Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Toy Story 3 won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature but perhaps its greatest feat was breaking into the Best Picture race although the medium has rarely been embraced in Oscar's top category few people could deny that Toy Story 3 was not only a magnificent piece of animation but filmmaking at its finest, of course, he does he cares about all of you he was putting you in the Attic 

I saw you can't just turn your back on him now oh well it wasn't the end for woody buzz in the gang this third chapter felt like the culmination of everything the franchise had been building towards delivering on its themes of moving on and accepting change they may be animated they may be plastic but the emotions these characters evoke couldn't be more real he's brave like a cowboy should be and kind and smart but the thing that makes Woody's special is he'll never give up on you it's a film that speaks to your inner child while also leaving you feeling more grown-up before we unveil ours.

3. Coco

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Pixar has always been resistant to doing musicals while the characters don't spontaneously break out into song and Coco this is arguably the first Pixar film where the music is even more integral than the dialogue what color is the sky I mo remember the story is significantly tied to the oscar-winning tune remember me which we first hear as a grand musical number later as a bittersweet farewell and again as an eye-opening tearjerker she's forgetting me who my daughter she's the reason you wanted to cross the bridge there's more than one way to listen to a song and the same can be said about our characters young Miguel is torn between his family's tradition and his passion for music while it would have been easy for this movie to choose a side it instead finds a middle ground that sees everybody grow by the final curtain.

4. frozen

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

When frozen hit the scene many were quick to hail it as the best animated Disney movie since the Lion King granted there had certainly been other worthy Disney films released between 1994 and 2013 nothing had taken the world by storm however since Simba took his place in the circle of life.

That all changed when Elsa let her ice powers loose setting a new standard for every Disney film that followed like The Lion King frozen broke box office records won two Academy Awards and even years later keeps viewers coming back for more but she froze your heart the only frozen heart around here is yours for the latest generation of moviegoers the film is a childhood staple for older audiences it reminded them why they fell in love with Disney Animation in the first place.

5. How to Train Your Dragon 2

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

The first How to Train Your Dragon set the bar pretty high but its follow-up somehow managed to improve upon virtually everything he liked the best sequels How to Train Your Dragon 2 delves deeper into its worlds lore and deeper into mature territory just as hiccup is much older than when we last saw him the animation is more sophisticated the action is more heart-pounding and the drama is more gut-wrenching your mother well now you know where I get my dramatic flair it's a film that really treats its viewers like adults emerging as one of the best modern fantasy epics live-action or animated.

I'm not the chief that you wanted me to be and I'm not a peacekeeper I thought I was as dark as the film can get director Dean Dubois never loses sight of the sincere friendship between a boy and his Dragon which has always been this franchises driving force.

6. Anomalysa

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

On paper anomaly supply as a live-action film as a matter of fact Charlie Kaufman initially wrote it for the stage under the pen name Francis for a goalie I can't explain while Kaufman had his doubts about adapting the play into a stop-motion animated feature this move added another level of gravitas to the story's existential themes so you need to find your friend though two beautiful ladies Trump's my friend lonely Michael feels like the only person in the world so much so that almost everyone else is voiced by the same actor will you kiss

Me again I hope to I hope you do too a seemingly ordinary woman named Lisa however catches Michael's eye as well as his ear Lisa could be a diamond in the rough but it's also possible that Michael is simply desperate for companionship, either way, Kaufman and co-director Duke Johnson have made a profound film about the human condition.

7. Kubo and the two strings

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

The stop-motion geniuses at Leica picked up where Tim Burton left off but in recent years have branched out with projects outside of the gothic fantasy genre with the golden globe-winning missing link they took us on an old-school adventure in Kubo and the two strings director Travis Knight drew heavily from Japanese culture crafting what's practically a stop-motion anime father I'm worried about mother with every day that goes by she drifts further away from the film also has echoes of The Legend of Zelda following a musically inclined boy on an epic voyage

He comes across an assortment of bizarre creatures thank goodness that's over when Kubo isn't sucking the audience in with its arousing story it's leaving them awestruck by the stop-motion wizardry scoring two Oscar nominations and winning the BAFTA for Best Animated Film this might be like as masterpiece.

8. it's such a beautiful day

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

You know that scene and inside out or the characters become abstract well this absurdist art house drama d comes from a modern master of abstract animation don Hertzfeld

He met his ex-girlfriend during her lunch break and they took a walk to the park he noticed that every time he was near her she sort of moved away with a tight-lipped smile on her face technically the film is comprised of three shorts by Hertzfeld centering on a man with a memory disorder who's searching for identity from the brief runtime - its stick figure characters -Hertzfeld constant narration it's such a beautiful day as his minimalist as feature animation gets at lunch he told bill about a physics book he was reading about time now the passing of time is just an illusion because all of eternity

Is actually taking place at once although it may look like something you'd doodle in class this is a sir really funny and surprisingly philosophical indeed gem about mental health family and the meaning of human existence even the animation while not groundbreaking per se has a distinctive charm demonstrating how even the most basic drawing can send a powerful message all the memories the doctor asked him to recall today is suddenly out of his grasp so many years of faces and moments are mostly just a vague feeling now.

