It’s that time of year again, when everyone hauls out their “best of” lists that are always subjective and no-one ever really agrees on anyway. Well, being the objective, engineering type, I’ve decided instead to use Amazon.com’s sales as a guide to how animated films have fared this year.
To clarify, this list is just DVD sales and is sorted after doing a search for “animation” in the Movies & TV department and is also for films that are dated as being released in 2011, hence there are some films that while released theatrically in 2010, did not come out on DVD until 2011.
So without further adieu, here’s the top 10 animated films of 2011 according to Amazon.com (backwards of course):
2. The Smurfs
And number 1, which you could probably have guessed anyway is…
Cars 2! (which must be selling like hotcakes; $19.73 for a single disc, yikes!)
