    This was the first time I have watched The Secret of NIMH in probably decades and there were a couple of aspects that held me back from enjoying it as much as I remembered:

    1) It has been so long since I've seen it that I conflated events that occur in the movie with events that only occur in the book. I kept waiting for certain scenes, like the harrowing escape from the rosebush when NIHM shows up to exterminate…

    An early animated film that actually celebrates the power and courage of moms!!!!? And satirizes society!!!!!?? And is humorous, heartbreaking, magical all at once!!!!!??? This really does exist. And I've loved it ever since I can remember. Thank you, Mr. Bluth. You the real MVP.

    I'm not a huge proponent of Don Bluth's work, but this adaptation of the children's novel is certainly excellent. The film's atmosphere is truly impressive, Mrs. Brisby is an excellent heroine, and the story is engaging and thought provoking. I love the ideas about knowledge and morality, and how they decide how we use technology and decide where to go with society.

    Another Don Bluth animation I missed out on. Watching The Secret of NIMH was a surreal and almost hypnotic experience. Compared to alot of animated fare, it's pretty dark-natured and deals with several mature themes. Here, we are told the story of a windowed mother mouse named Mrs. Brisby, who is struggling to care for her severely ill son suffering from pneumonia. She lives under a farm, and as tractor is starting up early which could destroy her home, she…

    Gorgeously animated, but at once too simple and too over stuffed

    I watched this 1000 times as a kid. Don't remember it well, but it must have been good to demand that kind of re-watching.

    I don't see why so many people really love this film, it was nothing exceptional.

    Con una buena línea argumental en donde se combina la ciencia con elementos mágicos en una atmósfera natural.
    La animación es hermosa y empleando técnicas bastantes amplias para su época como la banda sonora igual de asombrosa.
    Es una película esta llena de magia.
