This amuses me that the 3rd best Toy Story is #1 at this point - admittedly, this is the best animated trilogy of all time, and quite possibly in the running for best trilogy of all time, but still:)...

It's a B movie with an A message...when I went opening weekend for my girls' birthday party, I never thought this would blow up like it did.  I was like, "cute movie, nice message, but what on Earth were they thinking with the snowman":)...I'm not sure I've changed my mind from the initial impression:)...

14th – Ratatouille

804 points – 34 votes (2 Top 5, 5 top 10 )

2013 – 8th  

2014 – 7th  

2016 –13th    

2018 – 13th 

My personal ranking – 70th – I think it is a very good film, but not a top tier film. (That line sounds familiar…)

 

 

 

I think that I have made this comment every time these lists are made, but I never quite get how well this film does every time. Like it is a good film (and a rare example of a Pixar film where the ending is the highlight), but it never quite feels like it has that extra wow factor of films worthy of a top 20 placement. Yet here we are, once again, well inside the top 20 and fighting it out among the elite.

 

That being said, 14th is the worst ever finish for Ratatouille, but this takes into account the previously mentioned fact that the top 13 are free and clear ahead of everything below them and as such, the only way is down really as new releases come out and push it down another spot.

13th – Toy Story 3

867 points – 32 votes ( 1 First, 5 Top 5, 2 top 10 )

2013 – 2nd   

2014 – 4th  

2016 –10th    

2018 – 5th 

My personal ranking – 76th – I think it is a very good film, but not a top tier film. (That line sounds even more familiar now…)

 

 

 

Well, would you look at that; the huddled masses actually agree with me on what is the third best Toy Story film for a change. My personal order is 2, 1, 3, 4, but that has never been replicated in a list countdown before and likely will not be here. But we are closer than usual.

 

What is more interesting is that a Toy Story film (ignoring 4) has finished outside the top 11 for the first time ever. That is a big deal and while I do not see Toy Story 3 dropping into even the 20s anytime soon (it is more likely to rebound back into the top 5 than do that), but it is a downward trend all the same.

12th – Inside Out

877 points – 31 votes ( 2 Firsts, 3 Top 5, 4 top 10 )

2013 – Not Eligible  

2014 – Not Eligible

2016 –1st

2018 – 1st  

My personal ranking – 10th – When this came out, it immediately became my favourite Pixar film of all time. It no longer is, but that isn’t on this film.

 

 

 

First ever appearance on a list – 1st

Second ever appearance on a list – 1st

Third ever appearance on a list 12th.

 

That is quite the slide. I mean, 12th best animation of all time still suggests that we are talking about a pretty decent film, but it is a big (and surprising drop).

What makes the finish even more stark is how you can see from a few posts above that 29 lists in, this film was sitting pretty in 5th place only about 50 points off the top. So those final 11 lists really shook things up as far as emotion is concerned.

I did not see this coming.

11th – Finding Nemo

881 points – 34 votes ( 3 First, 5 Top 5, 2 top 10 )

2013 – 10th  

2014 – 10th  

2016 –14th    

2018 – 11th 

My personal ranking – 42,595th – The worst Pixar film by a mile (well, thanks to Good Dinosaur slightly less than a mile. Still, I detest this film.)

 

  

But seeing as this film is consistently about 11th on our all-time list, I am clearly the outlier. Don’t get me wrong, I still know that my opinion me the correct one, but it surprises me how so many people are wrong so consistently. J

Thinking about this list, 11th actually feels like a disappointing finish for a film that was topping the standings at the halfway point and was still top three after 27 lists and 4th after 29. Yet just like Inside Out it has gone from being 50 points off the top spot to outside the top 10 in the space of 11 lists.

10th – Aladdin

889 points – 31 votes (2 First, 7 top 5, 4 top 10 )

2013 – 9th  

2014 – 6th  

2016 –9th    

2018 – 10th 

My personal ranking – 4th – My second favourite WDAS film and a film I can happily watch again and again and again ad infinitum.

 

 

 

That is 5 countdowns and 5 top 10 finishes for Aladdin. There will not be many films that manage that I think. Definitely no more than 10 will do it at least. This does technically mean that this is a joint worst finish for Aladdin, but I think it is still a decent result.

