THE RESCUERS: BERNARD & BIANCA versus THE SECRET OF NIMH: Which one do you prefer?

I know they are two totally different movies and there is a 6-year difference between them, but when I was a kid, I always associated these two films closely together. When I was a child, I remember thinking about these two films, and I was always merging them together in my mind. I always knew there was a scarier one out of the two, but I wasn't sure which one. I just bought the DVD of Bernard & Bianca recently and now i'm curious to watch Secret of Nihm again. On the surface, Bernard & Bianca is a pretty charming flick, but for a Disney flick, I thought the basic premise is pretty creepy - almost sounds like a Tim Burton film to me: A creepy woman and a slobby dude kidnap/threaten a poor innocent orphan girl whom they use as a slave to search for a diamond in a claustraphobic well. And she gets taken to some run-down house in a middle of a swamp in the middle of nowhere. And the orphan fantasizes about being adopted. Pretty heavy things for a Disney flick, that I didn't notice when watching as a child. I haven't seen it in ages but I'm assuming that it was THE SECRET OF NIMH which was the much scarier/darker one.

Now that most people in here are adults, which one do you prefer more?

Even though they both star mice, I like them both. Secret of NIMH is definitely darker of the two, but that's why i like it. Creeped me out a bit as a kid, but I really appreciate it for what it is today. Actually, I think I prefer Rescuer's Down Under to the original movie, but truth be told, haven't seen the original in some time. I'll have to see it again...

ANUBIS, do you think RESCUERS DOWN UNDER is worth buying? (the anamorphic version of course). It's a good disney movie? Another disney movie that I have avoided seeing for ages is Treasure Planet. I had assumed it was going to be as bland/uninteresting as Titin A.E. I had bought the DVD at a garage sale for $1 a year ago and only last week I finally got around to watching it, and it turned out to be one of the best recent Disney films I've seen. I think I like it more than Alladin, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast.

Tough call, I love them both! Rescuers wasn't as heavy as NIMH.

Rescuers Down Under is underrated. Definitely better than the first film.
