My favorite underrated animated movies
  • The Prince of Egypt (1998): Dreamworks Animation’s beautiful take on the story of Moses from the Bible. It has complex characters fighting their inner demons and strong female characters ready to take freedom into their own hands even if the men aren’t. With mature themes, this animated movie has elements that younger children could never understand. The creativity is stunning, the music is delightful, and artistic style is breathtaking. With the voice talents of Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steve Martin, Sandra Bullock, Martin Short and Helen Mirren  (trailer)
  • Joseph King of Dreams (2000): Made with the same quality as its fellow Dreamworks Animation film, The story of Joseph, a young man with eleven jealous older brothers who sell him into slavery. After winding up in Egypt, the Pharroh discovers his gift for interpreting dreams and seeing the future. He is able to make a life for himself a comfortable life for himself in high society Egypt with his wife until his eleven brothers come knocking at his door, not knowing it is their brother. A story about never giving up on your gifts even in your darkest hour. With beautiful music, impressive animation, and the voice talents of Ben Affleck this movie is grossly underrated for the work that went into it. (trailer)
  • Anastasia (1997): The story of a royal victim of a massacre upon the Russian Royal family follows one of the only survivors of the rebellion. Anastasia, who remembers nothing of her royal past, is an orphan looking for family in Paris. An entire movie driven by a young woman’s motivation and determination to find herself after suffering from amnesia. With catchy animation, a thrilling and heartwarming story, and the voice talents of Meg Ryan, John Cusack, Bernadette Peters, and Angela Lansbury, it is a movie that can capture the interest of all audiences. (trailer) 

Other animated movies that were over-shadowed by popular animation: 

How To Train Your Dragon 1 (2010): DRAGONS! While the second one was more popular, this original still holds one of my favorite soundtracks and stories.

The Road To El Dorado (2000): Filled to the brim with witty humor and of course a kick-ass female character too.

Balto (1995): An action packed story about how even dogs can feel like outcasts and heroes.

Brother Bear (2003): Makes me cry every time because of the strength of family without any romantic aspect to it.


Please add more movies that you guys thought are incredibly beautiful and seriously overshadowed or underrated!

“God, why are you doing this to me? Do you hear me? Any kindness you take away. You gave me the dreams. You brought me the gift! Some gift! My dreams are lies. What have I done to deserve this?”

“But you are a miracle. God sent you to save our family and all of Egypt. And you did

I now present a joke SO BAD that you will never want to speak to me again.

The world’s first therapist actually lived in Ancient Egypt. His clients would come in and talk to him about all of their problems, people from all walks of life– scribes, merchants, priests, even the Pharaoh himself. The Pharoah’s appointment was from 1 to 2 every Wednesday, but he liked to talk so much that the appointment always ran over into his 2 PM client’s slot. The therapist didn’t mention it at first, because it WAS the Pharaoh, after all, the living incarnation of Ra, and he had no desire to be disrespectful, but after weeks stretched on, he politely told the Pharaoh that, while he didn’t want to interrupt him, he did tend to go over time. Fortunately, the Pharaoh was very understanding and said, “If I go over time by ten minutes, just let the next person in, even if I’m in the middle of a sentence.”

Sure enough, at his next appointment, the Pharaoh was in the middle of talking, when the next client knocked on the door and said politely, “Can I come in? Is someone in there?”

The therapist called back, “2:10! Come in!”
