There have been 14 Pixar films since 1995 when “Toy Story” was first put on the big screen. Pixar currently has nine movies in production including sequels like: “Toy Story 4”, “The Incredibles 2”, “Finding Dory”, and “Cars 3”, with many more planned for the future.  Here’s my list for the best Pixar movies (not Disney movies):

14.) “Cars 2” (2011) – I didn’t see this movie because from the preview, though I loved its predecessor, it didn’t look good at all.

13.) “Brave” (2012) – I didn’t see this one either because it really was not appealing to me, given the setting of the movie and the main character being a girl.

12.) “Monsters University” (2013) – A look at the collegiate life of monsters.

11.) “Cars” (2006) – I’ve watched this movie probably about 75 times. “Life is a Highway!”

10.) “Up” (2009) – I cried in this one. When the movie flashes back to Carl and his wife’s meeting, marriage, and her death, I did let a tear or two drop.

9.) “Toy Story 2” (1999) – “The CLAAAW!” I’d do anything to go to Pizza Planet in real life.

8.) “A Bug’s Life” (1998) – Flik was my role model for a long time, and the circus bugs were so funny.

7.) “Finding Nemo” (2003) – “P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney!”

6.) “Monsters Inc.” (2001) – “Wazowski, you forgot to file your paperwork.”

5.) “The Incredibles” (2004) – Action, comedy, drama, and a great lesson about family? What more could you need.

4.) “Toy Story” (1995) – The one that started it all, literally.

3.) “Toy Story 3” (2010) – I cried in this one, too. It really made me think about growing up and how challenging it is.

2.) “Ratatouille” (2007) – This movie was all-around cool. I actually became a better cook from watching it.

1.) “WALL-E” (2008) – A lonely robot who finds love and chases it across the galaxy. Not only was this a good animated movie, it also gave a great view of humans in the future.

At this rate, it doesn’t seem like Pixar is going to stop anytime soon.
