I rewatched The God Dinosaur a couple of weeks ago. Definitely not a classic by any means but still heart warming in its own way. The animation for the scenery is absolutely STUNNING and possibly Pixar at its absolute best in that respect. Unfortunately it means the cartoony design of the dinosaur stands out a heck of a lot more which is one of the downsides.

Aside from Onward, Ive still not got round to seeing the Cars sequels oops. Not for me x

Im SO hyped for Soul though - give me that indirect Inside Out sequel yasss

I rewatched 'The Good Dinosaur' again the other day, too. I agree with your sentiments. But this is Disney & Pixar... I still cried! Pixar at their weakest is still very Dreamworks or Sony Animations or whatever at their absolute best, imo. laugh.gif

I also rewatched 'Wall-E'... still absolutely stunning and mesmerizing, 12 years later. Glorious. wub.gif Top 10 film of all time, my 2nd fave Pixar <3

I need to rewatch it, but 'Brave' is my 2nd least fave Pixar film, still. The first part is fine, but the 2nd is just a bit too ridiculous and I can't take it seriously. Only ever seen it once though, so maybe it won't be as bad on another watch?

'Cars 2' is definitely the absolute worst though. Awful! If ever there was an obvious "cash-in" that's it. 'Cars 3' is actually pretty good! I find the 1st one underrated anyway, but the 3rd really feels like a more natural sequel to the first than #2 does. But meh.

I'm SO excited for 'Soul'. wub.gif

I too have only seen 'Brave' once and never really had the desire to return to it. Maybe I need to and see if it's as unremarkable as I remember!

Oh go on then, let's do a full runthrough of this too, didn't see and don't plan on seeing the Cars sequels as they were most definitely not for me.

Toy Story
Toy Story 2
Monsters Inc
Finding Nemo
The Incredibles

^All childhood favourites and still classics that I love to this day. I can't think of anything new to say about them.

Ratatouille
WALL-E
Up
Inside Out
Toy Story 3
Coco

I'm singling these out from the others not at all because they're lower quality, but because I watched these when I was a bit older and it really highlighted how mature and wonderfully realised they can be. These are seriously quality films, certainly in Inside Out's case, I actually think that went much deeper than most children's films.

The Incredibles 2
A Bug's Life

^Very good, just not quite on the same level, A Bug's Life I've always found very underrated and Incredibles 2 is easily the most warranted/best sequel asides from the first two Toy Story ones.

Brave
Cars
The Good Dinosaur

^Not bad/had their moments but inessential. Brave featured in my studies as well, but the characters were so annoying and The Good Dinosaur (despite the excellent background visuals) has to be their most forgettable film oops.

Monsters University
Finding Dory
Toy Story 4

^I would file all of these under 'entertaining but entirely pointless outside of cash grabs' and kind of what I hate most about modern Disney oops. It pains me to say that about Toy Story 4 but I knew there was a reason I didn't run to the cinema for this, it just wasn't needed sad.gif

Yet to see Onward, just waiting until it's available in the UK to stream. It's constantly reminding me of that seemingly terrible Netflix movie Bright though laugh.gif Excited for Soul and that they seem to be sticking to original material now though!

I've still never seen Brave. I keep meaning to watch it! (That is awful seeing as I am from Scotland and the music from it was in my Higher music exam years ago)

Ranking:

Finding Nemo
Monsters Inc.
Inside Out
Toy Story 2
WALL-E
Finding Dory
The Incredibles
Onward
Toy Story 3
Coco
Toy Story 4
The Good Dinosaur
Ratatouille
Up
Toy Story
A Bug's Life
Cars
Monsters University
Cars 2

Brave
Cars 3
Incredibles 2

I really did not expect A Bug's Life to be so low tbh it's a great movie! MU I wasn't too keen on but it's not bad, same king of goes for Cars but it's lower because it spawned a bad sequel and holey put me off watching Cars 3. I STILL haven't got around to watching Brave or Incredibles 2 despite knowing full well I would enjoy them

It's literally down to merchandise. Merchandising was a Disney best at the time I think! I think I read it did double Toy Story's merch at one point or something, despite being the much lesser box office hit!

Oh believe me, I did too. sad.gif I didn't think much of it the first time I saw it way back in 2005, but I wasn't AS into films back then as I am now. So I rewatched it before 'Incredibles 2' and whilst appreciating aspects of it, I came out of watching it just feeling underwhelmed and "oh". The story was really thin and basic to me and there wasn't anything bringing me back to it. Thankfully, I loved the 2nd though. It had a lot more meat to it and I took more away from that than the 1st (obviously aha)

Will happily defend Ratatouille to the grave~

That top six could easily change depending on my mood — they're all incredible. It's only around Finding Dory where things start looking a little more mediocre.

I'll rank them once I've seen Onward!

Just finished Coco for the first time, the other one I hadn't seen. Really really good, much better than I thought it would be and christ the ending got to me! That'll definitely be near the top of my rankings.

I just prefer the others! TS started the franchise and is an amazing movie... but if I were to watch them again now TS would be at the bottom of my list (in my ranking though to be fair, all of Coco to Toy Story are very close). Its a cute story but TS2 introduced amazing new characters as did TS3 and both played with your emotions more than the original ever could. TS4 is still relatively new so where I rank it with the rest will likely change in another couple of years time

I'd go TS2 > TS4 > TS3 > TS

Though I really like them all, and could quite happily give them another watch right now!
