DVDCorner’s Ranking Of The Pixar Films

Brave - Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray Inside Out Blu-ray The Good Dinosaur

With “Finding Dory” inching towards release, it’s time for me to finally do a ranking of all 16 Pixar films. Believe it or not, ranking the top 8 was harder than it looked as I treasure all of those films dearly. Now, it’s possible I will change my mind down the line, but for now, this is my ranking. On with the list!

  1. Toy Story- At the end of the day, “Toy Story” still remains the best and most revolutionary Pixar film to date.
  2. Wall-E- An extraordinary risk taking sci-fi story with strong timely messages about the environment and humanity.
  3. Up- The opening 10 minutes alone ensures a top 3 placement for “Up.”
  4. The Incredibles- A fun-filled superhero family story courtesy of Brad Bird. Can’t wait for the sequel.
  5. Toy Story 2- When it comes to sequels, Toy Story 2 and 3 are among the finest. The second film has a slight edge over the third if for no other reason than the heartbreaking Jessie montage.
  6. Monsters, Inc.- It’s tough to beat the character dynamics between Mike, Sulley, and Boo.
  7. Toy Story 3- If you don’t get at least misty eyed during the third installment, you may not have a soul.
  8. Finding Nemo- A stand-out Pixar film with great characters and great heart.
  9. A Bug’s Life- Easily the most underrated Pixar movie. Yes, the plot mirrors “Seven Samurai,” but the characters are all incredibly memorable.
  10. Inside Out- The most mature and adult Pixar film to date.
  11. Brave- A charming animated feature with an inspiring lead character in Princess Merida.
  12. Cars- “Cars” takes a lot of heat, but the first film is more enjoyable than it has any right to be.
  13. Ratatouille- I know a lot of people have a fondness for this film, but I largely found it to be an overlong bore.
  14. The Good Dinosaur- Pixar + Dinosaurs seemed like a sure thing, but aside from a heartfelt ending, the story was simply too generic.
  15. Monsters University- An “Animal House” esque story was simply not the right direction to go in for this prequel.
  16. Cars 2- The only Pixar film I can honestly say I dislike. The spy plot sounds promising on paper, but it doesn’t work on screen at all. Hopefully the third film can redeem this franchise.
