My Favorite Pixar Movies

on June 17, 2015

In honor of the new Pixar movie coming out this Friday: Inside Out, I thought I’d do a list of my Top 5 Pixar movies. Now I’ve grown up on Pixar movies and I have to say all of them are good, so it’s really hard to narrow them down to the best ones. But I’ll try my best.

Before I start, I need to give a shout out to Finding Nemo. It would have made it on this list except that it was my favorite movie when I was younger. So I watched it so many times that I got tired of it. It’s a great movie with a great story, memorable characters and great music, but unfortunately it will always be hard for me to watch because it was seen too often. Maybe Finding Dory will fix this for me, but for now, it doesn’t make it in the top 5.

So on to Number 5: Ratatouille
When I first saw this movie, I didn’t love it, but after multiple viewings it’s gotten better and better. I love Linguini’s antics and the fact that Remy does not speak English but is in fact a rat. There are so many quotes I love from this movie, that I use everyday such as “Let’s do this thing!”

Number 4 is: Wall-E
I wasn’t sure about this movie when I first saw it, since there is very little dialogue but I’ve found it’s one I can watch again and again. The love story between Wall-E and Eve is so cute and the constant playing of old musical music gives it a joyful quality that is endearing.

Number 3 is: Cars
Cars has been one of my favorites since it came into theaters. I love the music and still play Life is a Highway on every road trip I go on. Not only is the music amazing but the story is so beautiful. I love the message of taking life slow and actually building relationships with other people (or in this case cars).

Number 2 is: The Incredibles
I think the Incredibles passes up other Pixar movies for me, simply because it reminds me of my own family. I love how real the relationships are in this movie, how the little arguments and discussions perfectly reflect real life issues in real families. But in the end, even with all the craziness I can say along with Dash “I love our family.”

And finally number 1 is: Toy Story 2
I love all the Toy Story movies but #2 is my favorite because it came out during the right time in my life. The first Toy Story was a bit scary to me when I saw it for the first time, and even though I loved Toy Story 3, there’s something special to me about the second movie. I saw it three times in theaters alone and again and again since. I love the storyline of Woody being kidnapped or toynapped and all of the other characters going on a rescue mission. Plus any of the Toy Story movies have countless jokes that keep me laughing. The addition of Jessie and Bullseye probably helped too. It was also the first time I’d seen animated movies create a blooper real, that I found hilarious as a kid.

So there’s my list. It probably differs form yours, and it may change for me in the future. Especially with Inside Out coming out this week and Amy Poehler, one of my favorite comedians, playing a large role, this list may change before the week it done.
