had not seen. Some stuff I like but nothing to particularly write home about.

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.

    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"

    Which was not the normal dynamic for that role lmao
