  1. I have not seen Cars 2 and wasn't there a Planes movie?
  2. The Good Dinosaur
    Kind 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.
  3. Cars
    I 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.
  4. Monsters University
    I've seen it once. Don't remember much.
  5. Toy Story 2
    I like it okay. Not a big Jessi fan.
  6. WALL-E
    I 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.
  7. Toy Story 3
    The 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.
  8. A Bug's Life
    I 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.🐛
  9. 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.
  10. Brave
    I 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.
  11. Up
    What to even say? Beautiful, for sure. Hilarious, archetypal characters. Gloriously realistic love-story montage. Dug and Kevin. 💙
  12. Ratatouille
    I 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!"
  13. Inside Out
    This 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.
  14. Toy Story
    So brilliantly original. Highly rewatchable. I think this movie shaped my generation a little bit.
  15. Finding Nemo
    Gorgeous. Funny. So rewatchable. It does seem about 17 minutes too long. Nemo's baby voice makes me cringe but overall 10/10 recommend.
  16. 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.
