I'm with Bill here. Pocahontas is not exactly my favorite Disney but I do really enjoy it. It isn't a historical document, it is simply a story about the importance of respecting nature, of the difficulty overcoming man's natural inclination for conflict and greed, using the clash of cultures story of Jamestown as an example. I actually think it is a story that Miyazaki could appreciate (many of the themes mirror those in Nausicaa, which does them much much better). I think the songs are really strong here Just Around The Riverbend, Colors of the Wind, Mine Mine Mine are all quite good.

Out There from Hunchback is still my favorite Disney song ever though.

I know, but in the sake of logic: John Smith was a hunky blonde guy, he was a rather portly fellow with a long, scraggly beard.
Pfft. John Smith looked like this:

No, I'm fairly positive that's what John Smith looked liked.

Hercules is, without a doubt, the best film Disney Animation Studios has ever made, and it's not even close. It features the perfect blend of timeless comedy and topical jokes that work for audiences of any age, a time tested story, a wonderfully imaginative world design that puts anything Miyazaki or Pixar has created to shame, the best voice acting this side of Metal Gear Solid, and maintains as much reverence for the source material as can be reasonably expected considering the expectations people bring in to them when concerning Disney films.

Hercules (1997)

Quote
Usually even the most average of Disney animated features give me plenty to be happy about. Itís been a long time since I watched a Disney animated feature that gave me so little to say in the positive realm. The last Disney film that didnít impress me much was I believe 1948′s Melody Time. Iím sad to report that the streak of quality Disney films ends with 1997′s Hercules, provided of course that my faulty memory isnít forgetting another subpar film in the mix.
