Movie Monday: Underrated Disney Films

There is a new series I am participating with other youtubers called Movie Monday! In this series we get topics and give 5 movies that fit that topic. This last Monday the topic was underrated films, so I decided to narrow the focus to Underrated Disney Films. I wanted to do 5 that most people haven’t heard of or are more obscure.

Here’s my list:

  1. Rocketeer- Charming superhero movie set in the 1930s with charismatic cast and a stand a lone story. This is refreshing to see in the days of the cinematic universes.
  2. Iron Will- a nice heart filled story about a boy who is trying to save his family farm and go to college enters a dog sled race in the great North. This is engaging and sweet with good performances and a nice inspirational ending.
  3. North Avenue Irregulars- very funny madcap comedy featuring some of the funniest ladies ever including Cloris Leachman and more.
  4. Pirate Fairy- I think all the Tinker Bell movies are underrated but this is my favorite one. It has the most links to the original Peter Pan which is fun and a nice story not centered on Tinker Bell. I like seeing the fairies loose their skills and having to figure out new skills. It’s just a lot of fun.
  5. John Carter- underrated space opera that has good battle scenes with a charismatic lead from Taylor Kitsch. I think people think because it was a box office bomb it must be a terrible movie but I don’t think this is terrible. In fact, I think it is a lot of fun!

So there are 5 underrated Disney films.  What do you think of them and what would be your 5?

  1. I’ve never seen Iron Will or John Carter.

    My 5 would be The Island at the Top of the World, Darby O’Gill and the Little People, The Happiest Millionaire, The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh probably.

    1. I love those films but havent seen Island at Top of the World and Family Band. Will have to check them out

  2. John Carter is a lot better then a lot of people think. The Rocketeer is one of those Hollywood made blockbusters that just works well. The North Avenue Irrgulars looks like a lot of fun. Will look for that one. Love the video format

    1. Thanks! I love you’re going through some of these old posts. Brings back good memories
