All 15 Pixar Movies, Ranked From Worst to Best

Vulture describes All 15 Pixar Movies Ranked.

  1. WALL-E (2008)
  2. Toy Story (1995)
  3. Finding Nemo (2003)
  4. Toy Story 2 (1999)
  5. The Incredibles (2004)
  6. Toy Story 3 (2010)
  7. Inside Out (2015)
  8. Ratatouille (2007)
  9. Up (2009)
  10. Monsters, Inc. (2001)
  11. Cars (2006)
  12. A Bug’s Life (1998)
  13. Monsters University (2013)
  14. Brave (2012)
  15. Cars 2 (2011)

I haven't seen Cars 2, so I agree it's the worst. I also haven't seen Inside Out yet but it looks really interesting to me. Otherwise I agree with all their descriptions and rankings, though I would swap The Incredibles and Toy Story. I think it's accurate to describe The Incredibles as the best superhero movie ever made (and what a Fantastic Four movie should be) and also a great spy movie (it would be in my top tier of Bond films).

Are Pixar films declining in quality? To that I'll add this graph based on my rankings. I think it's safe to say they're in a bit of a slump.

It's all in the perspective. My rankings would be nothing like this. Here's my thoughts as to why....

Finding Nemo (2003)
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Toy Story (1995)
The Incredibles (2004)
Up (2009)
WALL-E (2008)
Toy Story 2 (1999)
Toy Story 3 (2010)
Ratatouille (2007)
Cars (2006)
A Bug’s Life (1998)
Monsters University (2013)
Brave (2012)
Cars 2 (2011)

Pixar's growth parallels my childrens' growth, for the most part. The older was born in 2000, so at that point TS2 was just out. As a family we latched on to Finding Nemo, and it has clear staying power. Visually infreakingcredible, beautiful, funny, heartwarming story, and great quotable lines. The same is completely true for Monsters Inc (a close second with Toy Story). The fact that we go back to those movies over and over again means that something stuck with us on them. TS3 on down were mostly meaningless to us, with perhaps the exception of Brave but only because of the readheadedness.

Inside Out (2015)