Some of the best animation, best voice acting, best songs. This film has everything one wants from an animated musical and if you do not like it… how?

9th – The Incredibles

895 points – 37 votes (5 Top 5, 3 top 10 )

2013 – 4th  

2014 – 3rd   

2016 –4th    

2018 – 7th 

My personal ranking – 41st – Consistently in my top 2 Pixar Films for years. Now it is about 4th.

 

 

  

That is two films in the top 10 that are doing so for the fifth time out of five.

 

That is also two films that are finding themselves in their lowest position to date despite how crazy high it is.

 

That is also the second film in a row to receive a less well received follow up in the past couple of years or so.

 

The difference is that while I was hoping to see Aladdin finish right at the top of the standings, I was kind of expecting Incredibles to do so. Therefore seeing them both merely finish very high instead of stupidly high, this was more of a disappointment for Incredibles I feel.

Toy Story's best order is 3, 1, (the top two are a virtual tie) 2, .....................................4.  I'd have had this movie at #2 with Lion King at #1 (unless my mood changed, and then maybe I'd swap them:).  That probably would have put it back at its needed top tier status.  When you can end the perfect trilogy as well as this movie did, it's a world-class movie.  I cannot think of another trilogy which earned its tone perfect and story perfect ending.  And it was such a perfect progression to get there - there were no plot holes, story leaps, try hards...nope, just a perfectly written and executed trilogy.  Just like Return of the King, you reward the ending more than the beginning if it sticks the landing (although for both, the beginnings are in a virtual tie with the end for quality of the movies, with the middle slipping a little:)...

 

PS - We finally have proven we are not the same person in this ranking:)...

I’m just looking at the list now, and while there’s a lot of things that are depressingly too low like Bambi, Batman or Stitch, for instant but I have one question:

 

How on earth did stuff like Frozen and Big Hero 6 make the top 50, yet Megamind or American Tail couldn’t even make top 100?

28th – Grave of the Fireflies

484 points – 16 votes ( 1 First, 3 Top 5 , 3 top 10 )

2013 – Not in top 25   

2014 – 61st 

2016 –32nd  

2018 – 17th 

My personal ranking – First – I make no bones about considering this to be the best animated film of all time. Fully understand why it is not for all.

 

 

 

Another Ghibli film based on existing literature and what a film it is. One of the hardest films a person will ever watch, Fireflies is a real gut punch of a film and one that will stick with most people that watch it. To be honest, people not liking it makes sense to me, people thinking it is great makes sense to me, I do find it harder to understand placing it like 70th. Just seems a film that you wouldn’t place in the ‘yeah, pretty good’ bracket.

 

As far as its list history is concerned, this is a slight drop from the high point of 2018. It is still a good improvement on its first bow of 61st and suggests that it can be here to stay as a film ready to challenge for top 20 each time around.

Never heard of this movie. Something to add to my watchlist. Great contest/thread @chasmmi

58th – Toy Story 4

314 points – 17 votes ( 0 top 10 )

2013 – Not in Top 25

2014 – Not Eligible   

2016 –Not Eligible

2018 – Not Eligible

My personal ranking – Not in Top 100 – For Me there are only 2 Toy Story films that are top 100 worthy, and this is not one of them. Not by a long shot.  

 

 

 

I found Toy Story 4 to be very mediocre. No scrap that, the first half is just plain dull and not much at all. Then in the second half everything changes and it becomes aggressively fine.

 

In my eyes, this is a film that will peak with its first placement on this list and then slowly fall more and more over the next few installments.

 

Toy Story 4 is my favorite Toy story <_<

I'm not a very big fan of Finding Nemo either.. :unsure:

Look, just because the Crab boi thinks its a "subversive masterpiece", it doesn't mean the rest of us think so.

 

It's merely good/decent. Not Top 100 worthy in my book.

I’m not a fan of TS3 at all (didn’t bother watching TS4). TS2 was a perfectly good wrapup of their story, for me. 

 

Continue with that wise strategy - I made the mistake of giving in b/c of the relative positivity around the release (and b/c it was free on one of my streaming services:)...

 

And I was reminded of a campaign from my youth - Just Say No:)...I gave in, when I should have kept saying no...
