Pixar Movies, Ranked


  • There are people in this world who will say “Oh, I actually think Ratatouille is the best Pixar movie”, because they want to be the person who says “Oh, I actually think Ratatouille” is the best Pixar movie”. Do not listen to these people.
  • Have you seen the original Toy Story recently? That movie is terrible. And the toys themselves are even worse. It should be called “Woody And His Jerk Friends Spend 82 Minutes Out-Jerking Each Other”.
  • “Up is so moving! How is it so low!” No, the first few minutes of Up are moving. The movie slides steadily downhill from there, to a place (geriatric duelling?) not even Russell can save us from.
  • The list doesn’t get messy until 12. Bug’s Life is forgettable, sure, but it’s still a fun movie about bugs. It’s only when you get to Toy Story, Brave (aka Sleep) and the Two Films Which Shall Not Be Named that you’re dealing with actual bad movies.
