When it comes to characters in entertainment media I’m not really asking for something deep and complex. As long as they are likeable, entertaining and provide a good role model that’s all I honestly care about. Sure I love me some philosophy and no doubt they’re characters I like with that trait but it’s not something I hold top priority when it comes to fictional characters. And needless to say, these characters I’m about to discuss provided the right inspiration and entertainment for me. So keep in mind, these are not what I consider the best but rather my personal favourite. If your favourite male and/or female character isn’t included here it’s either because I’ve never heard of them or they aren’t what I consider to be the most entertaining or who I would look up to. I won’t be discussing villains since I’ve kinda already did that with my Top 6 Animated Animal Villains And I am only choosing 5 for both lists because I can only talk about so much and these are not Top lists because it’s hard to choose a favourite. I’m starting with the female list because ladies first. lol
Well after revealing my Top 12 favourite games ever, I wondered what to do next. Then I thought I’d could get back into reviewing in the animation department. So doing a countdown on my favourite animated films of all time sprung to my mind. Like the last list, I wanted to wait a while to decide on what my favourite animated films are and it was definitely even harder than my video games list. Since I was a wee lad, I always loved watching animation and cartoons. Even when entering secondary school and coming a teenager, my love for animation didn’t die one bit. Now personally, I’m more of a writer than an animator, but I cannot deny that I have a lot of favourites in the animated film genre. So for this list, I am doing my favourite 15 animated films of all time. Why 15? Because that’s the…

Well, well, well. It’s about time I did something like this huh? Well I’ve had a good 2 and a half years to think about it, and my opinions on most of the games I’ve been known for reviewing have changed ever since. I know I’m almost a year late since last year, Gexup announced his retirement by showcasing his 12 favourite games of all time, but better late than never right? Now keep in mind guys, I’m not as much of a gamer as I use to be so my list will be VERY different from others on the site. And after all, this is my FAVOURITE games of all time. Not games that I think are the greatest. I am fully aware not everyone considers these games to be the best (hell, some of these games aren’t always considered the best in their respective franchises). But again, it’s all based on MY OPINION. MY OPINION. We good? We’re gud. Now before we start, here’s a list of things I want to address.
Like I said, nowadays I don’t game as much as I use to so don’t expect big name games like Zelda, Okami, Portal, the Donkey Kong Country trilogy (not that I dislike these games, I just haven’t played them in a while) or anything else the other reviewers on the site have added to appear on this list. Although I really wish I could try Tokyo Jungle if it wasn’t such a huge game to download.
Tie breakers are allowed. Cuz is mah leest.
Expect to see ALOT of platformers on this list. What? I’m one obsessed little fox. hehe
- No popular opinions will be supported.
- Did I forget to mention it’s MY OPINION? lol Alright, alright I’ll stop.
So with all that said and done, you guys can now experience Zookstar1000’s Top 12 Favourite Video Games of ALL TIME!
Time to continue this marathon once again and boy am I excited for this one. So, whilist the previous films I reviewed were adaptions on novels, the film I’m about to talk about is known as the first every Disney movie that has it’s own original story (HA! Told you!). It is also what was known as Disney’s best love story before Beauty and the Beast existed. You may have guessed it right about now but that film is:
Well, now that we have the two most popular Disney animal flicks, we can now move on to talk about the ones that are in the middle in terms of popularity. This one was made to make up for the financial flop, Fantasia had made. Since that movie’s budget was the price of two cruise ships, it did not make up for it due to low audiences seeing the film because of World War 2 starting. So Walt had to make a film with a much smaller budget. The result:
Well so far, the marathon is off to a good start. And after taking a lookback at Disney’s most popular animal flick The Lion King, we shall go back in time much further. Back when Walt himself was alive and making his first films. After the releases of fairytale classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio, Walt decided to take a new turn in his films. Realism. Sounds like a tricky job there doesn’t it? So, his attempt to do that was making a film based on the 1923 Austrian novel, Bambi, a Life in the Woods by Felix Salten, in which his version is simply entitled:
Eeyup. What The Lion King had expanded, Bambi had started. It is also worth mentioning that out of all the films Walt had made, this was his favourite movie that he had done. So how well does this film do and age without all the fantasy/fairytale elements? Well, let’s begin.
The film has a similar opening to The Lion King. A female doe gives birth to a fawn soon to become the new prince of the forest as all the other woodland creatures gather round to celebrate. As the fawn grows up through youth, he is taught how to walk and speak as he befriends a young rabbit named Thumper (his name because he likes to thump a lot with his foot, how creative) and later a skunk named Flower (although it can’t be his original name because Bambi had called him that when looking at flowers and the skunk liked it, but I guess he wasn’t named yet before that happened). Bambi spends most of his time with his mother who teaches him the way of life in the forest and the dangers of the hunter known as “Man”. And throughout the rest of the film is pretty much the life of Bambi from youth to adulthood.
