Watched today The Great Mouse Detective (1986)

I really like this movie, it’s relative success after the fiasco of The Black Cauldron convinced Disney to keep making animated features, and it mixes Sherlock Holmes with “mouse world”… two things I’m a sucker for.

The (over-the-top) cherry on the cake is the brilliant Vincent Price as the chief baddie, Ratigan. Vincent even sings two songs! (swoon)

Add in the bad guy’s airship, the phonograph triggered death trap, and the CLOCKWORK QUEEN and you’ve got a wonderful little steampunk classic (for all ages, as they say).

Recommended.

(as a bonus if you really like gears, the climax is set in a certain London landmark is all gears and is the first major CGI scene ever)
