"Everyone needs to stop complaining about the damn lion king. In case you hadn't realized, the list is "greatest animated films", not "greated animated children's films". Sure, it's a fun family adventure and all, but it's cliched, essentially the same as Bambi, and doesn't leave a mature audience with a sense of wonderment. I watched it when I was 16 and found it incredibly mediocre. I can guarantee that if any of you had seen some of the incredible anime out there aimed at a more mature audience (or even the kid's ones with underlying mature themes) you would not be complaining the way you are. Watch Princess Mononoke, grave of the fireflies, or porco russo and you'll realize that."
