Favorite Pixar Movies – Staff Picks

With Finding Dory breaking records, we asked five TV and City staff members to name their favorite Pixar film, and tell us why it stands out to them.

Toy Story Trilogy (1995, 1999, 2010)


Ezra JacobsNo animated movies have been able to top the story of Woody and Buzz (and Andy!). The original completely revolutionized computer animated forever.Toy Story is a movie adults love even more than their kids. And something rare for any series: the two sequels were just as great as their predecessors. Here’s hoping the unnecessary Toy Story 4 lives up to our expectations.

Inside Out (2015)


Jack FaivishThis flick about a young girl dealing with her emotions is inspiring and heartwarming. It’s seems impossible to make the concept (showing the workings of a child’s brain) work, but somehow Pixar had another home-run. The all-star voice cast only adds to this incredible journey. If you claim you didn’t tear up, you’re lying. Nothing less than Pixar’s greatest film.

Monsters, Inc. (2001)


Judah TeitelbaumOut of all the studio’s movies, Monsters, Inc. balances comedy and heartwarming moments the best. Viewers are sucked into Mike and Sully’s world, with so much detail. For a movie about wasting energy, no energy was wasted in it’s creation.

The Incredibles (2004)


Moey BerkowitzThis might not be the best Pixar movie, but it’s my absolute favorite. With a fun plot and well defined characters, The Incredibles stands out as another example of Pixar’s world-building skills. Some joke that it’s the best “Fantastic Four” movie ever made. The 2019 sequel can’t get here soon enough!

Ratatouille (2007)


Elazar Abrahams: Great characters, animation, humor, and story. Patton Oswalt delights as Remy, a rat who dreams of being a chef. It somehow manages to keep you invested despite a low-stakes plot. It won an Oscar, and rightfully so. Ratatouille is the epitome of a Pixar film.

  1. These are some great picks. My most favourite and memorable pixar movies would be: Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, A Bugs Life and Up. I find they have so much charm and a mix of emotions for both kids and adults.

  2. Great choices, but where in Captain Birdseye’s beard is Finding Nemo?! It’s got the comedy, the looks and I’ve never gotten so emotional over fish in my life! Consider ya blog followed by the way, great content here!
