Top Ten Best Pixar Movies

What are the best movies ever made by the best animation company in the world?

The Top Ten

1 Toy Story

It kicks more ass than any of the others, although the others all kick a fair amount of ass. This one is a classic and it started the success that Pixar is.

It's a good movie and coincidently, it was first released in the year when I was born 1995. I have fond memories of this movie and without this movie, I'll never even think of pursuing animation and story development in my career path

The first movie that I ever watched and liked

This is no doubt the best Pixar movie of all time! - awssteelers

2 The Incredibles

Highly regarded as Pixar's best movie, The Incredibles is a wonderful adventure that provides the perfect combination of the best of superhero movies, along with family comedy. It's hilarious to see two superheroes fight like husband and wife!

My favourite but I wish they'd make Incredibles 2

Don't get Tired of watching this Movie... Don't get me wrong, I enjoy every Pixar Movie, but this one Much more. -RMJ

Great animation - ElSherlock

3 Finding Nemo

Best. Movie. Ever. Everything about it, the characters, and story line, the animations, and especially the music. The music is one of the best things about it for sure. I don't know how this movie isn't number one. Also, Disney and Pixar couldn't have picked better actors to do the voices for Nemo, Dory, and Marlin. And as I said before, Best. Movie. Ever.

This movie is excellent. This is not only my favorite Pixar movie, it is also my 2nd favorite movie of all time, just behind How to Train Your Dragon from Dreamworks. I am a huge fan of all the films both Dreamworks and Pixar create.

This is the greatest movie of ALL time. This is a very cute movie. Also touches the heart at the end!

The action scenes are well done - ElSherlock

4 Up

Up manages to reduce me to tears within the first 10 minutes, than any other movie in it's entirety. By far Up's most mature movie, with plenty of colorful and quirky characters for younger children to enjoy. Up is truly a masterpiece that, like Toy Story 3, was nominated for multiple Oscars.

We do realize that there's only 13 movies right? There all up here. Anyway, love Dug and Kevin. I always liked how he said: "Hi. My name is Dug. You are my master. " And Kevin was just funny. And how many movies can make you cry in the BEGINNING? - Pikachulover1

Oh this movie is so good! Every movie on this list deserve to be number 1. Up is one of the most touching movies I've ever seen, this movie never fails to make me cry, the music and the characters and plot are all so perfect. Pixar did and always
Does and amazing job.

Pixar can make anyone cry, and up is no exception

5 Monsters, Inc.

One of the funniest and most emotional Pixar movies, with a touching and perfect ending.

Monsters, Inc. Is an absolutely fantastic movie. Period.

Brilliant movie

7? great movie deservew top 2 spot - CrowdedChisel

6 Wall-E

Great. I love that there is such a powerful message in this film, this is probably there best with Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Monster's Inc.

A powerful, beautiful film. You've gotta love how Pixar can make love blossom without words. Wall-E is likeable and sweet, an amazing character. - sameera62

Wall-e is the cutest animated character ever. the only thing he has as a mimic is his eyes, but they're enough to tell his feelings.

Wall e should be #1. it is so good

7 Toy Story 3

The best Toy Story ever made! It had a good storyline and I hope it wins best picture this year. Also the number 1 animation of all time! - roblist

A beautiful and funny movie that is by far better than it's prequels. It is also the 8th highest-grossing movie of all time, making it Pixar's most succesful.

While watching this movie I'm pretty sure I cried 5 times. This is just a sad story and I'd be happy if it ended there. But there's a TOY STORY 4 that's been released. Haven't watched it yet but definitely will to see if it was really that necessary or if it was just a waste of money. But this movie is definitely awesome. Wonderful animation that follows a thrilling story-line. Memorable characters saying good by for the penultimate time.

8 Toy Story 2

Toy Story is like the original Star Wars movie because this movie is the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy. It's so great I can't even fit all of its greatness into this comment. The theme about everything coming to an end and whether we should accept it sooner or wait it out is a very mature dilemma and probably the best in the pixar movies. The visuals in the movie are purely stunning. The airport scene, Al's Toy Barn, and the scene where Woody gets restored are imprinted in my mind forever and they could be a short on their own. Jesse's back story rivals that of Up's first 10 minutes of heartbreaking-ness. It should be higher if not number one. Ratatouille should be higher too.

