    Finding Nemo was pretty great, but Up, Incredibles, and Wall-E were all better. Monsters Inc. and Ratatouille didn't impress me too much. Better than Cars or Bug's life though.

    it makes me sad when i hear about people not liking wall-e

    i mean, opinions and everything, but i just find that movie to be so wonderful that i am dumbfounded by anyone who thinks otherwise. it's one of the only movies that i love that i feel that way about, honestly.

    Ratatouille kinda annoyed me at the end when the critic basically said that we aren't allowed to have opinions.

    did he

    he was commenting on the role of a critic as a profession

    In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.

    A Bug's Life and Cars rank on the bottom for me

    The Incredibles and Up are the top

    Finding Nemo and Wall-E are probably 3rd/4th

    Ratatouille in 5th or 6th

    I love the Pixar movies but among there there are definitely ones that stand out more than others

    Where does Monsters Inc. fall on this scale

    probably alongside Ratatouille

    I honestly would've liked it more if Ice Age hadn't come out at the same time

    granted Monsters Inc did a much better job with their PRACTICALLY IDENTICAL PREMISES but all the same

    I dunno it took away from the Monsters Inc experience a bit

    ...wait what?

    I don't understand

    How were those two premises similar?

    I mean maybe I'm spacing on the Monsters Inc. story but I remember it being very different than Ice Age
    animals that no longer exist/do not exist find a human child intruding into their world and they have to try to return the child back to where it came from?

    no similarlities in that premise AT ALL?

    The last change my life movie that I saw was Magnolia. I even accepted the fact that people started randomly singing for no reason it was so good. If I hadn't seen that movie I would probably be a lot more arrogant than I am.

    but out of all these old disney movies which one is the best since maybe now i'll tolerate it as i'm 26 now as opposed to 8.

    Accidentally amusing. Kind of sums up Chevy's career.

    In reply to whomever mentioned Caddy Shack: Bill Murry and Rodney make that movie what it is. Chevy was tolerable. Part of his 10% that isn't shit.

    But see there are a million different things in the world.

    I can't try them all.

    A critiques job is to help my selection.

    They do have a point, to seperate the wheat from the chaff.

    Talking them down a saying that their opinion is rubbish just because they have gave you a bad review is laughable. They're a score on a test. And you failed. While it might be true that it might not be to the critiques personal taste a good reviewer should be able to look past what they like, and judge it on what it is.
