I was going through random posts and found one regarding animated films that never made it far. One that stood out was Ferngully, a movie that my siblings and I watched growing up. The Secret of NIMH is also part of the forgotten list, but I’ve watched that movie several times over the past couple of years. Not sure why they are in the list, to me they were popular enough. Or am I just lost in my own world?
There are several movies that I haven’t even heard about. Check out the list and see for yourself.
“If you’ve seen Avatar or EPIC, you already have a pretty good grasp on what Ferngully: The Last Rainforest is all about. In fact, there have been several debates about both films borrowing from it.
Starring Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) as a campy villain and the late Robin Williams as a zany bat, you’d think Ferngully would receive more attention. The American-Australian film centers on a young construction worker reduced in size by a magic spell. He ultimately allies with a civilization of fairies to save their rain forest home from Hexxus—a sinister, or even sensual, blob of pollution.
The film performed fairly well at the box office, achieving a worldwide gross of $32 million. Though critics didn’t exactly rave over the film, they didn’t hate it either, giving it generally pleasant reviews at the time.”
