    I was reading Entertainment Weekly at the gym and saw that when reviewing Toy Story 3, the EW movie critics listed in order their favourite PIXAR films. So I thought we should do our own ranking!

    Will Buzz and Woody take the crown??? Will Cars or Ratatouille make the podium, even though I could barely make my way through either of them? Vote peoples, vote! (It's a multiple choice poll, so you can vote for one or all.) :)

    I think Toy Story 3, Up & Finding Nemo are my top 3 - not sure in which order, though!

    Nemo hands down

    :lol: - it has to be heard for the whole effect..

    Dory: [about the humpback whale] Maybe he only speaks whale.
    [slowly and deeply, imitating the whale]
    Dory: Mooo... Weeee neeeed...
    Marlin: Dory?
    Dory: ...tooo fiiind hiiis sooon.
    Marlin: What are you doing? Are you sure you speak whale?
    Dory: Caaaan yoooou giive uuuus direeeeectioooons?
    Marlin: Dory! Heaven knows what you're saying! See, he's swimming away.
    Dory: Cooome baaaaack.
    Marlin: He's not coming back. You offended him.
    Dory: Maybe a different dialect. Mmmmoooooowaaaaah...
    Marlin: Dory! This is not whale. You're speaking like, upset stomach.
    Dory: Maybe I should try humpback.
    Marlin: No, don't try humpback.
    Dory: Woooooo! Woooooo!
    Marlin: Okay, now you really do sound sick.
    Dory: Maybe louder. Rah! Rah!
    Marlin: Don't do that!
    Dory: Too much orca. Did it sound a little orca-ish to you?
    Marlin: It doesn't sound orca. It sounds like nothing I've ever heard!

    I've only seen Nemo, Cars, Toy story 1 &2 and Wall-E.


    They were all delightful though.

    I like the ones I've seen (all but Cars, Bug's Life, and the last two Toy Story movies) but I hate how so many of them make me cry. I'm such an awful wuss. :wuzrobbed

    Wall-E.

    But Monsters, Inc. also makes me cry every time.

    Up was wonderful but the first 10 minutes were so epically amazingly the best thing ever that the rest of the film felt like a let down.

    Nemo and Toy Story are my favorites. The only one I've really disliked was The Incredibles.

    Cars (but given I'm typing this as I watch Top Gear I may be more in the target audience than most people around here--the Michael Schumacher Ferrari, tee-hee), The Incredibles (superhero in-jokes! "WOMAN! WHERE DID YOU PUT MY SUPERHERO SUIT?!?") And "Up" really deserved Best Picture, not just Best Animated. They're my favorites, though really the only one I didn't especially enjoy was Ratatouille. And even then the short film on the history of rats was amusing.

    I've only seen Wall-E, all the Toy Stories, and Up, but of those, I liked Up the best. Actually paid twice to see it! The second time with a friend who had never been to a movie theatre before in her life. So I figured Up was a good initiation, moreso than the shoot-em up other movies playing at the time.

    The Incredibles is my favorite, although Finding Nemo is a close second. I loved the first half of Wall-E but the third act feels completely different tonally.

    The best scene ever:

    "You tell me where my suit is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!"
    "Greater good? I am your WIFE! I am the greatest good you're ever gonna get!"

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Up was my pick but I also loved Finding Nemo. That was a really tough pick. I would probably say they are tied.

    Because of little skateycat, I have seen Cars eleventy billion nine hundred squillion times, and I still love it and I still cry at the end. That kind of enduring likeability makes it my favorite, but there's not a bad one in the bunch yet, so I voted Cars and I liked them all.

    Wall-e and Toy Story 3. I have never cried so much during a movie as I did with Wall-E, just those droopy eyes of his...I think I have some weird empathy with robots. :p I've become such a sucker for wistful, nostalgic animated films that don't even seem to be meant for little kids in the first place. ;)

    I'm finding that I enjoy Pixar's latest films more than what Disney is putting out these days. Has Disney had any bonafide classics in the last few years? I was a little disappointed with Princess and the Frog (and I'd really been looking forward to it), and the upcoming Tangled has Mandy Moore doing the voice of Rapunzel, so I have a hard time envisioning this as a Disney classic. :yawn:

    I think I have to say Toy Story (I consider the three movies as three parts of one big movie) just because it resonated so much with me when I saw it.

    I think I may have to do a toss-up between Wall-E and Finding Nemo for the second spot with The Incredibles following up. I loved the more mature storyline of The Incredibles and its social commentary AND Sarah Vowell as Violet totally makes the movie.

    Another vote for Toy Story 1-3. Every movie stands up on its own - I also love The Incredibles!

    Wall-E has one of the best openings I've seen in years. I'm a Michael Crawford fangirl, so hearing him sing that Hello Dolly song had me totally blissed out. :D

    Finding Nemo and the Toy Stories, but I had to vote for the last one also because being a soulless vampire appeals to me.

    I loved The Incredibles, and I've watched Wall*E three times, but I've never been able to make it through Finding Nemo. I've never seen Up, and the rest of them were ok, but not movies I'd put on my favourites list.

    My favourite animated movie is The Iron Giant, but neither of my younger kids liked it at all.

    Just couldn't choose between Up and Finding Nemo, so I picked both. The Incredibles is right behind them.

    I find that Ellen is as annoying as an animated character as she is on her live show, LOL. I would probably enjoy Nemo more without the Dora character.

    I think The Incredibles is an ok/good movie. A little bit overrated though.

    I think my problem with Finding Nemo is...well, actually, yeah, a fish like that IS better off in a well-maintained saltwater tank than in the wild. A bad fin? He's snack food in the wild. (Of course, real fish don't talk or give a huge crap about their offspring after a while anyway, so...Disney movie.)

    I guess the question is whether it's better to live independently with all the risks and dangers involved or would you prefer to be sheltered and safe but with virtually no freedom, essentially unable to experience anything other than the crazy joy you feel when the toy treasure chest opens to blow bubbles.

    I pretty much love all of Pixar's feature length movies. "Finding Nemo" is my favorite, but the whole "Toy Story" trilogy is pretty amazing as well.

    "Cars" is probably my least favorite of their films.

    It's sad that Pixar can produce an amazing movie about every 18 months while the rest of Hollywood churns out so much crap.

    I fell in love with the Toy Story movies, and they owned my heart until Ratatouille was released. Hands-down, my favorite Pixar movie ever.

    Any flick that combines cuisine, rodents (seeing as how I adore mice and hamsters), amazing computer animation, and one amazing soundtrack wins the prize in my book. I can almost ignore that pinhead, Jeanine Garafaolo's, political ridiculouslness when I watch it.
