With the release of the long-awaited ‘Incredibles’ sequel, let’s take a moment to look over the entire slate of Pixar feature films to date and decide which one we enjoy the most. The studio has certainly given us a lot to choose from.
We actually ran a similar poll back in 2011, but Pixar has cranked out nine more movies since then, most of them widely acclaimed and popular. Despite a couple of disappointments (‘Cars 2’, ‘Brave’), one box office flop (‘The Good Dinosaur’), and the fall from grace of Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, the studio still has one of the strongest track records in all of Hollywood.
For this poll, I’m forcing you to choose your #1 favorite Pixar movie. You must select only one option.
The last time we did this, ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘WALL-E’ tied for first place. I expect that ‘The Incredibles’ may take the lead again here, and it’s probably my instinct to choose that one as well. The more I think about it, however, the more I want to go to bat for ‘Ratatouille’. Although a box office hit and an Oscar winner in its day, the film is often overlooked within the Pixar catalog. It has a very sweet story and I still hold it up as one of the best illustrations of the dynamic between an artist and a critic.
‘Inside Out’ also hit me really hard in the feels.
What’s your favorite?
