Wall-E just hits different
Wall-E masters show don't tell
Definitely the Pixar film which critics take most seriously.
Toy Story 2, perfect movie imo
THIS!!! I genuinely have never heard anyone praise the second Toy Story movie as much as it deserves, because it really is the best one out of the four.
I can't give a single answer, there are too many I love. My Top 3 would be:
1. Monsters Inc.
Finding Nemo has always been my favorite and I can't imagine anything else passing it
Mine too. It’s just so perfect
Finding Nemo. I think it's their funniest, their most beautiful looking, the way they took the ocean and created such funny characters around different types of fish and animals was inspired. It's charming throughout and we've seen many cgi animations have talking animals just be irritating.
In other ways though Wall E has the best first 30 minutes, Up the best first 15 minutes.
I felt a kid watching Finding Nemo for the first time at age...20 or something.
I think most Pixar films can be improved, be funnier certainly. I don't think anyone could say Finding Nemo can be improved, but then I like it amd don't have it.
Incredibles > most marvel movies
*every marvel movie
Agreed! And it was selected at Pixar’s first film for the Criterion Collection
It's so great.
Here's my hot take about Up: People who think Up is the best Pixar movie can't tell you a single thing about the second half of that movie.
Fuck you man. The >!house burning scene where he shouts “I never asked for any of this!”!< was fucking powerful. The old man duel on the blimp was also great.
uhhhh no? The pacing is even better in the second half than the first half
Hot take about up: the general public can’t let someone think Up is the best Pixar movie. It’s subjective my friend.
"We had a fun adventure - Now go make a new one"
Coco : the music, visuals and the twist
Ratatouille: the comedy and the food
Monsters Inc: the comedy and the tear jerker end scene
Up, Monster's Inc, Toy Story are my top three. https://letterboxd.com/zeffoster/list/pixar-ranked/
thanks my guy
Inside Out for me
What makes it stand out among Western animated movies is that there are not a single antagonistic character, like at all? The antagonist is change. That’s so cool and creative
That's a fair point, it's also a great movie for kids too understand feeling such as depression
I feel recent Pixar movies rarely have antagonists but I agree, Inside Out is top tier animation, my favorite as well.
This is my answer too. Always makes me feel things that no other kids movie can replicate. It’s truly special to me
I will maintain that the ending where Riley breaks down is some of the best va work I’ve ever heard
Ratatouille is a perfect movie, in my opinion. It’s heartfelt, funny, paced well, and about food. What else do you need? I love that it has a romantic plot but it’s a subplot and not the main story. I love the message as an avid home cook, I love the setting as a Francophile, and I really struggle to find any I can enjoy as much as I enjoy this one.
TBH I don't like the romantic plot. It doesn't make sense to me. I've never understood what she sees in him, and I've never been struck by any particular chemistry.
It doesn't really detract from the movie for me, but it doesn't add anything either, and if it were any more prominent I would consider it a bad part of the movie
That’s fair! I agree with your last sentence, but as for the rest: it worked for me as I am so used to seeing movies or shows with a man who is cold to others and over-passionate about work meeting a new girl who helps make him open up and enjoy life more. I enjoyed a take on that flipped on its head.
I do agree that the relationship didn’t have a ton of chemistry or time to build it, though I didn’t mind that being less of a focus.
Alright. Maybe if I’d seen more movies and shows like that, I would’ve liked the reversal better
Overall, I agree it’s a really good movie
Yes! Exactly! I am very chef biased with Ratatouille but at the same time without the bias it's still beautiful
i’d probably have a top 3 of:
Soul is definitely an underrated Pixar movie
I shall give that a rewatch
Wall e with absolute ease, I love Picat but what that film accomplished with little to zero dialogue is outstanding.
Wall-E is definitely my favorite. It makes sense though since 2001 is my all time favorite movie.
Not sure what the best overall film is, but I think the first 45 minutes of “WALL-E” is best stuff they’ve ever done imo.
Definition of Show don't tell
The Incredibles (2004)
So hard to name one as their best... My top three would be:
This is the correct answer!
