I thought it might be fun to take a look at some other rankings. Don’t worry; with one exception they’re all mercifully shorter than mine.

  • Here’s one from Buzzfeed, which ranks all 55 movies.
  • Here’s another that ranks all 55.
  • This one ranks through Big Hero 6.
  • This one ranks through Frozen.
  • Another that ranks through Frozen.
  • This one ranks through Wreck-It Ralph.
  • This one ranks through Tangled.
  • This is the only one that’s as in-depth as mine. It ranks through Tangled, but unfortunately it still had three left to go and there hasn’t been a post on the blog in well over a year.

Looking over them you can see that even though there are some films where there is general agreement, every author’s biases and idiosyncrasies slip through. With the exception of the last one, I combined the scores of the other lists with my own to get each film’s average score. Here they are ranked by those averages. Please note that Zootopia is only ranked in three lists, Big Hero 6 in four, Frozen in six, and Wreck-It Ralph and Winnie the Pooh in seven. All other films take their average from all eight lists.
