    I think Mulan is massively underrated. As is Pocahontas​.

    Treasure Planet! It is such a brilliant and emotional movie with great special effects. It really makes me sad how hardly anyone knows about it.

    Overrated:
    Frozen but I still enjoy watching it

    The Croods and Despicable Me aren't Disney movies but they are great nonetheless ^.^

    You really think frozen is underrated? I think they've gone on about it long enough and have tried to capitalise the hell out of it with all the merch etc. It needs to stop!

    Absolutely. What has the success of its promotion got to do with how under/overrated it is? It is the best pure Disney film I have seen. The consensus of it being overrated here is because most people are in their teens or early 20s. While most of the films being tagged as underrated were watched at a younger age. If you look at them purely as films, Frozen is superior to every other film posted in this thread. It is perfection as far as Disney goes.

    Wow just wow frozen is all hype and no substance. Its an ok film but overrated none the less. Brave was massively better than frozen and that was extremely underrated because it didn't have any stupid songs and there was no handsome prince.

    So it's an OK film but has no substance? Surely it can't be both.

    Stupid songs which are incredibly catchy and have millions of views of YouTube? Why hate on them, they were good songs. I know the lyrics to like all of them.

    You mean the handsome prince who didn't end up with the princess and turned out to be evil? One of the main reasons why Frozen is superior to every Disney film that came before it was because of its unpredictability.

    You're just hating for the sake of hating. Jump off the bandwagon and start looking at it rationally.

    no you're just arguing for the sake of arguing. I'm not on any bandwagon here its my opinion, just because everyone likes it and it gets millions of views and sells lots of dolls doesn't mean its good, it caters to a certain demographic who buy into it, the critical film viewer may not agree. Also the last few years haven't been great for animation so there's little to compare it to. That's why its so popular, do you think that if toy story 3 came out the same year as frozen it would be as popular? No its because it had very poor competition.Maybe i've just grown out of films like this and last of all you can have something thats good but lacking in substance, think about some of those stupid cutaways in family guy (which are funny as hell but pointless).

    First of all, the critics loved it. Last few years haven't been great for animation? You telling me that Wall-e, Up, Toy Story 3, Tangled etc. aren't great animated movies? Never mind that, Frozen came out in the same year as The Wind Rises, one of the best animated films I've ever seen! To say that it had poor competition is a very uneducated opinion. You're just talking nonsense now. Sorry.

    Underrated: Treasure Planet, Hercules and Hunchback of Notre Dam - AMAZING MOVIES
    Edit: OMG I FORGOT THUMBELINA AND BROTHER BEAR!!!

    Also, my faveorite is The little mermaid so naturally I think it is underrated...

    Thumbelina, Hercules, and The little Mermaid also have the best soundtracks ever... And there is an awesome song in Treasure Planet too!

    I agree, Frozen is excellent.

    I think the reason people look down on it compared with other Disney films is that they have grown up with the likes of the Lion King so there is a nostalgic factor about them.

    I don't know if they're underrated or not, but I loved Mulan and the Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

    yeah blast someone then apologise, that's how it works, and i'm not talking about imdb and rotten tomatoes here there are underground critics who don't like it. just because i dont like what you like does not make my opinion valid but at the same time attacking me because i dont agree with you isnt really in good spirit. and no in my opinion wall-e was extremely boring the rest are mediocre but again i've grown out of certain kids films particularly if they're based in europe of the us or dont include poc, there are all too similar nowadays.

    He is not hating for the sake of hating, he just has a different point of view. Sheesh. I watched frozen and did not get why everyone was raving about it. It was not fantastic. Rise of the guardians was so much better even though it is not a Disney movie
