Up was awesome, WTF homerjay.  

It's was like one of those movies where the time line was kinda out of wack. I think the Charles Muntz they see on the island should have been really been his son because the guy was so old. Just tweaked the story a little. That bugged me.

I'm a race fan so I loved Cars. I can't even imagine what the second one will be like without Paul Newman.

I can't wait for Toy Story 3 at the moment, and being surround by promo material for it at work doesn't help.

I liked Cars, probably because I'm into towns and maps and crud, but I probably won't like the sequel, as three voice actors have died and there's a 'spy' storyline. Pfft.

9001. Cars
Is that a subtle joke, weiner? Because if it was supposed to be, you sucked at making it subtle.

In terms of Pixar films I've completely enjoyed I've liked pretty much all of them to some degree. There's only been one I absolutely have not liked and that was Up. I thought it was boring as hell. It didn't really stir anything inside me except when Carl lost his wife. I watched it twice and both times I wasn't really invested in it. It seemed like it was missing a key element somewhere along the way that Pixar normally places in its films. Now throw me a Toy Story flick and you've hooked me completely. Those films were part of my growing up and so I grew attached to the characters and their lives. I almost cried twice during TS3. That's an accomplishment in and of itself since most films don't make me give a damn about the characters enough to bawl when they die or whatever the hell happens to them. Originally I thought Cars was going to be the dumbest, full-of-shit movie Pixar had come up with but I had a change of heart after seeing it in theaters. I must've been confused when I first saw the trailers for it.

I'll shut up and get my list going.

1.Toy Story
2.Toy Story 2
3.Toy Story 3 (hmm, I see a trend)
4.Finding Nemo
5. Monsters Inc.
6. The Incredibles (damn I'm realizing how tough it is to make this list)
7. Cars
8.Ratatouille
9. Wall-E
10. A Bug's Life
11. Up (because I thought it sucked)

I didn't like A Bug's Life that much.
I loved:
The Toy Stories (still waiting to see 3)
Finding Nemo (especially because of the colours)
Wall-E
Up
The Incredibles

I want to see Cars and not interested in seeing Ratatouille.

I'm also so happy to hear that Pixar are making a Monster's Inc sequeal! Yay!

Ratatouille, WALL-E, and the Toy Story movies are my all time favorite Pixar films. Up was good, but I thought it was a tad overrated, in my opinion.
I didn't like Bugs Life and I don't think I've ever seen Cars.

Just something about Ratatouille, I think it kind of slipped under the Pixar radar... =L

The whole Cars 2 plot looks a bit iffy too...

1. Cars- Looking at everyone else's lists, wow! What is so bad about this movie?
2. Wall-E
3. Toy Story 3- Ok I think they're all on the same level of greatness but this is the most recent one I've seen.
4. Ratatouile- Underrated.
5. Toy Story
6. Toy Story 2
7. Finding Nemo
8. Monster's Inc
9. Up- I didn't think it sucked, but it really lost me with all the randomness that happened. One talking dog is fine but 50 is overkill. It was just like some freaking mad lib inspired plot.
10. The Incredibles- I think this is more because I saw this with someone I didn't like but I still don't like this movie that much.
11. A Bug's Life

I'm also iffy about Cars 2, especially because of how much I love the original (and I'm apparently the only one).

EDIT: Come to think of it I really wouldn't watch 7-11 at all given the chance, not that any of them are down right awful I just feel like I saw them enough that I don't have any desire to watch them again, maybe Finding Nemo.

And, while watching Up, you'll think, "Wow, I want to tie balloons to my house and float it away!" Up is by far the most realistic movie Pixar's done story-wise, although WALL-E is definitely the most realistic animation-wise. Cars, however, bears neither of those features. Sure, Up doesn't have any massively fantastical elements like the company's previous outings, but at least those fantastical elements were rooted in some realism. Cars is a pure alternate reality with no logic to its existence. However, on a redeeming note, it did have George Carlin...