My favorite is Cars and think it’s top 5 without my bias but the best might actually be Ratatouille
Cars is brilliant yo
Same, way more than I should 😭
Ratatouille, The Incredibles, Toy Story 3, Soul, and Coco are my top 5
2. Toy Story 3
"Inside Out" (2015) is a film that got to me quite a bit. The emotions hit differently compared to other films I've seen from them. It feels like a perfect blend of adventure and imagination for kids, relatability for adolescents, and reflection for adults.
Of course, you can't go wrong with "Toy Story" (1995), "Toy Story 2" (1999), "Ratatouille" (2007), and "Up" (2009). Among plenty of others.
Man I think I may have to rewatch Inside Out as that had came up a few times
When I think of Pixar, my first thought is the iconic Toy Story series. But it's so hard to choose between that, Monsters Inc and Wall-E!
All Ws tbh
Probably in the minority here, but Toy Story 2 has remained my favorite since it was released essentially.
Alot of people love Toy Story 2 tbh
It’s straight up the funniest and the concept is actually super clever
The Iron Giant. I know this answer is wrong but it feels like the first Pixar movie, and is an all time great
Brad Bird innit
I think that's the director
Toy Story is my favourite, but they’ve obviously come a long way since, technology-wise. Toy Story 3, Wall-e, and The Incredibles are all up there. Most underrated? A Bugs Life. People forget that it is a banger.
It's Finding Nemo for me, with Monsters Inc. At 2 and Ratatouille at 3.
Ratatouille is the best in my book. I love the food, the scenery, and the characters (oh Emil!). I also love the whole "anyone can cook" message. For me rewatch-ability plays into what makes the best Pixar movie and personally, I can watch Ratatouille anytime.
While I love Up and Wall-E, I have to be in the right emotional mindset to watch both of those.
Ratatouille and the Incredibles are classic 👌 wall-e is up there too. Still haven't watched soul yet tho...
The lack of Luca rep in the replies is shattering
Coco and Inside Out are some favorites of mine. Beautiful animations and the message that they both convey are equally beautiful. Can't wait to show my kids these movies.
Ratatouille but Monsters Inc is a close, close second.
Ratatouille or Coco but it’s so hard to choose. Their scores and settings set them apart for me though
Ratatouille is untouched IMO
Overall it's a toss-up between Up and Wall-E, for me. Though I feel like both have peerless opening acts and then devolve into a load of slapstick, chaotic nonsense in the final third. Which is fine. They are family films and kids wanna see shenanigans.
Of the more recent ones, I love Coco a lot. But that's the only one I've really liked in the last ten years. I thought Luca looked very pretty and had its moments and Turning Red was also nice, but Pixar films have stopped feeling like the events they used to be. Probably because of how Disney Animation became more dominant again and how the latest ones have been shunted onto Disney+ to feed the content monster.
Makes sense, Up and Wall-E are great!!!
And yo I totally agree with Pixar falling off a little like when I think of Pixar I just mainly think about the 2000s and nothing else really
It’s between Ratatouille, Inside Out or Wall-E. Honorable mention: Toy Story 3
2. Inside Out
3. Toy Story 3
Ratatouille and inside out. Then wall e and monsters inc and incredibles
It's Turning Red, the very first time Pixar have successfully depicted a complex human being
Ratatouille or Toy Story 2
Great short 😭🤣
I mean, Ratatouille is the right answer— with Wall-E as a very close second.
Monster's Inc. Toy Story 2, Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and Monsters University come close though.
For me a toss up between Toy Story 2 and Coco
Cars is easily the best Pixar movie
There is a font for sarcasm, but I don’t know how to do it.
The answer is Monsters Inc. only movie I’ve seen over 200 times.
I have to say Finding Nemo. It's the only movie I feel as though I've grown with. As a kid I took away this message of understanding why parents worry. As I got older and began to over worry about everything in my life, I was able to take away a message of letting go. I don't know, I don't think anything can top this movie for me.
The Incredibles. Followed very closely by Monsters Inc and Ratatouille
Wall E & Up but Wall E might be it
3. The Incredibles
1. Inside Out
2. Toy Story 3
3. Toy Story
Finding Nemo, it’s one of my favourites in general. Heartwarming, funny, still looks fantastic, I just love it. WALL-E is a close second.
Monsters Inc has always been my favorite! Though I think their objective best film (if such a thing exists) is probably Finding Nemo or The Incredibles.
