Oh… Mermaid. What a glorious, glorious film.
There are lots of reasons this goes here, none of which really need mentioning. Aside from the fact that it’s amazing all-around, from story to animation to songs, it was also the start of the Disney Renaissance, and was my first Disney film, so I really grew up with it — pretty much everything about this demands inclusion in the top ten.
Of course, I’ve said many times my list is about which films I personally like the best. So, while on an objective list, this would be in the second half of the top ten — in mine, it goes here. I actually had it at #4 until yesterday, when I realized that, while I would watch it more often than (and choose it most of the time over) the film that’s #4, I actually liked #4 better as a Disney movie. Not that it matters, since they both ended up top five.
I really don’t think I need to say much else here. It’s The Little Mermaid. Of course this goes here.
