Top 5 Pixar Movies


Oscar Barron, Staff Writer

You’re at home bored or somewhere else and want to watch a movie but are having a hard time deciding on which movie to watch. Well here are the top 5 Pixar movies you should watch. These top 5 Pixar movies include the top 5 movies Pixar has released in my opinion, This list includes the movies Toy Story, Ratatouille, Cars, Up, and Coco.

I decided to put these movies on the list because they’re the movies I’ve watched more and have really made me enjoy them when I watch them and every time I watch I get the same reaction, and I never get bored of watching them. I made this list because I wanted to let people know about these movies if they hadn’t heard of them before, and if they had it would be a great way to let them remember them, and maybe by remembering them about these movies it would make them remember their childhood which I hope will make them feel happy about it. 

Toy Story

The first toy story movie was released on November 22, 1995. Toy Story is so funny because deep down, it’s actually a very melancholy film. Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz’s (Tim Allen) battle for Andy’s (John Morris) love speaks to everyone’s fear of being replaced. Out of all the Pixar movies listed here, this one is the one I’ve watched the most, and I ranked it in the first place because I like how even though woody tried to get rid of buzz throughout their journey of trying to get back he tried to stick with him in order for both of them to go back with andy. 


Ratatouille was released on June 29, 2007. The plot follows the rat named Remy (Patton Oswalt), who dreams of becoming a chef and tries to achieve his goal by forming an alliance with a Parisian restaurant’s garbage boy Alfredo linguini (Lou Romano). I like this movie because it goes through the relationship between Remy and linguini and how they work together to make the best dishes and I like how they stick together through all the good and bad things. 


The first cars movie Pixar released was on June 9, 2006. While traveling to California to race against The King (Richard Petty) and Chick Hicks (Michael Keaton) for the Piston Cup Championship, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) becomes lost after falling out of his trailer in a run-down town called Radiator Springs. While there he slowly befriends the town’s odd residents, including Sally, Doc Hudson, and Mater. One thing I really liked about this movie was the chronological order it was written out and how everything played out. I liked how McQueen made a relationship with everyone at Radiator Springs and how the experiences he went through and changed his point of view.


Up was released on May 29, 2009. The movie Up is about an elderly widower named Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) and an earnest boy named Russell (Jordan Nagai); by tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets out to fulfill his dream to see the wilds of South America and complete a promise made to his late wife, Ellie. One thing I really liked about this movie was the relationship between Carl and Russell and how over time Carl started to care more about Russell and how in the end they were able to save Kevin.


The story follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living and to reverse his family’s ban on music. I really liked the message about bringing people together through music and family.  I liked Miguel’s character because even though he and Mama Coco brought love and music back he still learns how important his family is.  Miguel and Mama Coco were able to bring music back because they realize that if they want to be a good family, they have to be good listeners.
