5. “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988)
This movie right here is a cinematic triumph, the effortless blending together of reality and animation hasn’t been done this well since. Entertaining performances all around especially by Bob Hoskins who captured the comedic and dramatic aspects of the story in a very convincing fashion despite  the fact that he had to act like a talking rabbit was in the same room with him. Charming humor, a clever script, and a rousing execution make this one definitely a watch if you haven’t already. 9.8/10
4. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993)
A whimsical tale that absorbs the mind and pleases the eyes with its visual effects. It was a fresh and energetic entry into the Halloween genre that carries the viewer into another world once it begins. The songs are catchy and quirky, enhance the experience into something that can only be classified as movie magic that you don’t want to end. It has an endless rewatchability factor, it’s original, it mixes fun and fright well and it’s a mandatory watch if you haven’t already. And I’d highly recommend it you won’t regret this 74 minutes of pure awesomeness. 9.8/10
3. “The Incredibles” (2004)
This movie is not just a great Pixar movie but also a great superhero movie that is thrilling, and provides a satirical look at what it would be like if superheroes were forced to live a suburban life and work regular jobs. Well animated and well written, creating another layer to the superhero genre with topics such as midlife crisis, material dysfunction, and child neglect that even some superhero movies made for older audiences don’t touch on as well. It’s exciting, it tells a story with real weight to it and doesn’t dumb down due to its target audience. Go watch it if you haven’t and if you saw it along time ago go watch it, it’s  1 hour and 5 minutes but doesn’t feel like it. 9.9/10
2. “Finding Nemo” (2003)
“Finding Nemo” is an absorbing adventure that takes you on a journey without letting you go and with beautiful animation. Stand outs being Ellen DeGeneres as Dory. She’s funny, likable and you want to root for her throughout the picture. Well realized direction, an elegant script and great casting lead. If you ask me it’s  one of Pixar’s greatest filmmaking achievements. It’s a breathtaking piece of cinema that should not be missed. It will engage kids and entertain adults as well. It’s a must see for kids and movie buffs alike. 10/10
1. “Spirited Away” (2001)
“Spirited Away” is a beautiful, charming, engaging, captivating, and intelligent piece of filmmaking that springs into drive and never stops. Visually, it’s a feast for the viewer and is almost like art, it’s so glorious. It’s more thrilling than some action movies I’ve seen and better drawn than a painter can imagine. And it just has to be seen. This isn’t even recommended from me, it’s mandatory viewing if you call yourself a movie fan. 10/10
