Phil’s Top 5… Pixar Films

Phil’s Top 5… Pixar Films

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Best Pixar Films

 

Close but no cigar: The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Inside Out, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 2

 

5 – Toy Story
The first ever feature length CG animated film.  Groundbreaking in every way and whilst the technology ahs moved on it’s the focus on characters, people and story that won the day here.  Without Toy Story modern cinema would be VERY different.

 

4 – Monsters Inc
John Goodman as a big fluffy monster scaring children?  The fact we were all IN on that concept was a given but we just didn’t know how much of a joy Monsters Inc. would be.

 

3 – Toy Story 3
Heartbreaking, inspirational and uplifting, Toy Story 3 ended out what was one of cinemas best trilogies on a near perfect note

2 – Wall-E
What other studio could get away with making a film where the lead character hardly speaks and there’s next to no dialogue for the first part of the film?


1 – Up
It made you laugh. It made you cry. It even killed off a character in the first 10 minutes.  Man Up is brutal.  But it’s also the most amazing Pixar movie. It’s just beautiful.
