You give up a few things, chasing a dream.

Treasure Planet (2002)
Chosen by Sabine Woolnough who had this to say: 'Treasure Planet ist nichts besonderes, aber ich mochte es wirklich. es ist schon, ein bosewicht mit herz zu sehen.'

The dvd lent to me was a German copy and Sabine was a little worried I wouldn't be able to understand the menu to start the film. Of course the first thing the dvd does is ask for a language so with my typical snark I informed her of this.
And this is why todays introduction is not in English.
This is similar to Disney's Atlantis effort but without the interesting visual style. It works for the most part, when it plays it straight, a reasonably exciting updating of Treasure Island (though yet another Hollywood movie with daddy issues - sigh). But it has a couple of hideously annoying comic relief characters in an irritating creature that changes shape all the time and a crazy robot voiced by Martin Short.
Only one song but it is pretty crappy.
