suggestion of the day

Let's imagine you decide you really want to watch a Disney movie about a young kid that nobody takes seriously discovering the path to a secret cache of treasure and, along with several amusing characters, going on a wild adventure to an inhospitable realm. Despite the antagonist's best efforts, you wish him to eventually triumph and in the process gain self-confidence and learn more about himself. So you go to the movie store and decide to pick up both Treasure Planet and Atlantis.

If you only have time to watch one movie, watch Treasure Planet.

If, on the other hand, you have time to watch two movies, I recommend watching Treasure Planet twice.

Actually, if you just want a good movie in general? Treasure Planet's pretty damn good.

Atlantis, on the other hand, goes to amazing lengths to avoid both character development and suspense. Seriously, it's actually impressive. You might want to give that one a pass, unless, like me, you want to marvel at ways to fail at writing good plot.

Treasure Planet's good though. Go watch that one.
