Alpha and Omega

This movie had potential, but failed. I wouldn't call it a truly bad movie, but it's just...There. Nothing about it that could really stick out, it's easily forgettable.
The animation is decent, however the character models and anatomy looked really off and weird, disturbing at times.
Backgrounds are one of the redeeming qualities, being pretty nice to look at and feeling alive.
The movie's interpretation of the wolves' howl was pretty interesting, and I enjoyed it.
Plotline wasn't very interesting, it kept being too distracted by continuing out-of-place humor that I couldn't get invested in it properly. However, I must admit that Humphrey's feelings were pretty relatable, and I liked his character. The contrast between him and Kate was pretty nice too.
This one felt like a basic popcorn movie that leaves no lasting impressions. While it is not a complete failure, unlike all of its sequels, it really can be ignored.

This movie is so underrated, when it REALLY SHOULDN'T BE. I love this movie so much. Everything about it. The story, the backgrounds, the animation, the atmosphere, the characters, the music...Everything works so well.
First of all, I love how many conflicts this movie has, both internal and external: (SPOILER ALERT) Olivers torn loyalty between his friends and Jennifer, Dodger having to sort out whether he values his gang identity or actual relationships more, Fagin's external struggle with Sykes and internal moral conflict...I could go on. (END OF SPOILERS) All of them work together really well and bring a very interesting and emotionally compelling story.
The music is fantastic. I love the 80's music style, and it's done especially well in this movie. Every song was great and didn't feel out of place - they all worked well to convey the emotions and struggles of the characters.
Sketchy look of the backgrounds looked excellent and did a great job maintaining the atmosphere of the always-in-a-hurry NYC.
Characters were all very nice, and there wasn't a single one of them that could have been left out - they all served a role in the story, contributing to the conflicts. All of the designs were also really great and distinct.
I honestly cried many times throughout the entire movie - there are many relatable, believable moments in the movie that just tug at the heartstrings with their purity.

Amazing, touching movie. Definitely one of the greatest Disney works, and one of my all-time favorite animated movies for many reasons.

Excellent, one of the best children's series airing nowadays, it definitely deserves all the attention it gets.
Characters are incredibly well designed and thought out, their personalities unique and consistent throughout the series.
Plotlines are very interesting, have a great balance of comedy and serious moments. While some resolutions might be hasty and rushed, I'd like to blame that on the 22-minute time limit rather than poor writing, because, well...The writing definitely isn't poor. Each episode and each season gives something new and refreshing to both original stories and those who have been done in previous TV series and movies.
I especially like the morals, life lessons that each episode gives. Those are honestly really great, useful for both children and adults.
All in all, interesting plotlines, great visuals and character development, also perfect, relatable morals all put together to one great TV show.

Surprising and inspiring.
You can call me oblivious, but for the most of the movie I honestly didn't foresee the direction this movie would take, and most of the choices that would be made or revealed. It started out as a story of one character trying to prove the world wrong and destroy stereotypes, but then it expanded while taking a different direction too. And its amazing.
The Zootopia's design is amazing, and it is obvious how much work was put in it, because it looks very believable and sorted out to the smallest detail - all the areas, cooperation of different species of animals, their personalities, etc. The city felt really alive, an inspiration for tons of brainstorming, fanwork ideas.
Plotline was great - surprising, yet consistent, with great balance of comedy and serious situations.
Characters were really likeable and believable, their personalities and goals were fleshed out very well, and were never forgotten throughout the movie.

Excellent modern animated movie, surprising and well thought out. Definitely one of the better nowadays Disney's works.

The Lion Guard
Rated it: 3.5

Harmless and cute continuation of the great Lion King trilogy, and a great way to introduce younger audience to this classic.
Sure, it takes some time for those who have long known the original movies to get used to different voices, models and roles of the main characters, but it's a minor thing honestly.
Animation wise it looks okay, nothing too spectacular. The movement and basic models of the characters seem off, but I honestly don't expect more from TV show. The backgrounds are pretty nice,not too impressive, but pretty enough to look at. Music is honestly one of the harder aspects to judge - while there are many songs that just feel like filler and have no redeeming value whatsoever other than to move the plot along, some are indeed catchy and nice. So, I guess I should say the music is mediocre.
The plotlines, though predictable, rushed and suited for younger audiences, are still nice and don't actually get annoying unlike they do in some shows.

Yet, the thing that I like the most about The Lion Guard is that it makes the Pridelands feel much more alive. In the original trilogy all we get to see of Pridelands outside our main lion characters and sidekicks are just animals playing cameo roles and walking around to serve as a background. In this series, animals other than lions are constantly used in the plotlines, get their own personalities and are there to actually serve the story. This way we get to learn more about the lands themselves outside just the Pride Rock inhabitants, which, in my opinion, is really nice and entertaining.

Fun series, definitely worth seeing if you're a loyal Lion King fan.
