    When I was a kid, we had a lot of VHS tapes and basic cable, so we taped a lot of shows off cable to watch later. The Secret of NIMH, Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan, and Amadeus used to all reside on the same VHS tape. I had an interesting childhood cause I'd regularly watch all three. This was one of those go to films for me and my sister. It was one we could both agree…

    I know I watched this when I was a kid and did not like it. I was not a fan of dark animated films as a child. I cannot say I super liked it this time through either. The tone seemed both too childish and too dark at the same time, and I never felt like it fully reconciled itself. The animation was cool though.

    Director and artist Don Bluth, and several other animators, tired of slipping standards at Disney at the time, defected to form their own production company. First working out of Bluth’s garage, before moving to office space in Study City, California. The Secret of NIMH was their first major feature project, and was put together in just over two years at a of cost approximately 7 million dollars. A difficult budget and schedule, even back in the 1980’s.

    As a piece…

    A true classic, though its nearly three decades old now... it still hits its mark.

    Reviewing the Commentary #2:
    The Secret of NIMH- provided by director/producer Don Bluth and producer Gary Goldman

    Animation films on home video rarely feature commentaries (there's not too many on the Disney releases for some odd reason), so when I saw that my Blu-ray copy of one of my favorite (and one of the most underrated) animated films ever made had a featured commentary, I was excited to hear what the crew had to say about the movie.

    And what…

    It's a great movie & I loved the ending, but I still wouldn't call it one of the all time great animated films.

    This was a great animated film that followed a great character. Almost immediately I cared abut this character and when she got in a threat I was worried for her. She had to find to get her son 'Timmy' a cure to stop his sickness which brought us through different story acres which brought us to what 'the secret of NIMH' was! On the surface the story seems quite simple but when you watch the film it unravels to something…

    Bluth animation was the Dreamworks to Disney’s Pixar in the 80s and early 90s: passable but mostly just pointless in comparison. Secret of NIMH doesn’t break that sad rule of thumb. A dull and heavy-handed PETA commercial that amounts to basically nothing. Unless you grew up with this, don’t bother.

    I'm surprised this one passed me by as a kid, seeing as my mom was pretty dutiful about buying every animated film in a clamshell box for me and my sister during the bulk of my childhood. That probably explains how I ended up seeing stuff like Happily Ever After (which also stars Dom DeLuise) or The Princess and the Goblin. Actually I don't think that The Princess and the Goblin has a clamshell box. Whatever, that's neither here nor…
