Best Animated Feature Ever

I saw this movie 4 times in the theater. I went out and bought the book. I even watched the completely irrelevant sequel. This movie is so awesome that my friend named her son Nicodemus after a character from this film. It's quite a bit darker than 80's Disney flicks were. Characters curse, bleed and even die. Listen for a very young Shannen Doherty and Star Trek's Wil Wheaton as the Brisby kids. Sadly, the DVD is fullscreen so I'm waiting for a widescreen version before I buy it.

This 1982 Don Bluth Production is one of his best animated movie since he left Walt Disney studios and went on his own.

'The Secret of N-I-M-H' is truely a timeless tale of a widowed female mouse named Mrs. Brisby and her love, courage and most of all her determination to move her home away from the farmer Fitzgibbon's plow when spring came early and Timothy her youngest son had pneumonia and could not bee moved for three days, She tries to stop the farmers tractor and succeeds with the help of her busybody neihbor Auntie Shrew.

Mrs. Jonathan Brisby is going to need a lot more help in moveing her house and home to a protective part of the stone, With help from a lovelorn Crow and the mysterious Rats from the Rose bush and the wise advise from the Great and fearsome Owl, alone with a magic amulet, she does the impossable.

It's a timeless wounder that will transport the whole family to an enchanted world!

The Secret of NIMH

This movie stands as one of my all time favorites. The characters are wonderful and the story, while it takes a few leaps of logic, flows beautifully. Mrs. Brisby is one of the trully great animated characters, and it's a shame that she was so badly served by this movie's sequel.
