PIXAR MOVIES, RANKED
Inspired by @gwcoffey
- •I have not seen Cars 2 and wasn't there a Planes movie?
- •The Good DinosaurKind of hated everything except the landscapes. I'm not one to be negative so I'll just stop there instead of listing all the things I did not like.
- •CarsI don't like Owen Wilson's voice. Is that a dumb enough reason for you? It wasn't a bad movie but it also was not as good as Turbo, as far as NASCAR-related animated movies go.
- •Monsters UniversityI've seen it once. Don't remember much.
- •Toy Story 2I like it okay. Not a big Jessi fan.
- •WALL-EI loooove the idea of this but I just could not get behind the idea of mixing animation with actual humans. Adored WALL-E himself, the feel and the message.
- •Toy Story 3The daycare world was brilliant. When they were all about to die in that incinerator I was mortified bc there truly seemed like no way out!!! I was f-r-e-a-k-i-n-g out! But damn those little aliens showed up right on time.
- •A Bug's LifeI have always really loved this one. It was a Pixar film that I loved before I knew what Pixar really was. The characters, the story, the visuals. It was and is so clever and stunning. 💚Heimlich.🐛
- •Monsters, Inc.Talk about world building! The creatures! The factory! Randall! Roz! It's not one I'll choose to watch often, but when I do I laugh a lot.
- •BraveI hated this movie the first two times I saw it. I loved the look, the voices and the music but the mother-daughter story didn't do it for me. Probably bc I don't have a very deep relationship with my own mom. I like it more every time I watch it. And it just occurred to me that it might be due to the fact that now I'm a mother.
- •UpWhat to even say? Beautiful, for sure. Hilarious, archetypal characters. Gloriously realistic love-story montage. Dug and Kevin. 💙
- •RatatouilleI really love this movie. I put it on in the background when I have a lot of cooking to get done. The Parisian setting also hooks me. The line quoted most from this is, "One can get too familiar with vegetables, you know!"
- •Inside OutThis one is currently on replay at our house. It's fun but deep. Honestly, it's a vehicle to make me feel deep feelings when I get too shallow or vapid or apathetic about life. The lesson of self-sacrifice as modeled through Bing Bong is the number one thing I want to teach my children.
- •Toy StorySo brilliantly original. Highly rewatchable. I think this movie shaped my generation a little bit.
- •Finding NemoGorgeous. Funny. So rewatchable. It does seem about 17 minutes too long. Nemo's baby voice makes me cringe but overall 10/10 recommend.
- •The Incredibles(This one also feels about 20 minutes too long. Perhaps it's actually my attention span that's the issue.) This movie has been in my top five all-time favorite movies for over a decade. I think they showed it for free at my university auditorium and I went both nights. Alone. I'm all about Helen's parenting style. The kid's dialogue always felt so authentic. It's so quotable. The villain is ridiculous and somehow lovable. I just think it's grand.
