POLL: What is your favorite Pixar film?

Posted by · 1:23 pm · June 10th, 2009

Now that our “most influential” series is complete, I figured a light and frothy poll would be just what the doctor ordered.  Now that “Up” has been in theaters for a couple of weeks here in the US (and as it slowly makes its way to other territories), I figured I’d go ahead and poll the readership on your favorite feature Pixar endeavor.

For my thoughts on this issue, check my list of the studio’s efforts from a few weeks back.  Have your say in the sidebar poll and in the comments below.

    For me it is between WALL-E and Ratatouille. It changes everyday. Today I felt like Ratatouille was the better one, so I voted for that one, but tomorrow I might feel different.

    prediction: cars and a bug’s life get no votes.
    or at least i hope they don’t.

    Still haven’t seen “Up,” so my vote may have been a bit premature, but I went with “Finding Nemo,” which I still think is one of the best animated movies of all time. I still think it should have snagged a best pic nomination. But “Ratatouille” was a close second, another movie I think should have snagged a BP nom.

    Finding Nemo easily. It’s Pixar’s masterpiece. Wall-E reminds of Saving Private Ryan. The beginning is beyond brilliant and the rest is just a really great film. Not to say I don’t love Wall-E, cause I do. And I just caught Ratatouille again the other night. Forgot how wonderful it is, with some of Pixar’s best voice acting from Ian Holm and Peter O’Toole.

    1. Finding Nemo
    2. Wall-E
    3. Ratatouille
    4. Toy Story 2
    5. Monster’s Inc.
    6. Toy Story
    7. The Incredibles
    8. A Bug’s Life
    9. Cars

    Haven’t seen Up yet. Can’t wait though!

    I went with Wall-E (though I LOVE Finding Nemo).

    Those who haven’t watched “a bug’s life” recently, need to rewatch it. It’s an absolutely tremendous film. It features Pixar’s best villian, Hopper (voiced wonderfully by Kevin Spacey), has a wonder assortment of characters (in particular, the “circus bug” troupe), vivid animation, and does a wonderful job of perspective in helping it’s audience to see the word from a bug’s perspective. Being a huge fan of the SEVEN SAMURAI only added to my overall enjoyment of the screenplay, and the ants predictament with the grasshoppers. I bet this film will just extraordinary on Blue-Ray.

    1. Toy Story (nostalgia wins every time)
    2. Finding Nemo (masterpiece)
    3. Wall-E ( Beautiful animation and culturally significant)
    4. Ratatouille (O’Toole gets nostalgic over food!)
    5. The Incredibles ( I love Superheroes)
    6. Monsters Inc. (gets better the older I get)
    7. Up (shouldn’t have had a “bad guy”)
    8. Toy Story 2 ( I hate Joan Cusack’s voice)
    9. Cars (Nostalgic for my father, not me.)
    10. Bugs Life (I saw ANTZ first)

    Haven’t seen ‘Up’ yet, so it’s a tossup between Wall-E and Ratatouille.

    1.UP
    2.Wall-E
    3.Ratatouille
    4.The Incredibles
    5. Finding Nemo/Toy Story 2

    Not much separates no.1 to no.3 in my book. Though for the record, I did enjoy all their 10 films. Heck, If Cars is airing on TV, I’m still more inclined to put down the remote and watch it than most other films.

    1.UP
    2.Ratatouille
    3.Wall-E

    These are my top 3. I could easily make a case for each one as no.1. Pixar really took it up a notch with their last 3 films from my point of view. Overall, I own every pixar film on DVD and will do so on Blu-Ray. I enjoy all of them really-yes, even Cars. For the sake of rankings, Their last 3 films are my faves.

    As much as I love WALL-E, the top spot in this poll belongs to Nemo. Hands down.

    Tough.. but Wall-E

    I definitely think it’s between Ratatouille and Finding Nemo, mostly because the stories themselves are so wonderful. Monsters inc would be a close third, and I must say it is generally unappreciated for its brilliant premise and voice acting.

    It’s a toss up between Wall-E and UP for me.

    RATATAOUILLE, their only masterpiece, followed by the cute A BUG’S LIFE.

    The rest = meh.

    Nemo…for me it is head and shoulders above the rest.

    It’s Toy Story for me. I remember more lines in that movie than in the other Pixar films. (Same for Shrek 1 and remembering it’s lines)

    Light-Beer
    To infinity… and BEYOND!
    It’s not flying, it’s falling with style.
    A stranger… from the outside… Ooooooooo!

    And now that LEGO is in the third one, I’m guessing they will make a LEGO Toy Story video game with all featuring all three films.

    I’ve always liked the Brad Bird ones best: Ratatouille and The Incredibles. Not just great animated films, but great films.

    Cars got a vote after all!

    Interesting how close the #1 and #2 films are. I expected “WALL-E” to blow all comers out of the water. Maybe the cult moved on after last year.

    Up, saw it yesterday and it is easily Pixars best, great characters, emotion and story. I have nothing but positive things to say about this film.

    Ratatouille is a close second though. and Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc are both good, the rest are meh.
