Five For Eleven

Pixar films is an astounding story--they've released eleven feature films, all critically approved, all hits. For the record, the films are:

Toy Story (1995)
A Bug's Life (1998)
Toy Story 2 (1999)
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Finding Nemo (2003)
The Incredibles (2004)
Cars (2006)
Ratatouille (2007)
WALL-E (2008)
Up (2009)
Toy Story 3 (2010)

Here's another list--the five best Pixar films according to a guy named Cam Cammon:

5. Ratatouille
4. Toy Story
3. Finding Nemo
2. Toy Story 2
1. The Incredibles

I don't think #5 would make my list, and probably not #3. But what bothers me most is rating Toy Story 2 above Toy Story. This is getting as common as seeing The Empire Strikes Back over Star Wars (A New Hope). The first Toy Story is still the greatest--it created all the major characters and the basic situation; everything since is just playing in that world (in a less organic way). People overrate the sequel because it has some very sappy stuff in it.

I'm also surprised to see a list of Pixar films these days that doesn't include either Up or WALL-E.

Pretty soon there'll be three Toy Story films in the top five.
