Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

^Totally agree about "Pocahontas" and "Lill & Stitch". The latter is a superb movie.

Out of the ones in the poll though, I'm gonna say "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". One of the few movies that was actually made even better by the Swedish dub. And it's pretty damned great in the original version.

Case in point for the Swedish dub:



The sheer power of the Swedish voice artists voice still stuns me. Also the best villain song ever by Disney.
Despite my feelings about Hunchback (which largely result from the unsympathetic main character), I love Hellfire. I think I prefer the original English version, though. Something about the voice of the Swedish singer seems discordant with the rest of the music to me; I think his singing may be too uniformly deep (or perhaps I lack the deep bass hearing needed to fully appreciate it).
That's what I love about it, it's just so forceful that it drives in the characters lust even more, makes the point even harder. Which is not a bad thing in such a emotionally honest thing as a musical.
