Best Pixar Movie Ever

You demanded it, we delivered it! Time for Pixar to throw down against itself to see which of it's movies deserves a coveted spot on your movie shelf. Get ready for some John Ratzenberger action!

Watch Video

Yeah, I can understand why picking the best Pixar movie would be pretty damn difficult, as they're the by far best at what they do.

I'd have to go with Wall-E though. Toy Story series is an extremely close second.

Good episode... but the only thing I could think throughout the entire runtime was "Man, they have Toki Tori t-shirts!"

Anyway, best Pixar movie... kind of a tie between Monsters Inc., and Wall-E. That is all.

You left out Bugs Life and Monster's Inc, both of which are really good movies. I'm waiting so hard for Monster's University.

I was afraid that this was going to be a 30 minute video at about the 3 minute mark and unfortunately it wasn't

The best Pixar movie is there on the shelve right next to WALL-E; The freaking Incredibles.

It's Pixar's best. Great animated movie, great action movie, and great superhero movie.

Wall-E vs Toy Story? Are you kidding me. I haven't even watched the debate yet but felt the need to rage in the comments after seeing that title screen. The Incredibles wins this debate, hands down. Second place to Up, but it's not even close.

It's easier to pick least favorite: Cars 2
Chris should have come back from the first technical difficulties with a black eye or something :P

A quick trip to Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Pixar_awards_and_nominations_(feature_films) ) reveals that every Pixar movie is the best Pixar movie. I'm just surprised neither of you jumped on Monsters, Inc., A Bugs Life or Ratatouille.

You should probably go watch the episode before commenting, it may surprise you ;D

Anyway, there is no way I could pick a favourite Pixar movie, I love all of them (haven't seen Brave or Cars 2 yet so they don't count)

Matching Toki Tori shirts. I approve.

Anyway, my vote is a tie between Monsters Inc. and The Incredibles.

UP. Up is not only Pixar's best, it's probably my favorite movie ever. And there are two scenes that sell it for me.

The opening montage scene. You know why it's awesome and fantastic and heartbreaking, so I'm not gong to spend time on it.

The other is at the campfire, when Russell tells Carl about his family. Specifically, these lines:

"Well, I called [my dad], but Phyllis told me I bug him too much."
"Phyllis? You call your own mother by her first name?"
"Phyllis isn't my mom."
"...oh."
"But...he promised to come to my Explorer ceremony to pin on my Assisting the Elderly badge. So...he can show me about tents then, right?"

There's just so much said in those words, and the facial expressions on both their faces, that is brilliant. And that is why Pixar gets my vote.

Well this episode was super hilarious and I believe I have the clear best answer:

How To Train Your Dragon.

What's that? It's not a Pixar movie? SHUT UP IT HAS TOOTHLESS IT WINS PERIOD.

(I dunno, I actually haven't seen most of Pixars movies. But Up has talking dogs, so I'll go with Up)

I can't decide wich one is the best Pixar movie... I love every single one of them... I'd go with Toy Story, just because it was the first Pixar movie ever made and it was made in an era when everybody else were making "traditional" animation (IE: mid 90's), it was revolutionary, it was amazing and even if the technology of the movie isn't as sparkly as it was back then, the story itself is still freaking awesome!.

And that's not counting the sequels, wich are simply amazing by their own right.

Haha, oh man will you look foolish to just about everyone, including yourself if/when you actually watch the thing.

This video makes me realize how many times I have cried for movie robots, and it is way more than twice.

Also Ratatouille is the correct answer. It has a rat that can cook, you arguement is invalid.

So, there's Toy story 1-3, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., Cars 1-2, The Incredibles, Wall-E, Ratatouille, Up and now Brave. I simple cannot fault any of them, except perhaps Cars, because I just never felt anything watching that one. I mean, it's funny, but it didn't inspire me all that much. Even Brave, for all its kind of choppy pacing, felt more interesting than Cars. I have not watched Cars 2. I didn't even like the trailer. It was the one Pixar movie that seemed to be all about the cash and not about the inspiration. For the rest, I simple cannot find my favorite one, though Monsters Inc, Ratatouille and Up are all strong contenders.

I absolutely adore each and every one of those movies.

And Ratattouille.

And Monsters Inc.

They're all good BUT some are argueably better than others.
Mind you... I hated BOTH cars movies and bugs life.

Personally I think the Incredibles is the best of them all; hands down.

Gotta say, this is probably the funniest episode I've seen so far.

Also: The captcha I had to type to post was "end of the world." Apparently a hysterical No Right Answer is the end of the world. Pixar movies... good note to end on.

Toy Story hand down.

How about you guys do a Best Bond ever or a Best Bond movie ever.

my favourite pixar movies are the incredibles and up, though i like ratatouille a lot as well

I love the NRAs like this. They's hilarious to watch and matched my thoughts perfectly.
"The Incredibles! Debate that...Oh, thank you guys."

There's so many good ones, but TS3 and the Incredibles were my favorites. I've never jumped from so many emotional extremes in a movie as I did for TS3.

