  • Well most of the films in Pixar’s canon are pretty disposable. Entertaining, but disposable. The three top tier films of theirs worth mentioning are “Finding Nemo”, which was an exhaustively exhilarating experience, “WALL-E”, which is the closest Pixar has come to subtlety and art, and “Ratatouille”, which had some wonderful characters and a wonderful central arc. And for that matter, “Ratatouille” is amongst the only Pixar films that don’t blow their story into an action spectacle.

  • Unlike most people I haven’t been a fan of Pixar in the last five years. I thought Ratatouille, Up, and Toy Story 3 were all overrated. My favorite is the original Toy Story. It had the best dialouge and the main charcters are much more interesting than other Pixar characters.

  • Hands down favorite Pixar film has to be The Incredibles. An awesome movie, an awesome take on the superhero genre, just an awesome experience through and through. Did I mention it was awesome? I don’t think I’m clear enough. It’s AWESOME.

    Ratatouille I liked a lot as well, so that would be a #2 for me, while Toy Story comes in at #3. Up and Wall-E did nothing for me. Am I jaded? Maybe a little bit. Dead inside? You could argue that. Bottom line, though, they just held little interest to me.

    Green Lantern was an extremely mediocre film. While I am excited for a sequel due to Sinestro and the after-credits scene. The movie as a whole was dull, lifeless and a waste of money. Netflix it if you want to see it.

    Wall-E or Up. I just thought they were phenomenal as movies, not just heartwarming experiences.
