  • Dinosaur 2000

    Rewatched 23 Feb, 2015

    This may be the worst animated movie that Disney ever released, and I've seen The Black Cauldron.

    This movie has a brilliant cast. I'm not going to name all of them, but they're all fantastic. I will mention that this is the movie that brought both Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell and Justin Long to my attention.