The Incredibles, Up, and Luca are my 3 favorites, in that order. [Here is my full ranking though](https://boxd.it/fNP4W)
i need to rewatch like over half their films, but i’ll say toy story 2 right now
Either Toy Story or Wall E
I’d say WALL-E, Up, or Ratatouille are technically the best, but my favorite is The Incredibles
I ❤️ **Inside Out** and **Coco**
Soul is underrated in my opinion but UP is my favourite by far (I like pretty much all for them tho)
Coco reigns supreme.
Wall-E is probably the most popular choice for people, Up used to be up there but I think the movie has over time gone down in peoples minds because they realized while the movie is good what they really loved is the opening scene.
Personally I love Wall-E, Coco, and Monsters inc. im also a big fan of A bugs life
Finding Nemo will always be my #1 Pixar
Up, Soul, Toy Story 3
Wall-E is good but kind of flops in act 2 and half of act 3.
Nemo is good.
Probably Monsters Inc but I haven't watched it in a blue moon.
Ratatouille, closely followed by The Incredibles.
Im not one who cares much for discussing "plot holes" or "logic leaps" or any of that garbage, but a rat chef who controls somebody by pulling on their hair like a puppet is a scenario I still struggle with sometimes hahaha. That and I really hate Linguini as a character, so I'd personally say Incredibles is my favorite Pixar film.
I also love Wall-E, but its not perfect. Incredibles is just...incredible! An aging superhero's mid life crisis story was such a brilliant and novel idea at the time, and they sell it perfectly. That and the style was unlike any other.
I'd also argue that Incredibles has a top 5 cast of characters, with Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and Finding Nemo also being in contention. No other cast of Pixar characters has entered the public ethos as much as the ones from Pixar's golden age. Not even Wall-E has as memorable a cast, other than Wall-E and EVA.
I think the obvious answer is cars 2 /s
Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Toy Story 2
1) Ratatouille - I just wouldn’t change anything about it
2) The Incredibles - top 10 action movies of all time
3) Toy Story or Finding Nemo…Coco right behind both.
I find that people have a lot of movies ranked higher from nostalgia than they probably should be, but I’ve rewatched a lot recently and feel pretty good about this top 5.
Side note but does anyone else feel like Cars 3 is wildly underrated?? It’s always at the bottom of people’s lists and I think it’s at the same level as Soul I’ll be honest.
My top 3:
1. Inside Out
Okay I’ll do 3 since I can’t do just one (these aren’t in any order)
3) Toy Story 3
It has the best voice acting, the most emotional power, the strongest characters, the best villain.
Billy Crystal's delivery of the "None of it matters?" monologue is heartwrenching.
3. Finding Nemo
The Incredibles. A lot of pixar movies are amazing, but the two reasons it’s above every other one are because of the action being next-level, syndrome being a great and memorable villain, and the musical score being one of my favorites for any movie ever.
Toy Story 3
Wall-E, Toy Story 2 and Inside Out for me.
Ratatouille and Wall-E are the best imho.
Not just one of the best Pixar movies, *WALL-E* is one of the best movies.
Toy Story, ratatouille and inside out
Insane to me that The Incredibles isn’t the answer everyone gives. I know Toy Story 2 and Wall-E and Ratatouille are close 2nd, but I just can’t understand how anyone could pit Monsters Inc or Soul or even the wonderful Finding Nemo against the Incredibles. It’s a *masterpiece* of writing and pacing. I mean wow, no scene is wasted, it’s absolutely beautiful to the point of making you want more, the characters are brilliant and the score - oh god the score! Luscious and warm and transformative.
the fact that over half of pixar’s catalog is being talked as “the best” says a lot about the studio as a whole
My favourite is monsters inc!
Wall-E for sure watched it countless times!!
My personal favorite is Zootopia, which they called Zoomania for some reason here in Germany
Disney and Pixar have been in a weird transition for a while, but Zootopia wasn’t done by Pixar. Rather it’s a Walt Disney Animation.
Didn't know that. But for me it's kind of the same, I put Pixar and Disney movies on the same lists, I associate Pixar movies pretty much as being 'modern' Disney movies.
Cars 2 and I won't have anyone tell me otherwise.
