Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

The 80s is the best decade for animated films imo, but I guess the 2000s comes close. Every single year of the 80s has at least 3 good films.

My top 3 for each year:
1980: The King and the Mockingbird, Twelve Months, Phoenix 2772
1981: Unico, Feherlofia, Legend of Sirius
1982: Time Masters, The Flight of Dragons, The Plague Dogs
1983: Unico in the Island of Magic, Heroic Times, Barefoot Gen
1984: Nausicaa in the Valley of the Wind, Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer, Bagi, the Monster of Mighty Nature
1985: The Adventures of Mark Twain, Night on the Galactic Railroad, Angel's Egg
1986: Castle in the Sky, Cat City, They Were Eleven
1987: Laughter and Grief by the White Sea, Wings of Honneamise, Phoenix: Space Chapter
1988: My Neighbor Totoro, Gandahar, Grave of the Fireflies
1989: Kiki's Delivery Service, The Journey to Melonia, Patlabor: The Movie

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.


The decade I was afraid to post because unless you're a die hard anime fan(see mjf), the options are quite limited. I just hope I've got something for each year.


I'm looking forward to the 70s thread. :) I wonder if I'll be the only one to have a film for every year.

1956 is the most recent year where I haven't seen any animated feature films. I'll have to fix that soon. Maybe I'll watch the Russian Twelve Months. It looks like that's probably the best choice for 1956, especially since I liked the Japanese Twelve Months which is similar.

Edit: Btw even without anime there's still at least 1 good film for every year of the 80s. My non-anime favorite of 1984 is The Soldier's Tale (and for the other years see my earlier post).

Edit: I just watched Twelve Months so now my next missing year is 1945. Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors seems to be the only choice for that year.

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

I've decided to dig up this topic since well...80s! Everybody loves the 80s! What a great decade for animated films, hopefully I'll inspire more posts!

1980- Bon Voyage Charlie Brown(And Don't Come Back)
1981- American Pop
1982- The Last Unicorn
1983- Barefoot Gen
1984- Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
1985- The Adventures of Mark Twain
1986- An American Tail
1987- The Brave Little Toaster
1988- My Neighbor Totoro
1989- Kiki's Delivery Service

That's my list for now! I always try to see more, so we'll see what happens. Also, if you don't like any films from a single year, don't list one. It isn't right to list a film you hate just because it was the only one you saw.

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

The animation board has been rather dead as of late. These topics have done well and there are still many who haven't posted in them yet. Also, I don't want them falling off the edge and getting deleted. So bump!

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

The decades topics return to the front. On a side not, I still find it kind of amusing that the OP of the 80s topic left three years blank.

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

Time to bump these before they disappear...

Re: Favorite Animated Film From Each Year of the 1980s.

Since the 90s topic has gotten attention, I'll bump the others. Besides, these are getting close to falling off the cliff.