I would have to say Up is my favorite. I saw it accidentally over a holiday when my niece was watching it in the same room as we were playing cards. It was surprisingly awesome.

Although, I am also partial to Cars. I haven't seen it, but my friend has a theory that Cars is the sequel to Maximum Overdrive (zombie apocalypse, but replace the undead with cars). That explains why the cars exist in the same physical world, but there are no humans around.

For me, it would have to be Up, but I haven't seen a Pixar movie I haven't enjoyed on some level... Though keep in mind I never saw Cars 2.

On an unrelated note, where do I get one of those shirts?

Ok YES, every one of Pixar's movies are outstanding (CARS and CARS 2 notwithstanding, lets not get into it) and YES, you guys entertained me with your fair-weather choosing of a new movie to debate and counter with. But if we really think about it, shouldn't this have been WALL-E vs UP?

I think thats a debate where everybody wins.

and Dan, the visual effects of FINDING NEMO may be impressive but what makes Pixar stand above the rest is their great storytelling used in tandem with computer animation visuals.

The top 3 are easy, as are the bottom 2. It's a bit murkier in the middle, but here's my ranking:

1. The Incredibles
2. Up
3. Wall-E
4. Monsters, Inc.
5. Toy Story
6. Toy Story 3
7. Finding Nemo
8. Brave
9. Ratatouille
10. Toy Story 2
11. A Bug's Life
12. Cars

Didn't See Cars 2.

It should of been The Incredibles vs Up in my mind. Because I still can't decide...

It might not be the best Pixar movie for everyone but for me Wall-E was the best.
The reason being that I am a Pakistani and several of my relatives live in the US or Europe. A lot of people in my country see the several problems in Pakistan and whenever they find the funds and opportunity they move away and a lot of them don't do anything for their country.
To me moving from the Earth to the Axiom and never looking back was like these people moving from Pakistan to the West and never looking back. So these lines really got to me:

Captain: Out there is our home. *HOME*, Auto. And it's in trouble. I can't just sit here and-and-do nothing.
[moves back toward Auto]
Captain: That's all I've ever done! That's all anyone on this blasted ship has ever done. Nothing!

Any immigrants who live in rich countries and are successful there should look at this movie and resolve to do something for their people and improve the condition of their homeland.

The answer is Ratatouille.

And the reason for the answer is UNIVERSAL APPEAL. There is no demographic doesn't find the movie compelling. And there are multiple levels of positive message that work for everyone.

Incredibles and Wall-E and Toy Stories are all great movies. And I would argue the airport chase in TS2 was the best action sequence of any movie ever made. But they aren't movies that you can sit down to with little kids, teenagers, young adults, middle aged people, and old people. They are focused toward young males and while that isn't a bad thing it does prevent them from reaching the pinnacle of craftsmanship that Ratatouille does.

With Ratatouille you can sit 4 generations down to watch together and everyone will enjoy it and "get" it.

The worst pixar movies is much easier. Cars2, Cars, Brave. And Brave makes me sad because it had a lot of potential that wasn't fulfilled.

Is there an Escapist Tekkit server? Call me when there is, I'll join in a heartbeat.

But it really depends on the demographic. Every Pixar movie has a clear message, but not everyone will enjoy every message. For example: The Incredibles' message is about family. The 30 year old bachelor probably won't like it as much at the family of 5. Cars was basically, "Don't be a jerk. Because karma." Wall-E had the old environmentalism crap, and Toy Story had a "choose your own destiny" feel, but what separates those movies from the others is that their themes are not necessarily their message. Their adventures weren't with and end goal of learning something about themselves, but about the adventures themselves. It's a tough choice, but I guess I'd go with toy story, because of that ever-present feel of "I'm right here, but because of circumstances, I can't reach the goal I see before my eyes."

On the other hand, I do also love a story that brings a new and exciting world to life. Then I'd have to go for The Incredibles or Cars. Ughh, ok maybe it isn't as black and white as I thought.

Wow did you really needed to make a video to say that it's impossible/ hard to picked the best Pixar movie ever? Yes the episode is still funny but I can understand that it was hard to picked.

Also Chris, shame on you bailing out on WALL-E (before realising you were all switching it up) like that as it's one of my favourite film!

It should have been Wall-E vs. Up, but at least one of the picks was right.

I think Ratatouille deserved a mention just because it has a message that I think almost anyone can relate with, which is liking to do something that you shouldn't. It isn't just about a rat wanting to cook, it's about doing what you love no matter what others think and the obstacles around it.

Besides Wreck it Ralph is the best Pixar movie, since everyone seems to think that's who made it. Joking aside, yeah I'm with you guys this is way to hard, probably Up or Toy Story 3 just for the emotional roller-coaster they put me on.

Toy Story was my childhood.
The Incredibles i can never get tired of rewatching.
Cars had my favorite soundtrack.
Wall-E was the sweetest movie EVER.

any of these 4 can be number 1 on my list depending on my mood.
