Helpful to distinguish "Top 20" from "20 BEST"--
(I first looked at the list and thought "Spirited Away made that much money??")

It's okay, but seems like these lists are getting a little Default from several years ago:
"Ghost in the Shell" aside, only a column from '00-'03 would put "Chicken Run" up as Aardman representative, but not "Wallace & Grommit:CotWR", or at the very commercial-mainstream least, "Flushed Away"?
(They acknowledge W&G, but have the feeling that was more of a last-minute disclaimer, after noticing Chicken Run was still getting on the lists....Even when it came out, we were saying "Well, it's not W&G, but it's a close enough substitute, just to have one in theaters.")
