Disney's darkest and most adult animated classic may also be its most underrated. Boasting skillfully layered and beautifully colored artwork, Hunchback of Notre Dame is a brutally honest, emotionally complex, and ultimately powerful story of corruption and redemption.

I've never seen this movie before. I don't know why but it seemed it would ever look dull by comparison with Beauty and the Beast. That just shows you how wrong I can be. :P I still prefer the latter but this one is a gorgeous movie (OMG the Cathedral!) as well and has a great strong female character. Why isn't Esmeralda a Disney princess? Hum?!

It has a darker tone than usual, and it is sexy, something I wasn't expecting. The gargoyles are funny and the songs didn't do that much for me apart from "God Help the Outcasts", "Hellfire" and "Someday". I've loved "Someday" for ages, since I heard it by Celtic Woman, how was it possible that I didn't knew it was from this movie?!
