I voted for Toy Story 2 because Wall-E doesn't need my help and TS2 needed to be bumped up to at least equal to TS3. What are you guys thinking?

Also the poll question quite weird. I just want to say "yes, they are".

Not dissing anyone's opinion, but I'm surprised by all the love for Wall-E.  It was a good movie and I enjoyed watching it.  Didn't feel super special to me, though.

I've come to the conclusion that Monsters, Inc. is the best Pixar film.

It's visually beautiful, and tells a story very well without a lot of dialogue. Those are my reasons.

The first half of Wall-E is exceptional.

The second half lets it down. I mean, the 2nd half is great, but it's a huge step down from the 1st half and it leaves the film feeling less structurally sound.

   It's just that so many sequels anymore don't live up to the first film, and it's a blatant cash grab (Ice Age 4, I'm looking at you).


Not to mention Happy Feet 2.
Well duh. The first film got a lot of attention, and was praised so naturally there's gotta be a sequel. I have Happy Feet on Blu-Ray because it was on sale and I dig music so naturally I can watch the film on occasion. I only like the second film's music (thank you YouTube). I haven't been bothered to see it since everyone hates it.

cyber_turnip has a point. It sorta goes downhill after the humans are introduced. I think partially because more talking is involved? I dunno.

I haven't seen Cars 2 or Brave, but I'll have a go at ranking the rest:

1 - Toy Story 3 - Exceptional from start to finish
2 - Toy Story 2 - A great sequel to a great film
3 - Toy Story - Is it a crime that I put it's 2 sequels above it? Still though, an excellent and iconic movie
4 - Ratatouille - Brilliant, unique, underrated, and touching
5 - Finding Nemo - A little overrated but I still love it
6 - The Incredibles - This pleasantly suprised me. Didn't think I'd like it - I was wrong
7 - Wall-E - A great story of the future
8 - A Bugs Life - Lots of great nostalgia with this one
9 - Up - I liked it, but didn't love it. Has a lot going for it, but that kid is annoying
10 - Cars - Not a favourite by many, and I agree, although I did somewhat enjoy it
11 - Monsters Inc - This was ok, but I was just not as keen on it. Not sure why

The way forward might be to mash up the titles of old Pixar movies and see what sounds like it'll work.

They could end up with something like "Monsters Up Nemo".

They need to do a PG-13 Sam & Max movie is what they need to do!

Speaking of, I had no idea until just recently that Steve Purcell was involved with Brave. If I had known that, I would have seen it on opening day. I still haven't seen it, and it's no longer in theaters where I live. Sigh...will have to wait for it to come out on video.

Well if you count Pixar doing visuals for John Carter as that adult film then... it means they can do good gritty visuals.

As I posted in the Upcoming Films thread:

In other news, Andrew Stanton has signed on to direct Finding Nemo 2. (Linky.) big grin

Bit late here, but Finding Nemo 2 is not an idea I relish. I thought the original was alright, but definately one of my least favourite Pixar movies. I don't really see why another story like this needs to be told or what it can achieve better than the first. The only obvious way it could improve is by being less annoying...

Maybe Monsters University will be an ok sequel, it's a little more promising at least...


Not dissing anyone's opinion, but I'm surprised by all the love for Wall-E.  It was a good movie and I enjoyed watching it.  Didn't feel super special to me, though.

I'm surprised too and I feel much the same way. It was different I suppose, and quite original, but I didn't enjoy it all that much so it doesn't rank highly with me...

Anyway, I say roll on The Good Dinosaur!...

Although it's hard for me to pick an absolute favourite in Pixar, I can safely say that Brave is at the bottom of the list for me. I was so disappointed! It didn't make me laugh once, felt sloppy and lazy in parts, was really boring and kept reminding me of two superior movies (Brother Bear and How To Train Your Dragon). It just wasn't Pixar at all, and although everyone hated Cars 2 but me, at least that one was funny in parts and had good action. I really struggled to finish Cars because it was so boring. Same with Ratatouille.

Cars 2 > Ratatouille > Brave > Cars

I don't know where I'd rank others. Probably either Toy Story 1 or 3 at top?

Must I keep saying I liked Cars 2 alright? You're not alone!!! I wouldn't put Cars 2 above Cars 1 or Ratatouille but I can't say I hated it. But I'm totally biased into liking the two films because I'm into cars. :P Cars was all about finding out who you are, Cars 2 was about spiez1!11 and aksuhnzz!1! and didn't really further develop the cast. They [the cast of characters] were pretty much where they were in the first film. Lightning still mildly stabs at Mater with his words (but what bestie doesn't give a little guff to their pals?), he's going out with Sally, etc. Though, with action, it keeps you entertained even if the plot isn't 100% so I can see how, if you're not into developmental, slower things, Cars 2 is more your thing.

