During the same year we received mainstream Disney hits such as “Pocahontas” and “Toy Story,” the studio released this smaller animated film that has since gained a cult following over the years that few others can beat. The film follows the story of Max and his efforts to get the girl of his dreams, leading to a crazy promise that ends up in a wacky, cross-country adventure with his dad, Goofy. With its mix of relatable family themes, gut-busting humor and pure 90’s goodness, it’s no wonder that “A Goofy Movie” has continued to entertain audiences for over 20 years.

Based off the hugely successful 1992 “Batman: The Animated Series,” “Mask of the Phantasm” has been cited as not only one of the best Batman movies, but also the greatest animated superhero film of all time. When a ghost-like killer is axing off mob leaders all over Gotham City, Batman is blamed and so Bruce Wayne must suit up as the dark knight once again to bring the true culprit to justice. Wayne’s discoveries force him to look back to his past and his search brings him to the conclusion that his old nemesis, the Joker, is to blame. The gothic art style borrowed from the show combined with the film’s higher quality of animation, along with its layered characters and superb voice acting, have helped this cult hit achieve major acclaim over the years despite its original failed box office run.
