The Scarlet Bullet is the 24th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was originally scheduled to be released in Japan on April 17, 2020, which made it the first movie to premiere in the Reiwa period, but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It was released on April 16, 2021. The pre-story is The Beika City Shopping Center Garbage Bin Mystery.
Maybe it's because it doesn't follow the typical Disney formula, but Atlantis feels like a pretty overlooked movie. It deals with more complicated subject matter than the usual fairy tale and takes on some pretty adult themes like greed, betrayal, and colonization. The only downside to having a more mature storyline is that it makes it more obvious that the characters who aren't Milo Thatch aren't super well developed. Kida is a fan-favorite because she's a badass, but she's ultimately a secondary character in the movie.
Bette Midler and Billy Joel are responsible for two criminally underrated songs in the Disney canon. "Perfect Isn't Easy" and "Why Should I Worry?" aren't just catchy as hell, but they also perfectly establish Georgette and Dodger's characters and fulfill the song requirement of a scene-stealing Disney sidekick. The rest of the movie is a really sweet adaptation of Oliver Twist, but it tends to be forgotten among the flashier movies that came after it.
Pocahontas is hard to rank because as an entirely fabricated work of fiction, it's good. But it doesn't exist in a vacuum, and even though "Colors of the Wind" is a beautiful song, the historical inaccuracies are...immense. Any movie that depicts the English colonization of Native American land in this kind of fairy tale light is just irresponsible. It treats the conflict between Pocahontas's tribe and the English like there were bad people on both sides, which, LOL.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo is an incredibly tragic novel, so I'm not sure who at Disney read it and thought, This will be an excellent cartoon for children. And frankly, as a movie for kids, I can't say that I'd recommend it. Some scenes are really hard to watch! But slightly older audiences will appreciate it, even if the talking gargoyles seem at odds with the sad moments (aka the rest of the movie). Count Frollo is possibly the cruelest person Disney has ever committed to cartoon, so watching him meet his end is incredibly satisfying.
Disney's take on Sherlock Holmes is The Great Mouse Detective, which sees the famous detective take the form of Basil, a mouse. Basil is investigating the disappearance of a toymaker, which brings him up against his perennial nemesis Professor Ratigan (Moriarty, duh). The movie also has a rodent stand-in for John Watson in Dawson, and a bunch of other small references to the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories sprinkled throughout. Oh, and Ratigan is voiced by Vincent Price, which is cool.
If you want to let out some emotions, if you're in need some catharsis, or if you need that last push to text/call someone you haven't spoken to in a while, watch The Fox and the Hound. It's a tragic tale about how none of your friendships can last forever and everyone you love will eventually change. That's not entirely true, but this movie about childhood besties who go their separate ways in adulthood is an absolute tearjerker.
I'm here today to tell you that even though you probably skipped it back in 2002, you should give Treasure Planet a shot because it's really good. It's an outer space version of Treasure Island, and the animation is really cool and different from most of the Disney movies of the time. And Jim Hawkins is probably the most accurate depiction of a teenager of all the movies on this list, which, considering that he rides a boat through space, is a pretty big achievement.
Technically Fantasia 2000 is a sequel, but since the original movie did not have a plot or characters, I think it's OK. Like the 1940 version, this movie is just a bunch of animated shorts set to classical music, and it serves its main goal: Let the Disney artists and animators show off. The Pines of Rome segment with its flying whales is my personal favorite.
I'd love to say that Robin Williams alone makes Aladdin one of the greatest Disney movies ever made. And in a way, he does: The Genie is hands down the best animated Disney sidekick of all time. "A Whole New World" is an all-timer of a karaoke song, and Aladdin and Jasmine are super cute together. Aladdin is great, it really is, but if it has a downside it's that it perpetuates offensive stereotypes about the Middle East throughout the whole movie.
Where would animation be without the huge success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Bankrupt, because the studio wasn't doing so well at the time. The point is the film changed the game as the kids say, and it's the perfect movie to watch if you want to marvel at how far animation has come in 85 years. Every single second of Snow White is hand-drawn, which is just super impressive. It doesn't have much going on plot-wise, and the Dwarfs themselves have drawn some backlash over the years, but there's no denying that it's a hallmark of the art form.