This is my favorite toy story film which is weird because its usually everyone's least favorite

The third was my least favourite because I loved the first two when I was little and I was still pretty young when 3 came out, but even then, it got boring pretty quickly. - 3DG20

Should be higher! - 23MACCAja

The characters are still unforgettable - ElSherlock

9 Inside Out

"Meet the little voices inside your head."

As to be expected, those emotions will make the viewer emotional as it teaches us the importance of emotions and expressing them. One of the best movies animated film I've seen in awhile and it proofs that Pixar is back with the groove.

I can not wait to see this movie. I bet it is going to be one of THE best Pixar movie ever! I watched some trailers and I love the characters already!

I love this movie! It is not my favorite movie of all time but it is my favorite movie from Pixar along with Cars, Up and Toy Story.

10 Ratatouille

One of the best films of all time. Great effects from Pixar and it leaves other movies for dead! It definitely is one of the best films of the year

Although WALL-E is my favorite Pixar movie, I had to vote for this because it belongs in the top 10, no question. You know a kid's movie is good is adult love it, too. Ratatouille is a movie you can watch infinitely. It never gets old.

1. Ratatoille because he is a rat and he is friends with a human 2. Wall-e it shows how much humans are polluting the earth 3. Finding nemo marlin and dory go all across the sea to save a little cute fish 4. Toy story 3 it shows how much toys care for their owners 5. The incredibles funny story of a superhero family 6. Toy story amazing story and just love you got a friend in me song 7. Up up has a romance tragedy funny moments action and more but still ratatouille kicks buttux hello!

Ratatouille is better than Inside Out, Toy Story 2/3, and even Finding Nemo. I think Ratatouille is better aimed to an older audience, and far more palatable to me than a lot of these other ones. Kids think it's okay but don't really see the themes in the movie. This masterpiece is very underrated.

The Contenders

11 Cars

LOVE it! This movie is by far the best in this list. I think that it deserves to be #1 by far! I have seen it so many times I can't count. It has amazing quotes and lovely characters

CARS should be top 1.. I love this movie since I've saw it... its a COUNTY story and lots of best QUOTES.. pixar ever...

Whats Cars doing at 11! It should at least be right under Toy Story. -

Hey it should be in the top 10

12 Coco

Loved it. It really surprised me since this and Inside Out were Pixar's only good originals this decade. (Brave and The Good Dinosaur both sucked)

Better than even Toy Story

FiGHt mE

A Masterpiece that feels more emotional and connected to the audience

The best Pixar movie

13 A Bug's Life

A bugs life is the only pixar movie that has a terrible darkness in it. Hopper the main villain, is very creepy, mean and makes the ants do nonstop slave work. I love Hopper! The darkness of this movie is at the end of course. I nominate this movie as a make you laugh, and scream adventure. This movie by far is the best pixar movie.

What? I grew up on this movie! This has an amazing plot!

People saying it aged badly this was the 1990s.
Toy Story and A Bug's Life started Pixar you wouldn't have it without them.

The concept of the movie is quite interesting - ElSherlock

14 Monsters University

A prequel that happens before Monsters inc and show how mike a sully first met in college

This is deserves to be higher! Best movies of 2013! Pixar has a good job make a prequel that happen before Monster, Inc. And I almost like all of characters too. Sometimes funny and cool yet. And have a great graphics and pictures. Just love it!

Great animation - ElSherlock

Monsters University is definitely my favorite Pixar movie of all the time! While Up and The Good Dinasour got me so emotional, Toys Story and Brave got me hyped, and Wall-E and Monsters Inc got me relieved and really connected to them, Monsters University manages to get me exotic, hyped, enthusiastic, relieved, and emotional altogether. It has such a developed plot, beautiful graphics, peaceful soundtrack, lovely characters, exciting events to live with, and most importantly:

It got something to relate and get connected with. It got such complex morals...something that many movies actually contradict with it.

While many movies explain us about how we succeed in many things the more we try, this movie literally explains the OPPOSITE. Monsters University has taught me that us humans are not good at everything no matter how we try; and if even if we did, we won't be mastering them. Each one of us should accept his/her strengths, weaknesses, benefits, and disadvantages and ...more

15 Finding Dory

The movie was way better than the first one.

