Hey everyone! Since there are just 7 Disney/Pixar films (thus far) I though it would be cool for everyone to rank them in order of their favorites (and include a brief explaination if you so choose). By the way, I searched for a topic like this and didn't find one, so my apologies if there IS one already. My order is as follows:

1. Toy Story
2. Finding Nemo
3. The Incredibles
4. A Bugs Life
5. Monsters, Inc
6. Toy Story 2
7. Cars


Toy Story was the original and first 3D animated movie, so it is definately my favorite. Finding Nemo is a close second, I saw this movie in the theater and thought it was amazing. The Incredibles is third, strangely enough I didn't think I was going to like this movie, and just saw it for the first time a couple months ago and was VERY pleasantly surprised. A Bugs Life comes in at number 4, I think this movie is really cute, and I feel it is often overlooked when Disney/Pixar films are discussed. Next comes Monsters, Inc which I think was clever and quite cute. Toy Story 2 comes next, this film was a pretty good sequel (looking forward to Toy Story 3 if it ever sees the light of day). And finally Cars comes in at number 7. The movie was decent, but not one of the best (in my opinion--obviously)

Hmmm. We must have done this before. The thing that blows me away is trying to pick which one for last. It is very difficult. None of them are bad or even below average.

1. Monsters Inc.
2. Toy Story
3. Finding Nemo
4. Incredibles
5. Cars
6. Bugs Life
7. Toy Story 2(I guess just because it is a sequel)

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

I like them all but I like Cars the best as I first saw it in a theatre and I really like Lightning McQueen and Sally, my two favourite characters from the movie.

A couple old ones, from 2003 and 2005:

Rank & Rate the Pixar Films (2003)

Your Favourite Pixar/Disney Movie (2005)

Anyways, I haven't had a chance to check if I replied in either of those old threads, but tastes change over time, so here's my current listing:

1. Toy Story and Toy Story 2 - you can't go wrong with either one, both are Pixar at their best and the first has all the components of a truly great film: compelling story, memorable characters, and beautiful imagery. The sequel takes it all and repeats it in an inventive way while also pushing the story and the characters' lives forward. I was hoping, though, that Toy Story 2 would have the return of Buzz as the darjeeling-sipping Mrs. Nesbit, but the new Buzz with utility belt was a hoot and pretty good substitute.

2. Finding Nemo - my favorite of the seven, and while I do admit there are some story problems and character nuances that I don't quite enjoy, my love for the attitude of the film far outshines those little problems. And of course, if not for this film, I would not have my namesake.

3. The Incredibles - At last, Pixar branches out from the buddy-buddy format and delivers an entertaining action and family film. Sure, it's a thinly-veiled homage to Fantastic Four, but at the same time, presents itself as an engaging story that leaves you begging for a sequel featuring them battling the Underminer.

4. A Bug's Life - As the second Pixar film, it's more epic in scope than Toy Story with very interesting visual sequences and a crazy cast of characters. Plus, the trailer is kickass because it uses "Baba O'Riley" from The Who.

5. Monsters Inc. - I hate putting this one so low, but it's a short list. It's a unique story (the secret life of monsters) and I loved Mike Wazowski. I really can't find much to say about this film, mainly because I haven't watched it as much as I have the others.

6. Cars - I was truly disappointed with this one. Then again, I saw the film once in theatres, with an annoying ex-friend who talked incessently, but even after I rewatched it on DVD, I just can't say that I love this film the way I loved others. It's got interesting sequences, but being as I never was a big fan of Owen Wilson, racecars, or road-trip-gone-bad movies (except for National Lampoon's Vacation), I couldn't really get into this film the way others have.

1. Toy Story
2. The Incredibles
3. Monsters Inc
4. Toy Story 2
5. Finding Nemo
6. Cars
7. A Bug's Life


Toy Story blew me away at the age of 11, and remains my favourite to this day. No need to list its many qualities when Escapay has done a fine enough job already. Toy Story 2 does come very close to matching its brilliance, but I feel the need to place the Incredibles and Monsters Inc above it all the same. Both great films with wonderful characters and storylines, and lots of rich, subtle humour. I know that lots of people love Finding Nemo, and I do too, but there did seem to be something lacking, which kept it from being quite as satisfying as the four films above. I enjoyed Cars, but I definitly think it will go down as one of Pixar's lesser efforts. And, as much as I love Kevin Spacey (Hopper!!! Noooooo!!!), I still find myself having to rate A Bug's Life as the weakest. When it first came out, I was pretty underwhelmed, thinking it a disappointing follow-up to Toy Story, and if anything time has set it back even further, by providing even more great films to overshadow it (including its eventual companion piece, Geri's Game).