Mulan is a badass, and I don't think there's a better word in the English language to describe her. She was also the first of the Disney heroines whose story didn't revolve around a romance. In fact, Mulan is fully an adventure movie, with the only little hint of romance coming at the very end. It's got great songs, pretty animation, and a touching story about family and bravery. What's not to love?
Disney is notorious for killing off parents in their movies, but was there ever a death more devastating than sweet Bambi's mom? Maybe one, but we'll get to Mufasa later. That moment of tragedy notwithstanding, Bambi is among the most visually stunning movies in the Dinsey canon. Its focus on nature and animals made it more than just a coming-of-age story, but also a cautionary tale about taking care of the planet.
The Emperor's New Groove is unjustifiably overlooked as one of the great Disney masterpieces. It might not have an iconic soundtrack, but it's the funniest movie on this list. You may argue with the wall if you disagree. As for the cast, David Spade and John Goodman were famously funny actors when it came out, so it wasn't a surprise that they nailed their roles as Kuzco and Pacha. However, the movie's MVPs are obviously Eartha Kitt as Yzma and Patrick Warburton as Kronk. The evil genius/bumbling henchman dynamic has never looked or sounded better, and the "pull the lever" scene alone deserves awards.
Lilo and Stitch is kind of rare among Disney movies because it feels like it could take place in the real world despite having characters that are literally aliens. I realize how absurd that sounds, but it's true! Lilo and Nani's relationship is so realistic, and I am SICK and TIRED of Frozen getting all the credit for having Disney's best sisterhood when these two have existed since 2002. Plus, if you consider that Stitch is basically a dog, this is just a story about how the right pet can help heal a family.
Beauty and the Beast is so good that it became the first animated movie to get an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. There are no skips on the soundtrack, "Be My Guest" is nothing short of magical, and Belle's yellow dress changed lives. Belle and Beast might not have been love at first sight, but Belle's literally life-saving love confession is heart-wrenching.
As a rule, teenagers should not throw their lives away for the uncertainty of a future with a man they've laid eyes on twice. But is anybody watching The Little Mermaid for life lessons? No, you watch it because you want to be a mermaid and Ursula has the best Disney Villain song. Like all great Disney movies, The Little Mermaid sweeps you into the fantasy, no matter how much you find yourself agreeing with King Trident as you get older. Its release was considered the start of the "Disney Renaissance," and it's hard to argue with that estimation.
Kogoro has an overinflated sense of his own importance and detective prowess to the point where he doesn't investigate why he is suddenly and consistently passing out at crime scenes and solving cases in his sleep with different deductions than he was making while awake. Kogoro is also frequently unprofessional in his work, frequently making sarcastic and blunt comments about suspects or even his own clients. On cases, Kogoro is typically lax with his deductions and investigation, following only the most obvious clues or assumptions to reach his conclusions, which are often silly or fall directly into a culprit's trap.
After the Kidnapping Case, Conan wakes up in the morning and finds a slothful Kogoro drinking beer and watching television shows, including the musical performance of his idol star, Yoko Okino. Agasa advises Conan to build Kogoro into a great detective, in order to find cases related to the Black Organization, but Conan doubts if that is even possible given Kogoro's laziness.
Note: When adding pictures of Glock 17 pistols to movie/TV/video game pages on IMFDB, please use the image of the correct model. When in doubt, keep in mind that the 3rd Generation model was introduced in the late-1990s, so any Glock 17s that appear in movies prior to this time are inevitably going to be the 2nd Generation or even the 1st Generation models. Also note that in some cases Glock 17s are used as a substitute for the Glock 18, converted to fire full auto. See the Glock 18 section below for more information.
NOTE: There are a number of movies - such as The Dark Knight - which use Glock 17s that have been converted to automatic as stand-ins for the Glock 18. If you are in doubt a Glock machine pistol is a genuine Glock 18, look at the slide. Unlike other Glock variants, it has a switch on the slide used to select semi-automatic or fully-automatic firing. The selector somewhat resembles a decocking safety. Any full-auto Glock that lacks this selector is going to be one of the converted Glock 17s, not a genuine Glock 18. 2b1af7f3a8
