This overlaps a little with our history of Pixar thread, but I thought a poll would be fun. So: what is you favorite feature length Pixar film?


For me, the clear choice is WALL-E, the one Pixar film I've watched more times than any other. It has my favorite characters, the best story arc (IMO), my favorite Pixar score - both Newman's original music and the compiled pieces, homages to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and I think the space dance is the most beautiful sequence ever captured on film. And it's a lock-in for my top three films of all time.

Subjectively and personally, I think I'd go for Up. I find it the strongest one emotionally, and I think the energy is a little better sustained than in Wall-E, even though the latter made a more overwhelming impression on first viewing.

Sad to say, I've only seen The Incredibles once, and that was several years ago. I definitely need to get to it again.

I hate trying to figure this one out. From TOY STORY onwards, nearly each and every one of Pixar's releases have impacted my deeply in their own unique ways (I think A BUG'S LIFE and CARS 2 were the only ones that never really did anything for me). When I think pure entertainment value, THE INCREDIBLES, FINDING NEMO and MONSTERS INC. are the first ones that come to mind. When I think along the lines of more challenging, heartfelt storytelling, my mind reflects on RATATOUILLE, WALL-E and BRAVE. Everything else pretty much fits comfortably in between, and they're each so strikingly beautiful that ranking them seems a terrible injustice.

Since it's freshest in my mind, and since I've spent absurd amounts of time defending it, I'll go against the popular grain and cast my vote in for BRAVE. The other ones hardly need defending, but I'm afraid BRAVE will prove to be severely underrated down the road.

Hi, Jeremy! Any relation to Verlyn Ratzlaff, who is a C&MA pastor in New York State?

So is Verlyn, if I'm not mistaken.

FWIW, I was just asked to rank the Pixar features, and this is what I came up with:

 

1. Finding Nemo
2. Wall*E
3. Toy Story
4. Ratatouille
5. Up
6. Toy Story 3
7. The Incredibles
8. Brave
9. Monsters, Inc.
10. Toy Story 2

11. Cars

12. A Bug's Life
13. Cars 2
14. Monsters University
 
--I'd rank a few Pixar shorts above several of these features, but since we're sticking to feature-length Pixars only, there ya go.
