Saw Wall-E this past weekend. I really enjoyed it, but it doesn't crack my top 5 of Pixar favorites. How about you? Here's the complete List.


1. Toy Story 2
2. Finding Nemo
3. The Incredibles
4. Ratatouille (may even be tied for 3rd)
5. Toy Story
6. Wall E
7. Bugs Life
8. Monsters Inc
9. Cars (ugh. I really despised this one)

Mine will be different than most, cause I really didn't like some that people seemed to love (Incredibles, Wall E).

1. Toy Story 2.
2. Ratatouille
3. Toy Story
4. Monsters Inc
5. Cars
6-9. The Incredibles, Bugs Life, Finding Nemo, Wall E (I disliked them all equally).

1   The Incredibles
2   Monsters Inc
3   Finding Nemo
4   Ratatouille
5   Wall E
6   Bugs Life
7   Toy Story
8   Toy Story 2
9   Cars

I was never that big a fan of the Toy Story Movies, at least as compared to the others.  Cars I was really disappointed in, though I enjoyed it.  I might even like it more than the toy story movies.  The Incredibles is one of those movies which has simply gotten better over time for me (and I loved it when it first came out).  Going in, I thought the premise was going to be stupid, but it blew me away.

HM - Iron Giant (not a Pixar movie per se, but since Brad Bird is now at Pixar, I will grant it pseudo-pixar status, as it is on a level with the Pixar movies, and other animation is not, IMHO.)

I need to revisit Incredibles now that I don't have a pissed gf to worry about.  That may have influenced my viewing of it a bit.

The Incredibles is No. 1 by a pretty far margin for me.  In fact, if you told me to choose between and Incredibles sequal or a Dark Knight sequal, I think I might go Incredibles.  It may be the perfect super hero movie.

Seeing this list I realize my kids grew up in the middle of it. Therefore I have only seen about 1/2 the list.

I would go with...

1. Toy Story
2. The Incredibles
3. Toy Story 2
4. Bug's Life
5. Monsters, Inc.

Iron Giant is probably my favorite animated movie of all time.  I haven't seen it in a while (but do own it). Looks like I'll be digging it out!

Top 4 are hard for me, but I gave weight to the ones that have been around a while. I suppose over time they could change (I found Wall E to be really charming, but it's too recent).

1. Bugs Life
2. Toy Story 2
3. The Incredibles
4. Wall E
5. Toy Story
6. Ratatouille (may even be tied for 3rd)
7. Finding Nemo
8. Monsters Inc
9. Cars

Iron Giant is great. My all time favorite animated movie of any kind is probably Nightmare Before Xmas.

Edit: wow, can't believe the Bugs Life hate. I think it has the best balance of adult/kids content. Lots of clever stuff in it.

Just remember is mostly comparative hate. A Bugs Life may be low on the list but since Pixar movies all rate 8-9 out of 10 on my scale, that's not bad.  That's why I had trouble ranking these, they are all pretty high up there.

5. Ratatouille
6. Finding Nemo
7. Toy Story
8. Bugs Life
9. Monsters Inc.

It's been a long time since I have seen the bottom three so it's always possible that they could move up. Based on how I'm remembering them all that's how I would rank them.

They came out over so many years that it's a little hard to compare them as the CG animation state-of-the-art has improved. Toy Story was simply amazing for its day, less so in light of subsequent movies. But what the heck, I'll play anyway.

1. Ratatouille
2. The Incredibles
3. WALL-E
4. Monsters Inc
5. Finding Nemo
6. Toy Story 2
7. Bugs Life
8. Toy Story
9. Cars? (Haven't seen it)

My list looks a lot like Lordnine's.

Funny how people's perceptions differ. I've found I liked the movies more that I was least hyped about seeing. That's why WALL-E and Ratatouille fell out of the top 5. I was so hyped going in, they ended up being utter disappointments.  WALL-E *only* ranks #6 because of the first half of the movie. I thought the second half was crap.

1.  Finding Nemo
2.  Toy Story 2
3.  Toy Story
4.  Monster's Inc
5.  Cars
6.  A Bug's Life
7.  The Incredibles
8.  Wall-E
9.  Ratatouille

To me the magic of Pixar moves were that they were always appealing both to adults and children at the same time.     I balanced my ratings to take into account which movies my wife and I loved the most with my kids' choices factored in.   (if it was only based on kids then Cars would be at the top of the list easily, followed closely by Finding Nemo).

The bottom three -- which is consistently the favorites of many on this forum -- are my kids' least favorites.   I can pop those in, and the kids are playing with something else in 5 minutes.     I also found Ratatouille in particular a big time yawner.     Critics loved it.   I hated it.

I haven't seen it yet, but actually have Wall-E on the way from Netflix. Should be here today in all it's Blu-Ray glory. I'm halfway expecting it to take the #2 spot just because I like the concept so much.

It's a cute little story. What else are you going to do with those 90 minutes? Better to have watched and yawned than never to have watched at all.