I'm sorry what? WHAT? No I know what you're referring to and I agree in it's depiction between Carl and Ellie, but you cannot convince me for a second that anything else in this movie is 'realistic'. You have an old explorer who by present day should honestly not be alive who has created a collar that makes dogs talk. And like I said had it been one ok sure, but he manufactured dozens of these collars that not only made the dogs talk but made them capable of flying planes and being chefs. Then you have that freaking bird Kevin, -she got on my nerves, there I said it, to hell with Kevin-. And I'm sorry this little boy Russell is flying with Carl for who knows how long? Weeks? Months maybe? And there's no search party, shit I know his dad is a neglectful man but what the hell about his mom? And then there's the balloons. Scientifically there aren't enough to lift the house, but I mean really? Carl had money surely he could have gotten on a flight to South America. I know this movie is really insightful to those who have childlike minds and imaginations. This movie to me is like a very vivid child's imagination. But it ain't realistic in the least bit.

End Rant.

The rest of the Pixar films were all ingrained into reality, usually with one small difference, such as toys actually being alive; monsters living in another world (reality, universe, perhaps just a faraway planet, whatever have you); rats, fish, or insects being able exhibit humanlike behaviour or being able to communicate with humans; a theoretical far future; and of course, the classic parallel seventies with superheros. Cars, however, had no basis in any sort of realistic elements. The entire film, in fact, passed with the presence of no more biological organisms than a few representative cacti. I can accept for the sake of Toy Story that toys are sentient... But at least they exist for a purpose, for children to play with and enjoy. Why do the automobiles of Cars exist?

(Perhaps the film portrays the society that managed to evolve on Earth following Stephen King's short story "Trucks"...)

I did read your post Xanfor though weiner's got more of a reaction out of me. I understand where you're coming from but I don't know I didn't let the absurdity of a car-based world upset me. But that's where our perceptions change, you see it as a fault, I find it funny. All the questions that people ask about Cars: Where are the humans? Why a world of cars? What's on the inside of them? Are there any car-animals...etc? I find these really amusing. But see I also can ignore that because I really love this story, of course it's been done before but I really like the characters, the simplicity, and the wholesomeness behind the movie. I don't know I appreciate the sentimentalism in finding that place where you belong and the people (or in this case the cars) around you effect you profoundly. Pixar movies are all about the characters and their motivations and passion for something, Cars is no exception. And that confuses me as to why so many people don't like it. Unlike Up which has so many random happenings popping up that I honestly had no idea what was going to happen (but not in a fun way, in an annoying 'get to the point' way), Cars has that simplicity. Maybe it's just me but I like this story, I think the characters and unique universe are what make it good. And it doesn't need much explanation, it's just a matter of accepting the movie for what it is.

With Cars it's not that it was terrible, no Pixar movie is terrible, but all of the others are so much better to me. I don't like the concept of Cars that much, I couldn’t shake that Thomas the Tank Engine feeling when I was watched them talk and interact with each other. The story didn't have the much impact on me either, so the prospect of a second one as opposed to a second Incredibles is somewhat disappointing...

What I don't understand is the general dislike for A Bug's Life. I always loved that movie, seeing everything from a bug’s level. The story was good, and the detail and animation fantastic. I felt part of their world. I enjoyed the variety of characters; I don't see why it's so underrated...

I'm going to wuss out with my obligatory list...

 1st equal: A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, 
            The Incredibles, Cars, Wall-E, Up, & Toy Story 3
 9th: Toy Story 2
10th: Toy Story
11th: Ratatouille

<The usual disclaimer>
Its not that the last three aren't good, its just that (for whatever reason) they don't appeal to me quite as much as the others.

I don't see it as a fault, but simply as a distraction that makes it rate ever so slightly lower than the rest of what Pixar has created.

I guess I never really questioned Cars too much because while it isn't my favorite, it sits above Up on my list and if cars get to the point where they have artificial intelligence, who's to say they won't take over the word and kill all humans? AI self-driving cars are robots too in a roundabout way I suppose and robots are supposed to overthrow us one day. Hey, it's more in the realm of possibility than Up is.

I thought about it, I did it once, but it seems a shame to waste all the votes so far. If someone likes Cars 2 the most and wants me to reset it so they can vote for that movie then say here and I will, otherwise I'll leave it...
