Disney Question

The Great Mouse Detective

I couldn't call myself a Disney fan without watching this movie, since a lot of Disney fans enjoyed it. I just finished watching it.

Enjoyable! Very, enjoyable!

Basil is now up there with my favorite characters, he is quite a facinating personality. I enjoyed the character designs, and the animation was amazing.
The score is satisfactory, and the songs are nothing special, but they get the job done.

The story kept me interested and I laughed.

Growing up watching cartoons with voices by greats like Mel Blanc and Rob Paulson, I always take notice of the voice acting. I thought all the characters had good voice overs behind him. I liked that Ratigan wasn't given a deep and sinister voice that would match his large frame, but rather a more normal pitch. It was more humorous and believable.

About Ratigan. I liked him as a villian and I think he's under appricited. He's probably one of the most evil in my opinion, a totall asshole if you ask me.

I was touched by the mouse trap and Basil being beat up by Ratigan scenes.

So summery is I liked it, and I don't know why it took me nearly 18 years to watch it.

INTERESTING TRIVIA!
* An innovative application of computer technology can be seen in the climactic scene where Basil faces Ratigan in a final confrontation inside the turning and thrashing gearworks of Big Ben. The 54 moving gears, winches, ratchets, beams, and pulleys were literally drawn by the computer, and created a unique background for the characters, which had been animated in the usual way

*Was the 26 movie in the Disney canon, coming out right after The Black Cauldron. It was well recieved (ANYTHING would be well recieved after the Black Cauldron)

I have seen the full movie only once and I also found it enjoyable. I love Basil's character as well. He's very intelligent and somewhat humorous. I also like the villain. They picked the right voice actor for the part, Vincent Price, who has said that that was his favorite role he has ever played. Overall, a greatly underrated movie that should be enjoyed by more people. :)
