I've seen Wall-E, Ratatouille, and the Incredibles.  I haven't seen any of the others yet.  It'll be hard to pick a favorite.  Other than being Pixar movies, those three are hard to compare.

I've seen all of the movies, and although I loved Wall-E, I'd honestly vote for either The Incredibles or Ratatouille because of all the movies on that list those are the two that I want to watch over and over and over again.  Also... Brad Bird.  love

Incredibles, Ratatouille and Wall-E were all amazing movies. Love all of Pixars stuff! Wall-E was absolutely amazing... being able to do that with robots is quite a feat.

Pixar has always been above the animated movies coming out of dream works and Disneys own studio...

I think all of their movies are very different, except for Toy Story and Toy Story 2, different characters, and stories can be similar. What I mean is I think all Pixar feature films are great.

I have reservations for Up. It doesn't exactly seem like a compelling film as is, but it especially doesn't seem so having to follow up WALL-E. That's like expecting Godfather Part III to be good.

So Up surprised me, the first part was pure genius. It was nowhere near WALL-E, but I don't expect any animated film to ever match it. My new rankings:

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

#1-3 are ranked clearly and where they should be, but #4-6 are pretty equal, as are #7-9. Cars, however, is definitely worst.

I agree regarding Cars. 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"...)

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...

It was the best film I saw i theaters this year, and I saw Slumdog this year. It's not exactly Best Picture worthy like WALL-E was (although I can't recall any good movies this year otherwise), but it'll definitely get Best Animated easily.

Does the viewing public REALLY have to go watch it? Isn't it safe to assume that anything Pixar makes is fantastic and then just match our public statements to that assumption? confused

For example: Up

Amazing.  Why aren't you watching i right now?  GO!

See? THAT WAS SO EASY. eek

[Quoted from the movie review thread]

   Up 3D

   First time I've seen a movie in the cinema for a good couple months, the 3d worked well which seems to mimick the eye squint 3d effect. Good movie, although it seems to fail as a kids movie.

   B+ due to the fact that it is supposed to be a kids movie but it doesn't fell like a kids movie.

[Emphasis mine.]

Is it supposed to be a movie for children? Has Pixar said that. Has Pixar ever said that about any of their movies?

Personally, I don't believe that animated movies are automatically kids movies (Was Wizards a 'kids' movie?), nor are movies with a G or PG rating. (What rating would Casablanca or Its a Wonderful Life get these days?)

Was Futurama supposed to be a kids show? It was a cartoon aired at 7:00pm after all.   wink

Or am I wrong?

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Haven't seen WALL E or Up yet.  I've seen the rest of Pixar's pics, and I like all of them.  They're obviously created by a studio full of obsessive animators; not just going through the motions like some studios.  My favorite (so far) is Ratatouille.

Exactly. I don't see Pixar's offerings as being aimed at primarily at children. They're just wonderful, well-made, superbly-told stories. I know I definitely got more of a kick out of the likes of Wall-E than a 7 year-old wold have.

It's the same with games, really. Ironically, the ones that get described as 'mature' are the ones that seem to only appeal to 15 year-old pubescent boys (or adults who haven't progressed beyond that mindset), where all you do is walk around shooting at things in dull, pseudo-realistic environments. I stopped playing those sorts of games years ago, because they're just boring to me. I still enjoy the likes of LittleBigPlanet and the Mario franchise, though. There's a sense of art and whimsicality to them that I enjoy, which strikes me as a hell of lot more 'mature' than gunning down Nazis ad infinitum.

The same goes for Pixar films. Just because a child can enjoy it, doesn't necessarily mean it's only for them.

Try Mini Ninjas then Ben, if a 26 year old like me can enjoy it, so can you... maybe.

I put The Incredibles as my favourite but I haven't seen Up yet, I just loved the James Bond stuff in Incredibles.

