Beauty and the Beast is the best thing Disney have ever done. Beautiful animation of one of my favourite fairy tales.

I've seen The Incredibles a couple of times, and while there are good aspects, I've never really felt that it was, well, incredible, the way most other people seem to.

Well those are the top ten, I won't say if you got them in the right order, though. Anybody else want to take a crack at the order?
Oh, what they hey...

1. Up
2. Finding Nemo
4. The Lion King
5. Toy Story 3
6. Spirited Away
7. Ratatouille
8. Toy Story
9. Monsters, Inc.
10. Princess Mononoke

The Incredibles was one of the first 'date' movies Michelle and I watched.

If I had voted for any of the Toy Story movies, this would've been the one to make my ballot. The animation is far superior to the original and I found myself far more engaged with the story of Toy Story 3 than in either of its predecessors.

Well...almost 20 years later, I would hope the animation is superior.
Yes, but some of the animation in the original film is downright bad. Sid's dog in particular was not well done at all and it bugs the **** out of me every time I watch it. Slinky makes a more convincing dog than that thing.

Toy Story 3 was #24 on my list. I love the entire trilogy, but I felt that the nostalgia really took this one home, expect for the amazing third act. Everything was just good, but nothing that amazing. But again all 3 films are great fun and I love them all.

I really should sit down and watch a Toy Story movie sometime...

Toy Story 3 is my favorite part of the trilogy. I even consider it as one of my favorite films of all time. It works on every level. This is what I wrote about it in my Top 101 thread:


Pixar made some of the best American animated movies of all time during the 1995-2010 era and I bet everyone has his/her personal favorite one. Toy Story 3 is mine.

This film manages to be wildly entertaining and is full of great comedy and exciting plotlines, while still maintaining a certain overarching depth to the story that's being told.
The whole trilogy is one of the best and most original stories about the transience of existence, in my opinion, but this last entry tackles the topic in the darkest and most profound manner in the form of its villain, Lotso.
Lotso gets confronted with the reality of his own transience and uses the 'unfairness' of his fate as an excuse to act immoral. If anything (including himself) ends, morality is simply an illusion anyway. On that immoral basis and with the power that attitude offers him, he decides to pick out a few fellow toys with whom he then founds a cruel and terrorizing reign over a fragile community (in this case the toys of the Day Care).
I love it!

This film is very clever and has a lot of interesting stuff going on for kids and adults alike. It's truly one of the best family pictures I've ever seen. It's also full of inventive filmmaking and great visuals. It's a magnificent film and I still like it as much as the first time I watched it in the cinema.

P.S. I cried at the end.
It was number 4 on my list!

3 is definitely the best of the TS films.

Didn't make my list though.

I watched Toy Story 3 just last week and cried pretty much the whole way through. You may consider that the mark of a good film, I'm not sure. I feel like everything possible is done to tug on the heartstrings. From the way the song from the first film cuts out and we see the toys haven't been played with to the end where... well, spoiler alert, but the end, anyway. It's actually a really dark film. The Alien 3 of the Toy Story franchise. I can't help thinking that the toys in this film are actually a metaphor for parents, unwanted once their kid grows up and leaves for college, and it's pretty heartbreaking.

Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
Toy Story 3 was one of the best films of its year - a very good film - but it didn't make my list.
