Online Film Critics Society Top 100 Animated Features of All Time

Another list from the Online Film Critics Society is their Top 100 Animated Features of All Time. This is very Disney friendly, but does also include some early innovators that predate Disney as well as some more recent anime.

I'd be relatively impressed with the non-Disney films if it was specifically supposed to be a list of American animated films, but in the face of the wider world, which it does acknowledge, it falls apart. I had a blast with the South Park movie, for instance, but I can't accept that anyone can believe it better than Spirited Away, which to my mind, sits so far ahead of every other animated film ever made that slots 2 to 9 should remain blank.