Also, if Nemo gets a sequel, and they call it "Finding Nemo 2"... how the fuck is he going to get lost AGAIN? Will he be grown up and senile or somethin'? Does this mean he's still a kid and didn't learn his lesson the first time? Is he a teen and does he decide to storm off and brood or some shit, only to get captured by some exotic fish distributor on the black market? I'm sorry, but Incredibles needs a sequel more than Nemo does. Superhero movies are seldom a failure, unless you blow exorbitant amounts of money on CGI costumes and expect visuals alone to sell the film...


And speaking of Wall-E: I never really cared for it. It's nice, it's pretty original, and the animation is stellar. Shoot, I even have it on DVD. But the plot was somewhat slow and dull, and while the message is amazingly good for us to keep in mind, and Wall-E/EVE interaction is cutesy, something about the film just doesn't scream "Watch me a million times! I'm winsauce!"

I love Ratatouille, I think it's highly underrated. I can see how people would think it's boring though but I quite like it.

I didn't hate Cars 2 either but if I never saw it again I would be ok.

I've gone through the thread and I'm surprised no one has talked about Up at all. There's a rant I posted a few pages back and my thoughts have pretty much stayed the same. I knew going into it it would be kind of a silly movie, but I was expecting it to be more fantastical kind of like Wizard of Oz. Instead we have a very emotional opening that is rooted in realism that completely loses that natural emotion for a reality where there are dozens of talking dogs who can fly airplanes and a man who defies death that is on the search for the Roadrunner's gay cousin.

Oh, DO rant on, Spacedal. I think Up is the shittiest Pixar film to date. It wanted to be a real boy, but decided to take a trip on acid and got thrown into the corner cell for being naughty. I think I've said it here before but I'll say it again: the only reason I didn't get up and leave during the film is because I paid for 3D, and it was a brand new gimmick at the time. It's the only recently-made Pixar film I do not own in any format. I also don't own A Bug's Life, but it used to come on ABC all the time in the late 90s so I probably just got tired of it. I have all the rest on VHS/DVD/Blu-Ray. I cringed when, during a band trip, the bus voted to watch Up instead of finishing off a slightly better movie that I can't recall. It wasn't animated though, and it could've been Pink Panther... Oh well.

Back to Up: It would've worked perfectly fine without all the super-fantasy-color-kawaii-desu-whatever the heck you want to call it nonsense that it tacked on halfway through. Or it could've been wacky from the start, clearly in its own universe. I suppose I'm being a biased fart here, but I just didn't enjoy the talking dogs (even though, thankfully, technology allowed them to speak instead of making them magically anthropomorphic), the overly simplistic search for Kevin (which wasn't what the old man was searching for anyways, I mean, damn. He just wanted to visit that canyon/plateau...thing) and the absolutely annoying fact that despite Carl being old as dirt himself, the guy flying the blimp was alive and easily around the age of 120 if not older. Bullshit like that flies in the likes of ridiculous and outlandishly comedic pieces like Team Fortress 2 comics, and Futurama, but this isn't set in silly-comic-land, nor is it set in the year 3000. It was set in, I'd say, the mid-1900s to now-ish. Perhaps it would've worked had it been explained how he was still alive (if it wasn't. Honestly, I cannot recall if it ever was). But I digress, I suppose Up, like Spacedal said, should've been like Wizard of Oz, but ended up being half reality and half drug trip/ fantasy. I can see why it's how it is. It's huge symbolism for life and it being a journey in and of itself and yadda yadda, but it just didn't tickle my fancy. Color me jaded. Or some of the plot jaded. Whichever.

Friendship. Accepted. Beep boop.

Doug was sorta cute, I will admit, but like Spacedal said, he gets shadowed by all the other talking dogs, specifically this stupid chipmunk-ified one (that, and Doug is a normal overly characterized, which I can't say is overused, but it's not so new it was amazing). That little "joke" with the voice modultator being on the fritz was pretty pathetic. Also, if the "evil" dog was a butch as he claimed to be, he would've had no issues making the other dogs obey his every command.

Surprised at the Up hate. It is by far my favorite Pixar movie (although I have not seen Wall-E, Cars 2, or Brave), and one of my favorite movies ever. I liked how the goofy whimsical stuff was peppered with real/emotional moments. The humor worked, the characters were endearing, and for goodness sake it had Ed Asner.

I will admit that the old guy still being alive was a bit of a stretch...to say the least.

Still, I felt very lucky, watching it in the theater. This is the kind of classic movie that will live on forever...my kids will be showing it to their grandkids! It's that good.

Would I get attacked and murdered if I said that I don't particularly like Pixar that much? Not that I dislike them, I just don't really enjoy their movies all that much. However I did like Wall-E and Ratatouille somewhat. The others I find to be somewhere between boring and okay.

I've personally never liked Ghibli films, nor have I liked anime aside from the dubbed versions shown on TV every Saturday morning in the 90s/early 00s. So basically Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh and Digimon.

I also want to spread the Up love. It surprised me by how good it was. Emotional but fun, and beatifically animated much like all Pixar movies. Up was special though, it stayed in my memory and I love it when Pixar do original things and just go with it. It gave me feelings which stay with me...