9. inside out

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Whenever it looks like Hollywood is officially run out of ideas Pixar comes along with a new film that stimulates the mind, hello I'm joy inside-out isn't just a beacon of innovation but a beacon of hope for anyone who's ever felt like an outsider 11-year old Riley couldn't feel more isolated when she moves across the country 

Her struggles may be common but that doesn't make them any less heavy-handed or important to address mom and dad I came home because living into Riley's head where her emotions operate was taken on a joyous tear-jerking and life-affirming journey about growing up you need to be happy my hockey team while little kids will appreciate the film for its vibrant colors and playful humor older children and adults are bound to get an even stronger reaction out of this deeply emotional triumph.

10. the lego movie

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have taken several projects that seemed DOA and turned in something awesome with the lego movie they proved that even a film based on a toy line has the potential to be hilarious heartwarming and game-changing this movie's imagination knows no bounds assembling a collection of established characters like Batman and new animated icons like construction worker Emmet I know what you're thinking he is the least qualified person in the world to lead us and you are right that's just supposed to make us feel

Better the story feels like something a child would make up while playing with LEGOs which is fitting given a twist in the final act it's at this point that the lego movie evolves from a great film to an instant classic all of this that you see before you is all your father's and everything is thought out top of the tower it might have been snubbed out of a Best Animated Feature Oscar nomination but what Lord and Miller have built will last for eons ages eight to fourteen that's a suggestion they have to put that on there.

11. song of the sea'

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Developed by cartoon saloon the same studio behind the breadwinner song of the sea' is another elegantly crafted Oscar nominee with a strong sense of culture described as a spiritual follow-up to director Tom Moore's previous film The Secret of Kells the story once again borrows from Celtic folklore

Haven't been keys that old here breathe the water our heroes have been a young Irish lad and Saoirse his silent sister who's a selkie although Ben has resented Saoirse ever since their mother vanished their broken family is mended through magic mythology and music speaking of which song of the sea' is every bit as beautiful to listen to as it is to look at the soothing score and hand-drawn animation make for an atmospheric voyage beyond the sea and our wildest fantasies.

12. Moana

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

When it comes to princesses Disney often looks to classic fairy tales for inspiration Moana on the other hand has the distinction of being a wholly original addition to the Disney Princess lineup yet the filmmakers tell a timeless story that feels like it could have existed for centuries huge news we can take them to find Maui make him restore the heart we were voyages we can buoyant again that's because director Ron Clements and John Musker did their homework on Polynesian mythology becoming especially intrigued by the demigod Maui.

No one of the key themes in Moana is looking to the past for guidance and seeing how far that wisdom will take you maybe the gods found you for a reason maybe the ocean brought you to them because it saw someone who is worthy of being saved the same can be said about the film which builds upon both Polynesian traditions and Disney traditions to create something shiny and new we'd say thank you but Maui is already singing you're welcome.

13. the tale of the Princess Kaguya

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

With films like Grave of the fireflies only yesterday and pom Poko it's our Takahata established himself as one of the greatest anime directors of all time oh what a beautiful little doll no quiet like following a lengthy hiatus Takahata returned to direct his final feature for Studio Ghibli the tail of the Princess Kaguya inspired by Japanese folklore.

The film centers on a tiny girl who grows exponentially after being discovered in a bamboo stick the purpose of this banquet is to celebrate the taking of my name of course it is man yes but all I'm doing is sitting here it's like I'm not even at my own party where everyone else views her as sacred royalty the girl truly wants nothing.

More than to be an ordinary human much like its sketchy yet stylish animation the story brings out the beauty and simplicity only now when I'm forced to go back to the moon do I finally remember why I came here just a few years before Takahata passed away at age 82 and 2018 Princess Kaguya earned him his first Oscar nomination ever for Best Animated Feature.

14. your name

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Makoto Shinkai has certainly made a name for himself in recent years with this romantic fantasy I wrote and directed the highest-grossing animated you're just more popular when I'm you fooling yourself audiences fell in love with the story of taki and Mitsuo high school students with an unusual connection despite never meeting in person they begin to miraculously switch bodies although they're brought together by fantastical elements the bond between taki and Mitsuo is beyond genuine these two are destined for each other but they're separated by more than walking distance oh my gosh from taki again but what was talk you doing out here in addition to being gorgeously animated your name is an exquisitely told story full of mystery and tears I came all this way to see you which wasn't easy since you were pretty far away the gripping drama leaves us hooked until the very last revelation which is as satisfying as endings get.

