It really didn't belong in the Top 10, so this is good. Hero to Zero and Under the Sea next.
The only songs below a 10 for me. I gave "Belle" a 9, but after seeing the life-action re-make I had a moment and it's really a 10 now.
Under The Sea
Be Our Guest
Zero to Hero
I'll Make A Man Out Of You
Well since I already lost my 11, here's my top 10 from what's left...
My remaining non-10s xx.
Hopefully my 11 will be shared?
Hey I'd be perfectly fine with Reflection winning, if my 11 doesn't.
The first part of a tie for film #12 is here!
One Hundred And One Dalmatians (1961)
4 Points: @Aester
3 Points: @DJHazey, @funkyg, @Weslicious

83. 102 Dalmatians.
84. 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure.
85. The fact that none of these adaptations/sequels are even remotely as terrible as Dodie Smith's official 1967 sequel "The Starlight Brigade".
86. "The Starlight Brigade" being a mystery novel in which the puppies team up with stray dogs and a few cats to investigate why every human in the country has fallen into a deep sleep.

100. Actually pretty much all the films we've eliminated before this one, so well done everyone.
101. The relief of finishing this then remembering which song I have to eliminate next.
* dddd @kalonite has just reminded me that Perdita obviously doesn't actually give birth to 99 puppies, but the point still stands xo
It's just one of the first films I remember from my childhood and one of the ones I have seen the most. Cruella is a villain icon. It's odd because alot of @Animalia's points about preferring cats over dogs and animal cruelty should make me hate this movie and well I haven't seen it in a long time to be fair, but I had to include it because of how memorable it is to me.
Now @Animalia, have you seen that the Mass Effect Character rate thread is up. Please get @kalonite to vote too.
Yeah, yeah, cats are better than dogs, whatever... but which one's movie lasted longer?
Yeah, I love One Hundred and One Dalmatians, I might well put it in my Disney top 10. One of Disney's most lighthearted, fun and unpretentious features. And you know what, I think the xerography actually works for the kind of loose, comic story that it is - it makes One Hundred and One Dalmatians patently a cartoon, in a way that previous Disney features were not, and a great one at that. Also, Cruella might just be my favourite Disney villain ever, aside from, obviously, CHERNABOG.
(And just so I'm not accused of being unduly harsh on our feline friends, Lucifer from Cinderella is one of my favourite parts of that film. Figaro from Pinocchio rules too.)
I'll definitely be doing it for sure, and I'll try rope him in too!
Now wait a damn minute.
What the FUCK is "I Won't Say (I'm in Love)" doing out at FOURTEEN????? Why has a forum of pop girl worshipping homosexuals allowed this disgusting hate crime to take place? Why was @DJHazey's obvious troll, pro-Herculexit ballot not tossed into the underworld where it belongs? And what on Mount Olympus does @Sideout think she's doing?
An absolute disgrace.
Okay, I have to read that sequel because it sounds nuts. It looks like it's actually called "The Starlight Barking." Perhaps it's related to my favorite part of the movie, The Twilight Bark?
Like The Aristocats, I enjoy One Hundred and One Dalmatians for its insane premise. A children's movie about a woman who wants to make puppies into coats. Sure, Disney! Why not? I also really like the "Kanine Krunchies" scene and watch it way too often.
I sometimes tell my blue heeler that she would make a lovely fur coat, but only to tease her. (Her fur is more beautiful than a dalmatian's, in my opinion.)
Out of all those 101 things, this made me scream the loudest.
Excuse YOU tiramisu is an iconic desert, binch.
It's hilarious that I got the harsher dragging and I didn't even give "I Won't Say What Movie It Came From" the lowest score.
I'm excited to see what happens when Hero to Zero gets eliminated.
EPIC. AMAZING. Prime example of how your creativity, wit and dedication have made this rate such a complete joy to witness and be a part of!!! BRAVO!
Kii at this string!!!!!
Does this mean the dogs win? Hehe.
