What's your favorite Pixar movie?


My son and I watched Pixar's The Incredibles yesterday. I haven't seen it for a few years. I'd almost forgotten what a fantastic movie it is.



Mind you, I've yet to see a Pixar movie I didn't enjoy. Even when the trailers didn't get me excited about watching the film (I'm looking at you, Cars, Wall-E, and Up), by the final credits all is forgiven.

If I had to pick a favorite, Toy Story 2 would come in a close second, but for me it has to be Up. I'm a cynical old soul, but the folks at Pixar know how to tug at your heartstrings. I defy anyone to watch the Love Story montage at the beginning of Up without reaching for a hanky.



How about you?

What's your favorite Pixar movie?

Is it just me, or...?

It says I'm not authorised...

Anyway, UP is my fave,
although if all three Toy Story movies were considered
as a single entry,
they'd be it...

Hi Stacy,

Sorry about that. I had a slight technical hitch with the html code. It should be okay now.

Admittedly I haven't seen all of those listed - in fact, I've only seen four of those listed! - but it's just a fact that Finding Nemo is the best film ever.

Finding Nemo is excellent. I loved Dori :)

I've forgotten which ones that I've actually seen except for the first Toy Story, which was cute.

They're all so good. It's really hard to choose a favorite :)

Up had me choking back the tears twice. It's not at all what I was expecting.

Yes, "Up" is the best for me, I think. Although most of them have been at least "great".

Yep, they're all good :)

My list (in order) of Pixar movies by movie quality is different from my list of my fave Pixar movies. My fave is Monsters Inc. Those are the folks that I feel "at home" with, the ones I find most lovable. Nonetheless, I don't think it's the BEST movie they've made.

I've seen Monsters Inc. too many times.

A tough call, but I'd say Toy Story 3, though I've yet to see UP. Least favourite is easily Wall-E, the only Pixar film I disliked.

I really expected to hate Wall-E when we took the children to see it, but I came out of the cinema converted.

Most were so good it's a tough call indeed. I think Up, Toy Story 1 & 3 and Monsters Inc were my favorites. A Bug's Life was probably my least favorite - maybe because i hate bugs so much!

I really liked A Bug's Life :P

Ooooh Noooo I have to pick just ONE?

You are Evil, sir. Evil.

The Incredibles is right up there along with Up. But it is very hard to say. We own most of them on DVD. As in haven't bought Up yet, simply have the DVR recording protected.

Pixar does good work. For me, WallE is the big winner, with UP as a close second. But Wall-E ranks as my second favorite movie of all time, while Up doesn't quite make the top ten.

Up. Mine is definitely Up. I bawl like a baby every time I see it.

I couldn't believe the impact Up had on me the first time I saw it. The trailer didn't work for me at all, so I really wasn't expecting to enjoy it/

I enjoyed "Incredibles" a lot, because of how well it played off the motifs, but it always had subtextual stuff that put me off, such as the villain being a nerd discarded by the jock hero, or how being special and being equal seemed incompatiable in the movie.

"Up" did the best job of any movie I've seen making a cranky old man a sympathetic character, even when he's being a jerk. The house as his emotional burdens is an amazing metaphor that would make any magical realist proud. And, of course, "SQUIRRELS!" as a masterpiece of building a joke.

They really are an amazing company. One wonders what miracle of capitalistic oversight (or over sight?) allowed them to come into existence.

Pixar is definitely the new Disney, as far as I'm concerned :)

I'm going to be the odd man out (especially since I live 5 minutes from Pixar) but the only pixar movie I liked was The Incredibles and even then I didn't LOVE it. I've not been a very big Pixar fan. I was terribly disappointed in Finding Nemo after all the hype so I have no real desire to see much of anything Pixar puts out. But then I'm also the weirdo that didn't like Toy Story. I've been meh about the Disney/Pixar merge, but then I grew up in the Disney Renaissance so I guess I just have different expectations of animated movies.

Fair enough :)