1. A Bug's Life (shame on whoever put it last)
2. Monsters, INC.
3. Toy Story
4. Toy Story 2
5. Finding Nemo
6. The Incredibles
7. Cars (this is only because I have seen the movie one time)

This was a very hard list to make. I found myself struggling between TS2, FN, and TI. But I think this is the order in which I like them. Of course, I would be no where with out A Bug's Life. It is the BEST PIXAR film, and I can watch it whenever I want, and I don't get bored, like I can with TS (I know, bad llama), FN, and Cars. Anyway, that'll be my list.

The others I really cannot rank in any sort of order, to be honest. Seriously, they're all so cool, I can't vote for the worst of the lot. :p

1. Cars - This may not be the best but I have watched it more than the others, and I always reach for it when I want to put a smile on my face.

2. Toy Story and Toy Story 2 - How can you watch one without the other. This is storytelling in its top form.

3. A Bug's Life - Never fails to make me laugh.

4. The Incredibles - Just plain comic book fun without the comic book. The grandkids would rate this one right up there with "Cars".

5. Monster's Inc. - This is another one of those films that you hate rating like this, but it has to go somewhere because we watch the others more.

6. Finding Nemo - This one is full of color, full of laughs, and sometimes just full of itself. Just remember 'Fish are friends, not food!"

1. Finding Nemo - still love to watch it and Dory still makes me laugh

2. Cars - I never understood the criticism of this movie! I laughed and cried and couldn't believe that cars could be such great characters.

3. Toy Story - classic

4. Toy Story 2 - almost almost almost better than the first

5. Monster's Inc - I hate putting this down so low coz I love it

6. A Bug's Life - same with this one, if I'd seen it recently it might've moved up a bit...maybe I'll watch it tonight

7. The Incredibles - never really liked it that much and never understood the appeal really, but I'd still rank it higher than a lot of the other studios crappy CG animated releases eg. Open Season

3. Monsters, Inc.
4. Toy Story 2
5. Cars
6. Finding Nemo
7. A Bugs Life

Now I haven't seen A Bugs Life yet, so it's not really fair to include it on the poll. So once I see it my order may change. However, they are all very good movies, so just because one is near the bottom doesn't mean I'm not a fan.

1. The Incredibles
2. A Bug's Life
3. Toy Story

As Wonderlicious previously stated, I cannot try rate them from best to worst if I tried. There is no worst. These are my top 3, and I can overlook their flaws. The rest are all equally flawed, but at the same time also equally brilliant.

3. WALL-E
4. Toy Story 2
5. Toy Story
6. Ratatouille
7. The Incredibles
8. Cars
9. A Bug's Life

In terms of grouping, numbers 1 and 2 are significantly ahead. I could watch those countless times and never grow tired of them. 3, 4, and 5 are excellent, as well, but don't quite reach the same replay value. 6, 7, 8, and 9 are also wonderful, but they're films that I'd rather watch once in a blue moon and are more entertaining to me when I haven't seen them in a while. Like everyone else in this thread, even the films towards the bottom of the list are films I love, so don't take my ranking too harshly.

Nice list Escapay, its the same as mine only I separeted the two Toy Story films and put number 2 a littler further down.

I think it is really hard to argue with any of these movies in last place because there is not one that is really weak. So it just comes down to personal preference. They are all good but still something has to be last.

So hard to do!!! Honestly, I love them all. My rank of these would change from year to year, by the way.

1-2. Toy Story + Toy Story 2 - What more can I say about these? They are classics forever. The music, the story, everything.

3. Cars - I fell in love with it immediately.

4. The Incredibles - A family action/adventure movie that met and exceeded all expectations.

5. Monsters Inc. - LOVE the whole plot. Please don't ruin it with a bad sequel!

6. Finding Nemo - Dory makes the movie.

7. A Bug's Life - I don't mean to put it last. I love the movie, honestly.

I am on pins and needles as to where I will put Ratatouille in this mix.

I love all these flicks, but it will be easiest for me to pick the LAST one. The others are almost all tied, but I guess I'm putting them in order by rewatchability (though they all have high rewatchability, though I'm not sure about Cars because I've only seen it once so far, waiting for a 2-disc release).


1. The Incredibles
2. Toy Story 2
3. Monsters Inc
4. Toy Story
5. A Bug's Life
6. Finding Nemo
7. Cars