I still haven't seen Up. My date has had to cancel on me twice - the last time we ended up eating Thai on her couch and watching TV, so it wasn't all bad, but still. I need to see Up and I'm a weak woman who can't go to the movies by herself.

Other than that, it's got to be:

1. Wall-E
2. Toy Story 2
3. Monsters Inc
4. Toy Story
5. A Bug's Life / Finding Nemo
6. The Incredibles

Haven't seen Ratatouille or Cars, and I'm pretty sure I am the only person alive who didn't really care for The Incredibles.

And as for them being for children/ marketed at children? I guess it's just the language of film. You don't have to come out and say "this is for children", it's all learnt over time.
People (especially Westerners) see animation, easily digestible moralistic stories devoid of violence and sex, bright colours, talking animals/ inanimate objects and they think "children". Pixar are obviously rewriting it, but come on. Since Snow White, feature length animations have very much been the domain of kids.

We were all kids once so how can the movies not be for us still...

I didn't like The Incredibles that much when I saw it at the movies, considering the hype surrounding it I was disappointed, but watching it again when its on TV (like the other night) I don't mind it.

I'll go see Up with you, Rach. I don't mind seeing it a third time..
I chose Wall-E for this poll though, just because...I guess the whole film was great, whereas some of the others just had 'moments'.

Lies! The Incredibles is great! Not just for the Nietzschean subtext - the whole thing is quality.

Anyhow, trying to rank them ends up reflecting badly on the likes of Ratatouille and Toy Story 2, which I still really love. It's just that the others are slightly better, in my opinion. They're all quality films.

Well, except for Cars..

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

In the city the other day my friend pointed to a shirt with pictures of aliens on it and noted that the last one looked a lot like Mike Wazowski.
I think I might go get that on dvd. And Toy Story, I haven't seen that in so long.

I adore Toy Story 2 and am geniunely surprised it doesn't get a higher ranking from most of you. It's hilarious. I thought everyone agreed it was better than the original, but maybe I've just got my friends brainwashed.

In any case, this thread is slowly convincing me to give The Incredibles another chance. I have only seen it once.

Agreed. In fact, in my opinion, 2008 was a good year CG movie-wise with Horton Hears a Who!, Kung Fu Panda, WALL•E, and Bolt all being much better than I had hoped they might be. Up was just the icing on the cake, so to speak.

3. Up
4. Monsters, Inc.
5. Finding Nemo
6. Toy Story 2
7. Ratatouille
8. The Incredibles
9. A Bug's Life
10. Cars


Although I liked Cars the least, I have to say that I'm looking forward to Cars 2 and think it'll be far better than the first. And it pains me to put Toy Story 2, Ratatouille, and The Incredibles so low, but I loved the rest. Also, Up's a sure-fire lock for a Best Picture nomination, partially thanks to WALL•E's snub.

Cars was a fairly straight rip of Doc Hollywood, and very disappointing. I liked how it was executed, but the writing was way too generic.

My list looks like this, I guess:

Monsters, Inc.
Up
Toy Story
The Incredibles
Toy Story 2
Wall•E
Finding Nemo
Ratatouille
A Bug's Life
Cars

My attitude towards my own list reflects Ben's pretty much, including my opinion on Cars.

Mah list:

3. Finding Nemo
4. Toy Story
5. Monsters, Inc
6. The Incredibles
7. Ratatouille
8. Toy Story 2
9. Cars
10. A Bug's Life

Really, I don't understand the massive heaps of Toy Story 2 love amongst Pixar fans, I really didn't care too much for the sequel, although I'm very excited for Toy Story 3.

I'll tell ya though, we should have a whole different thread dedicated to the Pixar Silent Shorts that air before every movie. The short film "Presto" which was paired up with Wall-E, was pants pissing hilarious.

Speaking of shorts, I thought that that the ending to Partly Cloudy (the short which preceeds Up) was a bit weak and lacked a satisfying (visual) punch line.