Are you guys kidding me this is a great movie it deserves to be on the top ten

17 Toy Story 4 Toy Story 4

Quick History:

I'm not the biggest Toy Story fan. The movies are good, but I don't like watching them. So, when I found out Pixar was making a fourth film, I wasn't interested. Trailers came out and I still wasn't interested. Then, I saw Chris Stuckmann's "Toy Story 4" review. He really liked it, so I decided to give it a chance. A few days ago, I was at McDonald's with my mom. She was looking through films playing in theaters. "Toy Story 4" was an option, so I decided to check it out. I went in with low expectations, and came out with my mind blown. This isn't just the best Toy Story movie, it's one of the best films I've ever seen! I love everything about this movie! I can't think of anything I didn't like! definitely the best Pixar film I've ever seen.

Easily the funniest in the whole franchise and a story worth being told. - BurnAux

Gabby Gabby was made in hell

Update: I'm that guy who watched Toy Story 4 because of Chris Stuckmann. A week after I saw this movie I changed my mind. This isn't one of the best films I've ever seen. This is the best film I've ever seen.

18 Cars 3

Massive improvement of Cars 2 and nearly met the success of Cars

This movie wasn't good. The entire conflict could've been solved by upgrading Mcqueen to have faster speed. He IS a car. Before you argue by saying he's a talking car and they can't do that, he was repaired earlier when he crashed, so why couldn't they just give him more speed? Not to mention the ending was completely stupid. Why would they allow Lightning to let Cruz finish the race? AND HOW DID SHE WIN? She was way behind when she started, and she has no experience racing. The first movie was way better in my opinion. - piper1212

This is a massive improvement over Cars 2 - ElSherlock

I saw it yesterday, and it's actually really good! I think it's the best Cars movie so far. Yes, it's far from the best Pixar movie, but I think it's a big step-up from Cars 2 and it's the sequel we deserve! The only complaints I had were that in my opinion some scenes dragged on too long, and it lacked in terms of comedy. They were trying to make it all big and dramatic and didn't put a lot of comedy in it, which kind of had me bored with some parts. There were some parts that made me chuckle, but it wasn't laugh-out-loud funny. But I think the new characters were very well written! Jackson Storm was a villain where I genuinely got pissed whenever he came on screen or when I even heard his name! And that's good! He seems like a true villain and enemy to Lightning! Not the best Pixar has done, but still worth watching at least once. I would give this movie an 8/10. - UltimateCraig

Pixar's original animation. For those who don't know, this is where that lamp in their intro comes from.

Yeah the Lamp. Love his intro - codgtamk34

23 Onward

Why is this higher than already released movies?

Well I guess Pixar has really high hopes for this movie.

Not even out yet!

Releasing in March 2020.

24 The Ghost of Lord Farquaad

Even though its DreamWorks ( one of my favorite studios ) its awesome. I just don't like the spiders. but bringing lord fart ( lol ) quad ( he has very small quads lol ). genius!

This is Dreamworks, not Pixar.

The best pixar movie ever. - TeamRocket747

25 Mike's New Car

Funny - iliekpiez

Great Short to Monsters Inc.

26 Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6 was made by Walt Disney Animation studios, not Pixar. It's still a good movie though.

Not pixar

27 For the Birds
28 Mower Minions

Not Pixar - TeamRocket747

29 Cars 2

Cars 2 was just decent. The story is too complicated and confusing, the characters are one-dimensional and underdeveloped and the jokes and humours are bad and not funny. But the animation is astonishing and feels atmosphere when they go around the world in Tokyo, Paris, Italy and London. It's still a fun action-packed movie to watch with your family.

Finding Dory and Toy Story 4 are not even out yet and Frozen is not Pixar. This movie was decent in my opinion.

It was alright

This movie has a very beautiful story to it! I am proud of Disney/Pixar for coming up with a beautiful tale with a priceless lesson behind it! Well done Pixar/Disney - docreywashere

In my opinion This movie does not get enough respect. Very Underrated. I love this movie

The movie is new, interesting and very high quality graphics enabled work!
It is best for children, mostly girls but adults might also enjoy it!

How is this below Cars 2?

31 The Good Dinosaur

This is a way too underrated movie. The story and animation are beautiful and I personally love it. This amazing pic at movie needs more respect.

This and two others are the only Pixar movies I disliked.

Why is this lower than Brave?

Pretty decent, overhated. - iliekpiez