15. a cat in Paris

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Since it didn't receive much publicity in the States this French film took many by surprise when it scored a Best Animated Feature Oscar nomination it was definitely deserved as a cat in Paris is a cleverly written and slickly drawn hoot yes sweetie that's the man who shot your father directed by Jean-Loup Felicio Lee and Alan Gong yell the story revolves around a feline with a double life a cat burglar with a heart of gold a police superintendent with a vendetta a little girl without a voice and gangsters without a clue the film channels various capers from North by Northwest to Reservoir Dogs it also has a wonderful sense of humor calling the Pink Panther and even home alone to mind for fans of farcical comedy and animation it's a perfect combination.

16. wreckit-ralph

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Over the last decade, Disney has been really a ting what it means to be a villain and record Ralph is one of the most unique examples I can't spend another 30 years living alone in the garbage I'm not going back without a medal Ralph isn't a bad guy being the antagonist in an arcade game though wrecking buildings is part of his job the wrecking guy where's Ralph you should be building the film presents an engaging existential crisis while also making way for a lot of laughs creativity and video game references director rich more rose to prominence working on shows like The Simpsons and Futurama bringing the same biting satire and wit to his feature debut you know what's gonna happen when the players see you glitching they're gonna think the game's broken just as many Simpsons and Futurama episodes were anchored by a strong emotional core wreck-it Ralph and it's 2018 sequel balance out every laughs with a touching moment.

17. tangled

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

The outside world is a dangerous place filled with horrible selfish people you must stay here in an era where mainstream animated films had become more reliant on pop-culture references and edgy humor musical fairy tales were starting to look like a thing of the past for those who grew up on Disney classics like Snow White Cinderella and The Little Mermaid tangled was the comeback we all had been waiting for alright listen I didn't want to have to do this but you leave me no choice here comes the smolder the film returned to many of the tropes that Disney built its feature animation brand upon a lovable heroine a sinister villain catchy music scene-stealing comedic relief and a gripping love story however this fresh take on the story of Rapunzel also brought several new elements to the table such as modern sensibilities and dazzling CG animation arguably commencing another Disney Renaissance tangled was overflowing with heart and hair.

18.  the breadwinner

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

This oscar-nominated animated feature is a bit like Mulan crossed with Persepolis based on Deborah Ellis's novel the breadwinner centers on parwana an 11-year-old Afghan girl where is he being taken to prison they'll teach him a good lesson pull a Chucky the Taliban won't allow girls or women to even step outside without a male

Escort which proves increasingly problematic when padawan s father is arrested you need to get a boy's name so you don't hesitate next time somebody asks you I am Della wad no it means brave to provide for her family padawan addresses up as a boy although getting caught would likely mean death the teachers talk as intense and harrowing as the breadwinner can be director Nora.

To me has ultimately made a hopeful film about family friendship and the compassion that every human being deserves every day you'll come home with cuts and blisters every day you go out there and I don't know if I'll see you back again I can't lose you too for those who view animation as kids stuff this is a prime example of how the medium can be used to reflect real-world struggles and adult themes.

19. Klaus

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

In a year dominated by animated sequels, this Netflix movie not only stood out as an original property but also as a welcome throwback to hand-drawn techniques one year you can't cheat bribe, or squirm your way out of this one dad come on it's me let's talk about this ma'am Klaus provides an origin story for Santa Claus voiced by JK Simmons in a gruff yet tender performance where are you gonna get that many toys you make new ones

I don't make toys however the film is just as much about Jason Schwartzman Jesper a spoiled rich boy forced to deliver mail on an isolated icy island together both men learned the value of friendship and come to see how one act of kindness can snowball into something even greater delivering these toys seeing the joy they bring to children I thought I'd never feel this again the heartfelt story and vibrant traditional animation will fill the audience with warmth as if they're sitting in front of the fireplace on Christmas Eve interesting choice of words really you're the two pieces it's no wonder Klaus swept the Annie Awards.

20. Isle of Dogs

Top 20 Best Animated Movies of the Last

Almost a decade after the fantastic Mr. Fox Wes Anderson returned to stop-motion animation with wildly imaginative creation spots will be the first dog to be officially deported from the city at its heart Isle of Dogs is a classic tale about man's best friend the way this story is executed is anything but traditional though incorporating a futuristic Japan a dog flu epidemic and a whole island comprised of trash some say they died away over the subsequent years starving and forgotten some say they swam to the mainland but this seems unlikely too far to dog-paddle the witty screenplay is complemented by an inventive visual design

Transporting the audience to a marvelous world of miniatures Isle of Dogs is like a Rankin/bass special if it were conceived by Akira  Kurosawa which makes sense since both were reportedly sources of inspiration what's your name who cares you're from central mega shaki I can tell by the accent at the same time the film has that signature oddball wit and whimsical visual flair that could only stem from Wes Anderson's genius.
