My Preferred Pixar Classics


Fair midnight, everyone. I know I should be asleep by now, but considering I just had a modest work-out, I don't think it would be wise to doze off right away. My veins are still popping out and--anyway. I was browsing the various film galleries on Entertainment Weekly's website, and came across one titled, "11 Pixar Classics". Allow me to list them, in order of greatness I'm assuming:

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

It's hard to believe that there are merely eleven feature-films in Pixar's history (excluding a disappointing sequel to Cars). To think, as a whole, they all grossed millions of dollars and are individually cherished by audiences all over. And it was rather clever of Walt Disney Studios to join forces with the major company, isn't it? Now, I will not waste any time, for I must get some rest. (In case you were wondering why, I am looking forward to waking up bright-and-early with my dad to watch All About Eve.) So, without further delay or elongated introductions, here is my list of my personal eleven Pixar classics, in order:

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

I must accentuate how dearly I adore Pixar films, and sincerely hope they create another brilliant piece of animation. Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. For me it really depends on how you're making the list. I think I agree with EW's choice of having Toy Story take the number 1 spot because of the movie's significance outside of its specific content. It's an important movie and that adds to its value as a classic movie. As far as listing the movies for their enjoyment value, yours is a better list. But for myself, I would list Toy Story 3, The Incredibles, and Wall*E at the top, but I won't name favorites or fill out the rest of the list, I enjoy them all, even Cars 2 which may not have had as touching as a story at the core of it as the others did, but it was still a fun, enjoyable, moneymaking movie.

    1. I completely agree with you, on why EW named Toy Story its first choice. The film allowed the rest of the Pixar classics to be made, as well as introduced the achievement of (excellent) three-dimensional animated features with a heart.
      And it was incredibly difficult to create my own list, for all Pixar films are absolutely wonderful in their individual theme.

  3. Wow, Toy Story dropped from 1 on their list to 8 on yours. I'm glad to see Monsters, Inc. got more love from you though, as I enjoyed that film quite a bit.

    Here's hoping that BRAVE gets a top spot on both lists!
