Here’s my list, destroying most of your picks!
Animated Movie based on TV Series: The Powerpuff Girls Movie (also considered: Transformers: the Movie, purely for the trauma involved)
PG-13 and plus: tempted to double-up with the foreign category, but I won’t. I’ll say Persepolis.
Stop-Motion: Corpse Bride I guess? I don’t know, y’all took the good ones.
Foreign: Was there a reason nobody did anything Japanese? Any of Satoshi Kon’s stuff is great, I’ll pick Paprika. Tokyo Godfathers and Millennium Actress are also amazing.
Movies based on comic strips: Uhhhh Prince Valiant! Marmaduke! I’ll take Flash Gordon.
Cartoon based on live action franchise: good call on Men in Black, I’ll take Batman: the Animated Series as the obvious counter to that.
