Ranking Disney: #10 – Pinocchio (1940)

Most people would consider this a top five Disney film for all time. And objectively, you’d be right. This is one of the single best pieces of animation ever made.

However, I did say when I was making this list — I was going to rank them based on how much I love them. And while I love Pinocchio — I’d rather watch the other 9 films on this list before this. I’d also rather watch Alice in Wonderland, which I put at #11 yesterday. And the reason I said I did that was because, while I think Alice is a much more entertaining film, and I love the animation more, in terms of how trippy it is and all the little things they do — this film wins in terms of the music, the heart, and the simple fact that it includes “When You Wish Upon a Star.” And, I’ll be honest — it doesn’t fucking matter anyway, since lists are bullshit.

So, objectively this is a top ten, probably top five Disney movie, so what better way to start my top ten?
