I'd put #7 and #4 in the top 3.

I haven't seen Princess Mononoke yet, but both Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away were stellar.  I should put it on my to-watch list.

List fails without "The Secret of Kells"

The majority of that list could have been filled with Studio Ghibli films and would have been none the worse for it. Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Laputa, Nausicaa, Porco Rosso, and... whatever the English title is for Mimi wo Sumaseba are all among the most beautiful animated films of all time.

Oh, and of course Totoro! How could I forget that one!

FTFA: Animation is more than Disney and the Hollywood studios, more than even Studio Ghibli.

Even though I know it's fake, I can't stop laughing.

Maybe so, but it seems disingenuous to create a list of the most beautiful animated films "of all time," and then disqualify a number of works that could have knocked others out of the park, on the basis of "Well, they're popular, so..."

How could they leave this off the list? The minimalist drawings, the simple plot. Beautiful!

Considering he included works by Disney, Hollywood and Ghibli, I'd say he didn't disqualify anyone.

I think he was simply stating that, "Yes [they] make beautiful movies, but there are studios you might not have heard of that do too, and sometimes do it better."

Whisper of the Heart

I would also add Akira to the list.  The detail put into the backgrounds is amazing.

I knew what was coming.  I still nearly sprayed Thin Mint-flavored coffee all over the screen, not because of the ending...the credits.

It's not a movie, but the first time I saw Paperman was the first time in a long time I was genuinely impressed by animation.

Yep, I saw the Big Three examples.

Just think it could have been titled better, is all, maybe "Ten of the most beautiful animated films of all time, some you've heard of, some you haven't" or something.

Also: I went looking for this years after I saw it maybe once or twice in my childhood.  There was something unforgettable about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bETCusT5kNM Beautiful?  Meh.  Entertaining?  Most definitely.

I'd put #6 into the top 5, keep #4 in the top 3.

Hate to say it because the movie wasn't that good, but if we're going purely on visuals, Avatar belongs on the list.

I would like to second this sentiment.  That was a wonderful movie.

Did Christopher Nolan beat this dude up or something? Sensing a bit of butthurt reading the #6 entry.

If you ignore the 'non-animated' portions, then Allegro non Troppo is worth a look.
